Alternating Current Fundamentals (8th Edition)

File Size: 7.12 Mb

Description
The eighth edition of Alternating Current Fundamentals remains a leader in textbooks that provide the information needed for technicians in the electrical field. Alternating Current Fundamentals is a companion text to Direct Current Fundamentals and builds on that platform. An understanding of alternating current theory is an absolute must for anyone desiring employment in the electrical field in almost any part of the world. If industry runs, it runs on electricity!

Alternating Current Fundamentals Eighth Edition begins with an introduction to alternating current and compares it to direct current. AC voltage, frequency, waveforms, and the differences between peak, RMS, and average values are discussed. Series and parallel circuits containing resistance, inductance, and capacitance with mathematical solutions to problems are given. Practice problems at the end of applicable units aid students in understanding the concepts of RL, RC, and RLC circuits.

Alternating Current Fundamentals Eighth Edition contains information on singlephase and three-phase transformers. This coverage includes examples of how to calculate values of voltage, current, and turns for different types of transformers. Alternators, threephase motors, and single-phase motors are also covered.
