Product Description
Electrical engineering is a protean profession. Today the field embraces many disciplines that seem far removed from its roots in the telegraph, telephone, electric lamps, motors, and generators. To a remarkable extent, this chronicle of change and growth at a single institution is a capsule history of the discipline and profession of electrical engineering as it developed worldwide. Even when MIT was not leading the way, the department was usually quick to adapt to changing needs, goals, curricula, and research programs. What has remained constant throughout is the dynamic interaction of teaching and research, flexibility of administration, the interconnections with industrial progress and national priorities.The book's text and many photographs introduce readers to the renowned teachers and researchers who are still well known in engineering circles, among them: Vannevar Bush, Harold Hazen, Edward Bowles, Gordon Brown, Harold Edgerton, Ernst Guillemin, Arthur von Hippel, and Jay Forrester.The book covers the department's major areas of activity - electrical power systems, servomechanisms, circuit theory, communications theory, radar and microwaves (developed first at the famed Radiation Laboratory during World War II), insulation and dielectrics, electronics, acoustics, and computation. This rich history of accomplishments shows moreover that years before "Computer Science" was added to the department's name such pioneering results in computation and control as Vannevar Bush's Differential Analyzer, early cybernetic devices and numerically controlled servomechanisms, the Whirlwind computer, and the evolution of time-sharing computation had already been achieved.Karl Wildes has been associated with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science since the 1920s, and is now Professor Emeritus. Nilo Lindgren, an electrical engineering graduate of MIT and professional scientific and technical journalist for many years, is at present affiliated with the Electric Power Resèarch Institute in Palo Alto, California. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Textbook Ever!
This is the worst textbook ever published.The content is not addressed in a clear manner, the calcuations are poorly discussed, if at all, and not even accurate sometimes.The questions often cover differing chapters than their location and most disturbing is the lack of accuracy!!!The book wasn't even spell-checked, let alone read for consistancy and accuracy!It is thoughtless to use this as a textbook ... it's more of a guessing game than information.

1-0 out of 5 stars Mechanical and Electrical Systems in Buildings (3rd Edition)
This book is terrible. If you are a certified HVAC specialist, it is for you. However, if you are new to this then it is a total waste of money. Explanation is bad, example are nowhere relate to the section discussed. And worst of all, there is no answer keys. You will not have a clue if you are correct or not. Every chapter there are as least half of the review question are calculations, yet in each chapter there will be probably one page showing how calculation is done. Example one of the simplest thing:
COP = Cooling Effect / Power Input. If you look up the index, you cannot find the word "cooling effect", find out whichever chapter they discuss, or show you how to calculate the "cooling effect".
You are in luck if you do not have class that uses this book. You have bad luck if you have a "good" teacher that using this book. You are doom if you have a "bad" teacher who using this book, might as well drop it. Waste of time and money.

Very good book. Helps you understand the systems inside (and outside) of buildings in use everyday that most folks don't have a clue about. If you are interested in understanding how your building equipment functions this is a good book for you. Down to earth and well written. Recommend to property management personnel.

Product Description
A clear explanation of the technology for producing and delivering electricity

Electric Power Systems explains and illustrates how the electric grid works in a clear, straightforward style that makes highly technical material accessible. It begins with a thorough discussion of the underlying physical concepts of electricity, circuits, and complex power that serves as a foundation for more advanced material. Readers are then introduced to the main components of electric power systems, including generators, motors and other appliances, and transmission and distribution equipment such as power lines, transformers, and circuit breakers. The author explains how a whole power system is managed and coordinated, analyzed mathematically, and kept stable and reliable.

Recognizing the economic and environmental implications of electric energy production and public concern over disruptions of service, this book exposes the challenges of producing and delivering electricity to help inform public policy decisions. Its discussions of complex concepts such as reactive power balance, load flow, and stability analysis, for example, offer deep insight into the complexity of electric grid operation and demonstrate how and why physics constrains economics and politics.

