Electrical and Electronics Measurements and Instrumentation

Electrical and Electronics Measurements and Instrumentation

Prithwiraj Purkait

Preference :

This book can be used as a textbook for the course in electrical and electronics
measurements and instrumentation. It presents a comprehensive treatment of the subject of
electrical and electronics measurements and instrumentation as taught to the
undergraduate students of B.Tech/BE in Electrical Engineering, Electrical and Electronics
Engineering, Instrumentation Engineering, and allied branches. The book thus aims at
maintaining balance between these diverse fields of engineering disciplines by drawing
examples from various applications. The prerequisite on the part of the reader is that he or
she should have had introductory courses on linear algebra, basic calculus, vector/phasor
analysis, transform theory, circuit analysis and elementary mechanics. For the students’
interest, appendices on number systems and unit conversions are added at the end.

While conceptualising the text, the authors felt that the scope and method of treatment
could, with advantage, be augmented to suit the requirements of various branches of
engineering. Owing to the rapid advancements taking place in modern electrical and allied
industries, and their interconnection with power systems, the subject of electrical and
electronics measurements is gaining an ever-increasing importance.
As a subject of study, electrical measurement is one of the more traditional fields of
electrical and allied engineering disciplines. However, with progress in technology and
manufacturing expertise, measurements of physical parameters have gained new heights in
terms of state-of-the-art concepts and technologies. This book aims at bridging traditional
concepts with modern technologies of electrical and electronics measurements and
instrumentation.

Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning Analysis and Design

Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning Analysis and Design

Faye C. McQuiston, Jerald D. Parker, Jeffrey D. Spitler

Preference :

The text is intended for undergraduate and graduate engineering students who
have completed basic courses in thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and
dynamics. It contains sufficient material for two-semester courses with latitude in
course make-up. Although primarily directed toward classroom teaching, it should
also be useful for continuing education and as a reference.
Two physical changes have been made for this edition. First, the charts that were
previously contained in a pocket inside the back cover are now fold-out perforated
pages in Appendix E. Second, the computer programs and examples previously furnished
on a CD-ROM with the text are now available on the Wiley website
(www.wiley.com/college/mcquiston) by using the registration code included with new
copies of this text. If you purchased a copy of the text that does not contain a registration
code, or if you wish to acquire the software independently of the text, you may
purchase access directly from the website.
The load calculation computer program available on the website has been
enhanced and a number of examples have been placed there to broaden coverage in a
number of chapters.
The cooling load calculation procedures of Chapter 8 have been reorganized to
facilitate different approaches to covering the material. At least three approaches
might be used: first, the heat balance method may be covered only as brief background
material, with emphasis then placed on how to use the HVAC Load Explorer program;
second, the heat balance method may be taught rigorously, although this might be
more feasible for a graduate class; third, the radiant time series method (RTSM) may
be taught independently of the heat balance method. In the last case, a spreadsheet is
now provided at the web site that implements the RTSM and should speed utilization
of the method.
Many other revisions have been made to clarify examples and discussion. Various
material has been updated from the latest ASHRAE Handbooks where needed.
It appears that a complete conversion from English (IP) to the international (SI)
system of units will not soon, if ever, occur in the United States. However, engineers
should be comfortable with both systems of units when they enter practice. Therefore,
this text continues to use them both, with emphasis placed on the English system.
Instructors may blend the two systems as they choose.

Newnes Electrical Engineer’s Handbook

Newnes Electrical Engineer’s Handbook

D.F. Warne

Preference :

There seems to be a trend in the public perception of engineering and technology that to be able to operate a piece of equipment or a system is to understand how it works. Nothing could be further from the truth. The gap between the ability to operate and a genuine understanding is, if anything, widening because much of the complexity added to modem electrical equipment has the specific aim of making it operable or ‘user-friendly’ without special training or knowledge.
The need for a basic explanation of principles, leading to a simple description of how various important and common classes of electrical equipment works, has never been stronger. Perhaps more so than in its predecessor, Newnes Electrical Pucker Book, an attempt is made to address fundamentals in this book, and the reader is encouraged to follow through any areas of interest using the references at the end of each chapter. More comprehensive coverage of all the subjects covered in this pocketbook is available in the Newnes Electrical Engineer’s Reference Book.
More so now than ever before, the specification and performance of electrical equipment is governed by national and international standards. While it would be inappropriate in a pocket book to cover standards in any detail, a summary of key standards is included for reference purposes at the end of each chapter.

The structure of the book is based around three groups of chapters, which address:

  • fundamentals and general material
  • the design and operation of the main classes of electrical equipment
  • special technologies which apply to a range of equipment

The first group comprises three chapters which set out fundamentals and principles running through all aspects of electrical technology. The opening chapter deals with fundamentals of electric and magnetic fields and circuits, with energy and power conversion principles.

