Electrical Principles uses a student-friendly writing style, a range of fully worked examples and full-colour illustrations to make the basic principles easier to understand. Covering the core knowledge components of the current UEE11 Electrotechnology Training Package and referencing the new AS/NZS 3000:2018 Wiring Rules, this textbook is structured, written and illustrated to present the information in a way that is accessible to students.With a new focus on sustainable energy, brushless DC motors and the inclusion of student ancillaries, as well as structuring more closely to the knowledge and skills requirements for each competency unit covered

All of the most important types of motor and drive are covered, including d.c., induction, synchronous (including synchronous reluctance and salient Permanent Magnet), switched reluctance, and stepping. There has been significant innovation in this area since the fourth edition, particularly in the automotive, aircraft and industrial sectors, with novel motor topologies emerging, including hybrid designs that combine permanent magnet and reluctance effects. We now include a physical basis for understanding and quantifying torque production in these machines, and this leads to simple pictures that illuminate the control conditions required to optimise torque. The key converter topologies have been brought together, and the treatment of inverter switching strategies expanded. A new chapter is devoted to the treatment of Field Oriented control, reflecting its increasing importance for all a.c. motor drives. A unique physically-based approach is adopted which builds naturally on the understanding of motor behaviour developed earlier in the book: the largely non-mathematical treatment dispels much of the mystique surrounding what is often regarded as a difficult topic. Helps users acquire knowledge and understanding of the capabilities and limitations of motors and drives without struggling through unnecessary math and theory Presents updated material on the latest and most widely-used motors and drives, including brushless servo motors Includes additional diagrams and worked examples throughout this updated edition Includes a physical basis for the understanding and quantifying torque production
. It focuses on essential knowledge of electrical principles within the field. Fully revised for electrical courses in the UEE11 Electrotechnology Training Package, including the UEE30811 Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician qualification.
Electrotechnology Practice includes more than 1000 illustrations to help you learn various concepts and the real-world aspects of electrical practices. The text has a range of examples and review questions to support your understanding.
It covers the two key qualifications in the UEE Electrotechnology Training Package:
- Certificate II in Electrotechnology (Career Start)
- Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician
Electrotechnology Practice prepares you to sit for the Capstone Assessment or the Licenced Electrician’s Assessment (LEA), which is a requirement for an Electrician’s Licence.
Telecommunications provides comprehensive coverage of the UEENEEF102A unit on installing and maintaining cabling to telecommunication services. This text represents an important component in national training packages for an electrical trade qualification and advanced trade competencies. Written in clear and direct language for AQF Level 2, it supports student learning through numerous examples and diagrams.
