Special Electric Machines
Universities Press, Apr 15, 2009 - Technology & Engineering - 262 pages
This book brings together in a single volume the theory, construction, design, control electronics, and in-depth analysis of several non-traditional machines such as stepper motors, switched reluctance motors, permanent magnet DC machines, brushless DC machines, and linear induction machines. These machines are finding ever-increasing applications, typically in position control systems, robotics and mechatronics, electric vehicles, and high speed transportation. A particular feature of this book is that it does not stop at the basic principles of these complex machines but goes on to cover recent developments and current research, making it useful for senior graduate students and research scholars in the field of electrical machines and drives.
