The main purpose of this new edition continues to be to provide
guidelines for selecting and utilizing electric motors on the basis of
energy efficiency and life-cycle cost. In previous editions of this
book, particular emphasis was given to three-phase and single-phase
induction motors in the 1–200 hp range since this was the range
offering maximum opportunities for energy savings. However, since
the second edition, there has been a growing demand in the
direction of solid-state intensive electric motor drives as adjustable
or variable speed drives. New electric motors such as brushless DC
and switched reluctance have also been mass-produced and made
commercially available. The impetus toward this expansion of
power electronics has been provided by recent advancements in the
areas of solid-state switching devices, control electronics, and
advanced microcontrollers, microprocessors, and digital signal
processors (DSP). These advancements facilitate high-tech
applications and enable the introduction of power electronic
converters with highest performance, maximum efficiency, and
minimum volume and weight. In fact, electric motors with advanced
power electronic drivers have real and significant potential for
improving not only efficiency and life-cycle cost, but also reliability,
performance, and safety.
In this edition, Chapters 1, 2, 4, 5, and 7 from the previous
editions have been updated, rearranged, and revised. These chapters
present energy-efficient single-phase and three-phase induction
motors comprehensively. Chapters 3, 6, 8, 9, and 10 are new.
Chapter 3 presents the fundamentals of power electronics applicable
to electric motor drives. Adjustable speed drives and their
applications are explained in Chapter 6. Advanced permanent
magnet (PM) and brushless DC (BLDC) motor drives as well as
switched reluctance motor (SRM) drives are presented in Chapters
8 and 9, respectively. Finally, utility interface issues including power
factor correction (PFC) and active filters (AF) are discussed in
Chapter 10.
