For ease of use, this edition has been divided into the following subject sections: general principles; materials and processes; control, power electronics and drives; environment; power generation; transmission and distribution; power systems; sectors of electricity use. New chapters and major revisions include: industrial instrumentation; digital control systems; programmable controllers; electronic power conversion; environmental control; hazardous area technology; electromagnetic compatibility; alternative energy sources; alternating current generators; electromagnetic transients; power system planning; reactive power plant and FACTS controllers; electricity economics and trading; power quality. *An essential source of techniques, data and principles for all practising electrical engineers *Written by an international team of experts from engineering companies and universities *Includes a major new section on control systems, PLCs and microprocessorsBecause there is no electrical connections between the diode and the transistor, very good electrical isolation ... on outputs because higher currents are being controlled by the cards and the loads (solenoids and relay coils) are often inductive.
