Electric Motors and Drives: Fundamentals, Types and Applications
Electric Motors and Drives: Fundamentals, Types and Applications, Fifth Edition is intended for non-specialist users of electric motors and drives, filling the gap between mathematics and theory-based academic textbooks and more prosaic 'handbooks' which provide useful detail, but little opportunity for the development of true insights and understanding. The book explores all of the widely-used modern types of motor and drives, including conventional and brushless D.C. and induction motors and servo drives, providing readers with the knowledge to select the right technology for a given job. This new edition includes additional diagrams and worked examples throughout.
New topics include digital interfacing and control of drives, direct torque control of induction motors, and current-fed operation in DC drives. The material on brushless servomotors has also been expanded.
