Basics of electric motors: including polyphase induction and synchronous motors
This informative text clearly explains the technical aspects of electric motors in nontechnical language. It is divided into two sections: (1) electric motors -- types, characteristics, operation, maintenance, and application, and (2) properties, of electricity and magnetism associated with motor action.
