Industrial Power Distribution Second Version by Ralph E. Fehr
SINCE THE RELEASE of the primary version in October 2001, I’ve obtained many feedback from readers saying how useful the textual content was whereas getting ready for and taking the Skilled Engineering (PE) examination. Reality be instructed, I by no means actually thought in regards to the PE examination whereas getting ready the primary version manuscript. My goal was merely to supply a e book helpful to each college students and practitioners.
When the Nationwide Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) restructured the Electrical Engineering PE examination in April 2009 making a power-specific examination, I noticed the relevance of aligning this textual content extra with the brand new examination format. A number of new subjects, together with arc flash hazard and lighting programs, have been added to this version, retaining present with the most recent traits and practices within the energy area. Extra depth and a few derivations have additionally been added to different sections, resembling an in-depth exploration of the per-unit system, further materials on motor software, an intensive evaluation of AC energy in each the time and phasor domains, and an intuitive growth of three-phase symmetrical parts.
I’ve by no means believed in deriving an equation merely for the sake of deriving it (that may be a nice train for mathematicians, however engineers ought to focus their efforts on software of the method), however AC energy and symmetrical parts are exceptions to my tenet on derivations since these are so extensively used by energy engineers, and full comprehension, for my part, requires going by means of the step-by-step growth. Enhancements resembling these ought to add to the extent of understanding of important energy engineering ideas for a lot of college students.
Practitioners within the electrical energy trade will even discover this e book helpful each as a reference and as a method of filling in gaps of their understanding of key ideas. Primarily based largely on practices in the US, this e book references primarily US requirements and codes. Typically instances, related requirements and codes have been developed and adopted overseas, and readers outdoors the US are inspired to research native requirements and codes. Equally, customary US models of measurements, as are generally encountered in the US, are used all through the e book. The fabric coated on this e book will probably be a invaluable reference for the practising energy engineer, however will probably be simply as useful to the engineering pupil pursuing a profession within the energy trade.
Few US universities have complete packages in electrical energy that align with trade necessities. Narrowing the hole between what subjects are taught on the college and what expertise are wanted by trade must be made a really excessive precedence, each in academia and in trade. An in depth academia–trade partnership is required to perform such a lofty purpose. It’s my hope that this e book will assist slim the hole and forge the partnership. Growing new programs primarily based on Industrial Power Distribution and incorporating the e book into current programs will facilitate the alignment of the educational curriculum with trade wants.
Over 370 college students on the College of South Florida and plenty of extra by means of quick programs performed worldwide have studied the contents of the primary version, and consequently, many constructive feedback had been made. Between these feedback and the experience of the manuscript reviewers, I imagine the second version of Industrial Power Distribution will probably be a invaluable useful resource for engineering college students and practising energy engineers alike, and can assist create an educational atmosphere higher capable of deal with the wants of the electrical energy trade.
