About the Book

This is a single-volume book on 'electrical machines' that teaches the subject precisely and yet with amazing clarity. The extent has been kept in control so that the entire subject can be covered by students within the limited time of the semesters. Thus, they will not have to consult multiple books anymore. The discussions of concepts include the modern trends used in industry, like efficient transformers, efficient induction motors, DC drives, and the problems related to them. A special feature of this book is its presentation. Important statements have been set in bold type. Key equations have been given in separate boxes so that they can be spotted easily at the time of revising.
