Product Description

From the Inside Flap

As in the first edition, my guiding philosophy in writing this book has three elements. The first element is my belief that in the long run students are best served by learning basic concepts in a general setting. Second, I believe that students need to be motivated by seeing how the principles apply to specific and interesting problems in their own fields. The third element of my philosophy is to take every opportunity to make learning free of frustration for the student.

This book covers circuit analysis, digital systems, electronics, and electromechanics at a level appropriate for either electrical-engineering students in an introductory course or nonmajors in a survey course. The only essential prerequisites are basic physics and single-variable calculus. Teaching a course using this book offers opportunities to develop theoretical and experimental skills and experiences in the following areas:

  • Basic circuit analysis and measurement
  • First- and second-order transients
  • Steady-state ac circuits
  • Resonance and frequency response
  • Digital logic circuits
  • Microcontrollers (68HC11)
  • Computer-based instrumentation, including LabVIEW
  • Diode circuits
  • Electronic amplifiers
  • Field-effect and bipolar junction transistors
  • Operational amplifiers
  • Transformers
  • Ac and dc motors
  • Computer-aided circuit analysis (PSpice)

While the emphasis of this book is on basic concepts, a key feature is the inclusion of short articles scattered throughout showing how electrical-engineering concepts are applied in other fields. The subjects of these articles include anti-knock signal processing for internal combustion engines, a cardiac pacemaker, active noise control, and the use of the Global Positioning System in surveying, among others.

I welcome comments from users of this book. Information on how the book could be improved is especially valuable and will be taken to heart in future revisions. My e-mail address is arhamble@mtu.edu

SOFTWARE

Two CDs are included with this book. One contains the evaluation version of LabVIEW 6I which is briefly discussed in Section 9.4. LabVIEW has become the industry standard software package for engineering instrumentation and testing. The intention is to make students aware of how LabVIEW coupled with a personal computer and a data acquisition board can be used to rapidly create special-purpose instrumentation and control systems. Later when they have the need to design such systems, they will have enough knowledge to establish a proper direction for further development of their computer-aided instrumentation skills.

The second CD contains Orcad Family Release 9.2 Lite Edition. This is a powerful suite of programs produced by Cadence Systems for circuit analysis and design. In Appendix D, we show how to use Capture for entering circuit diagrams and setting up analyses, PSpice for analyzing the circuit, and Probe for viewing results. A number of circuits selected from throughout the book, starting in Chapter 2, are taken as examples. Students find computer-aided analysis to be an effective method for extending their "feel" for circuits and for checking some of the answers obtained through traditional analysis.

Besides the evaluation programs, the virtual instruments (LabVIEW programs) and circuit files discussed in the book are included on the CDs. Furthermore, solutions to the in-chapter exercises, answers for selected end-of-chapter problems, and summaries of key equations for each chapter are included in pdf files on both CDs.

CHANGES AND NEW FEATURES IN THE SECOND EDITION
  • New chapter entitled Computer-Based Instrumentation Systems (Chapter 9)
  • Extensive revision of the chapter on microcontrollers now featuring the 68HCll (Chapter 8)
  • Earlier treatment of digital systems (Part II)
  • Extensive revision of the chapter on field-effect transistors to emphasize MOS devices (Chapter 12)
  • New section on digital signal processing (Section 6.9)
  • New section on stepper motors (Section 17.5)
  • Minor revisions of the remainder of the book
  • Approximately 20% more end-of-chapter problems
  • Revision and consolidation of the computer-aided circuit analysis material (Appendix D)
  • Inclusion of a CD containing the evaluation version of LabVIEW 6I and the virtual instruments discussed in the book
  • Inclusion of a second CD containing the evaluation version of Orcad Lite 9.A prior differential equations course would be helpful but is not essential. Differential equations are encountered in Chapter 4 on transient analysis, but the skills needed are developed from basic calculus.

    PEDAGOGICAL FEATURES

    The book includes various pedagogical features designed with the goal of stimulating student interest, eliminating frustration, and engendering an awareness of the relevance of the material to their chosen profession. These features are:

    • Statement of learning objectives open each chapter
    • Comments in the margins emphasize and summarize important points or indicate common pitfalls that students need to avoid
    • Short boxed articles demonstrate how electrical-engineering principles are applied in other fields of engineering. For example, see the articles on active noise cancellation (page 253) and electronic pacemakers (starting on page 348).
    • Step-by-step problem solving procedures. For example, see the step-by-step summary of node-voltage analysis (on pages 70-71) or the summary of Théevenin equivalents (on page 86).
    • Complete solutions to the in-chapter exercises included as pdf files on both of the CDs provide students with help
    • Answers to approximately one-third of the end-of-chapter problems, provided as pdf files on both CDs, build student confidence and indicate where additional study is needed
    • Summaries of important points at the end of each chapter provide references for students
    • Key equations highlighted in the book and provided as pdf files on both CDs provide quick and convenient references for students
    MEETING ABET-DIRECTED OUTCOMES

    Courses based on this book provide excellent opportunities to meet many of the directed outcomes for accreditation. The Criteria for Accrediting Engineering Programs (for evaluations during the 2001-2002 accreditation cycle) require that graduates of accredited programs have "an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering" and "an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems." This book, in its entirety, is aimed at developing these abilities.

