Basic concepts of electronics math Numerous problems and examples Uses real-world applications
The emphasis of this book is on understanding the essentials of analog electronics, rather than blindly applying equations and formulae. Students and professionals at all levels will be able to grasp the basic concepts without being side-tracked by burdensome calculations, which are now solved by computers in the real world and therefore need not hold back the engineer or designer. Analog electronics is a topic in its own right, but also relates to most other aspects of electronics. Often ignored in favour of digital techniques, it is nevertheless a compulsory area of study for all electronics engineers and technicians as it underpins many technologies. To reflect the increased use of computer simulation by electronic design engineers, the many illustrations in this book include graphs and numerical data obtained from computer analyses. Owen Bishop has written many best-selling books including Understand Electrical and Electronic Maths, Understand Technical Maths, Understand Electronics and Understand Electronic Filters, all published by Newnes. avoids becoming bogged down with heavy calculations offers the basics so as to develop intuitive understanding illustrated with computer simulations of analog circuits

To be accredited, a power electronics course should cover a significant amount of design content and include extensive use of computer-aided analysis with simulation tools such as SPICE. Based upon the authors' experience in designing such courses, SPICE for Power Electronics and Electric Power, Second Edition integrates a SPICE simulator with a power electronics course at a junior or senior level. This textbook assumes no prior knowledge of SPICE and introduces the applications of various SPICE commands through numerous examples of power electronic circuits. The authors emphasize the techniques for power conversions and for quality output waveforms, rather than accurate modeling of power semiconductor devices. This textbook enables students to compare the results with those that are obtained in a classroom environment via simple switch models or devices. Not only a supplement to any standard textbook on power electronics and power systems, this volume can also be used as a textbook on SPICE. It suggests laboratory experiments and design problems, and presents complete laboratory guidelines for each experiment. This text can also be used as a laboratory manual for power electronics, with its design problems serving as assignments for a design-oriented simulation laboratory.
A practical new approach that brings together circuit theory and field theory for the practicing engineer To put it frankly, the traditional education of most engineers and scientists leaves them often unprepared to handle many of the practical problems they encounter. The Fields of Electronics: Understanding Electronics Using Basic Physics offers a highly original correction to this state of affairs. Most engineers learn circuit theory and field theory separately. Electromagnetic field theory is an important part of basic physics, but because it is a very mathematical subject, the connection to everyday problems is not emphasized. Circuit theory, on the other hand, is by its nature very practical. However, circuit theory cannot describe the nature of a facility, the interconnection of many pieces of hardware, or the power grid that interfaces each piece of hardware. The Fields of Electronics offers a unique approach that brings the physics and the circuit theory together into a seamless whole for today's practicing engineers. With a clear focus on the real-world problems confronting the practitioner in the field, the book thoroughly details the principles that apply to: * Capacitors, inductors, resistors, and transformers * Utility power and circuit concepts * Grounding and shielding * Radiation * Analog and digital signals * Facilities and sites Written with very little mathematics, and requiring only some background in electronics, this book provides an eminently useful new way to understand the subject of electronics that will simplify the work of every novice, experienced engineer, and scientist.
