Updated to account for developments in the research literature and adding a new chapter on control of electronic generators, this work describes modern (variable speed) electric drives in terms of topology, performance, design elements, digital simulation programs and test results, and practical issues in industrial drives. In addition to the new chapters mentioned above, Boldea (U. Politehnica, Romania) and Nasar (U. of Kentucky) present material on electrical motor types, power electronic converters for electric drives, DC brush motors, rectifier and DC chopper fed brush motor drives, closed-loop motion control in electric drives, induction motor drives, PM and reluctance (or hybrid) synchronous motors, vector (d-q) control and direct torque and flux control of PM and reluctance synchronous motors, switched reluctance motors and drives, and representative large power drives which use GTOs and thyristors. The CD-ROM contain an electronic version of the text, problem solutions, selected slides for instructors, and eight digital Matlab/Simuling simulation programs.
