Overview


This one-of-a-kind book gets its distinction from a total commitment to electronic variable speed drives and provides the essential information maintenance technicians need to understand DC and inverter drive technology. Logically structured, Electronic Variable Speed Drives, 3E begins with fundamental drive circuits and builds to an understanding of more complex drive circuits for improved learning. Troubleshooting and maintenance are emphasized throughout, and abundant waveform schematics help guide the reader's understanding of the theory of operation of the different types of drives and their circuitry. This updated third edition includes two new chapters on digital regenerative DC drives and frequency inverters, as well as the mechanical installation, electrical installation, set-up, tuning, programming, operating, and troubleshooting of each drive.
