Practical Electronics Handbook

Ian Sinclair, “Practical Electronics Handbook”
Newnes; 5 ed | 2000 | ISBN: 0750645857 | 576 pages | PDF | 3,8 MB

Review
‘This must be one of the best, if not the best, value-for-money handbooks that you can buy. It has been designed to include within a reasonable space most of the information that is useful in day-to-day electronics… A practical and comprehensive collection of circuits, rules of thumb and design for professional engineers, students and enthusiasts, and enough background to allow the understanding and development of a range of basic circuits.’ Elektor Electronics.

‘The handbook provides a clear, cohesive approach to complement and clarify the mass of information often provided in databooks.’ New Electronics.

‘An excellent handbook for the constructor ranging from resistor colour codes to simple transistor building blocks. An invaluable reference book for everyone from beginners to professional engineers. Covers passive and active discrete components circuits, linear and digital ICs and TTL and CMOS pinouts.’ Electronics and Beyond.

J & P Transformer Book, Thirteenth Edition

J & P Transformer Book, Thirteenth Edition
Publisher: Newnes | Pages: 992 | 2007-10-22 | ISBN 0750681640 | PDF | 23 MB

The J&P Transformer Book has been in print for 80 years, and is renowned internationally as the definitive reference work covering the design, construction, installation, monitoring and maintenance of power transformers in electricity generation and distribution, electricity substations, and industrial applications. The broad scope of the Transformer Book and its practical focus makes it ideal reading for graduate engineers embarking on a design career, students of electrical engineering, and a broader audience in the power engineering and transformer manufacturing sectors. However, it is not a text to read once and consign to the shelf, but rather a hard-working working reference for the seasoned professional as well as the novice.

The thirteenth edition includes new sections and updates throughout, referencing the latest International (IEC) and European standards. New material includes coverage of recent developments in amorphous steels, and expanded coverage of the competitive area of small distribution transformers.

The Electric Power Engineering Handbook, by Leonard L. Grigsby
CRC; 2 edition | English | May 30, 2007 | ISBN: 0849392934 | 950 Pages, Illustrated | PDF | 25,4 Mb
Description : A reference at once so elemental and so comprehensive, The Electric Power Engineering Handbook not only describes the field’s body of knowledge, but defines it. Written by expert contributors under the leadership of one of the world’s most respected and accomplished authorities in power engineering, the second edition remains the undisputed guide to power generation, transmission, and distribution, as well as for modeling, analyzing, planning, designing, monitoring, and controlling power systems. This fully updated edition is now available as a set of five books, each focused on a particular area of expertise. The handbook’s first edition spawned two bestselling specialist works, Electric Power Transformer Engineering and Electric Power Substations Engineering, each of which included new material not found in the handbook. For this edition, these highly popular progeny rejoin the handbook, supplying ten additional chapters. Along with updates to nearly every chapter, several rewritten articles, and new material added to existing sections, this edition features nine entirely new chapters on such areas as environmental effects of transmission systems, substation asset management, substation commissioning, distribution system characteristics and protection, real-time control of distributed generation, and flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) controllers. Retaining its unique tutorial style, The Electric Power Engineering Handbook, Second Edition prevails as a monument to the decades of ingenuity and tireless efforts of power engineers around the world.
