Electrical Engineering: Principles and ApplicationsThe author's guiding philosophy in writing this book has three elements: to present basic concepts to readers in a general setting, to show how the principles of electrical engineering apply to specific problems in their own fields, and to remove frustration from the learning process. Emphasizing the basic concepts of the field, this book covers circuit analysis, digital systems, electronics, and electromechanics. This book develops theoretical and experimental skills and experiences in the following areas: basic circuit analysis and measurement, first and secondorder transients, steadystate ac circuits, resonance and frequency response, digital logic circuits, microcontrollers (68HC11), computerbased instrumentation, diode circuits, electronic amplifiers, fieldeffect and bipolar junction transistors, operational amplifiers, ac and dc machines, and more. For engineers or any other professionals who need a solid foundation in the basics of circuits, digital systems, analog electronics, and electromechanics.

Review: Electrical Engineering: Principles and Applications
User Review  DJ  GoodreadsAn awful book but a good didactic opportunity. This book is a manifestation of the failure of education systems to inspire creativity and passion in students. It commits the mortal sin of "black ... Read full review
