This is an excellent book for engineers. It needs a chapter in modeling and simulation
for system engineers working in hybrid electric vehicles or aircraft auxliary and backup

for the electrification activities in all transportation vehicles and power devices used in
many applications including vehicles, power devices, and uninterruptible power systems
used during blackouts, equipment repairs, and other emergencies.
