It is quite obvious that the electric energy is one of the key components in a community of today. The author of the present handbook made a good attempt to take an in-depth approach to the variable-speed and constant-speed electric generator systems operating in stand-alone mode and/or at power grid capacities.
The book contains nearly all parameter expressions and models that may be required for the modeling as well as for the design and control, with the text part being supplemented with so many informative practical case studies for better assimilation of the material by the readers. The book has been fully educated to the electric machine/power systems people. It starts with the topics of WRIC, i.e. wound rotor induction generators, providing technical info on them, as well as on the steady-state transients, vector, direct power control and testing issues.
Then there are chapters addressing the CRIG, i.e. cage rotor induction generators, integrated starter alternators, linear reciprocating and linear progressive motion alternators, and so many other issues relating to the variable speed generators, so this publication will be very useful to any people dealing with the design, building, installation and subsequent operation and maintenance of the subject machinery.
