Extracted from the highly successful Foundations of Electrical Engineering by the same author, this work presents the fundamentals of electric power systems for all engineering students. The emphasis falls on the principles and characteristics of electric motors in steady-state and system applications. The presentation assumes knowledge of basic physics and calculus and is ideal for a one-semester survey of electric power systems for students knowing basic circuit theory. Relevant electrical physics and three-phase circuits are presented. Used with Foundations of Electric Circuits, this book is ideal for a one-semester course in circuits and electric power for all engineers. FEATURES/BENEFITS Emphasis is placed on clear definitions of concepts and vocabulary. Problems are offered at three levels: qWhat ifq problems extending examples in the text, with answers; qCheck our understandingq problems after each major section, with answers, and extensive end-of-chapter problems identified with chapter sections, with answers for odd problems. Full pedagogical tools: chapter objectives, marginal aids, chapter summaries, chapter glossaries tied to context, and a complete index.Three 25-kVA, 8600/1 200- V, 60-Hz, single-phase transformers are connected in a delta-wye connection for ... at rated kVA, the iron loss/transformer is 550 W and the copper loss/transformer is 600 W.
