Release Date: 2010-12-12
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Often called the workhorse of industry, the advent of power electronics and advances in digital control are transforming the induction motor into the racehorse of industrial motion control. Now, the classic texts on induction machines are nearly three decades old, while more recent books on electric motors lack the necessary depth and detail on induction machines. The Induction Machine Handbook fills industry's long-standing need for a comprehensive treatise embracing the many intricate facets of induction machine analysis and design. Moving gradually from simple to complex and from standard to new knowledge, it includes an extended presentation of windings parameters as influenced by frequency and saturation, offers a complete account of standard and new testing methods, and devotes several chapters to the design of variable-speed induction motors. With a coherence and consistency not attainable in contributed works, this handbook draws on the authors' long experience in the field and takes full advantage of its rich literature. The presentation of all types of induction machines complete with many numerical examples, digital simulations, and design sample cases make the Induction Machine Handbook a comprehensive, up-to-date resource ideal for both for practicing and student engineers.

Practical Electric Motor Handbook

Author: Irving Gottlieb
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 0080514391
Release Date: 1997-08-21
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Experienced product designers are increasingly expected to be adept at incorporating a range of components into their designs. Students and experimenters too need to look beyond basic circuits and devices to achieve adequate design solutions. For those experienced in engineering design, this is the guide to electric motors. This book will allow engineers and designers to marry the technologies they know about with motor technology, and hence to incorporate motors into their products. Of the many good books on motors, such as Electric Motors and Drives by Hughes, none offer the engineering professional a tailored guide to motors taking into account their expertise. This book fills that gap. Irving Gottlieb is a leading author of many books for practising engineers, technicians and students of electronic and electrical engineering. Practical approach with minimum theory Covers a core area ignored by many electronics texts Shows how to incorporate motors into electronic products

Electric Machines

Author: Charles A. Gross
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781420008210
Release Date: 2006-10-20
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The two major broad applications of electrical energy are information processing and energy processing. Hence, it is no wonder that electric machines have occupied a large and revered space in the field of electrical engineering. Such an important topic requires a careful approach, and Charles A. Gross' Electric Machines offers the most balanced, application-oriented, and modern perspective on electromagnetic machines available. Written in a style that is both accessible and authoritative, this book explores all aspects of electromagnetic-mechanical (EM) machines. Rather than viewing the EM machine in isolation, the author treats the machine as part of an integrated system of source, controller, motor, and load. The discussion progresses systematically through basic machine physics and principles of operation to real-world applications and relevant control issues for each type of machine presented. Coverage ranges from DC, induction, and synchronous machines to specialized machines such as transformers, translational machines, and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Stimulating example applications include electric vehicles, wind energy, and vertical transportation. Numerous example problems illustrate and reinforce the concepts discussed. Along with appendices filled with unit conversions and background material, Electric Machines is a succinct, in-depth, and complete guide to understanding electric machines for novel applications.
