Electric Motors and Drives (4th ed.) by Austin Hughes (ebook)This fourth edition is again intended primarily for nonspecialist users or students of electric motors and drives. From the outset the aim has been to bridge the gap between specialist textbooks which are pitched at a level which is too academic for the average user and the more prosaic handbooks which are full of detailed information but provide little opportunity for the development of any real insight. We intend to continue what has been a successful formula by providing the reader with an understanding of how each motor and drive system works, in the belief that it is only by knowing what should happen and why that informed judgements and sound comparisons can be made. It identified several new topics needed to bring the work up to date, but these areas were not ones that the original author AH was equipped to address, having long since retired. Fortunately, one of the reviewers WD turned out to be a willing co-author: he is not only an industrialist and author with vast experience in the field, but, at least as importantly, shares the philosophy that guided the first three versions. We enjoy collaborating and hope and believe that our synergy will prove of benefit to our readers.

Electric Motors and Drives is intended for non-specialist users of electric motors and drives, filling the gap between maths- and theory-based academic textbooks and the more prosaic 'handbooks', which provide useful detail but little opportunity for the development of real insight and understanding. The book explores all of the widely-used modern types of motor and drive, including conventional and brushless D. The third edition includes additional diagrams and worked examples throughout. New topics include digital interfacing and control of drives, direct torque control of induction motors and current-fed operation in DC drives. The material on brushless servomotors has also been expanded. Austin Hughes' approach, using a minimum of maths, has established Electric Motors and Drives as a leading guide for electrical engineers and mechanical engineers, and the key to a complex subject for a wider readership, including technicians, managers and students.
