Practical Electric Motor Handbook

Front Cover
Elsevier, Aug 21, 1997 - Technology & Engineering - 220 pages

Experienced product designers are increasingly expected to be adept at incorporating a range of components into their designs. Students and experimenters too need to look beyond basic circuits and devices to achieve adequate design solutions. For those experienced in engineering design, this is the guide to electric motors.

This book will allow engineers and designers to marry the technologies they know about with motor technology, and hence to incorporate motors into their products. Of the many good books on motors, such as Electric Motors and Drives by Hughes, none offer the engineering professional a tailored guide to motors taking into account their expertise. This book fills that gap.

Irving Gottlieb is a leading author of many books for practising engineers, technicians and students of electronic and electrical engineering.
