Electrical Machines by S. K. Sahdev
An extensive and easy-to-read guide covering the fundamental concepts of electrical machines, highlighting transformers, motors, generators and magnetic circuits. It provides in-depth discussion on construction, working principles and applications of various electrical machines.
The design of transformers, functioning of generators and performance of induction motors are explained through descriptive illustrations, step-by-step solved examples and mathematical derivations. A separate chapter on special purpose machines offers important topics such as servomotors, brushless motors and stepper motors, which is useful from industrial perspective to build a customized machine. Supported by 400 solved examples, 600 figures, and more than 1000 self-assessment exercises, this is an ideal text for one or two-semester undergraduate courses on electrical machines under electrical and electronics engineering.
