Overview

Electric motors, transformers, and control systems are used in all modern industries. Knowledge of the characteristics of these will help the electrical engineering technologist keep the wheels of industry turning.
This book will give the student a practical introduction to electrical machinery, transformers, and motor control.
The experiments have all been used at the Pennsylvania State University, Mckeesport Campus. There, the full series of experiments were done in two semesters. Each experiment requires about two hours of laboratory time.
The book is designed to accompany a textbook.
As an added feature, the book also has sections on conducting an experiment, laboratory report writing, accuracy, equipment, and motor runaway.

Interviews

From the Author

To the electrical engineering technology instructor, Would you like to ease your teaching load while keeping the quality of instruction high? Here is your opportunity to get a unique laboratory manual that can help you accomplish this. The manual is Experiments for Electrical Machines, Drives and Power Systems. The experiments cover the major concepts of electrical machinery and the control of electrical machinery. Each experiment includes an EQUIPMENT list. The manual is 8 1/2' x 11', has a soft cover, and is 126 pages long. All text is 10 characters per inch in the Courier font. It contains 76 schematics and line drawings. Easy to read and follow, it was written for the EET (electrical engineering technology) curriculum. This laboratory manual can be used with a variety of electrical machinery texts. I used it with Richardson and Caisse's text. Others have used it with Wildi's text. It goes well with the text by Rosenblatt and Friedman. I wrote the manual while on the faculty at the Mckeesport Campus of the Pennsylvania State University. Including older editions, it has been in continuous use at the Mckeesport Campus for 14 years. Teachers and students have found it easy to use.
