4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic book of motor/generators May 25 2000
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars 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
3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of good info, poorly presented July 19 2013
By MattT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
There's a lot of good information in this book, and the writers tried really hard to present in a clear and well-organized manner. And a lot of the time, they succeed. But a lot of the time, they don't. A big chunk of that can be traced to an index that needs more entries, including a more thorough consideration of the multiple ways someone might look something up. Also, large portions of the books convey information by using variable names, and worse, a lot of different quatities will have the same symbol and be differentiated only by the subscript--and if you forget what that one symbol means and can't find that one place where it was defined, too bad. A summary table of symbols is sorely needed.

So, yeah. I've read worse, and I've read better.
3.0 out of 5 stars Short explanations, a lot of examples Sept. 26 2012
By Raul Gomez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great book if you are taking a course involving Electric Machines. I usually read a chapter or part of it before my class, and it is quite difficult to understand everything, mainly because this book assumes you actually know a lot about electric circuits. I'd always wait until my class to listen to my teacher's explanation, who knows a lot about this book. I would recommend this only if you have previously taken courses about electricity and magnetism, or if you have a teacher that can answer your doubts.
