  • 4. APreface to the Twenty-ThirdRevised Multicoloured EditionAuthors feel happy to present to their esteemed readers thisrevised first multicoloured edition of Vol. I of “A Textbook ofElectrical Technology”. To provide a comprehensive treatmentof topics in ‘‘Basic Electrical Engineering’’ both for electrical as wellas non-electrical students pursuing their studies in civil, mechanical,mining,textile,chemical,industrial,environmental,aerospace,electronicand computer engineering, information technology both at the Degreeand Diploma level. Based on the suggestions received from ouresteemed readers, both from India and abroad, the scope of the bookhas been enlarged according to their requirements.Establishment of Technological Universities have taken place inrecent past. This resulted into a pool of expert manpower within alarge area. Unification of syllabi has taken place and the questionpapers set during the last 4-5 years have a wider variety and are ofmore inquisitive nature. Solutions to these with brief logical reasoningshave been added for the benefit of our student community.Many universities include a brief coverage on methods of “ElectricalPower Generation”, in their first and basic paper on this subject.Hence, this revision includes an introductory chapter on this topic.It is earnestly hoped that with these extensive additions andrevisions, this revised edition will prove even more useful to ournumerous readers in developing more confidence while appearing atnational competitive examinations.I would like to thank my Publishers particularly Mr. RavindraKumar Gupta, M.D. and Mr. Bhagirath Kaushik, Regional Manager(Western India) of S. Chand & Company Ltd., for the personal interestthey look in the publishing of this revised and enlarged edition.Our student-friends, teacher-colleagues, Booksellers and Universityauthorities have been showing immense faith and affection in ourbook, which is acknowledged with modesty and regards. We are surethat this revised edition will satisfy their needs to a still greater extentand serve its cause more effectively.S.G. TARNEKAR(v)
  • 5. (vi)TPreface to the Twenty-second EditionThe primary objective of Vol. I of A Textbook of ElectricalTechnology is to provide a comprehensive treatment of topics in‘‘Basic Electrical Engineering’’ both for electrical as well as non-electrical students pursuing their studies in civil, mechanical, mining,textile, chemical, industrial, environmental, aerospace, electronicand computer engineering both at the Degree and Diploma level.Based on the suggestions received from our esteemed readers, bothfrom India and abroad, the scope of the book has been enlargedaccording to their requirements. Almost half the solved exampleshave been deleted and replaced by latest examination papers set upto1994 in different engineering colleges and technical institutions inIndia and abroad.Following major additions/changes have been made in the presentedition :1. Three new chapters entitled (a) A.C. Network Analysis (b) A.C.Filter Networks and (c) Fourier Series have been added therebywidening the scope of the book.2. The chapter on Network Theorems has been updated with theaddition of Millman’s Theorem (as applicable to voltage and currentsources or both) and an article on Power Transfer Efficiency relatingto Maximum Power Transfer Theorem.3. The additions to the chapter on Capacitors include detailedarticlesonTransientRelationsduringCapacitorChargingandDischargingCycles and also the Charging and Discharging of a Capacitor withInitial Charge.4. Chapter on Chemical Effects of Current has been thoroughlyrevised with the inclusion of Electronic Battery Chargers, StaticUninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) Systems, High TemperatureBatteries, Secondary Hybrid Cells, Fuel Cells and Aircraft and SubmarineBatteries.5. A detailed description of Thermocouple Ammeter has beenadded to the chapter on Electrical Instruments.6. The chapter on Series A.C. Circuits has been enriched withmany articles such as Determination of Upper and Lower Half-powerFrequencies, Value of Edge Frequencies and Relation betweenResonant Power and Off-resonance Power.It is earnestly hoped that with these extensive additions andrevisions, the present edition will prove even more useful to ournumerous readers than the earlier ones.As ever before, we are thankful to our publishers particularly Sh.Ravindra Kumar Gupta for the personal interest he took in theexpeditious printing of this book and for the highly attractive coverdesign suggested by him. Our sincere thanks go to their hyperactiveand result-oriented overseas manager for his globe-trotting efforts topopularise the book from one corner of the globe to the other. Lastlywe would love to record our sincere thanks to two brilliant ladies; Mrs.Janaki Krishnan from ever-green fairy land of Kerala and Ms. ShwetaBhardwaj from the fast-paced city of Delhi for the secretarial supportthey provided us during the prepration of this book.AUTHORS
