Название: Electricity: Principle & Application, 9th Edition Автор: Richard J. Fowler, Mitchel E. Schultz Издательство: McGraw Hill Год: 2023 Страниц: 641 Язык: английский Формат: pdf (true) Размер: 106.1 MB
Electricity: Principles and Applications, 9e, requires that students have no prior knowledge of electrical theory and principles and allows students with limited math and reading skills to gain a clear understanding of electricity and electrical devices. Mastering this material in this text will also provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to pursue further education in electricity and electronics.
Any mathematics beyond simple arithmetic is carefully explained and illustrated with examples before it is used to solve more advanced circuit problems. Although simultaneous equations, matrixes, and determinants are introduced in Chap. 6, they are defined and explained in some detail before actually being used. Similarly, the elements of trigonometry used with ac circuits are fully explained and illustrated with examples before being applied to AC circuit problems.
Chapters 1 through 6 of this text are devoted, in general, to the fundamentals of direct current, and Chaps. 8 through 13 focus on subjects usually associated with alternating current. Chapter 14 provides comprehensive coverage of electric motors, including motor classifications, motor ratings, and motor types. Chapter 15 covers the most common test instruments, such as analog and digital multimeters. This chapter also includes the topic of voltmeter loading. Chapter 16 introduces students to the concepts and practices involved with residential house wiring. This arrangement provides students with balanced coverage of basic concepts. The transition from direct current to alternating current through the study of magnetism and electromagnetism is distinct enough to allow use of the material in a traditional DC/AC sequence. However, all the material is structured to provide a unified introduction to the broad subject area called electricity.