Although this survival guide includes mathematical equations and formulas, it discusses their meaning in plain English and does not assume any prior familiarity with particular notations or technical jargon. Additional features include:
* A glossary of symbols, units, abbreviations, and acronyms
* Illustrations that help readers visualize processes and better understand complex concepts
* Detailed analysis of a case study, including a Web reference to the case, enabling readers to test the consequences of manipulating various parameters

With its clear discussion of how electric grids work, Electric Power Systems is appropriate for a broad readership of professionals, undergraduate and graduate students, government agency managers, environmental advocates, and consumers. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best explanation I have seen of this topic
As someone with a Physics degree trying to make it as an Electrical Engineer in a utility I have been handed a great many books. Most of these were useless. A typical one will include pages and pages of equations without ever stopping to explain what everything actually means. This book appears to be the exception. It really does start with basics and explain why every term is important.

I will give an example. Many books spend pages talking about the mathematics of reactive power. However they will neglect to say why it is important. The math is easy so most students probably just memorize an equation and decide they understand it. Or more likely look at the equation, remember they can look it up when they need it, and move on. This book does no such thing, the following quote from this book is the best explanation of what reactive power is and why it is important that I have seen yet:

"3.3.3 The Significance of Reactive Power
A low power factor is undesirable for utilities in terms of operating efficiency and
economics. Most customers, especially small customers, are only charged for the
real power they consume.15 At the same time, the presence of reactive power oscillating
through the lines and equipment is associated with additional current. While reactive
power as such is not consumed, it nonetheless causes the utility to incur costs,
both in the form of additional losses and in the form of greater capacity requirements.
Owing to its property of occupying lines and equipment while doing no useful work,
reactive power has been referred to jokingly as "the cholesterol of power lines.""

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding layman's interview of the electric power grid
I am an applied computer science researcher who has worked closely on research with leading power engineering researchers for the last decade now. Even though I have an undergraduate degree in math (plus one in computer science) and an undergraduate minor in electrical engineering, I have found that trying to get insight into the power grid's dynamics is hard.Textbooks for EE students (typically a junior or senior class) assume a lot of EE background I do not have.And I have looked at every other supposed layman's overview of the grid I could find in recent years, and not one is anywhere close to this (most are superficial).

This book gives outstanding intuition into how our electric power grid really operates.Such knowledge is becoming even more essential as many experienced utility operators retire, as the operational characteristics a utility's footprint or an entire grid become less familiar with new kinds of renewable energy (with different characteristics) are being added, and as the grid becomes inherently less stable over time as the growth of generation and demand continues to outstrip that of transmission lines (more miles X megawatts each year, a big stability problem).

I certainly have all my computer science students, both graduate and undergraduate, who are working on our research read it carefully, and I recommend it to colleagues all the time.Most anyone who passed a few college math courses and any physics class (not even an engineering one necessarily) should be able to understand most anything in the book.Even people who have not quite had the above should be able to get a lot out of the book.I highly recommend it to layman in all fields, for training system operators, cyber-security experts and other computer scientists I routinely work with, and even to pointy-headed Dilbert managers --- at least they can become buzzword-compliant on the right things --- though I would lever let Dilbert's CEO read it.

Indeed, I work closely with a power researcher who is a member of the US National Academy of Engineering, and he is very impressed with this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best conceptual text books
As an electrical engineer I was really impressed that how clear and fluent the most difficult concepts were mentioned with a language that all formidable formulas in power system become easily understandable. I recommend this book to all electric power engineers and students.

5-0 out of 5 stars Electric power mysteries explained
This book gives clear and concise explanations of electric power fundamentals in evocative language. While I might have occasional quibbles with terminology or heuristic approach (as did one of the earlier reviewers), the book succeeds at explaining electric power concepts in ways that are far more effective than other textbooks I've used.Many very technical books on this topic are unnecessarily complex, and this book is a bridge to that more technical literature, particularly for readers who are new to the field.

