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.

Power Integrity: Measuring, Optimizing, and Troubleshooting Power Related Parameters in Electronics Systems provides field-tested techniques for producing high-fidelity measurements using the appropriate equipment. The book thoroughly discusses measurement guidelines, test instrument selection and use, connecting the equipment to the device being tested, and interpreting the acquired data. The latest electronics technologies and their impact on measurement are discussed. Detailed photographs, screenshots, schematics, and equations are included throughout this practical guide.

Originally published in 1985, this revised edition explores power systems from the point of view of the central control facility. It covers the elements of transmission networks, bus reference frame, network fault and contingency calculations, power flow on transmission networks, generator base power setting, and state estimation from on-line measurements.
The author develops methods used for full-scale networks. In the process of coding and execution, the user learns how the methods apply to actual networks, develops an understanding of the algorithms, and becomes familiar with the process of varying the parameters of the program.
Intended for users with a background that includes AC circuit theory, some basic control theory, and a first course in electronic machinery, this book contains material based upon the author’s experience both in the field and in the classroom, as well as many Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) publications. His mathematical approach and complete explanations allow readers to develop a solid foundation in power systems analysis.
This second edition includes a CD-ROM with stand-alone software to perform computations of all principles covered in the chapters. Executable programs include 0,1,2 conversions, double-hung shielded transmission line parameters, zero and positive bus impedance computations for unbalanced faults, power flow, unit commitment, and state estimation.
