Electric Motor Control - 7th edition

Electric Motor Control (ISBN10: 0766861643; ISBN13: 9780766861640)
ISBN13: 978-0766861640
ISBN10: 0766861643

Summary: This highly practical approach to a difficult topic makes Electric Motor Control an especially useful and effective tool for anyone who will install, monitor and/or maintain motor controls. The book begins by introducing the simplest of equipment and then builds upon this knowledge, step-by-step, enabling readers to learn how to draw and interpret motor control schematic diagrams. Subsequent units provide useful information on motor control components and how they ar
e connected to form complete control circuits. Thoroughly updated, this edition features an all-new unit on variable frequency drives, expanded coverage of programmable logic controllers (PLCs), plus the latest information on micro limit switches, brushless exciters for synchronous motors, and vacuum contactors. New information on the similarities and differences between NEMA and IEC control components is also included. One of the most reader-friendly, yet technically complete, introductions to modern motor theory and applications available anywhere, the book is particularly well suited for use in journeyman electrician training courses or self-study. To use it successfully, readers are assumed to have prior knowledge of basic electricity concepts.

Benefits:
  • topics are organized into short, stand-alone units with specific learning objectives, making it easy to read and learn from the book or use it as an on-the-job reference
  • numerous control schematics and wiring diagrams are included to help those new to the world of motor control in understanding and interpreting the function of a control circuit
  • practical problem-solving gets readers thinking about the process of drawing and reading control schematics, leading to an understanding of the basic concepts needed to troubleshoot control systems
  • many different types of control circuits are introduced and illustrated, providing readers with a complete understanding of how control components operate as well as their intended uses
  • a glossary and handy appendices provide further explanation of essential terms as well as servicing and troubleshooting procedures
