Description:

INDUSTRIAL ELECTRICITY, 8E is the ideal book to help electrical students, as well as maintenance technicians, master the fundamentals of electrical theory as they pertain to the field of industrial electricity. This fully updated eighth edition contains advanced information on electrical theory and presents all material in a clear, updated, and logical manner. Coverage begins with electrical symbols and drawings, current voltage, resistance, and power. Subsequent chapters cover Ohm's Law, series, parallel, combination circuits, and resistive and reactive circuits. Advanced material, including rotating machinery, motor controls, transformers, electronic drives, and PLCs are also thoroughly discussed. In addition to the theory, the book also covers installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. This eighth edition contains over eight hundred and fifty updated illustrations and photos that will help students and maintenance technicians master the fundamentals.
