Preface to The Electrical Engineering Handbook

The purpose of The Electrical Engineering Handbook, 2nd Edition is to
provide in a single volume a ready reference for the practicing engineer in
industry, government, and academia.

The book in its comprehensive format is
divided into twelve sections which encompass the field of electrical

The goal is to provide the most up-to-date information in the
classical fields of circuits, signal processing, electronics, electromagnetic
fields, energy devices, systems, and electrical effects and devices.

covering the emerging fields of communications, digital devices, computer
engineering, systems, and biomedical engineering.

In addition, the final
section provides a complete compendium of information regarding physical,
chemical, and materials data, as well as widely inclusive information on

The fundamentals of
electrical engineering have evolved to include a wide range of knowledge,
substantial empirical data, and a broad range of practice.

The focus of the
handbook is on the key concepts, models, and equations that enable the
electrical engineer to analyze, design, and predict the behavior of complex
electrical devices, circuits, instruments, and systems.

While data and formulae
are summarized, the main focus is the provision of the underlying theories and
concepts and the appropriate application of these theories to the field of
electrical engineering.

Thus, the reader will find the key concepts defined,
described, and illustrated in order to serve the needs of the engineer over
many years.

With equal emphasis on electronics, circuits, power systems,
instruments, materials, effects and devices, systems, and control, the engineer
should encounter a wide range of concepts and considerable depth of exploration
of these concepts as they lead to application and design.

The level of
conceptual development of each topic is challenging, but tutorial and
relatively fundamental. Each article, of which there are more than 200, is
written to enlighten the expert, refresh the knowledge of the mature engineer,
and educate the novice.

The information is organized into twelve major
sections. The first eleven sections encompass 118 chapters and the last section
summarizes the applicable mathematics, symbols, and physical constants.

section contains one or more historical vignettes that serve to enliven and
illuminate the history of the subject of that section.

Furthermore, each section
is preceded by a photo of a device, circuit, or system that demonstrates an
application illustrative of the material in the section.

Each article includes
four important and useful categories: defining terms, related topics,
references, and further information.

Defining terms are key definitions and the
first occurrence of each term defined is indicated in boldface in the text.

definitions of these terms are summarized as a list at the end of each chapter
or article. Related Topics are cross-references to related articles.

related topics are provided at the end of each chapter or article. The
references provide a list of useful books and articles for follow-up reading.

Finally, further information provides some general and useful sources of additional
information on the topic.