    Also, graduates must have "an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as analyze and interpret data." Chapter 9, Computer-Based Instrumentation Systems, helps to develop this ability. If the course includes a laboratory, this ability can be developed even further.

    Furthermore, the criteria require "an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams" and "an ability to communicate effectively." Courses based on this book contribute to these abilities by giving nonmajors the knowledge and vocabulary to communicate effectively with electrical engineers. The book also helps to inform electrical engineers about applications in other fields of engineering. To aid in communication skills, end-of-chapter problems that ask students to explain electrical-engineering concepts in their own words have been added in this edition.

    The LabVIEW and Orcad PSpice software packages distributed with this book contribute to developing "an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice."

    SOLUTIONS MANUAL AND WEB SITE

    Students can find solutions for the in-chapter exercises and answers (without solutions) for selected end-of-chapter problems on both of the CDs included with the book and on the web site. The web site also contains many links to interesting sites related to topics covered in the book.

    Any corrections that may be needed for the book or solutions manual will be posted on the web site as they are found.

    CONTENT AND ORGANIZATION Part I Circuits

    Chapter 1 defines current, voltage, power, and energy. Kirchhoff's laws are introduced. Voltage sources, current sources, and resistance are defined.

    Chapter 2 treats resistive circuits. Analysis by network reduction, node voltages, and mesh currents is covered. Thévenin equivalents, superposition, and the heatstone bridge are treated.

    Capacitance, inductance, and mutual inductance are treated in Chapter 3.

    Transients in electrical circuits are discussed in Chapter 4. First-order RL and RC circuits and time constants are covered followed by a discussion of second-order circuits.

    Chapter 5 considers sinusoidal steady-state circuit behavior. (A review of complex arithmetic is included in Appendix A.,) Power calculations, ac Thévenin and Norton equivalents, and balanced three-phase circuits are treated.

    Chapter 6 covers frequency response, Bode plots, resonance, and filters. The basic concept of Fourier theory (that signals are composed of sinusoidal components having various amplitudes, phases, and frequencies) is qualitatively discussed. A section on digital signal processing has been added in this edition.

    Part II Digital Systems

    Chapter 7 introduces logic gates and the representation of numerical data in binary form. It then proceeds to discuss combinatorial and sequential logic. Boolean algebra, De Morgan's laws, truth tables, Karnaugh maps, coders, decoders, flip flops, and registers are discussed.

    Chapter 8 treats microcomputers with emphasis on embedded systems using the Motorola 68HCll as the primary example. Computer organization and memory types are discussed. Digital process control using microcontrollers is described in general terms. Finally, selected instructions and addressing modes for the 68HCll are described. Assembly language programming is treated very briefly.

    Chapter 9, which is new in the second edition, discusses computer-based instrumentation systems including measurement concepts, sensors, signal conditioning, and analog-to-digital conversion. The chapter ends with a discussion of LabVIEW including an example virtual instrument that students can duplicate using the evaluation version on their own computers.

    Part III Electronics

    Chapter 10 presents the diode, its various models, load-line analysis, and diode circuits such as rectifiers, Zener-diode regulators, and wave-shapers.

    In Chapter 11, the specifications and imperfections of amplifiers that need to be considered in applications are discussed from a users perspective. These include gain, input impedance, output impedance, loading effects, frequency response, pulse response, nonlinear distortion, common-mode rejection, and dc offsets.

    Chapter 12 contains a totally revised treatment of the MOS field-effect transistor, its characteristic curves, load-line analysis, large-signal and small-signal models, bias circuits, the common-source amplifier, and the source follower.

    Chapter 13 gives a similar treatment for bipolar transistors. If desired, the order of Chapters 12 and 13 can be reversed. Another possibility is to skip most of both chapters so more time can be devoted to other topics.

    Chapter 14 treats the operational amplifier and many of its applications. Non-majors can learn enough from this chapter to design and use op-amp circuits for instrumentation applications in their own fields.

    Part IV Electromechanics

    Chapter 15 reviews basic magnetic field theory, analyzes magnetic circuits, and presents transformers.

    Dc machines and ac machines are treated in Chapters 16 and 17, respectively. The emphasis is on motors rather than generators because the nonelectrical engineer applies motors much more often than generators. In Chapter 16, an overall view of motors in general is presented before considering do motors, their equivalent circuits, and performance calculations. The universal motor and its applications are discussed.

