The volume offers all readers a good technical treatment of the all possible issues related to the design and fabrication of small motors. In general, the concepts described in this book would normally be applicable to larger machines. The layout of the publication is very goof and reader-friendly, it means that the information is places exactly where it would be needed. The theory of the electric motors is explained in a very understandable and readable manner making this book a complete reference source for the design and manufacturing of the small electric motors, i.e. ones of less than 10 hp power, and their applications. It provides readers with the remarkably comprehensive intro on the basics of such motors and gives a detailed coverage of almost twenty types of electric motors and drives. The authors of the book have also included several step-by-step methods of calculations related to the design and application of the motors, supplemented with the informative practical examples. The required reference data on construction materials and fabrication methods is also there. Definitely recommended reading for people directly involved in the design, operation and technical maintenance of the subject motors and trying to find the best cost-effective solutions.
