Book Description

September 26, 1997 0133354490 978-0849385742 2
In 1993, the first edition of The Electrical Engineering Handbook set a new standard for breadth and depth of coverage in an engineering reference work. Now, this classic has been substantially revised and updated to include the latest information on all the important topics in electrical engineering today. Every electrical engineer should have an opportunity to expand his expertise with this definitive guide.
In a single volume, this handbook provides a complete reference to answer the questions encountered by practicing engineers in industry, government, or academia. This well-organized book is divided into 12 major sections that encompass the entire field of electrical engineering, including circuits, signal processing, electronics, electromagnetics, electrical effects and devices, and energy, and the emerging trends in the fields of communications, digital devices, computer engineering, systems, and biomedical engineering. A compendium of physical, chemical, material, and mathematical data completes this comprehensive resource. Every major topic is thoroughly covered and every important concept is defined, described, and illustrated. Conceptually challenging but carefully explained articles are equally valuable to the practicing engineer, researchers, and students.
A distinguished advisory board and contributors including many of the leading authors, professors, and researchers in the field today assist noted author and professor Richard Dorf in offering complete coverage of this rapidly expanding field. No other single volume available today offers this combination of broad coverage and depth of exploration of the topics. The Electrical Engineering Handbook will be an invaluable resource for electrical engineers for years to come.

Editorial Reviews


"The entire work is heavy on math and includes excellent illustrations. In addition to the usual author and subject indexes, the reader will find indexes to the tables, figures, and equations, the latter being particularly useful. Because areas like communications and biomedical engineering are far from static, this new edition is a worthwhile addition as a technical reference." -John M. Robson "strongly recommendedThis definitive handbook is a must for any reference library." M. S. Roden, California State University, Los Angeles "Every major topic is thoroughly covered, and every important concept is defined, described, and illustrated. Conceptually challenging but carefully explained articles will be equally valuable to practicing engineers, researchers and students." -Electronic Servicing & Technology

4.0 out of 5 stars The books a part of every electrical engg. April 24, 2000
By A Customer
This book is really good. it has covered almost every fundamental what an electrical engg. looks out for. It will be really helpful for the designers who are looking out for some basics. Moreover it is a compilation of all fundamentals in one book and is a bible. Hence, it should be a part of every electrical engineer's collection of books.
