As electrical engineering programs have become overloaded with various new courses, many
universities have started to offer only one course in electrical machinery. Therefore, the primary
purpose of writing this book is to provide a meaningful and easily readable textbook for a three
semester-hour introductory-level electrical machinery course. Clearly, the purpose of this book is
not an introduction to the design of electrical machinery but is intended for students in electrical and
other engineering disciplines who may want to teach themselves. It is assumed that the students have
already completed an electrical circuits analysis course and are familiar with electromagnetic fields.
This book has evolved from the content of courses that I have presented at California State
University, Sacramento; the University of Missouri at Columbia; the University of Oklahoma; Florida
International University; and Iowa State University. It has been written for junior-level undergradu
ate students as well as practicing engineers in the industry. The book is suitable for both electrical
and nonelectrical engineering students or practicing engineers who may want to teach themselves.
Basic material has been explained carefully and in detail with numerous examples. Special fea
tures of the book include ample numerical examples and problems designed to use the information
presented in each chapter. Each new term is clearly defined when it is first introduced in the text and
a special effort has been made to familiarize the reader with the vocabulary and symbols used by
the industry. Also, consistent with modern practice, the International System (SI) of units has been
used throughout the book.
It is important for every electrical engineering student, regardless of his or her particular spe
cialization area, to be familiar with the fundamental concepts involving three-phase circuits, power,
and power measurement in ac circuits. However, based on my experience and observation through
out my long teaching career, such topics are often reviewed either inadequately or too quickly
toward the end of a basic circuit analysis course, or not at all in some cases due to lack of time.
Therefore, as a remedy, a brief review of these topics is included in the first two chapters of this
book. Of course, instructors will decide for themselves whether or not to review them in detail,
depending on the need. Furthermore, it is a fact that most students who take a basic electrical machines course do not specialize in electrical power engineering. Certainly they will not be designing any electrical machines during their professional careers; even those students specializing in electrical power engineering will probably not need to do so. Therefore, based on such reasoning as well as the Power Engineering Society of the IEEE, a more general approach to electrical machines has been used throughout this book. In addition, new modern topics have been introduced in the additional five chapters to keep the reader up-to-date with new developments in the area of electrical machine applications and electric power systems, including renewable energy, wind energy and wind energy conversion systems, solar energy systems, energy storage systems, and the smart grid. Several new appendices have been included in this edition. Also included is an extensive glossary to define the terminologies used in electrical machines.
