Designed to serve as a textbook for a single semester undergraduate course on electromechanical energy conversion devices or electric machines, ELECTRIC MACHINES strikes a balance between theoretical coverage, easy explanations, and practical applications, presenting real world applications of concepts without compromising on the rigor or the continuity of the text. The book provides excellent readability, in a conversational style, combined with invaluable industry insight. The accompanying website provides problems solved in MATLAB, SPICE simulations, manufacturing data, as well as additional problems for students and instructors.
Dino Zorbas holds a degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. He has 30+ years of experience in the power industry both in manufacturing and standards consulting. He has been teaching power related courses part time at McGill since the early eighties. His simultaneous industry and academia experience makes him uncannily insightful towards both student and employer needs. He continues to be a successful consultant and teacher.
