Format: Hardcover
If you need an engineering introduction into generators, motors, transformers, and the likes this book is good. The illustrations not only show simplistic diagrams but actual machines one will find in the job. Has solved examples and end of chapter questions. Covers a lot of ground but delivers the concepts well.

The product is in good condition and is exactly what I expected it to be. Unfortunately, it took longer than expected to arrive but I was very happy when I did receive it.

Reads like a cookbook, not an engineering textbook! Nov. 24 2007
By Mahmoud Al-Qudsi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I've just finished a university course with this book as the reference, and it's not been a happy experience. The author has a poor grasp of the concept of grammar-checking, and doesn't follow his own standards (sometimes including the imaginary "i"/"j" in formulas and sometimes leaving it out).

But the biggest problem is, the author makes no attempt to get the reader/student to understand WHY and HOW machine behavior is derived. Instead of deriving any equations (via KCL/KVL), PC Sen lists the equations as-is and expects you to memorize them.

Unfortunately, this is an engineering course and not English Lit: engineers need explanations and mathematics, not a "plug the variable in here and substitute to determine the answer" book.

Throughout the course the professor would have to point out inconstencies in the formulas provided and direct students to alternative online references as a substitute for this poor book's pitiful attempt at explaining power electronics to readers.

lousy text Dec 20 2004
By R. Huang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
terrible textbook

I took this course from the university that the author taught at. the book was this textbook. the pedagogy was terrible, some units such as (At/m) were not properly defined, the commentary was minimal except where it was copied from other books. it seems that the auther cannot be bothered to give a thorough explanation of the the basic concepts, and would only add in text as an afterthought. as a practicing professional in the field and as someone who has taught university level courses, I would say, find another textbook
Not good for beginners, Good for those persons who learnt the material before and wanna organize their mind Aug. 25 2014
By arash rashidi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Complete of terms and subjects in electric machines.
The author sometimes confuse the readers by his ambiguous explanations especially in DC machines and power electronic chapter.
Not recommended for a new reader in the context of electric machines.
Recommended for readers who learnt basic stuffs in electric machines before and want to have a kind-of dictionary to remember the terminologies and formulas.
