Overview

Readers gain a thorough understanding of today's electronic variable speed drives with this practical guide. ELECTRONIC VARIABLE SPEED DRIVES, 4TH EDITION provides information essential to master DC and inverter drive technology. A logical structure introduces fundamental drive circuits before presenting more complex drive circuits. Students review the most current technology advances for drives as the authors emphasize theory, troubleshooting and maintenance. Students practice using the Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 70, while waveform schematics guide them through operating different types of drives and interpreting their circuitry. Students review digital regenerative DC drives and frequency inverters and mechanical and electrical installation.

  • CHAPTERS HIGHLIGHT DEVELOPING INDUSTRY TOPICS. Readers gain a thorough understanding of digital regenerative DC drives and frequency inverters as well as today's other emerging technologies. Additional manufacturer-specific information prepares readers to work with the latest advancements.
  • DEPTH OF COVERAGE IS IDEAL FOR BOTH NOVICE OR EXPEREINCED TECHNICIANS. This book skillfully advances from basic coverage that's ideal for the novice drive user and helpful as review for more advanced users to complex topics, such as set up and troubleshooting. The authors review basic electrical and motor theory and drive fundamentals before progressing to more involved control circuits and advanced materials.
  • CLEAR, CONCISE EXPLANATIONS FOCUS ON ESSENTIAL INFORMATION. Explanations and theory are presented in a clear, concise, no-nonsense manner with very little use of formulas.
  • THOROUGH COVERAGE OF TROUBLESHOOTING EQUIPS READERS FOR CHALLENGES ON THE JOB. The authors cover troubleshooting techniques in detail. The book devotes an entire chapter to DC drive troubleshooting and AC drive troubleshooting.
  • ACTUAL MANUFACTURER'S SCHEMATICS PREPARE READERS FOR SUCCESS IN THE REAL WORLD. Readers work with real manufacturer's schematics as they progress through the book. This enables readers to easily transition the skills they are learning to success on the job.
  • APPENDIX PROVIDES REFRESHER ON DC AND AC MOTOR THEORY. An optional refresher on DC and AC motor theory in the appendix provides thorough review for readers who need it. The appendix emphasizes solid-state devices as they relate to variable speed drive technology.
