Overview

Packed with photos and illustrations, DELMAR'S STANDARD TEXTBOOK OF ELECTRICITY combines comprehensive coverage of basic electrical theory with practical "how to" information that prepares readers for real-world practice. Known for its broad range of coverage, this resource covers all aspects of basic theory new learners need to know -- making it an excellent reference beyond the course. Its clear presentation uses schematics and large illustrations to bring concepts to life, while examples demonstrate how to do common tasks electricians perform. The sixth edition reflects the 2014 NEC and covers AC servo and torque motors, motor nameplate data, RL time constants, and AC waveforms. Also available: the MindTap® online learning resource.

His additional publications include ELECTRIC MOTOR CONTROL, ELECTRICITY AND CONTROLS FOR HVAC/R, INDUSTRIAL MOTOR CONTROLS, UNDERSTANDING MOTOR CONTROLS, ELECTRONICS FOR ELECTRICIANS, ELECTRICAL WIRING INDUSTRIAL, ALTERNATING CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, DIRECT CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, ELECTRICAL STUDIES FOR TRADES, ELECTRICAL PRINCIPLES, ELECTRICAL TRANSFORMERS AND ROTATING MACHINES, EXPERIMENTS IN ELECTRICITY FOR USE WITH LAB VOLT EQUIPMENT, THE COMPLETE LABORATORY MANUAL FOR ELECTRICITY, and PRACTICAL PROBLEMS IN MATHEMATICS FOR ELECTRICIANS.

MindTap® is the digital learning solution that powers students from memorization to mastery. It gives you complete control of your course—to provide engaging content, to challenge every individual, and to build their confidence. Empower students to accelerate their progress with MindTap.

  • Math concepts are limited to basic algebra and trigonometry and are logically organized so that students can master the basics before moving on to more advanced topics.
  • The text includes extended coverage of how to determine resistance of conductors at different temperatures.
  • "Why You Need to Know" boxed articles at the beginning of each unit highlight the real-world importance of critical topics presented in the text.
  • Highlighted safety/caution material stresses safe work practices and draws attention to critical points deserving emphasis.
  • An interactive online course mode called Mindtap that includes the entire text, multi-media assets, quizzes, flashcards, customization, social media options and progress reporting will be available to help you maximize your students success.
  • Current, comprehensive and extremely user friendly, DELMAR'S STANDARD TEXTBOOK OF ELECTRICITY, 6E is organized so that each chapter covers a different topic, making it easy to comprehend as well as teach.
  • The text covers a vast spectrum of electrical topics, including three-phase power, both single-phase and three-phase transformers, and single-phase and three-phase motors.
  • Bringing electrical theory and applications to life, the text's extensive collection of high-quality color illustrations and photographs appeals to visual learners and helps ensure student understanding.
  • Integrated throughout the text, practical "Green Tips" demonstrate how to apply green concepts to the electrical field.
