This book is designed for the electrical professional who needs to know motor control from the practical viewpoint. It is designed to introduce basic controls then build to the more complex controls for various motors and various applications. It is designed for a troubleshooter who needs to know not only modern controls but older controls that are still in use. The HOW and WHY controls are designed to perform the desired operations are important concepts to be understood. Along with motor controls of all types, motors are analyzed to provide the reader with the proper application for a particular need. Matching system needs with motor characteristics and capabilities is easier with foundational knowledge of motor theory. Use of the National Electrical Code is used to acquaint readers with how to install and maintain motor systems.
This handy reference is intended for practicing electrical design engineers and technicians engaged in daily practical work. It contains several electrical values necessary for the design of control systems. It also includes essential basic fundamentals and the circuitry commonly encountered while designing control circuits. The book has been compiled bearing in mind safety aspects and international practice, as recommended by national and international agencies. Salient Features: Importance has been given to the three-phase induction motor (squirrel cage); Tables, fundamental principles and useful information on materials have been included. Brief descriptions of various types of motors and commonly encountered faults are given. A series of typical circuit diagrams are included along with a brief description of their working. Design guidelines for control cabinets, panels, etc. are given.

Environmentally safe engineering is one of the hottest and most controversial topics in technical circles. Though many publications offer theory and intellectual discussion of the topic, this book provides practical, hands-on advice including hints and tips from the nation's top engineers. Green Electronics/Green Bottom Line offers practical advice for engineers and managers who want or need to incorporate environmental issues into the design process. The emerging discipline of Design for the Environment (DfE) combines engineering know-how with environmental awareness. Topics include international policy issues such as ISO 14000, materials selection (e.g., for recyclability), manufacturing concerns like no-flux processes, and design issues such as power consumption. Real-world cases show how these elements can be included in everyday designs. Each chapter opens with a topical cartoon and lively story, interview or editorial. The discussion will then move to specific engineering issues and their economic and social context. The last section explores larger possibilities and new directions still to be explored by engineers concerned with education, health, and environmental quality. Contributors include engineers from Motorola, Analog Devices, Dupont, Compaq, Nortel, AMD, and Apple Computer, and academics from universities in the US, Canada, the UK, and Europe, as well as the Rocky Mountain Institute. An everyday guide to environmentally sound electronics design Contributors include top engineers from the biggest electronics manufacturers and most prestigious universities Real-world cases illustrate topics giving concepts the reader can apply immediately
