All conventional machines rely upon magnetic fields for the purpose of energy conversion. This book approaches the study of electric machines by directly dealing with the electromagnetic fields. Focusing on the terminal rather than on the internal characteristics of machines, the text characterizes the machine in terms of coupled magnetic circuits rather than magnetic fields. It provides problem sets and numerical examples, addresses Park’s equations starting from winding functions, describes operation as a LCI motor drive, and presents synchronous machine transient simulation as well as voltage regulation. The author aims to provide a deeper understanding of complex electromechanical drives. • Offers numerical examples • Covers Park's equations starting from winding functions • Presents synchronous machine transient simulation • Describes operation as a LCI motor drive • Addresses voltage regulation • Explores use of winding functions to calculate the self and mutual inductances of the machine • Explains application of winding functions to calculate the self and mutual inductances of the machine • Demonstrates use of MathCAD to solve steady state operating conditions • Shows how MATLAB®/Simulink® are used in large-signal modeling of synchronous machines

Industrial Electronics & Systems

The Industrial Electronics Handbook Second Edition - Five-Volume Set Edited by Bogdan M. Wilamowski and J. Auburn University, Alabama, USA

Industrial electronics systems govern many different functions that vary in complexity—from the operation of relatively simple applications, such as electric motors, to that of more complicated machines and systems, including robots and entire fabrication processes. The Industrial Electronics Handbook, Second Edition combines traditional and newer, more specialized knowledge that will help industrial electronics engineers develop practical solutions for the design and implementation of modern industrial systems. Embracing the broad technological scope of the field, this collection explores fundamental areas, including analog and digital circuits, electronics, electromagnetic machines, and signal processing. It also facilitates the use of intelligent systems—such as neural networks, fuzzy systems, and evolutionary methods—in terms of a hierarchical structure that makes factory control and supervision more efficient by addressing the needs of all production components. Assembling the world’s leading researchers to cover key aspects of this branch of science, the handbook includes the following volumes, which are available individually or as a complete set: • Fundamentals of Industrial Electronics • Industrial Communication Systems • Intelligent Systems • Power Electronics and Motor Drives • Control and Mechatronics Enhancing its value, this fully updated collection presents research and global trends as published in the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics Journal, one of the largest and most respected publications in the field.

To help readers understand the myriad physical phenomena and the sensors used to measure them, the handbook re-evaluates the importance of electronic circuits. It goes beyond their value as an end product and focuses on their importance as building blocks in larger systems. Taking into account the relative complexity of most fabrication processes, contributors simplify the development and application of communication systems that can be tailored for specific industrial environments to link the various elements of each.

Discrete-Time Inverse Optimal Control for Nonlinear Systems Edgar N. Sanchez and Fernando Ornelas-Tellez This book presents a novel inverse optimal control approach for stabilization and trajectory tracking of discrete-time nonlinear systems. This approach avoids the need to solve the associated Hamilton-JacobiBellman equation and minimizes a cost functional, resulting in efficient controllers. The book also proposes the use of recurrent neural networks to model discrete-time nonlinear systems. Combined with the inverse optimal control scheme, such models constitute a powerful tool to deal with uncertainties such as unmodeled dynamics and disturbances. Simulations illustrate the effectiveness of the synthesized controllers. Catalog no. K18856, April 2013, 268 pp. ISBN: 978-1-4665-8087-9, $159.95 / £99.00 Also available as an eBook

Industry Applications Electric Utility Resource Planning Economics, Reliability, and Decision-Making Steven Sim Florida Power & Light Company, Miami, USA

People involved in decisions about electric power often have misconceptions regarding how electric utilities operate their systems of power plants and how they plan for the future. This book explains how utilities "work" and how utility planning is (or should be) conducted. It leads readers through an exercise of creating a hypothetical electric utility system of various types of power plants. It shows how those power plants would be operated, then walks the reader through the steps of analyzing new power plants and energy conservation options to determine how the utility’s customers would best be served. • Explains how an electric utility actually "works" • Discusses the three questions utilities must always answer in their planning for future resources • Presents the analytical steps a utility would (should) use to reach resource decisions, and walks the reader through an actual analysis for a hypothetical utility system • Uses numerous tables, figures, and graphs to illustrate key points and to highlight the analytical results • Includes a glossary of energy/utility terms and five mini-lessons that further explain issues explored in the analyses

Selected Contents Introduction. How Does an Electric Utility Actually "Work"? Overview of Utility Resource Planning. Reliability Analyses for Our Utility System. Resource Option Analyses for Our Utility System: Supply Options. Resource Option Analyses for Our Utility System: DSM Options. Final Resource Option Analyses for Our Utility System. Are We Done Yet? Other Factors That Can (and Will) Complicate Resource Planning Analyses. Final Thoughts (Including Some Opinions). Appendices. Catalog no.

Business Essentials for Utility Engineers Richard E. Brown Vice President, Quanta Technology, Cary, North Carolina, USA

“The author does excellent work in organizing, describing, and explaining the business concepts. All concepts are clearly and accurately explained, and the material is presented at an appropriate level of complexity and depth ... informative and valuable as a reference book. I recommend the book to any utility engineer responsible for planning, designing, managing, or maintaining utility infrastructure.” —Robert E. Bisson, IEEE Power & Energy Magazine

It is no longer acceptable for engineers to make spending decisions simply because they make good engineering sense—they must justify these decisions with good business sense. This book covers basic business topics from the perspective of utility engineers, including regulation, ratemaking, accounting, finance, economics, budgeting, strategy, and asset management. • Uses mathematics and analytical geometry to describe and demonstrate business concepts • Describes how business skills can be applied to typical engineering decisions made by utility employees • Provides a solid foundation of business theory, describes how to properly apply this theory to utilities, and teaches specific business skills that can be used by utility engineers • Enables utility engineers to combine good technical analysis with good business analysis and to communicate to executives in a language that they understand • Includes summary and study questions at the end of each chapter
