This book is part of a three-book series. Ned Mohan has been a leader in EES education and research for decades, as author of the best-selling text/reference Power Electronics. This book emphasizes applications of electric machines and drives that are essential for wind turbines and electric and hybrid-electric vehicles. The approach taken is unique in the following respects: A systems approach, where Electric Machines are covered in the context of the overall drives with applications that students can appreciate and get enthusiastic about; A fundamental and physics-based approach that not only teaches the analysis of electric machines and drives, but also prepares students for learning how to control them in a graduate level course; Use of the space-vector-theory that is made easy to understand. They are introduced in this book in such a way that students can appreciate their physical basis; A unique way to describe induction machines that clearly shows how they go from the motoring-mode to the generating-mode, for example in wind and electric vehicle applications, and how they ought to be controlled for the most efficient operation.
