The new edition aims to simplify the math, emphasize the theory, and consolidate the information needed by electrical engineers and technicians who support operations, maintenance, protective relay systems, and betterment projects for generating stations and industrial facilities. It begins with a cursory review of basic electrical phenomenon and then provides additional insights into electrical theory. Single phase and three phase electrical theory is explained in a simplified manner that is not presented in other books. All chapters have been expanded and updated, with the inclusion of an entirely new chapter.
"This is a first-class book full of information for engineers and technicians working across a range of industries. The information in the book is of enormous practical value and is clearly explained without much of the academic waffle that you will find in many other books. The knowledge that you will gain from this book would take years of practical effort and reading of many, many books that are often fairly incomprehensible."
—David Hughes, electrical engineer, consultant, and training instructor for the petroleum industry in Scotland
"Electrical power engineers will appreciate having this book. It is like having your own expert available any time you want."