2-0 out of 5 stars Clearly explained in laymans' misconceptions!
Yes, this book is indeed easy to read.However, its use of false concepts makes it an untrustworthy source.The author claims to have a degree of some sort in physics and a Phd in something.Why then does she think that an emf is a force?Any freshman physics student should know it isn't.And that bit about wriggling electrons pushing each other down a conductor-oh, brother!That is the kind of garbage I would expect in a book from Delmar Publishing, not from Wiley or IEEE press!In the preface, she mentioned receiving a manual from workers in a control room.I suspect she studied that book and forgot her physics.I have a Masters in physics, I belong to the IEEE, and I work for a major electric utility.I've seen the kind of books they use-chock full of out of date concepts and fairy tales.Come on IEEE, how did you let this book slip out? ...

1-0 out of 5 stars For Gods sake, keep distance
For all undergrad freshmen students or anyone stepping into this ocean of electrical engineer, the first thing you should do is to keep distance from this useless book. This book will just create an aversion in you towards EE. You will not solve 90% of the problems by reading the chapter, because the chapters lack clarity.

You will be wasting money without learning anything.
Read other reviews and then decide yourself.

The best book for basic electrical engineering is the book by ALLAN HAMBLEY.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Book
This book is full of errors and the subject matter presentation is far from an introduction. I used this in an intro class and it was one of the most useless textbooks I have ever bought. If it is a required book, do yourself a favor and buy some additional reading material.

1-0 out of 5 stars Incomplete and full of errors
I found this book to be difficult to follow due to lack of examples and meandering subject matter.The author seems to have problems focusing directly on the topic at hand.What examples do exist have errors, which is enough to confuse any student.The difficulty of the end of chapter problems is a bit tough at points which is confounded by the lack of provided solutions. the book has 0 solutions with a promise that 20% of the problems are solved online.Instead, what is found on line are hand scribbled answers with no explination.This book is a work in progress at best.

1-0 out of 5 stars Yeah, maybe if I already had a degree...
This book is very tough for someone just starting Electrical Engineering to understand.The book reqires a lot of previous subject matter knowledge that can be very frustrating if you don't have it.The mathematical derivations of the equations are somewhat choppy and skip many steps.Also, the problems at the end of each chapter are extremely difficult compared to what was taught in each chapter. ...

Product Description
Generation, transmission, distribution. Of the "big three" components of the electricity infrastructure, distribution typically gets the least attention. Yet, its impact on reliability, quality of service, and society often make distribution the most critical element. Today, deregulation and the emergence of distributed power generation mean it is now more important than ever for utility engineers to have fast access to better information.The Electric Power Distribution Handbook provides that information on the electrical aspects of power distribution systems. It begins with an in-depth look at equipment, applications, and tasks such as choosing transformer connections and sizing and placing capacitors. The focus then shifts to reliability and power quality, reflecting the strong dependence of the reliability of service on distribution systems performance. The author then tackles lightning protection, grounding, and safety, and concludes with a chapter that will help utilities avoid the problems inherent in the introduction of distributed generation.This book is also a comprehensive source for the hard-to-find tables, graphs, methods, and statistics that distribution system engineers need. It includes tips and solutions for solving problems and improving performance, all aimed at delivering the best quality while keeping costs down. In short, the Electric Power Distribution Handbook gives readers the tools they need to understand the science and practices of distribution systems. ... Read more

Product Description
A reference at once so elemental and so comprehensive, The Electric Power Engineering Handbook not only describes the field’s body of knowledge, but defines it. Written by expert contributors under the leadership of one of the world’s most respected and accomplished authorities in power engineering, the second edition remains the undisputed guide to power generation, transmission, and distribution, as well as for modeling, analyzing, planning, designing, monitoring, and controlling power systems. This fully updated edition is now available as a set of five books, each focused on a particular area of expertise.

