About The Book Fundamentals Of Electrical Engineering
Book Summary:

This comprehensive book, in its third edition, continues to provide an in-depth analysis on the fundamental principles of electrical engineering. The exposition of these principles is fully reinforced by many practical problems that illustrate the concepts discussed.

Beginning with a precise and quantitative detailing of the basics of electrical engineering, the text moves on to explain the fundamentals of circuit theory, electrostatic and electromagnetism and further details on the concept of electromechanical energy conversion. The book provides an elaborate and systematic analysis of the working principle, applications and construction of each electrical machine. In addition to circuit responses under steady state conditions, the book contains the chapters on dynamic responses of networks and analysis of a three-phase circuit.

In this third edition, two chapters on Electrical Power System and Domestic Lighting have been added to fulfil the syllabus requirement of various universities. The chapters discuss different methods of generating electrical power, economic consideration and tariff of power system, illumination, light sources used in lighting systems, conductor size and insulation, lighting accessories used in wiring systems, fuses and MCBs, meter board, main switch and distribution board, earthing methods, types of wiring, wiring system for domestic use and cost estimation of wiring system.

Designed as a text for the undergraduate students of almost all branches of engineering, the book will also be useful to the practising engineers as reference.
