For electrical apprenticeship and basic electrical courses taught to students in departments such as mechanical technology, plastics technology, and air-conditioning. This first Canadian edition builds upon all of the hallmark features of the US edition including a solid theoretical perspective that complements application; effective, easy-to-follow illustrations; short, concise explanations of key concepts; a large number of examples and exercises; and a wealth of end-of-chapter self-test pedagogy. Material has been updated throughout the text, enhancing the overall pedagogy. The text has also been reorganized to better suit the various provincial curriculum guidelines. The implementation of electron flow addresses the increasing popularity of this approach within the apprenticeship market. Other new content includes expanded material on lead-acid cells, resonant circuits, semiconductor devices, variable frequency drives, and power factor correction.1 1.10 Phasor Diagrams and Effective Values So far, the phasor diagrams have always shown the peak values of voltage ... However, because effective values are usually given, we can change the phasor diagrams accordingly. ... It is a measure of the energy associated with the creation of magnetic fields and electric fields.