The handbook’s first edition spawned two bestselling specialist works, Electric Power Transformer Engineering and Electric Power Substations Engineering, each of which included new material not found in the handbook. For this edition, these highly popular progeny rejoin the handbook, supplying ten additional chapters. Along with updates to nearly every chapter, several rewritten articles, and new material added to existing sections, this edition features nine entirely new chapters on such areas as environmental effects of transmission systems, substation asset management, substation commissioning, distribution system characteristics and protection, real-time control of distributed generation, and flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) controllers.

Retaining its unique tutorial style, The Electric Power Engineering Handbook, Second Edition prevails as a monument to the decades of ingenuity and tireless efforts of power engineers around the world. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reference for Engineers and Technicians
I wasn't sure when I saw this set of books the first time, thinking this might just be another "handbook" out there. However, I decided to buy it after reviewing and comparing with other books, and let me tell you who still try to make the decision: this is THE handbook you want. The set comes in five books that covers pretty much all aspects of power engineering. Topics include transformer, substation, T&D, power system, power generation, etc. This handbook set is by no means textbook, however, it covers lots of engineering principles with well illustrated equations and explanations. It comes with plenty of pictures, and appropriate reference to industry standards such as IEEE and NEC. These are very up-to-date, and provide further explanation to the text. I think this handbook is a very useful tool that electrical engineers/technicians want to put to their library. I also highly recommend this book to fresh out of school students who begin their career in the electrical/power industry, as the topics covered can quickly get them up to speed in terms of knowing what's out there in the industry and why. Either you're in system study, operation & control, protection, equipment maintenance, or the related field, you'll be able find a relevant chapter in this handbook. In short, this handbook is very relevant and comprehensive, and well written by experienced professionals from both the industry and academia. I give it a 5-star.

Product Description
Various factors affect the performance of electrical contacts, including tribological, mechanical, electrical, and materials aspects. Although these behaviors have been studied for many years, they are not widely used or understood in practice. Combining approaches used across the globe, Electrical Contacts: Fundamentals, Applications, and Technology integrates advances in research and development in the tribological, material, and analytical aspects of electrical contacts with new data on electrical current transfer at the micro- and nanoscales.

Taking an application-oriented approach, the authors illustrate how material characteristics, tribological behavior, and loading impact the degradation of contacts, formation of intermetallics, and overall reliability and performance. Coverage is divided broadly into three sections, with the first focused on mechanics, tribology, materials, current and heat transfer, and basic reliability issues of electrical contacts. The next section explores applications, such as power connections, electronic connections, and sliding contacts, while the final section presents the diagnostic and monitoring techniques used to investigate and measure phenomena occurring at electrical contact interfaces. Numerous references to current literature reflect the fact that this book is the most comprehensive survey in the field.

Explore an impressive collection of data, theory, and practical applications in Electrical Contacts: Fundamentals, Applications, and Technology, a critical tool for anyone investigating or designing electrical equipment with improved performance and reliability in mind. ... Read more

This book has lots of practice problems to solve. But no answers to any of them. There are very few examples for the student to work through and the concepts are introduced very poorly. I found the reading confusing and tedious with little explanation. Instead, it jumps, almost imediately, into equations without explaining what the section is about. Many hours of my time was wasted that didn't need to be due to this book and it probably cost me two letter grades. I haven't decided whether I will sell this book or just take it to a field and shoot it.


1-0 out of 5 stars Find another book to reference
At first glance this text appears to be comprehensive and informative. But if you are an instructor looking at this text for a class, please take the time to read the first three chapters completely, and then do the problems at the end. The text is often too generalized, and the examples are not helpful. Too little time is spent developing the basic concepts, and the advanced concepts are presented matter of factly.The problems do not have solutions, and are difficult to solve, leaving you with more questions than comfort. Example problems were typically very easy to solve, and problems were more complex, and often misleading. The preface states no prior knowledge of electronics or electrical theory are required....I wonder who wrote the preface. I have extensive practice in simple circuit analysis, Thevenin, Norton, Superposition, and Source Transformation. This text confused issues rather than supported them.The subjects were written in such a modular framework, that the relationships between theories were missed.I found previous texts on circuits and other information to use as references.

