Alternating Current Machines
This revised text remains the same as the previously successful editions in that emphasis is on machine performance rather than design, though design is discussed where it bears on performance. Covers transformers and standard polyphase machines. A new chapter deals with types and applications of special transformers, induction machines, and synchronous machines. Other chapters have been expanded and updated. Includes problems with answers for each chapter.
