Industrial Electricity 9th Edition

Product Code/ISBN: 9781285863986

Industrial Electricity, 9th Edition, provides coverage of topics like electrical symbols and drawings, current, voltage, resistance, and power. Chapters introduce Ohm’s Law; series, parallel, and combination circuits; and resistive and reactive circuits. 

A thorough knowledge of electrical theory is not enough to be successful as an electrical technician. You must also learn to apply the knowledge that you have gained. Some of the information you’ll find in Industrial Electricity includes:

the language of electricity

electrical fundamentals

test equipment

basic resistive electrical circuits

magnets and magnetism

alternating current

AC circuits

conductor types and sizes

wiring methods


electrical distribution


electric heat

DC generators

DC motors

AC generators (alternators)

AC motors

motor control devices and circuits

basic industrial electronics

DC electronic variable speed drives

AC (inverter) drives

programmable logic controllers

Current and accurate material includes a thorough discussion of advanced subjects such as rotating machinery, motor controls, transformers, electronic drives, and PLCs, as well as practical information on key real-world applications of electrical theory, including installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. 

This must-have reference presents the essentials of electrical theory in a clear, current, logical manner to help you master both fundamental concepts and more advanced subjects relevant to the field of industrial electricity. The 9th Edition features more than 800 illustrations and photos to help explain key concepts and bring theory and practice to life.

Since Industrial Electricity was first published, it has proven to be a valuable tool for beginners and experienced technicians alike. This edition is well illustrated, and terms are defined when introduced. Each chapter begins with objectives and ends with review questions. New material has been added to cover compact fluorescent (CFL) and light-emitting diode (LED) lighting.
