Very dated material!! Sept. 12 2008
By Little big man - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So I purchased this book to get the latest knowledge on motors, but instead I purchased a poorly written book by two teachers who have never done any of the work they are trying to outline in this text,I am an Industrial Electronics and motor control Maintenance Technician with 25 years experience,so I know what I am talking about, after reading this poorly written and presented collection of really bad ideas on how to troubleshoot motors I could write a much better book than this collection of trash! All of the ideas pictures and concepts presented in this text have been obsolete for about 30 years. My text books from college are about 15 years more advanced than this book and they were written in 1984. I noticed there are no line diagrams or much mention of programmable controls,or timers and relays, overload heaters for motor overcurrent protection instead of the fuses listed, you don't use fuses to protect a motor you use overload heaters an industry standard, these guys don't have a clue of how to troubleshoot a motor or check for amperage draw from a motor, you use a digital clampon ammeter not a hardwired inline ammeter, they don't explain how to ohm out a motor with a meter or use a megger to test insulation.It also looks like they got a really old square D catalog and used the pictures out of it for the book they are poorly reproduced, but if your are looking for info and circuits and trouble shooting techniques manufactures of components and motor staters and motors can give you much better and updated info from there website than you can derive from this peice of drivel!! I could not recommend this text to anyone who wants to learn about motors, if you think this is a good book then you know absolutely nothing about motors and controls or troubleshooting, american technical publishers produce some of the best motor and control books.Not audel.

Format: Paperback
This book is very poorly written with numerous technical errors. The illustrations are poorly done and the photographs are fuzzy and grainy.
I repair electric motors as a hobby, and could find nothing of value in this book. One would be much better off buying Rosenbergs "Electric Motor Repair" through a used book store or online.

Not complete but good enough.
Should be part of your technical library if you have the room on the shelf and money for the purchase.

Audel Electric Motors Sept. 30 2008

Format: Paperback
A big fat book with lots of info. However I am dissapointed that PWM pulse width modulation, is not even mentioned as a DC motor speed controller. One of the reasons I bought the book was to get info on this subject. It makes me wonder how much other new technology is left out or not addressed...
