Basic Electrical Engineering provides a comprehensive exposition of the principles of electrical engineering for both electrical as well as non-electrical undergraduates. Students pursuing diploma courses as well as those appearing for AIME examinations would also find this book extremely useful. Beginning with the fundamentals of electricity and electrical elements, the book gives an exhaustive presentation of network theory and analysis, electromagnetic theory and energy conversion, alternating quantities, alternating and direct current machines, basic analogue instruments and ends with a brief introduction to power systems. Practical applications relating concepts to everyday environment are included wherever relevant. Emphasizing on the fundamental concepts the book enhances understanding and develops problem-solving skills by providing a large number of worked examples and chapter end exercises.
