With its comprehensive coverage of the state of the art, this second edition of the book introduces the basic types of transformers and electric machines and also discusses advanced subjects in electric machines, starting from principles, to applications and case studies with ample graphical results.
The first volume, Electric Machines: Steady State Performance with MATLAB® covers circuit modeling characteristics and performance characteristics under steady state, testing techniques and preliminary electromagnetic-thermic dimensioning. This book is intended for first semester course, treating electric transformers, rotary and linear machines steady state modeling and performance computation, preliminary dimensioning and testing standardized and innovative techniques.
The second volume, Electric Machines: Transients, Control Principles, Finite Element Analysis and Optimal Design with MATLAB® is intended for second (and third) semester course, treating topics such as modeling of transients, control principles, electromagnetic and thermal finite element Analysis and optimal design (dimensioning). Notable recent knowledge with strong industrialization potential has been added to this edition, such as, orthogonal models of multiphase A.C. machines, thermal finite element analysis of (FEA) electric machines, and FEA– based–only optimal design of a PM motor case study.
Both the volumes include numerical examples and case studies, and numerous computer simulation programs in MATLAB and Simulink® are also available online that illustrate performance characteristics present in the chapters.
