This book presents comprehensive coverage of all the basic concepts in electrical engineering. It is designed for undergraduate students of almost all branches of engineering for an introductory course in essentials of electrical engineering.

This book explains in detail the properties of different electric circuit elements, such as resistors, inductors and capacitors. The fundamental concepts of dc circuit laws, such as Kirchhoff’s current and voltage laws, and various network theorems, such as Thevenin’s theorem, Norton’s theorem, superposition theorem, maximum power transfer theorem, reciprocity theorem and Millman’s theorem are thoroughly discussed. The book also presents the analysis of ac circuits, and discusses transient analysis due to switch operations in ac and dc circuits as well as analysis of three-phase circuits. It describes series and parallel RLC circuits, magnetic circuits, and the working principle of different kinds of transformers. In addition, the book explains the principle of energy conversion, the operating characteristics of dc machines, three-phase induction machines and synchronous machines as well as single-phase motors. Finally, the book includes a discussion on technologies of electric power generation along with the different types of energy sources.

Key Features :

Includes numerous solved examples and illustrations for sound conceptual understanding.

Provides well-graded chapter-end problems to develop the problem-solving capability of the students.

Supplemented with three appendices addressing matrix algebra, trigonometric identities and Laplace transforms of commonly used functions to help students understand the mathematical concepts required for the study of electrical engineering.

Although it is one of the oldest sectors of electronics and now somewhat taken for granted, radio frequency transmission literally changed our world. Today, it is still the backbone of myriad applications, from broadcasting to electronic counter-measures. The wide variety of hardware in use means that those working in the field must be familiar with a multitude of principles and applications, but finding an up-to-date, comprehensive source for this background material has been difficult, if not impossible.

The RF Transmission Systems Handbook addresses the underlying concepts, operation, and maintenance of high-power RF devices, transmission lines, and antennas for broadcast, scientific, and industrial use. Focusing on devices and systems that produce more than one kilowatt of output power, the handbook explores the following major topics:

Applications: The common uses of radio frequency energy
Fundamental principles: The basic technologies, concepts, and techniques used in RF transmission
Power vacuum devices: The principles and applications of gridded vacuum tubes and microwave power devices
Solid-state power devices: The operating parameters of semiconductor-based power devices
RF components and transmission lines: The operation of hardware used to combine and conduct RF power
Antenna systems: The different types of antennas and their basic operating parameters
Troubleshooting: Basic troubleshooting techniques and the operation of important test instruments

Contrary to the perceptions of many, RF technology remains a dynamic field that continues to advance to higher power levels and higher frequencies. Those who specify, install, and maintain RF equipment will welcome this reference that uniquely serves their needs.
