This book contains, under one cover, the theory, construction, design, control electronics and in-depth analysis of several of these non-traditional machines such as stepper motors, switched reluctance motors, permanent magnet dc machines, brushless dc machines and linear induction machines. These machines are finding ever-increasing applications, typically in position control systems, robotics and mechatronics, electric vehicles and high speed transportation. A particular feature of this book is that it does not stop at the basic principles of these complex machines but offers the recent developments and current research information as well, making it useful for the senior graduate students and research scholars in the field of electrical machines and drives.
Late Professor K Venkataratnam was a faculty member at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, for 38 years. His areas of research were electrical machines, special and general, magnetic field problems, power electronics and drives and the application of superconductivity in electrical engineering. He had guided numerous PhD and MTech students during his career and has made significant contributions to literature.
