9780080983325: Electric Motors and Drives: Fundamentals, Types and Applications

"Electric Motors and Drives" is intended for non-specialist users of electric motors and drives, filling the gap between maths - and theory-based academic textbooks and the more prosaic 'handbooks', which provide useful detail but little opportunity for the development of real insight and understanding. The book explores all of the widely-used modern types of motor and drive, including conventional and brushless D.C., induction motors and servo drives, providing readers with the knowledge to select the right technology for a given job. The third edition includes additional diagrams and worked examples throughout. New topics include digital interfacing and control of drives, direct torque control of induction motors and current-fed operation in DC drives. The material on brushless servomotors has also been expanded. Austin Hughes' approach, using a minimum of maths, has established "Electric Motors and Drives" as a leading guide for electrical engineers and mechanical engineers, and the key to a complex subject for a wider readership, including technicians, managers and students. Acquire knowledge of and understanding of the capabilities and limitations of motors and drives without struggling through unnecessary maths and theory. It offers updated material on the latest and most widely-used modern motors and drives, including brushless servomotors. New edition includes additional diagrams and worked examples throughout.

Review:

"This book is very readable, up-to-date and should be extremely useful to both users and o.e.m. designers. I unhesitatingly recommend it to any busy engineer who needs to make informed judgments about selecting the right drive system." - Drives and Controls "A very useful reference book for anyone wanting a comprehensive understanding of motors and drives ... I have not seen another book which covers this wide subject more comprehensively and in such an easy-to-read style." - Silicon Chip, May 2006 "I would regard this book as a light but broad coverage of many motor and drive concepts that have been around a long time." - Dennis Feucht, Innovatia.com "The coverage of drive types and behaviors is thorough and up to date." --Electrical Apparatus, May 2006
