The revision of this well-known one-semester machines text reflects today's technology by rearranging topical coverage. Following introductory chapters 1-3, AC material is presented first. However, because of the modular approach of the text, either AC or DC material may be covered depending upon course needs. MATLAB has been incorporated throughout the text, both in examples and problems. More design exercises are incorporated, per ABET recommendations. Solid-state power electronics (Chap. 3) has been modified, and solid-state motor controls (Chaps. 6, 9, & 10) will be covered in greater detail.
