Electrical Circuit Theory and Technology

    Bird’s Electrical Circuit Theory and Technology  explains electrical circuit theory and associated technology topics in a straightforward  manner, supported by practical engineering examples and applications to ensure that  readers can relate theory to practice.

    The extensive and thorough coverage, containing over 800 worked examples,  makes this an excellent text for a range of courses, in particular for Degree and  Foundation Degree in electrical principles, circuit theory, telecommunications, and  electrical technology. The text includes some essential mathematics revision, together  with all the essential electrical and electronic principles for BTEC National and Diploma  syllabuses and City & Guilds Technician Certificate and Diploma syllabuses in engineering.  This material will be a great revision for those on higher courses.

    This edition includes several new sections, including glass batteries,  climate change, the future of electricity production, and discussions  concerning everyday aspects of electricity, such as watts and lumens,  electrical safety, AC vs DC, and trending technologies.
