A.C. generators: design and application
The author had over 40 years experience of designing A.C. generators and in this book he has distilled his knowledge into a sound, practical description of the design and application of A.C. generators. He concentrates on the engineering principles involved and, as far as possible, avoids the lengthy use of equations, though a comprehensive list of references provides information on sources of the various calculations and theory that are necessary in designing generators. This book explains the effects of the many different approaches that are possible, and shows how various parts of a design affect other aspects of the performance thereby giving guidance on which can be sacrificed for the general good.
