Overview

Master the basic topics and fundamental concepts underlying electric machines, power electronics, and electric drives with FUNDAMENTALS OF ELECTRIC DRIVES, 2nd Edition. While other books on electric drives concentrate on converters and waveform analysis and ignore mechanical load dynamics or emphasize motor characteristics with little analysis of converters and controllers, this unique approach provides a complete overview of the subject at a level that’s ideal for full comprehension. You follow the analysis and design of a complete electric drive system with coverage of mechanical loads, motors, converters, sensing, and controllers. The author clearly presents drive applications to electric traction, robotics, and wind energy using real examples from industry throughout. With its practical content, this book even serves as a useful reference for professional electric drive engineers.

  • NEW EXAMPLES AND EXERCISES CLARIFY CONCEPTS. Memorable, contemporary examples clearly demonstrate this edition’s concepts, while engaging exercises allow students to put the concepts they have just learned into practice.
  • THE POWER ELECTRONICS SECTION NOW FEATURES MORE DEVICES AND MORE POWER ELECTRONIC ANALYSES. The author also clearly introduces the basic principles and circuits for triggering the power electronic devices. Coverage includes both synchronization and isolation circuits.
  • NEW SECTIONS EMPHASIZE BRUSHLESS DC MOTORS. This new coverage added in Chapters 5 and 6 highlights topics such as the concepts of operation, modeling, speed control, and braking.
  • COVERAGE NOW DESCRIBES ANALYZES OF STATIC SCHERBIUS DRIVES FOR INDUCTION MACHINES. Students gain a better understanding of how this variable speed drive operates with the capability of bi-directional power flow.
  • THOROUGH COVERAGE ADDRESSES THE IMPORTANT TOPIC OF TRAJECTORY CONTROL. A complete understanding of trajectory control is particularly crucial when starting and braking times must be controlled. Expertise in this area is especially important in high-performance applications, such as today’s robotics and guided manipulations.
  • THIS EDITION CLEARLY PRESENTS THE EFFECT OF THE INHERENT CHARACTERISTIC OF MECHANICAL LOAD ON SPEED CHANGES. Today’s electrical engineering students and professionals gain both a strong conceptual understanding and practice experience.
  • ENGAGING REAL-WORLD EXAMPLES AND PROBLEMS REFLECT THE AUTHOR’S EXTENSIVE INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE. Interesting and compelling examples and actual professional challenges drawn from the author’s industry background emphasize the importance and practicality of the concepts that students are learning.
  • READER-FRIENDLY CONTENT CLEARLY PRESENTS METHODS REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE SPEED CONTROL, POSITION CONTROL, BRAKING, AND HOLDING OF A VARIETY OF ELECTRIC DRIVE SYSTEMS. Students gain the understanding they need to work with today’s most prominent systems.
  • THIS EDITION CLEARLY PRESENTS THE EFFECT OF THE INHERENT CHARACTERISTIC OF MECHANICAL LOAD ON SPEED CHANGES. Today’s electrical engineering students and professionals gain both a strong conceptual understanding and practice experience.
  • LECTURE NOTE POWERPOINT® SLIDES AND AN INSTRUCTOR’S SOLUTIONS MANUAL PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR A DYNAMIC LEARNING ENVIRONMENT. These and other important instructor resources are available online for your convenient access at this edition’s password-protected website.
  • MATERIAL COVERS STEADY-STATE AND DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF ELECTRIC DRIVE SYSTEMS. This edition presents the broad overview required to analyze, troubleshoot, and improve upon today’s electric drive systems.
