THE MOST COMPLETE AND CURRENT GUIDE TO ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING For more than a century, the Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers has served as the definitive source for all the pertinent electrical engineering data essential to both engineering students and practicing engineers. It offers comprehensive information on the generation, transmission, distribution, control, operation, and application of electric power. Completely revised throughout to address the latest codes and standards, the 16th Edition of this renowned reference offers new coverage of green technologies such as smart grids, smart meters, renewable energy, and cogeneration plants. Modern computer applications and methods for securing computer network infrastructures that control power grids are also discussed. Featuring hundreds of detailed illustrations and contributions from more than 75 global experts, this state-of-the-art volume is an essential tool for every electrical engineer. Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers, 16th Edition, covers: Units, symbols, constants, definitions, and conversion factors * Electric and magnetic circuits * Measurements and instruments * Properties of materials * Generation * Prime movers * Alternating-current generators * Direct-current generators * Hydroelectric power generation * Power system components * Alternate sources of power * Electric power system economics * Project economics * Transmission systems * High-voltage direct-current power transmission * Power system operations * Substations * Power distribution * Wiring design for commercial and industrial buildings * Motors and drives * Industrial and commercial applications of electric power * Power electronics * Power quality and reliability * Grounding systems * Computer applications in the electric power industry * Illumination * Lightning and overvoltage protection * Standards in electrotechnology, telecommunications, and information technologyLow-cost low-voltage capacitors have proved extremely useful in improving the performance of split-phase motors. ... Points of maximum starting torque and maximum starting torque per ampere are indi- cated on the diagram. ... However, in cases of severe starting duty, higher-voltage motors, or where capacitors are retained in the circuit during operation, paper or ... starting torque, and so the permanent-split capacitor motor is finding increasing use for fan drive in sizes up to 1a„4 hp.
