Stephen L. Herman, Lee College (retired)

Stephen L. Herman is a retired electrician and teacher with more than 30 years of experience to his credit. A seasoned author, his reader-friendly textbooks on electricity and mathematics are popular with students and instructors alike. For two decades Mr. Herman was lead instructor for the Electrical Technology Curriculum at Lee College in Baytown, Texas, where he received an Excellence in Education Award from the Halliburton Education Foundation. He also taught at Randolph Community College in Asheboro, N.C., for nine years and helped establish an electrical curriculum for Northeast Texas Community College in Mount Pleasant, Texas. His additional publications include ELECTRIC MOTOR CONTROL, ELECTRICITY AND CONTROLS FOR HVAC/R, INDUSTRIAL MOTOR CONTROLS, UNDERSTANDING MOTOR CONTROLS, ELECTRONICS FOR ELECTRICIANS, ALTERNATING CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, DIRECT CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, ELECTRICAL STUDIES FOR TRADES, ELECTRICAL PRINCIPLES, EXPERIMENTS IN ELECTRICITY FOR USE WITH LAB VOLT EQUIPMENT, THE COMPLETE LABORATORY MANUAL FOR ELECTRICITY, and PRACTICAL PROBLEMS IN MATHEMATICS FOR ELECTRICIANS.
  • An excellent resource for anyone in the electrical trades, ELECTRICAL TRANSFORMERS AND ROTATING MACHINES, 4e delivers quick access to comprehensive information on single- and three-phase transformers, DC generators, and motors.
  • The text offers the ideal combination of theory and practical applications, providing valuable insight for readers interested in employment within the industrial electrical field.
  • Nine experiments integrated throughout the book give readers hands-on experience putting chapter theory and concepts into practice.
  • Offering ultimate flexibility, text units are divided into specific sections that permit the subject to be taught in any order the instructor chooses.
  • The text was written with the assumption that the student has knowledge of Ohm's law and basic electrical theory - enabling you to focus specifically on transformers and rotating machines.
