Electric Motors and Drives is intended for non-specialist users of electric motors and drives, filling the gap between theory-based academic textbooks and the more prosaic ‘handbooks’, which provide useful detail but little opportunity for the development of real insight and understanding.
The book explores all of the widely-used modern types of motor and drive, including conventional and brushless D.C., induction motors and servo drives, providing readers with the knowledge to select the right technology for a given job. Austin Hughes’ approach, using a minimum of maths, has established Electric Motors and Drives as a leading guide for engineers, and the key to a complex subject for a wider readership, including technicians, managers and students.
* Acquire essential practical knowledge of motors and drives, with a minimum of math and theory
* Updated material on the latest and most widely-used modern motors and drives
* New edition includes additional diagrams and worked examples throughout
“Very readable, up-to-date and extremely useful to both users and o.e.m. designers. I unhesitatingly recommend it to any busy engineer who needs to make informed judgments about selecting the right drive system.”
