Meet Nikola Tesla, the genius engineer and tireless inventor whose technology revolutionized the electrical age of the 20th century. Although eclipsed in fame by Edison and Marconi, it was Tesla's vision that paved the way for today's wireless world. (PBS Documentary - 53 min)
This is the home reference book with more than 800 clear color photos and over 40 diagrams that show you exactly what you need to know about home electrical service, all the most common circuits, all the most-needed techniques, all the most essential tools and materials.
This resource succeeds at breaking down the discipline. Containing the useful concepts and building blocks that go into making a power converter operate successfully, this book provides a description of the characteristics of different types of power semiconductor devices and their application to power converter circuits. Applications to power transmission, electric drives, and medical equipment are included to illustrate the wide range of power electronics in both small and high power circuits.
Designed for both the student and hobbyist, this updated revision is an introduction to the theory and practice of electronics including advances in microcontrollers, sensors, and wireless communication. Each chapter contains a brief lab to demonstrate the topic under discussion, then moves on to use all of the knowledge mastered to build a programmable robot (Arduino and Netduino). New material on using Raspberry Pi and Python has been included. Covering both the theory and also its practical applications, this text leads the reader through the basic scientific concepts underlying electronics, building basic circuits, learning the roles of the components, the application of digital theory, and the possibilities for innovation by combining sensors, motors, and microcontrollers.
Brian ScaddanOCOs Electrical Installation Work explains in detail how and why electrical installations are designed, installed and tested. You will be guided in a logical, topic by topic progression through all the areas required to complete the City and Guilds 2357 Diploma in Electrotechnical Technology.
