Overview

In this revised and expanded edition, Howard E. Jordan explains-in a clear manner-the technology of energy efficient electric motors including motor losses, testing, and efficiency labeling. He also discusses how to calculate the return on investment for an energy efficient motor in addition to several other subjects related to effective motor applications. New chapters explore permanent magnet synchronous motors and transistor pulse-width-modulated inverters. Engineers, purchasing managers, and executives who make decisions on motor selection will find this an invaluable reference.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
For engineers and contractors, as well as others who don't specialize in motor technology, this guide provides the technological background and understanding for selecting and using electric motors to accomplish their task with minimum energy consumption. It is primarily directed toward polyphase induction motors, but some discussion is included on single-phase, excited-field synchronous, and synchronous reluctance machines. An entire section in this edition (the first edition was published in 1983 by Van Nostrand Reinhold) is devoted to the permanent-magnet synchronous motor. A chapter is also devoted to adjustable-speed motor drives. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