    Chapter 17 deals with ac motors starting with the three-phase induction motor. Synchronous motors and their advantages with respect to power-factor correction are analyzed. Small motors including single-phase induction motors are also discussed. A section on stepper motors has been added.

Tomorrow's Engineers

Finding and developing practical ways to provide the energy needed for modern technical societies on a sustainable basis without disrupting the environment is the most important problem confronting the coming generation of engineers and scientists. Among the proposed energy sources, two of which (solar and wind) are used by the dandelion to grow and disperse its seeds are:

Wind energy
  • Earth-based solar thermal concentrators and photovoltaic solar cells
  • Hydroelectric energy
  • Biomass energy
  • Geothermal energy
  • Gulf stream, wave, and tidal energy
  • Clean coal, in which the C02 is captured and stored ot recycled in a biomass energy plant
  • Systems of nuclear fission reactors combined with hybrid fission/fusion reactors that burn the waste products of the fission reactors
  • Nuclear fusion
  • Hydrogen from water using sunlight aided by a catalyst
  • Enhanced power grids may need to be built to distribute energy from some of these proposed solutions. Conservation must also play a part, possibly including:

    • More efficient power grids
    • Hybrid or electric vehicles
    • Better mass transportation for people
    • Hydrogen-powered fuel-cell vehicles
    • Efficient lighting
    • More/better rail systems in place of trucks and highways
    • Better building design
    • Better intelligence in energy consumption

    Regardless of which solutions ultimately emerge, it is certain that all of the topics discussed in this book will play important roles. For example, see the Practical Application concerning energy-storage systems for electric vehicles starting on page 100.

    Format:Hardcover
    I'm a first year student in electrical engineering and I've been using this book since August as main source. I must admit the overall coverage is great for less than 1000 pages. It is easy to find a concept and to navigate between the well divided chapters. Unfortunatly, practical problems are left aside in this book. End-of-chapter problems are to basic for real-life engineering and are only useful to understand basic theory and to practice essential engineering maths. As many other books, complete solutions of problems are very hard to obtain via the Web. I would recommend using it as a reference to get a second way to explain essential ideas concerning circuits. The first and second chapter are great because they cover basic circuit analysis in a nice way and a lot of examples are used along the book. But when you dive in semiconductors and op-amp, it is getting too heavy. Overall, nice diagrams and example for theory most of the time well explained, but forget about complex and useful circuits.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Review of Hambley's Electrical Engineering Sept. 15 2003
    By A Customer
    Format:Hardcover
    I am an engineering student at Georgia Tech and have used various texts covering topics from orginismal biology to quantum physics. Hambley's Electrical Engineering book is lacking in some of the most fundamental elements that are required for a successful text in any engineering field. There are very few solutions to problems and the solution that are provided are incomplete, providing mostly the final answer as opposed to a complete logic pattern to achieve the answer. The in chapter exercises demonstrate only the most meager applications of the sometimes tedious analysis steps or theorems. Finally, the clarity of author's intent is often hazed by generality or over specificity. I cannot see how an electrical engineering major can use this text for anything other than a stabilizer for a wobbling table. Save yourself the money and purchase a Schaum's outline and a problem work book complete with solutions.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Feb. 26 2004
    By A Customer
    Format:Hardcover
    This is a horrible book to start out with. If you're new to the concepts in the book you will not learn much. If you're already knowledgeable in the topics covered it might be a decent reference, but to learn anything from...? Useless.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Not useful Nov. 14 2003
    By A Customer
    Format:Hardcover
    Weak point
    1. Lack of examples
    2. No detail solutions
    3. few solution to chapter exercise
    Good point
    1. Used blue, white and black instead of only black and white in color in book content.
    2. Hard cover, it's not easy to destroy the book cover
    3. thin in size. It used about 800 pages to cover Electronics, Digital system, electonmechanics and Circuit Theory.
    So great......

    1.0 out of 5 stars It has potential Oct. 17 2000
    By "andygoss" - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Hardcover
    this book has a lot of potential. As a college student, I must say that this book really stinks. The in-text examples do not represent what is needed to do the homework. Also, there is no way to check answers to the homework problems as there are no solutions in the back and a solutions manual is not available. The lack of solutions makes this book very difficult to use.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good Advanced Text. May 9 2007
    By Duncan Idaho - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Hardcover
    It does not seem that many people like this book. I used it for a sophmore level analog circuits course at my university. I found it to be an excellent text and very helpful in understanding electrical engineering. This text is designed to be read with a paper and pencil in hand. It is not a sit down and understand it kind of book. It requires some sincere and dedicated study, as the topic demands. It presents a number of difficult problems to help stretch the analytic capabilities of the student. It also comes with some very useful software. It isn't the best text book I have ever seen but it is close.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good book April 12 2007
    By Jonathan M. Banks - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Hardcover
    I had to get this book because my school required it but if I had the choice I would look for a better book. This book has no answers in the back and a select few on the book resources. The example problems are not very helpful and the book is confusing in almost every way.
