5. “Basic Machines and How They Work” by United States Bureau of Naval Personnel

“Basic Machines and How They Work” Book Review: This book covers basic theory, from the lever and inclined plane to internal combustion engines and power trains. The fundamentals of hydrostatic and hydraulic machines are discussed in detail. It discusses the block and tackle, wheel and axle, the inclined plane and the wedge, the screw and different types of gears. A chapter on the concept of work discusses the measurement of work, friction and efficiency. This is followed by investigations of power, force and pressure, with explanations of the uses of scales, balances, gauges and barometers. The remaining chapters cover machine elements, basic mechanisms, the internal combustion engine and power trains. Important concepts, machine components and techniques are clearly illustrated in more than 200 diagrams for better understanding. It can be used to great advantage as a basic text in mechanical engineering in standard technical schools.

6. “Power Electronic Converters: DC-AC Conversion (Electric Energy Systems and Engineering Series)” by Guy Seguier and Francis Labrique

7. “Flexible AC Transmission Systems: Modelling and Control (Power Systems)” by Xiao-Ping Zhang and Christian Rehtanz

“Flexible AC Transmission Systems: Modelling and Control (Power Systems)” Book Review: This explains the Modelling and Control of power systems. The fundamental properties of electric energy are explained. Vertically integrated structure, consisting of power generation, transmission, distribution and trading are discussed. The role of the electric network and its operations are provided.

8. “AC Machine Systems: Mathematical Model and Parameters, Analysis, and System Performance” by Jingde Gao and Linzheng Zhang

“AC Machine Systems: Mathematical Model and Parameters, Analysis, and System Performance” Book Review: This book is designed for the researchers and postgraduates in the field of electric machines and control. This book explains both analysis methods and operating performances of AC machine systems. It includes a variable speed drive system of AC machines with power electronics and control devices. It discusses power energy systems composed of AC machines and power lines, special machine systems with special machines and special loads. It explains an electric machine system consisting of AC machines and excitation devices. Based on a single coil, the Multi-Loop Theory is thoroughly described. Examples of how to use the new approach are presented.

9. “High Performance AC Drives: Modelling Analysis and Control (Power Systems)” by Mukhtar Ahmad

“High Performance AC Drives: Modelling Analysis and Control (Power Systems)” Book Review: This book presents a comprehensive view of high performance ac drives. It may be considered as both a text book for graduate students and as an up-to-date monograph. It may also be used by R & D professionals involved in the impro- ment of performance of drives in the industries. The book will also be beneficial to the researchers pursuing work on sensorless and direct torque control of electric drives as up-to-date references in these topics are provided.
