Book Description

Electrical Engineering Fundamentals

    Many, in their quest for knowledge in engineering, find typical textbooks intimidating. Perhaps due to an extensive amount of physics theory, an overwhelming barrage of math, and not enough practical application of the engineering principles, laws, and equations. Therein lies the difference between this text and those voluminous and daunting conventional university engineering textbooks. This text leads the reader into more complex and abstract content after explaining the electrical engineering concepts and principles in an easy to understand fashion, supported by analogies borrowed from day-to-day examples and other engineering disciplines. Many complex electrical engineering concepts, for example, power factor, are examined from multiple perspectives, aided by diagrams, illustrations, and examples that the reader can easily relate to.

    This book is ideal for engineers, engineering students, facility managers, engineering managers, program/project managers, and other executives who do not possess a current working knowledge of electrical engineering. Because of the simple explanations, analogies, and practical examples employed by the author, this book serves as an excellent learning tool for non-engineers, technical writers, attorneys, electrical sales professionals, energy professionals, electrical equipment procurement agents, construction managers, facility managers, and maintenance managers.