This book is absolutely not recommended for self-instruction.Without answers, how can one know if you're doing the problems right?If there is a solution manual, it should come with the book.

The book would be completely deserving of a 5 star rating if there would have been answers to chapter questions in the back of the book.A few samples are worked out in the book, but the lack of a significant number ofproblems with solutions(or answers) leaves the reader unsure of progress. This book is definitely not recommended for self-instruction or for use asan introductory college text. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Text on Solar Energy
Dr. Gevorkian has done great work in writing on one of the most important technologies in the world today. The book is well organized, easy to read, and useful for those with engineering or non engineering backgrounds. I read it as a business student, with no engineering background, to increase my knowledge of renewable energy. I found even the technical sections relatively easy to understand. The book not only discusses solar technology, it also gives examples of solar applications, and lists leading solar companies. The end of the book gives a good overview of the other renewable technologies. This text is highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mark Gangi AIA
After reading the first of Dr. Gevorkian's works on sustainable energy systems I thought it would be interesting to see what could possibly be added to his latest.The second book is intense in its content.Packed with so much information it would be overwhelming to read cover to cover - rather it is like an encyclopedia on the subject and a very useful reference.For an architect or engineer wanting to learn how some of these systems might be integrated in a project they are working on, or for a layman to have a savants knowledge of these subjects, I give it a high recomendation. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars FE prep using this textbook
I find this textbook is not helpful in terms of completness for preparing for the Electrical Fundamental Engineering in the afternoon section.

Don't rely on this text if you want to pass the FE for the Electrical Engineering.

This review is after one month of writing it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good.
The book is pretty good but I found an error early on in the book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good review
This book is a good exam review of the FE/EIT. I used this book to get a review of what the test would look like. This book is designed for both parts of the general FE. So if you can get like 60% of the questions right. Your set at least for the first half of the test. After this book I managed to finish 15-20 minutes early after multiple reviews of the first half of the exam.I did not take the general second half. Make sure you study what's going to be on the test. The bio section is on the second half of the general exam, not the first half. Have a plan of attack, create a schedule and you should do well.It's lacking the electrical logic optimization (K maps).

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the best
This book features a lot of exercises, but unless you are extremely rusty or have little knowledge in general principles I wouldn't recommend this book. The exercises are incredibly basic, and the book is riddled with errors (I lost count after the second chapter). I'd recommend another book.

2-0 out of 5 stars It's ok
If you are looking for a book that will help you on the afternoon electrical specific portion of the FE (or EIT) don't get this book.it helps alot with the morning session and gives alot of good ideas on being prepared and ready for the exam in general, but not alot on the afternoon portion ...

5-0 out of 5 stars very helpful, and very good range of topics
Very helpful for Electrical Engineering PE exam.Besides covering major EE topics like circuit analysis, frequency respones, power systems, semiconductor circuits, and digital logic (among 12 chapters), this book also includes chapters on MATHEMATICS, UNITS, ECONOMICS, and MANAGEMENT.These sections were very helpful, and their inclusion in this book obviated the need for additional reference material for the PE exam.

5-0 out of 5 stars The one book you need.
This was one of six books that I took with me when I sat for the PE exam.It is the one book that I studied most to prepare for the exam.The subject material is comprehensive and the study questions closely match the style and content of questions that appear on the exam.

