    Retaining the student-friendly style of the First Edition, this unique text fills a gap in the available Electronics and Computer Technology texts by devoting more time to current industrial requirements. It presents AC machines and transformers before DC machines, motors before generators, gives more attention to machine characteristics, and makes extensive use of NEMA standards and tables. The “self-contained” nature of each chapter gives instructors significant freedom in course development.
