All engineers need to understand the fundamental principles of electrical and electronic technology. This best-selling text provides a clear and accessible introduction to the area, with balanced coverage of electrical, electronic, and power engineering.

This volume covers the electrical engineering syllabuses of the Second and Third Year Courses for the Ordinary National Certificate in Electrical Engineering and of the First Year Course leading to a Degree of Engineering.

The rationalized M.K.S. system of units has been used throughout this book. The symbols, abbreviations and nomenclature are in accordance with the recommendations of the British Standards Institution, and, for the convenience of students, the symbols and abbreviations used in this book have been tabulated in the Appendix.

It is impossible to acquire a thorough understanding of electrical principles without working out a large number of numerical problems, and, while doing this, students should make a habit of writing the solutions in an orderly manner, attaching the name of the unit wherever possible. When students tackle problems in examinations or in industry, it is important that they express their solutions in a way that is readily intelligible to others, and this facility can only be acquired by experience. Guidance in this respect is given by the 106 worked examples in the text, and the 670 problems afford ample opportunity for practice.

Most of the questions have been taken from examination papers; and for permission to reproduce these questions I am indebted to the University of London, the East Midland Educational Union, the Northern Counties Technical Examination Council, the Union of Educational Institutions and the Union of Lancashire and Cheshire Institutes.
