The field of electrical engineering is very innovative-new products and new ideas are continu ally being developed. Yet all these innovations are based on the fundamental principles of electrical engineering: Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's laws, feedback control, waveforms, capacitance, resistance, inductance, electricity, magnetism, current, voltage, power, energy. It is these basic fundamentals which are tested for in the Professional Engineering Examination (PE Exam). This text provides an organized review of the basic electrical engineering fundamentals. It is an outgrowth of an electrical engineering refresher course taught by the author to candidates preparing for the Professional Engineering Examination-a course which has enabled scores of electrical engineers in Minnesota and Wisconsin to successfully pass the PE Exam. The material is representative of the type of questions appearing in the PE Exams prepared by the National Council of Engineering Examiners (NCEE) over the past twelve years. Each problem in the text has been carefully selected to illustrate a specific concept. Included with each problem is at least one solution. Although the solutions have been carefully checked, both by the author and by students, there may be differences of interpretation. Also, in some cases certain assumptions may need to be made prior to problem solution, and since these to individual, the final answer may also differ. The assumptions will vary from individual author has attempted to keep the requirements for assumptions and interpretation to a mini mum.
This collection of solved electrical engineering problems should help you review for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and Principles and Practice (PE) exams. With this guide, you'll hone your skills as well as your understanding of both fundamental and more difficult topics. 100% problems and step-by-step solutions.
This guide is written for the afternoon FE/EIT Industrial Exam and reviews each topic with numerous example problems and complete step-by-step solutions. End-of-chapter problems with solutions and a complete sample exam with solutions are provided. Topics covered: Production Planning and Scheduling; Engineering Economics; Engineering Statistics; Statistical Quality Control; Manufacturing Processes; Mathematical Optimization and Modeling; Simulation; Facility Design and Location; Work Performance and Methods; Manufacturing Systems Design; Industrial Ergonomics; Industrial Cost Analysis; Material Handling System Design; Total Quality Management; Computer Computations and Modeling; Queuing Theory and Modeling; Design of Industrial Experiments; Industrial Management; Information System Design; Productivity Measurement and Management. 101 problems with complete solutions; SI Units.
Written by 6 professors, each with a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering; A detailed description of the examination and suggestions on how to prepare for it; 195 exam, essay, and multiple-choice problems with a total of 510 individual questions; A complete 24-problem sample exam; A detailed step-by-step solution for every problem in the book; This book may be used as a separate, stand-alone volume or in conjunction with Civil Engineering License Review, 14th Edition (0-79318-546-7). Its chapter topics match those of the License Review book. All of the problems have been reproduced for each chapter, followed by detailed step-by-step solutions. Similarly, the 24-problem sample exam (12 essay and 12 multiple-choice problems) is given, followed by step-by-step solutions to the exam. Engineers looking for a CE/PE review with problems and solutions will buy both books. Those who want only an elaborate set of exam problems, a sample exam, and detailed solutions to every problem will purchase this book. 100% problems and solutions.
Petroleum engineering now has its own true classic handbook that reflects the profession's status as a mature major engineering discipline.Formerly titled the Practical Petroleum Engineer's Handbook, by Joseph Zaba and W.T. Doherty (editors), this new, completely updated two-volume set is expanded and revised to give petroleum engineers a comprehensive source of industry standards and engineering practices. It is packed with the key, practical information and data that petroleum engineers rely upon daily.The result of a fifteen-year effort, this handbook covers the gamut of oil and gas engineering topics to provide a reliable source of engineering and reference information for analyzing and solving problems. It also reflects the growing role of natural gas in industrial development by integrating natural gas topics throughout both volumes.More than a dozen leading industry experts-academia and industry-contributed to this two-volume set to provide the best , most comprehensive source of petroleum engineering information available.
This new edition of the Standard Handbook of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering provides you with the best, state-of-the-art coverage for every aspect of petroleum and natural gas engineering. With thousands of illustrations and 1,600 information-packed pages, this text is a handy and valuable reference. Written by over a dozen leading industry experts and academics, the Standard Handbook of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering provides the best, most comprehensive source of petroleum engineering information available. Now in an easy-to-use single volume format, this classic is one of the true "must haves" in any petroleum or natural gas engineer's library. * A classic for the oil and gas industry for over 65 years! * A comprehensive source for the newest developments, advances, and procedures in the petrochemical industry, covering everything from drilling and production to the economics of the oil patch. * Everything you need - all the facts, data, equipment, performance, and principles of petroleum engineering, information not found anywhere else. * A desktop reference for all kinds of calculations, tables, and equations that engineers need on the rig or in the office. * A time and money saver on procedural and equipment alternatives, application techniques, and new approaches to problems.
Here are 111 problems, solutions, and explanations for the topics on the Electrical Engineering Exam. Easy-to-use tables, charts, graphs, and formulas provide the background needed to solve the problems.Topics covered: * Fundamental Concepts of Electrical Engineering. * Basic Circuits. * Power. * Machinery. * Control Theory. * Electronics. * Communications. * Logic. 30% of this review book is text, and 70% are problems.
