Real-world engineering problems are rarely, if ever, neatly divided into mechanical, electrical, chemical, civil, and other categories. Engineers from all disciplines eventually encounter computer and electronic controls and instrumentation, which require at least a basic knowledge of electrical and other engineering specialties, as well as associated economics, and environmental, political, and social issues. Co-authored by Charles Gross—one of the most well-known and respected professors in the field of electric machines and power engineering—and his world-renowned colleague Thad Roppel, Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering provides an overview of the profession for engineering professionals and students whose specialization lies in areas other than electrical. For instance, civil engineers must contend with commercial electrical service and lighting design issues. Mechanical engineers have to deal with motors in HVAC applications, and chemical engineers are forced to handle problems involving process control. Simple and easy-to-use, yet more than sufficient in rigor and coverage of fundamental concepts, this resource teaches EE fundamentals but omits the typical analytical methods that hold little relevance for the audience. The authors provide many examples to illustrate concepts, as well as homework problems to help readers understand and apply presented material. In many cases, courses for non-electrical engineers, or non-EEs, have presented watered-down classical EE material, resulting in unpopular courses that students hate and senior faculty members understandingly avoid teaching. To remedy this situation—and create more well-rounded practitioners—the authors focus on the true EE needs of non-EEs, as determined through their own teaching experience, as well as significant input from non-EE faculty. The book provides several important contemporary interdisciplinary examples to support this approach. The result is a full-color modern narrative that bridges the various EE and non-EE curricula and serves as a truly relevant course that students and faculty can both enjoy.

This comprehensive book, in its third edition, continues to provide an in-depth analysis on the fundamental principles of electrical engineering. The exposition of these principles is fully reinforced by many practical problems that illustrate the concepts discussed. Beginning with a precise and quantitative detailing of the basics of electrical engineering, the text moves on to explain the fundamentals of circuit theory, electrostatic and electromagnetism and further details on the concept of electromechanical energy conversion. The book provides an elaborate and systematic analysis of the working principle, applications and construction of each electrical machine. In addition to circuit responses under steady state conditions, the book contains the chapters on dynamic responses of networks and analysis of a three-phase circuit. In this third edition, two chapters on Electrical Power System and Domestic Lighting have been added to fulfil the syllabus requirement of various universities. The chapters discuss different methods of generating electrical power, economic consideration and tariff of power system, illumination, light sources used in lighting systems, conductor size and insulation, lighting accessories used in wiring systems, fuses and MCBs, meter board, main switch and distribution board, earthing methods, types of wiring, wiring system for domestic use and cost estimation of wiring system. Designed as a text for the undergraduate students of almost all branches of engineering, the book will also be useful to the practising engineers as reference. Key Features • Discusses statements with numerical examples • Includes answers to the numerical problems at the end of the book • Enhances learning of the basic working principles of electrical machines by using a number of supporting examples, review questions and illustrative examples

The technical systems we develop today are complicated. The challenges vehicle manufacturers are facinginvolve a combination of the fields of electronics, mechanics, control engineering, telecommunications, computer engineering, and software programming in order to realise the required functionality. This multi-disciplinary field of engineering is called mechatronics, and one of the key disciplines in this field is electronic engineering. Consequently, knowledge of the basic laws and principles of electronic engineering is mandatory for anyone who wants to work in the field of mechatronics. This book therefore explains the fundamentals of electrical engineering with an emphasis on mechatronic systems. Starting with basic laws, the main focus is on circuit analysis, including DC and AC circuits, transient effects, filters and oscillating circuits. Basic circuit elements are introduced as well as more complex semiconductor devices like operational amplifiers, biopolar junction transistors and MOSFET field-effect transistors. Finally, a short introduction to the important field of circuit simulation completes the book. The latest vehicles are classic examples of mechatronic systems. Automotive applications are therefore used throughout the book as examples to demonstrate the application of the discussed topics in a mechatronic environment.
