Overview

Reflecting new technologies and the latest practices in the field, ELECTRICAL TRANSFORMERS AND ROTATING MACHINES, 3E delivers thorough coverage of theory and practical applications of electrical machines. It begins with a study of magnetism and magnetic induction, single-phase isolation transformers, current transformers, and autotransformers. A unit on three-phase power covers basic connections and calculations before proceeding into transformers. In addition, numerous experiments reinforce theory with hands-on application. A unique combination of transformers and motors makes this book an excellent resource for electrical students and practitioners alike.
