Overview

Most references on AC and DC drives pay scant attention to electronic variable speed drives. This timely resource fills a longtime gap in the literature by zeroing on this crucial topic, providing today's technicians with the information they need for proper maintenance and troubleshooting of these devices. Divided into two main sections, the book introduces simple circuits in the early chapters, then offers increasingly complex material, finally building up to troubleshooting issues. Included are appendices that review DC and AC motors and power semiconductors, numerous illustrations and schematics, plenty of end-of-chapter review questions, and a concise glossary.
