Overview

About the Product

Today's electrical instructors are looking for a resource that moves beyond traditional textbooks to give their students more than just transformer theory, but also the practical information that can be put to use in everyday situations once they enter the world of work. TRANSFORMERS FOR THE ELECTRICIAN is the perfect solution! Written in a conversational style that minimizes technical jargon in favor of laymen's terms, the book presents a solid, comprehensive theoretical background of transformer operation, exploring its most important concepts through real-world examples, practical maintenance procedures, and pertinent National Electrical Code® rules. The end result: students will gain a thorough understanding of the critical information that a successful working electrician needs in order to connect, troubleshoot, and size just about any type of transformer.

Features

  • Mix of theory and practical come together to provide a critical understanding that any successful working electrician needs in order to connect, troubleshoot, and size just about any type of transformer.

  • Fills in gaps left by other transformer books by including coverage of voltage correction taps, control transformers, and nonstandard transformer connections.

  • Highlights the proper connections for the most common transformers with valuable connection diagrams.

  • Encourages critical thinking and application of key concepts with Review Questions and Exercises at the end of each chapter.

  • Expands the wealth of resources available to students with Appendices that contain reference information about transformer sizes and motor full load amps.

Instructors Manual for Gerth's Transformers for the Electrician  (ISBN-10: 1435482409 | ISBN-13: 9781435482401)
Delmar's Standard Textbook of Electricity  (ISBN-10: 1418065803 | ISBN-13: 9781418065805)

Understanding the theory and application of electrical concepts is necessary for a successful career in the electrical field specifically in industrial maintenance and installation, and this newly revised, full color text delivers! Delmar's Standard Textbook of Electricity, Fourth Edition trains aspiring electricians by blending concepts relating to electrical theory with practical 'how to' information that prepares readers for situations commonly encountered on the job. This revision retains all the hallmarks of our market-leading prior editions, but displays enhancements such as more practical application problems. Topics span the major aspects of the electrical field including direct and alternating current circuits, basic theory, transformers, generators, and motors. This new edition has been organized so that all relevant information is located within a given chapter which allows for flexibility to access and cover topics in any order making this text an indispensable resource.

Electrical Transformers and Rotating Machines  (ISBN-10: 1401899420 | ISBN-13: 9781401899424)

Now in its Second Edition, this book is an excellent resource for electrical students and professionals who need a comprehensive explanation of theory and practical applications of electrical machines. The book includes nine experiments enabling readers to reinforce the theory discussed earlier. Students begin with a study of magnetism and magnetic induction, single-phase isolation transformers, current transformers, and autotransformers. A unit on three-phase power refreshes the student with basic three-phase connections and calculations before proceeding into three-phase transformers.

Electricity 3: Power Generation, and Delivery  (ISBN-10: 1401897207 | ISBN-13: 9781401897208)

Electricity 3 explores various types of generators and the delivery of single phase and 3-phase power to the customer site. The Eighth Edition is updated to the 2005 National Electrical Code® and includes safety features from the power supply industry and current OSHA standards where applicable. New concepts in generation for standby or emergency power have been added, while traditional methods have been organized to provide understanding and transition to the modern methods. This book gives concise, useful information on the connections, the concepts of generation, and control for the production of electricity.
