Pub. Date: 03/28/1996
Publisher: Cengage Delmar Learning
The third book in Delmar's Electricity 1-4 series, Electricity 3: Power, Generation and Delivery, 7th Edition introduces readers to DC and AC generation and distribution of power, including 3-phase power and transformers. Both AC and DC generators are explained in terms of operations and connection styles. Single-phase and three-phase generators and parallel connections are presented in detail, as well as transformers with various connections. This edition features new and improved photos and diagrams to better enable readers to tie theory and practice together into real-life situations. Any references to the National Electrical Code® have been updated, and some chapter material has also been rearranged to improve continuity. Specific objectives precede the introduction of each topic, while summaries and quiz items enable readers to measure their progress at the end of each chapter.
