There are lots of great material on Electric Drives subject in the internet, buts its always a challenge to figure out a ready list of top books on Electric Drives that one can refer to immediately. Even though online materials are good, but nothing can beat the depth of coverage that a book can offer. Hence, we researched the list of Electric Drives books which are used by students worldwide and came up with top 10 Book Recommendations on Electric Drives subject. These books can be used as a great starting point for anyone studying Electric Drives and can also be used as a ready reference for Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate programs.
Most of these Electric Drives books are also in the best-seller lists in Amazon website. We have added a brief description of these best books and have also included direct links to Amazon site (as affiliate). This allows anyone to directly visit the site and order printed copies of these best books.
Here is the full list of best reference books on Electric Drives.
|1. “Control of Electrical Drives” by W.Leonhard
Book Review: This book presents various technologies that demonstrate how electrical drives play an important role in transportation, material handling and production processes. The book also demonstrates the ease of controlling electrical drives taking into consideration the flexibility and precision caused by the technology standards in the industry. The book also illustrates structures and consistent dynamic characteristics. The book very nicely demonstrates the culmination of microelectronics and microprocessors.
|2. “Vector Control of AC Machines” by P.Vas
Book Review: The book provides a description of the operation and simulation of a.c and d.c machines and a huge number of variable speed drives and also provides a presentation of steady state operation and transient operation. The book also provides detailed mathematical analysis including space vector theory, matrix theory, generalized machine theory, large and small signal equations, magnetic saturation effects and many others. This book is very useful for students, teachers and researchers in the industry as well as universities who deal with the operation and theories of electrical machines and drives.
|3. “Analysis of Thyristor Power Conditioned Motors” by S.K. Pillai
Book Review: This book provides a detailed analysis of thyristor power conditioned motors. The book very systematically provides the basic methods of both analysis of D.C and A.C motors that are fed from elementary configurations of commonly used power converters. The book also contains numerous methods that determine both steady state performance and transient performance. This book is very useful for students, teachers and researchers in the industry as well as universities who deal with the analysis of thyristor power conditioned motors.
