## Preface to Electrical Machines with MATLAB PDF

As electrical engineering programs have become overloaded with various new courses, many universities have started to offer only one course in electrical machinery.

Therefore, the primary purpose of writing this book is to provide a meaningful and easily readable textbook for a threesemester-hour introductory-level electrical machinery course.

Clearly, the purpose of this book is not an introduction to the design of electrical machinery but is intended for students in electrical and other engineering disciplines who may want to teach themselves.

It is assumed that the students have already completed an electrical circuits analysis course and are familiar with electromagnetic fields.

This book has evolved from the content of courses that I have presented at California State University, Sacramento; the University of Missouri at Columbia; the University of Oklahoma; Florida International University; and Iowa State University.

It has been written for junior-level undergraduate students as well as practicing engineers in the industry.

The book is suitable for both electrical and nonelectrical engineering students or practicing engineers who may want to teach themselves. Basic material has been explained carefully and in detail with numerous examples.

Special features of the book include ample numerical examples and problems designed to use the information presented in each chapter.

Each new term is clearly defined when it is first introduced in the text and a special effort has been made to familiarize the reader with the vocabulary and symbols used by the industry.

Also, consistent with modern practice, the International System (SI) of units has been used throughout the book.

It is important for every electrical engineering student, regardless of his or her particular specialization area, to be familiar with the fundamental concepts involving three-phase circuits, power, and power measurement in ac circuits.

However, based on my experience and observation throughout my long teaching career, such topics are often reviewed either inadequately or too quickly toward the end of a basic circuit analysis course, or not at all in some cases due to lack of time.

Therefore, as a remedy, a brief review of these topics is included in the first two chapters of this book. Of course, instructors will decide for themselves whether or not to review them in detail, depending on the need.

Furthermore, it is a fact that most students who take a basic electrical machines course do not specialize in electrical power engineering.

Certainly they will not be designing any electrical machines during their professional careers; even those students specializing in electrical power engineering will probably not need to do so.

Therefore, based on such reasoning as well as the Power Engineering Society of the IEEE, a more general approach to electrical machines has been used throughout this book.

In addition, new modern topics have been introduced in the additional five chapters to keep the reader up-to-date with new developments in the area of electrical machine applications and electric power systems, including renewable energy,

wind energy and wind energy conversion systems, solar energy systems, energy storage systems, and the smart grid. Several new appendices have been included in this edition. Also included is an extensive glossary to define the terminologies used in electrical machines.

It is expected that a typical student has a working knowledge of complex algebra, sinusoidal analysis, phasor diagrams, phasor analysis, and other basic concepts.

However, it is a good idea to review the first two chapters briefly to establish a common background before reading further chapters.

It is recommended that the minimum amount of material covered in a one-semester course should include the chapters on magnetic circuits, transformers, induction machines, synchronous machines,

And direct-current machines, depending on the purpose of the course. A complete solutions manual is also available for instructors from the publisher.
