Synopsis

The Control Techniques Drives and Controls Handbook by Bill Drury

Variable speed drives and the associated electrical motors play a central role in industry as well as the buildings in which we live, work and are entertained. They are arguably the most potent tool we have in the quest to save energy and thereby reduce our carbon footprint. Their rate of development has been rapid and today's product is in many ways unrecognisable from its ancestors of even twenty years ago. Development continues apace for the components used in the products, the products themselves and the ways in which the products are used. This book contains a great deal of practical information for drives and industrial engineers who use motors and drives. It is a comprehensive guide to the technology underlying drives and motors. It contains sufficient theory to give both user and student an insight into the design of these components and thereby the constraints and opportunities that exist. It has been radically revised and expanded from the previous edition to contain much new information. The practical grounding of this book makes it a reference work that has a place on the shelf of students as well as practising engineers.

Reviews

'The handbook gives a state-of-the-art insight into the technology and techniques of AC and DC motor control, from basic theory through to practical solution... a comprehensive and highly practical work.'

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.
