The “Electrical Motor Controls and Protection Handbook” is an authoritative reference guide, offering a comprehensive overview of motor control systems and protective measures. This book equips engineers, students, and professionals with essential knowledge on motor control technologies, safety protocols, and troubleshooting techniques, making it an indispensable resource in the field.
An electric motor is often used as a discrete control element in a control system if driving a pump, conveyor belt, or other machine for the transportation of a process substance. As such, it is important to understand the functioning of motor control circuits.
Of all the available electric motor types, the most common found in industrial applications (by far) is the three-phase AC induction motor. For this reason, this section of the book will focus exclusively on this type of motor as a final control element.
