Induction Machines Handbook: Steady State Modeling and Performance offers a thorough treatment of steady-state induction machines (IM), the most used electric motor (generator) in rather constant or variable speed drives, forever lower energy consumption and higher productivity in basically all industries, from home appliances, through robotics to e-transport and wind energy conversion.

Chapter 1 offers a detailed introduction from fundamental principles to topological classifications and most important applications and power ranges from tens of W to tens of MW.

Then individual Chapters 2 and 4 deal in detail with specific issues, such as

  • Magnetic, electric, and insulation materials
  • Electric windings and their mmf
  • Magnetization curve and inductance
  • Leakage inductances and resistances
  • Steady-state equivalent circuit and performance
  • Starting and speed control methods
  • Skin and on-load saturation effects
  • Field harmonics, parasitic torques, radial forces, noise
  • Losses
  • Thermal modeling
  • Single-phase induction machine basics
  • Single-phase induction motors: steady-state modeling and performance

Fully revised and updated to reflect the last decade’s progress in the field, this third edition adds new sections, such as

  • Multiphase and multilayer tooth-wound coil windings
  • The brushless doubly fed induction machine (BDFIM)
  • Equivalent circuits for BDFIM
  • Control principles for doubly fed IM
  • Magnetic saturation effects on current and torque versus slip curves
  • Rotor leakage reactance saturation
  • Closed-slot IM saturation
  • The origin of electromagnetic vibration by practical experience
  • PM-assisted split-phase cage-rotor IM’s steady state

The promise of renewable (hydro and wind) energy via cage-rotor and doubly fed variable speed generators e-transport propulsion and i-home appliances makes this third edition a state-of-the-art tool, conceived with numerous case studies and timely for both academia and industry.
