About this book

Introduction

This book provides a thorough approach for mastering the behavior and operation of induction motors, an essential device in the modern industrial world. Its way of presentation renders this book suitable for selfteaching by students, engineers, and researchers in the field of electrical engineering. It covers the modern theory of induction motor applications and control methods. The transient analysis of both three-phase and single-phase induction motors as well as that of the double-cage motors are developed. The principles of such modern control methods as Fiel-Oriented Control, Direct Torque Control and Computed Charges Acceleration Method are clearly treated in this monograph. Numerous equations, simulations, and figures are presented.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

------------------------------------------------------------ "A nice and modern treatment of induction motors." T.A. Lipo, University of Wisconsin/Madison, USA "A well presented treatment of induction motors, their drives and power electronic control bringing together current thinking, simulation and practice with established models and performance." A. G. Jack, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK "A solid, clear and lucid text on the theory and analysis of induction machines that could be further extended into the field of high performance drives." W. Leonhard, TU Braunschweig, Germany "A well organized analytic book, directly usable in industrial practice." G. Lacroux, Ragonot Industry Electrical Drives, France

"The use of induction motors has increased because of the improvements in microprocessor-controlled inverter circuits. … This book details the operation and control of induction motors in both steady-state and transient conditions. … This book is appropriate for power or electrical engineers studying and working with induction motors. It provides a good comprehensive foundation for understanding the theory of operation and control aspects of modern induction motors, especially since many of the steps used to derive the formulas are worked out in detail." (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, 2004)

"This book provides a thorough approach for mastering the behavior and operation of induction motors, an essential device in the modern industrial world. Its way of presentation renders this book suitable for self teaching by students, engineers, and researchers in the field of electrical engineering." (ETDE Energy Database, February, 2002)
