Electrical Engineering: Principles and Applications

 
9780137368778: Electrical Engineering: Principles and Applications

Designed specifically for non-majors, this user-friendly text provides a solid foundation in the basics of circuits, electronics (analog and digital), and electromechanics and shows students how the principles apply to interesting, specific, real problems in their own fields.

Features and Benefits

Written for users (rather than designers) of circuits, electronics, and electrical machines. Offers a "frustration-free" approach that anticipates students trouble spots and provides answers for their most frequently asked questions. A self-contained treatment reviews prerequisite topics such as complex numbers and differential equations. Intersperses short, boxed articles throughout showing how basic electrical engineering concepts are applied in other engineering fields, e.g.- - Anti-knock signal-processing circuits for internal combustion engines. - A cardiac pacemaker. - The use of the Global Position System in surveying. - Batteries for electric/hybrid vehicles. - Signal-processing for automotive-ignition control. Contains an introduction to computer-aided analysis using PSpice. Provides an abundance of material - allowing instructors to select/omit topics to meet the needs of their particular students/classes. Includes objectives, worked examples, exercises with answers, summaries, and numerous homework problems for each chapter.
