alternating current fundamentals eighth edition pdf

ALTERNATING CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, 8E, an industrial standard for over thirty years, has been updated to provide readers with the most current information available on the essentials of alternating current. The topics in this book are arranged to build readers’ knowledge, progressing from basic principles such as the differences between peak, rms, and average values to more complex coverage of circuits containing resistance, inductance, and capacitance. This edition of ALTERNATING CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, 8E includes additional information on diodes and rectifiers and contains improved graphics that will assist readers in understanding state-of-the-art concepts.

Much of the electrical energy used worldwide is produced by alternating-current (ac)
generators. Such widespread use of alternating current means that students in electrical
trades must understand the principles of electricity and magnetism and their application to
alternating-current circuits, components, instruments, transformers, alternators, ac motors,
and control equipment.
