Surveying all of the technologies used to satisfy the world’s demand for open, efficient, and clean electricity. The Electric Generators Handbook, Two-Volume Set provides the first unified, in-depth examination of both synchronous and variable-Speed generators for stand-alone and grid-connected applications. Individually, each book offers authoritative, tightly focused treatment that is ideal for specialists. Together, they offer the most complete reference available on the topologies, steady state and transients modelling, performance, control, design, and testing of stand-alone and grid-connected generators.

About The Author

Professor Ion Boldea, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) member since 1977, and Fellow from 1996, worked and published extensively, since 1970, papers (over 120, many within IEEE) and monographs (13) in the United States and the United Kingdom, in the broad field of rotary and linear electric machines modelling, design, power electronics advanced (vector and direct torque [power])control, design, and testing in various applications, including variable-speed wind and hydraulic generator systems, automotive integrated starter-alternators, magnetically levitated vehicles (MAGLEV), and linear reciprocating motion permanent magnet (PM) generators. Professor Boldea is a full member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts at Salzburg and of the Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences.