Editorial Review

Product Description
What makes some computers slow? What makes some digital systems operate reliably for years while others fail mysteriously every few hours? Why do some systems dissipate kilowatts while others operate off batteries? These questions of speed, reliability, and power are all determined by the system-level electrical design of a digital system. Digital Systems Engineering presents a comprehensive treatment of these topics. It combines a rigorous development of the fundamental principles in each area with down-to-earth examples of circuits and methods that work in practice. The book not only can serve as an undergraduate textbook, filling the gap between circuit design and logic design, but also can help practicing digital designers keep up with the speed and power of modern integrated circuits. The techniques described in this book, which were once used only in supercomputers, are now essential to the correct and efficient operation of any type of digital system. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars nice book!
a classic textbook about the fundamentals of digital system design. as it came out firstly 10 years ago, it should be updated with latest technology data and trend.

1-0 out of 5 stars so-so book
This book has lots of topics and infos. It's either good as an index or a lookup table for topics you already knew or just heard of. but it's horrible for learning something new. the authors often give a statement without explanation why. so this will waste your time looking up IEEE papers on that topic (which most are very readable in comparison to this book.) This book doesn't give you enough detail to do a design for that particular problem nor clearly explain the big picture so that you at least you can look up else.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good book to have
Very good book. Author are nice too. A nice reference book for under and graduate EE and CpE students.

3-0 out of 5 stars Your typical required textbook
Not terribly good explanations, not enough examples and no answer key in the back. Odds are you have to get this for class anyway.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just right
This book delivers about as much as you'd want to know on any aspect of VLSI design that you need to know. Many times I've scoured the web and read papers that are partially relevant to what I'm doing. Then I'll open Dally and Poulton and they summarize exactly what I need in a few short pages. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Machinery Fundamentals (chapman)
There's not much to say when a book is adequate.The material is, for the most part, clearly laid out and understandable.
I purchased this for a course, but we only got to cover a small portion of the book.Reading ahead, it's easy enough to understand the book without supplemental lecture (which is not always the case with some texts).

I'd probably rather purchased the hardback if i'd known i'd be keeping it for reference.

4-0 out of 5 stars happy I purchased it.
Ordered this book for a class and got it in enough time to stay on track.Was a little shocked to see that such a little book cost so much but if you need it you need it.So far I also like the book.One of the few I am excited about keeping after finishing the class.

3-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre for class, not bad for a reference
I actually taught a junior level class from this book. I didn't like it for teaching.It felt like I was doing Electric Machinery Details, not Fundamentals.Curiously, my copy of this book has been floating around work for awhile now, and gets used quite often...mostly because it does have lots of details. Between this book and the Shaum's outline for electric power systems, it seems to get almost everything done.

In short, if you could pick this book up for cheap (say below $40-$50), then I'd consider it.Otherwise I think you can collect a few other books out there out of the used sections and get the same job done.

Just as a matter of record, I think more than $100 for any book is just plain outrageous (and I won't pay it).So you can use that as a gauge for how much this book is worth to you.

2-0 out of 5 stars A disappointment
This book (4/ed) seems like a first draft that has since been expanded (copy&paste) and reorganized but never actually finalized. For instance, the order of presention of DC and AC machinery has been reversed since the 1st ed., but regrettably the AC material now placed first uses concepts introduced much later. The first two or three chapter are decent, but then the book falls apart, becoming more of a flawed summary of various machineries.

There are numerous errors throughout; while these on their own do not significantly degrade the quality, they do reflect that little effort has been made since the first edition. The text feels superfical; it leaves very few traces of either true commitment to teaching or of genuine interest in fundamental concepts from the author. (Had the author cut down on the amount of material covered, he'd be in a better position to improve his presentation of the fundamentals in future editions.)

Fitzgerald's classic Electric Machinery (6/ed) eloquently presents fundamental concepts and is better in all aspects, including the narrative.

The first edition of this title proved the most successful of the Portable Handbook series launched in 1999. Aimed at electrical engineers and technicians working in building power systems, the relentlessly practical Handbook succeeded as an in the field working tool. This new edition is necessitated by the new 2002 version of the National Electrical Code (NEC). This code changes render much of the existing material obsolete, so over half the chapters require heavy rewrites to stay current. ... Read more
