Digital systems, computer engineering, communications, imaging… the ever-increasing specialization within the field of electrical engineering led many schools to shift their traditional energy conversion courses from the core electrical engineering curricula to the elective curricula. Recently, however, the ongoing search for renewable energy, the societal impact of blackouts, the environmental impact of generating electricity, along with the new ABET criterion have contributed to renewed interest in electric energy as a core subject.

Electric Energy: An Introduction effectively reinvents the traditional electric energy course into one relevant to all electrical and most mechanical engineering students. Along with the standard topics of power electronics and electromechanical conversion, the text also covers energy resources, power plants, environmental impacts of power generation, power system operation, renewable energy, and electrical safety. Most of the topics are related to issues encountered daily in practice, and most of the examples are from real systems and use real data.

Emphasis on modeling and analysis, a flexible structure, and exceptional relevance to real-life issues make this text an outstanding choice. It brings together for the first time all of the topics needed to build the broad-based background today's engineers - and the engineers of tomorrow - need.
