Overview

Finally, an electricity text written for your students!

Frank Petruzella's Electricity for the Trades is a practical text for students' first course in electricity. Having worked as both a tradesman and classroom instructor, author Frank Petruzella provides a uniquely practical, hands-on approach to learning electrical fundamentals, with a wealth of applications and procedures apprentices will be using in their work. This preliminary volume starts with coverage of key background topics, with an emphasis on safety and tools of the trade; and then moves into DC and AC circuit essentials. Inductance and capacitance are covered in an applied way,preparing students for subsubsequent work with motors and generators. The text contains a wealth of illustrations and worked examples related directly to trades-oriented work.
