About the Author

Stephen L. Herman--both an electrician and a teacher for more than 30 years--authored numerous popular textbooks on the subjects of electricity and mathematics. Now retired, Mr. Herman spent two decades as lead instructor for the Electrical Technology Curriculum at Lee College in Baytown, Texas, where he received an Excellence in Education Award from the Halliburton Education Foundation. He also taught at Randolph Community College in Asheboro, North Carolina, for nine years, and helped establish an electrical curriculum for Northeast Texas Community College in Mount Pleasant, Texas. Additional publications include DELMAR'S STANDARD TEXTBOOK OF ELECTRICITY, INDUSTRIAL MOTOR CONTROLS, UNDERSTANDING MOTOR CONTROLS, ELECTRIC MOTOR CONTROL, ELECTRONICS FOR ELECTRICIANS, ELECTRICAL WIRING INDUSTRIAL, ALTERNATING CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, DIRECT CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, ELECTRICAL STUDIES FOR TRADES, ELECTRICAL PRINCIPLES, ELECTRICAL TRANSFORMERS AND ROTATING MACHINES, EXPERIMENTS IN ELECTRICITY FOR USE WITH LAB VOLT, THE COMPLETE LABORATORY MANUAL FOR ELECTRICITY, and PRACTICAL PROBLEMS IN MATHEMATICS FOR ELECTRICIANS.

Walter Alerich, BVE, MA, has an extensive background in electrical installation and education. As a journeyman wireman, he has had many years of experience in the practical applications of electrical work. Mr. Alerich has also served as an instructor, supervisor and adminstrator of training programs, and is well-aware of the need for effective instruction in this field. A former department head of the Electrical-Mechanical Department of Los Angeles Trade and Technical College, Mr. Alerich has written extensively on the subject of electricity and motor controls. He presently serves as an international specialist/consultant in the field of electrical trades, developing curricula and designing training facilities.
