Drive guide: Book introduces engineering concepts of motors and drives

Motors and Drives: A Practical Technology Guide introduces engineering concepts of motors and drives in a way that can be easily understood by engineers and technicians.

Motors and Drives: A Practical Technology Guide introduces engineering concepts of motors and drives in a way that can be easily understood by engineers unfamiliar with the technology, and to technicians who are technically literate but not accustomed to complex theory and mathematics.

Written by David Polka, the book de-mystifies drive and motor technology used in today's modern manufacturing processes. The publisher says that the text has roots in the practical side of drive and motor use, with the "design engineering" side of technology presented in commonly used terms.
It starts with the basics, and moves into the more complex concepts of drive operation and design.
The book also compares the two technologies, ac and dc, and provides questions and issues to review when making any drive technology decision.
