5.0 out of 5 stars RichardNabuda@Email.MSN.com April 1 2001
Format:Paperback
Overall I found this to be an excellent book. I enjoyed every page, and in particular tracing out circuit operations of the various schematics. I thought the diversity of circuits was great.
Nowhere in the title did I see "Basics of" or Fundementals of". This is not a book for the novice. The reader must have a good understanding of AC and DC motors, and solid state theory, circiuts, and devices.
I found the concatenation of induction motors, and the Kramer speed control system very interesting. I have many old industrial control books, but none shows these systems.
There are several errors, and examples of such are: Page 44, Para 3 is completely wrong. The proper way to reverse direction of compound motors is to reverse A1 and A2. Page 57, para 2 relates to this proper method. Fig. 5-9 Q102 shows a JFET- should be a UJT. Fig. 5-13 Q1 same thing. Fig. 5-10 has negative 250 VDC lines to emitters of Q532-Q536 and Q552-Q556 missing. Eliminate lead from motor to bottom of C541. Fig. 6-11 motor will never reverse with this scheme. Turning dial in opposite direction FWD biasis Q2 turning on Q1 which energizes RY2. RY1 drops out turning system off. Motor never runs CCW.
I have a comprehensive technical library, and one of my books is by this author entitled "Design and Operation of Regulated Power Supplies". It's an old book, and it's full of solid state circuits. I am indebted to authors like Mr Gottlieb, for it's their writings that enabled me to learn solid state electronics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overview with little depth Sept. 28 1998
By "kucuk"
Format:Paperback
The book is good in giving a general (although a little dated) overview of motor types and control techniques. Unfortunately they are too special for a layman to understand and too general for a specialist to really do something with it. I have found the book a little disappointing, because it is assuming things without ever explaining them.
I had the impression, that the author had more interest in displaying the scope of his knowledge instead of helping someone else to get to the same level of understanding

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing May 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I was disappointed with this book. While full of detailed figures and schematics, the book is hodge-podge of information with very little logical flow. It jumps from 100,000 feet into the treetops with no explanation. The author peppers the book with his insights but without any context and background leaving the reader confused. As well, the book is dated given recent advancements in motor control technology.

2.0 out of 5 stars Electric Motors and Control Techniques Jan. 18 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The information in this book is best suited to a physicist with a background in motors. If you don't already have a solid understanding about motors, servos and motor control already, then don't buy this book! The author covers far too much information at a very high level, makes too many assumptions about the reader's knowledge, and does not explain anything in easy-to-understand terms.

1.0 out of 5 stars Electric motors Nov. 28 2011
By Michael Huffman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I took an electric motors and controls class and we used this book. It was useless, hard to follow, format was difficult to keep track of what was going on. Someone with a PhD might be able to klean something from it, but I could not. I bought "Electric Motors and Control Systems" by Frank D. Petruzella. I used this book in my class and was able to learn a ton more about motors and control systems. You can read my review on that book. Don't waste your money on this book.
