Electrical Studies for Trades is ideal for current and future service technicians in fields such as air conditioning and refrigeration, construction, and facilities management who require practical knowledge of electricity. This book begins with an overview of basic electricity concepts rather than introducing complex mathematical calculations. From this starting point, readers proceed directly to "must-know" information, including how to determine wire sizes and make a variety of common switch connections. Different types of electrical power panels are also examined in detail. Discussion of general wiring practices and circuit protectors, as well as an introduction to transformers and three-phase and single-phase motors, rounds out the comprehensive coverage.


  • provides completely up-to-date information on both motion and process control to ensure that the entire spectrum of industrial control is addressed
  • examples that mirror the types of situations technicians face in the field are used throughout to reinforce the practical, applied, approach to electricity fundamentals
  • measurement instruments commonly used in the field are identified and explained to assist readers in using them and interpreting results
  • stand-alone units allow readers to gain an overall understanding of electricity ?basics?, while focusing their attention on topics that relate to particular trades
