| About The Book Electric Drives
This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental concepts of electric drives and is eminently suited as a textbook for B.E./B.Tech., AMIE and diploma courses in electrical engineering. It can also be used most effectively by all those preparing for GATE and UPSC competitive examinations, as well as by practising engineers. The topics, which range from principles and techniques to industrial applications, include characteristic features of drives, methods of braking and speed control, electromagnetic and solid state control of motors, motor ratings, transients in drive systems, and operation of stepper motors.
Covers the latest developments in the field of electric drives through a perfect balance of background material, essential information and technical details. Includes many worked-out examples that are analysed in detail. Provides a large number of problems with answers to help the reader to develop a sound understanding of the concepts discussed. Devotes an entire chapter to industrial applications and relevant examples.
