Fundamental Electrical and Electronic Principles covers the essential principles that form the foundations for electrical and electronic engineering courses, and provides the underpinning knowledge needed by a wide range of technician engineers. The text uses analogies to help students build their understanding of key topics, and encourages a methodical and logical approach to problem solving and written work. No prior knowledge of the subject is assumed. Clear explanations are supported throughout with worked examples and assignments (answers provided). New sections of Supplementary Worked Examples have been added in response to feedback from colleges. This book is an ideal text for a wide range of Further Education courses including City & Guilds certificates and NVQs (levels 2 and 3). The second edition has been matched to the latest specifications for BTEC National (2001/2 draft specifications), and Advanced VCE (GNVQ) Engineering (Curriculum 2000) and includes two brand new chapters on Semiconductor Theory and Devices and Semiconductor Circuits. It is also suitable for Intermediate GNVQ. First edition published by Arnold as Electrical and Electronic Principles, volume 1.
Supports learning and delivery in: - UEE30811 Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician - UEE22011 Certificate II in Electrotechnology (Career Start) Phillips, Electrical Principles uses a student-friendly writing style, a range of fully worked examples and full-colour illustrations to make the basic principles easier to understand. Covering the core knowledge components of the current UEE11 Electrotechnology Training Package and referencing the new AS/NZS 3000:2018 Wiring Rules, this textbook is structured, written and illustrated to present the information in a way that is accessible to students. With a new focus on sustainable energy, brushless DC motors and the inclusion of student ancillaries, as well as structuring more closely to the knowledge and skills requirements for each competency unit covered, Electrical Principles, 4e is the ideal text for students enrolled in Certificate II and III Electrotechnology qualifications. With more than 800 diagrams, hundreds of worked examples, practice questions and self-check questions, this edition is the most up-to-date text in the market. The writing style is aimed at Certificate III students while retaining the terminology typically used in the Electrical Trades. Additionally, the technical content does not break into a level above that of Certificate III. At all times the book uses illustrations integrated with the text to explain a topic.
The aim of this book is to introduce students to the basic electrical and electronic principles needed by technicians in fields such as electrical engineering, electronics and telecommunications. The emphasis is on the practical aspects of the subject, and the author has followed his usual successful formula, incorporating many worked examples and problems (answers supplied) into the learning process. Electrical Principles and Technology for Engineering is John Bird's core text for Further Education courses at BTEC levels N11 and N111 and Advanced GNVQ. It is also designed to provide a comprehensive introduction for students on a variety of City & Guilds courses, and any students or technicians requiring a sound grounding in Electrical Principles and Electrical Power Technology.
Electrical Principles 3 Checkbook aims to introduce students to the basic electrical principles needed by technicians in electrical engineering, electronics, and telecommunications. The book first tackles circuit theorems, single-phase series A.C. circuits, and single-phase parallel A.C. circuits. Discussions focus on worked problems on parallel A.C. circuits, worked problems on series A.C. circuits, main points concerned with D.C. circuit analysis, worked problems on circuit theorems, and further problems on circuit theorems. The manuscript then examines three-phase systems and D.C. transients, including worked problems on D.C. transients, main points concerned with three-phase systems, and worked problems on three-phase systems. The text ponders on single-phase transformers, D.C. machines, and introduction to three-phase induction motors. Topics include worked problems on an introduction to three-phase induction motors; main points concerned with D.C. machines; worked problems on D.C. machines; and main points concerned with an introduction to three-phase induction motors. The publication then elaborates on the main points and worked problems concerned with measuring instruments and measurements. The book is a dependable source of data for students wanting to dig deeper into electrical principles.

This sixth edition of the classic textbook Electrical Principles for the Electrical Trades has been thoroughly revised. It contains many new and updated areas that reflect current technology and practices. Volume 1 of the new edition features new and updated content on electrical principles. The text is a suitable resource for teachers and tradespeople as well as an excellent choice for classes of apprentice and non-apprentice trainees.
This much-loved textbook introduces electrical and electronic principles and technology to students who are new to the subject. Real-world situations and engineering examples put the theory into context. The inclusion of worked problems with solutions really help aid your understanding and further problems then allow you to test and confirm you have mastered each subject. In total the books contains 410 worked problems, 540 further problems, 340 multiple-choice questions, 455 short-answer questions, and 7 revision tests with answers online. This an ideal text for vocational courses enabling a sound understanding of the knowledge required by technicians in fields such as electrical engineering, electronics and telecommunications. It will also be an excellent refresher for foundation and undergraduate degree students. It is supported by a companion website that contains solutions to the 540 questions in the practice exercises, formulae to help students answer the questions, multiple choice questions linked to each of the 23 chapters and information about the famous mathematicians and scientists mentioned in the book. Lecturers also have access to full solutions and the marking scheme for the 7 revision tests, lesson plans and illustrations from the book.
Fundamental Electrical and Electronic Principles covers the essential principles that form the foundations for electrical and electronic engineering courses. The coverage of this new edition has been carefully brought in line with the core unit 'Electrical and Electronic Principles' of the 2007 BTEC National Engineering specification from Edexcel. As the book follows a logical topic progression rather than a particular syllabus, it is also suitable for other Level 3 students on vocational courses such as Vocational AS/A Level, City & Guilds courses and NVQs, as well as those taking foundation courses at pre-degree level including HNC/HND. Each chapter starts with learning outcomes tied to the syllabus. All theory is explained in detail and backed up with numerous worked examples. Students can test their understanding with end of chapter assignment questions for which answers are provided. The book also includes suggested practical assignments and handy summaries of equations. In this new edition, the layout has been improved and colour has been added to make the book more accessible for students. The textbook is supported with a free companion website featuring supplementary worked examples and additional chapters.http://books.elsevier.com/companions/9780750687379 * Full coverage of unit 'Electrical and Electronic Principles' of the 2007 BTEC National Engineering specification * Easy-to-understand, colour text with lots of worked examples that reinforce the theory covered * Free companion website with additional worked examples and chapters
