He has spent the majority of his career working directly with area industries, where he taught electricians and technicians directly on the factory floor. This training included installation, troubleshooting, and repair of major automation and motor control systems. The author has integrated this practical approach to troubleshooting and repair into this text, which includes the theory of operation of all traditional motor control components and circuits as well as state-of-the-art controls and control systems used with programmable controllers and robots.

The author taught courses to technicians and engineers in these companies, and he was able to work side by side with some of the best electricians and electrical technicians in the world, troubleshooting their most complex problems. At these times, the author became their student, and they taught him the tricks and troubleshooting procedures that consistently located and repaired electrical problems. These procedures have been documented and are included in every chapter of this text.

Thomas Kissell has written numerous other books, including Understanding and Using Programmable Controllers; Motors, Controls and Circuits for Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Systems; Modern Industrial/Electrical Motor Controls; Electricity Fluid Power and Mechanical Systems for Industrial Maintenance; Electricity, Electronics and Control Systems for ITVAC; Industrial Electronics, 2nd ed.; and a lab manual for industrial electronics.
