the Theory and Application of Electrical Concepts for a Successful
By Stephen L. Herman -
Mastering the theory and
application of electrical concepts is necessary for a successful
career in the electrical installation or industrial maintenance
fields, and this new fifth edition of DELMAR'S STANDARD TEXTBOOK OF
ELECTRICITY delivers! Designed to train aspiring electricians, this
text blends concepts relating to electrical theory and principles
with practical 'how to' information that prepares students for
situations commonly encountered on the job.
Topics span all the
major aspects of the electrical field including atomic structure and
basic electricity, direct and alternating current, basic circuit
theory, three-phase circuits, single phase, transformers,
generators, and motors. This revision retains all the hallmarks of
our market-leading prior editions and includes enhancements such as
updates to the 2011 NEC®, a CourseMate homework lab option, and a
new chapter on industry orientation as well as tips on energy
efficiency throughout the text.
- Green Tips appear throughout
text to demonstrate how to apply green concepts to the
- New chapter on "industry
- New information concerning the
American Wire Gauge measurement.
- Extended coverage of how to
determine resistance of conductors at different temperatures.
- New coverage of constant-current
transformers and fuel cells.
- New homework lab solution option
