    Not what I thought it was - wanted more automation not electronics

  • By R. England on 1 March 2009

    I am studying Mechatronics, and there are many modules on the course which require an understanding of power electronics. The book is concise and gives worked examples of different motors, control electronics and inverters. Also works in 1 2 and 3 phase, and explains phase shifts and imaginary numbers very well.,

    This is a great book for anyone who needs to go in-depth into the world of electric motors. It covers all the basics about electricity and magnetism that you need to go on and fully understand how transformers and electric motors work. There is also a good section about power transmission, distribution and use.I get the feeling this is one of those books I'll be referring to in years to come!

    I studied Mechanical Engineering at University and unfortunately had no option but do several modules on electronics and electrical engineering. However, for my second year module "Electrical Power" this was the recommended text book, and I have to say that it really helped. I always found the electrical stuff challenging as it doesn't come naturally to me the way that the maths and physics of the mechanical parts of the course did. I spent a fair bit of time using this text book, and throughout the semester it helped my understanding of electrical machines and the underlying principles. It is very good at explaining about the different types of power (real, reactive, apparent) and has good sections on transformers and the related theory. The chapter on electric motors is also of a very high standard. If you are like me and not the biggest fan of "leccy" stuff, then this book should help you through said leccy modules.PS The fact that I remembered the three types of power when typing this review out (It's 3 years since I did the module) is testament to the ability of this book to help you learn!

    Great book if you are looking at HND/BNeng course material. It is some what out of date with the equipment shown but other than that it appears a reasonable study book. The examples and methods shown in the book are mainly in SI units but for some reason it also has a number in imperial but this could be down to the book being from a Candian lecturer.

    Amazing book with an additional section on power electronics, everything is explained thoroughly. It's my favourite book for my degree so far (electrical power engineering). Has attracted my interest in topics I used to overlook. Lots of worked examples and exercises, useful figures and graphs.
