Overview

This text fills a need for a textbook that presents the basic topics and fundamental concepts underlying electric machines, power electronics, and electric drives for electrical engineering students at the undergraduate level. Most existing books on electric drives concentrate either on converters and waveform analysis (ignoring mechanical load dynamics), or on motor characteristics (giving short shrift to analysis of converters and controllers). This book provides a complete overview of the subject, at the right level for EE students. The book takes readers through the analysis and design of a complete electric drives system, including coverage of mechanical loads, motors, converters, sensing, and controllers. In addition to serving as a text, this book serves as a useful and practical reference for professional electric drives engineers.

Mohamed El-Sharkawi, University of Washington

Mohamed A. El-Sharkawi is a Fellow of IEEE. He joined the University of Washington in 1980, where he is currently a Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering. He also served as the Associate Chair and the Chairman of Graduate Studies and Research. He has authored textbooks on electric energy, electric drives, electric safety, and wind energy. He has also authored more than 250 technical papers and research books and holds 5 licensed patents. Professor El-Sharkawi’s extensive professional activities include serving as the Vice President for Technical Activities of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society and as founding chairman of several task forces, working groups, and subcommittees, including the IEEE-PES subcommittee of renewable energy machines and systems. He is also the founder or chairman of several international and regional conferences; organizer and chairman of numerous panels and special sessions; and organizer and instructor of several international tutorials on topics, such as power systems, electric drives, wind energy, renewable energy integration, electric safety, induction voltage hazards, load forecasting, vulnerability assessment, VAR management, and power systems operations. Professor El-Sharkawi was awarded several educational, service, and research awards, including the Outstanding Educator Award for IEEE Western region in 2014 and the International Fellow award from 2015 to 2017.
  • Broad, flexible presentation of topics supports either a stand-alone course in Electric Drives, or a broader survey of Energy Systems, at a level appropriate for undergraduates.
  • Presents methods required to achieve speed control, position control, braking and holding of a variety of electric drives systems.
  • Covers steady-state and dynamic analysis of electric drives systems.
  • Presents the effect of the mechanical load inherent characteristic with respect to speed changes.
  • Covers the topic of trajectory control, when starting and braking times must be controlled. This topic is especially important in high performance applications such as robotics and guided manipulations.
  • The author uses his industry experience to develop real world examples and problems.
  • Bound-in disk contains multimedia software that illustrates concepts of key drive systems, plus MATLAB® simulations that help students understand the process of designing electric drives.
  • M-files for select examples and problems are available at www.brookscole.com.