Power System Transients Theory and Applications

Power System Transients Theory and Applications

Naoto Nagaoka, Akihiro AmetAni

Preference :

When lightning strikes a building or a transmission tower, an electric current flows into its structures, which are made of electrically conductive materials such as steel and copper. The electric current produces a high voltage called “overvoltage” (or abnormal voltage), which can damage or break electrical equipment installed in the building or in the power transmission system.
The breakdown may shut down the electrical room of the building, resulting in a blackout of the whole building. If the breakdown occurs in a substation in a high-voltage power transmission system, a city where electricity is supplied by the substation can experience a blackout. An overvoltage can also be generated by switching operations of a circuit breaker or a load switch,
which is electrically the same as a breaker in a house. A phenomenon during the time period in which an overvoltage occurs due to lightning or switching operation is called transient, while electricity
being supplied under normal circumstances is called steady state. In general, a transient dies out and reaches a steady state within approximately 10 μs (10−6 s) in the lightning transient case and within approximately 10 ms (10−3 s) in the switching transient case. Occasionally, a transient sustains for
a few seconds if it involves resonant oscillation of circuit parameters (mostly inductance and capacitance) or mechanical oscillation of the steel shaft of a generator (called subsynchronous resonance).
In order to design the electrical strength of electrical equipment and to ensure human safety during a transient, it is crucial to perform a transient analysis, especially in the field of electric power engineering.

Manual of engineering drawing, Second edition

Manual of engineering drawing, Second edition

Colin H. Simmons, Dennis E. Maguire

Preference :

The general trend in Engineering Design had been that the designer who was responsible for the conception and design of a particular product generally specified other aspects of the manufacturing process. Gradually however, developments from increased computing power in all aspects of production have resulted in progressive advances in manufacturing techniques, metrology, and quality assurance. The impact of these additional requirements on the Total Design Cycle resulted in the withdrawal of BS 308 in 2000. Its replacement BS 8888 is a far more
comprehensive Standard. It is important to stress that British and ISO drawing standards are not produced for any particular draughting method. No matter how a drawing is produced, either
on an inexpensive drawing board or the latest CAD equipment, the drawing must conform to the same standards and be incapable of misinterpretation.

The text which follows covers the basic aspects of engineering drawing practice required by college and university students, and also professional drawing office personnel. Applications show how regularly used standards should be applied and interpreted. Geometrical constructions are a necessary part of engineering design and analysis and examples of twoand three-dimensional geometry are provided. Practice is invaluable, not only as a means of understanding principles, but in developing the ability to visualize shape and form in three dimensions with a high degree of fluency. It is sometimes forgotten that not only does a draughtsman produce original drawings but is also
required to read and absorb the content of drawings he receives without ambiguity.

The section on engineering diagrams is included to stimulate and broaden technological interest, further study, and be of value to students engaged on project work. Readers are invited to redraw a selection of the examples given for experience, also to appreciate the
necessity for the insertion and meaning of every line. Extra examples with solutions are available in
Engineering Drawing From First Principles using AutoCAD, also published by Butterworth-Heinemann. It is a pleasure to find an increasing number of young ladies joining the staff in drawing offices where they can make an effective and balanced contribution to design decisions. Please accept our apologies for continuing to use the term ‘draughtsmen’, which is the generally understood collective noun for drawing office personnel, but implies equality in status. In conclusion, may we wish all readers every success in their studies and careers. We hope they will obtain much satisfaction from employment in the absorbing activities related to creative design and considerable
pleasure from the construction and presentation of accurately defined engineering drawings.

Mechanical Engineering Principles, Second Edition

Mechanical Engineering Principles, Second Edition

John Bird, Carl Ross

Preference :

Mechanical Engineering Principles 2nd Edition aims to broaden the reader’s knowledge of the basic principles that are fundamental to mechanical engineering design
and the operation of mechanical systems. Modern engineering systems and products still rely
upon static and dynamic principles to make them work. Even systems that appear to be entirely electronic have a physical presence governed by the principles of statics. In this second edition of Mechanical Engineering Principles, a chapter has been added on revisionary mathematics; it is not possible to progress in engineering studies without a reasonable knowledge of mathematics,
a fact that soon becomes obvious to both students and teachers alike. It is therefore hoped that this chapter on basic mathematics revision will be helpful and make the engineering studies more comprehensible. Minor modifications and some further worked problems have also been added throughout the text. Free Internet downloads of full solutions to the further
problems and a PowerPoint presentation of all the illustrations contained in the text is available
For clarity, the text is divided into four parts, these being:

  • Part 1 Revision of Mathematics
  • Part 2 Statics and strength of materials
  • Part 3  Dynamics
  • Part 4 Heat transfer and fluid mechanics

Mechanical Engineering Principles 2nd Edition is suitable for the following:
(i) National Certificate/Diploma courses in Mechanical Engineering
(ii) Undergraduate courses in Mechanical, Civil, Structural, Aeronautical & Marine
Engineering, together with Naval Architecture
(iii) Any introductory/access/foundation course involving Mechanical Engineering Principles
at University, and Colleges of Further and Higher education.
Although pre-requisites for the modules covered in this book include Foundation Certificate/ diploma, or similar, in Mathematics and Science, each topic considered in the text is presented in a way that assumes that the reader has little previous knowledge of that topic.
