Electrician's Technical Reference — Motors builds an understanding of the operation, theory and applications of motors. It provides information on troubleshooting different types of motors and includes some of the latest information on the EPACT laws. This is the perfect source for engineers in the industrial, electrical, mechanical and civil fields. This series of technical reference books is designed to provide the electrician, electrical contractor, industrial maintenance technician, and other electrical workers with a source of reference information about virtually all of the electrical topics that they encounter. Each topic is written by an expert in that subject matter. The modular format makes this a practical reference, and the volumes are kept to a very concise and easy-to-reference size. This series is sure to answer all of the electrical questions one might encounter on the job.
