Overview

Designed to provide readers with a thorough introduction to Alternating Current electrical characteristics and circuit construction, AC THEORY, 3rd edition explores the complexities of this more advanced circuit theory by building on the basics established in direct current theory. The book begins with an overview of the primary components of AC circuits, such as resistors, inductors, and capacitors, and then gradually introduces new, more complicated topics like applying AC principles in power generation and generators, parallel and combination circuits, troubleshooting and evaluation of circuit conditions, and more. With the same reader-friendly approach and practical examples that made previous editions so successful, this updated 3rd edition uses the most current technologies and trends to provide an ideal resource for anyone seeking a fundamental knowledge of AC theory. Check out our app, DEWALT Mobile Pro™. This free app is a construction calculator with integrated reference materials and access to hundreds of additional calculations as add-ons.
