Principles of Electric Machines and Power Electronics 3E
Combining traditional topics of electric machinery with the latest in modern control and power electronics, this new edition includes coverage of multi-machine systems, brushless motors and switched reluctance motors, as well as constant flux and constant current operation of induction motors. A new chapter on wind energy systems is included and additional material on new solid state devices such as Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors and MOS-Controlled Thrysistors.
- A chapter on wind energy systems is added for better understanding of the use of electric machines in their generating mode of operation.
- The concept of sensorless drives is presented.
- Neutral point clamped (NPC) inverters are gaining popularity for high-power and high-voltage applications. The concept of NPC inverters is presented in Chapter 10.
