A guide to drives essential to electric vehicles, wind turbines, and other motor-driven systems

Analysis and Control of Electric Drives is a practical and comprehensive text that offers a clear understanding of electric drives and their industrial applications in the real-world including electric vehicles and wind turbines. The authors - noted experts on the topic - review the basic knowledge needed to understand electric drives and include the pertinent material that examines DC and AC machines in steady state using a unique physics-based approach. The book also analyzes electric machine operation under dynamic conditions, assisted by Space Vectors.

The book is filled with illustrative examples and includes information on electric machines with Interior Permanent Magnets. To enhance learning, the book contains end-of-chapter problems and all topics covered use computer simulations with MATLAB Simulink and Sciamble Workbench software that is available free online for educational purposes. This important book:

  • Explores additional topics such as electric machines with Interior Permanent Magnets
  • Includes multiple examples and end-of-chapter homework problems
  • Provides simulations made using MATLAB Simulink and Sciamble Workbench, free software for educational purposes
  • Contains helpful presentation slides and Solutions Manual for Instructors; simulation files are available on the associated website for easy implementation
  • A unique feature of this book is that the simulations in Sciamble Workbench software can seamlessly be used to control experiments in a hardware laboratory

Written for undergraduate and graduate students, Analysis and Control of Electric Drives is an essential guide to understanding electric vehicles, wind turbines, and increased efficiency of motor-driven systems.
