For undergraduate introductory or survey courses in electrical engineering.
This reliable text helps students learn electrical-engineering fundamentals with minimal frustration. Its goals are to present basic concepts in a general setting, to show students how the principles of electrical engineering apply to specific problems in their own fields, and to enhance the overall learning process. Circuit analysis, digital systems, electronics, and electromechanics are covered. A wide variety of pedagogical features stimulate student interest and engender awareness of the material’s relevance to their chosen profession.

This user-friendly book provides a solid foundation in the basics of circuits, electronics (analog and digital), and electromechanics and shows the reader how the principles apply to interesting, specific, real problems in their own fields. FEATURES- Written for users (rather than designers) of circuits, electronics, and electrical machines. Offers a "frustration-free" approach that anticipates trouble spots and provides answers for their most frequently asked questions. A self-contained treatment reviews prerequisite topics such as complex numbers and differential equations. Intersperses short, boxed articles throughout showing how basic electrical engineering concepts are applied in other engineering fields, e.g.- Anti-knock signal-processing circuits for internal combustion engines. A cardiac pacemaker. The use of the Global Position System in surveying. Batteries for electric/hybrid vehicles. Signal-processing for automotive-ignition control. Contains an introduction to computer-aided analysis using PSpice.About the Author:
