The third edition of Induction Machines Handbook comprises two volumes, Induction Machines Handbook: Steady State Modeling and Performance and Induction Machines Handbook: Transients, Control Principles, Design and Testing. The promise of renewable (hydro and wind) energy via cage-rotor and doubly fed variable speed generators e-transport propulsion, i-home appliances makes this third edition state of the art tool, conceived with numerous case studies, timely for both Academia and Industry.
The first volume offers a thorough treatment of steady state modeling and performance of induction machines, the most used electric motors (generators) in rather constant or variable speed drives for even lower energy consumption and higher productivity in basically all industries, from home appliances, through robotics to e-transport and wind energy conversion.
The second volume presents a practical up to date treatment of intricate issues with induction machine (IM) required for design and testing both in rather constant and variable speed (with power electronics) drives. It contains ready to use in industrial design and testing knowledge with numerous case studies to facilitate thorough assimilation of new knowledge.
