Book Description

The essential guide for power engineering and industrial control applications.

From the Back Cover

* Includes practical coverage of key topics such as troubleshooting and control wiring
* Readers will also gain a thorough understanding of the problems that can be introduced by VSDs
* The importance of VSDs in applications such as process control and materials handling gives this title a wider audience than just electrical power engineers

This book gives readers a fundamental understanding of the installation, operation and troubleshooting of VSDs (variable speed drives). Typical practical applications of VSDs in process control and materials handling, such as those for pumping, ventilation, conveyers, compressors and hoists are covered in detail. Readers will learn the basic setup of parameters, control wiring and safety precautions in installing a VSD. The various drive features such as operating modes, braking types, automatic restart and many others will be discussed in detail. Readers will learn the four basic requirements for a VSD to function properly with emphasis on typical controller faults, their causes and how they can be repaired. The concluding section of the book gives you the fundamental tools in troubleshooting VSDs confidently and effectively. Even though the focus of the book is on the direct application of this technology, readers will also gain a thorough understanding of the problems that can be introduced by VSDs - such as harmonics, electrostatic discharge and EMC/EMI problems.

I am a mines and SCR rig electrician. I have actually attended Malcolms seminar related to the subject matter and, in fact, i have 3 copies of the book; that's how often i use it.

The information will open up the modern world of AC drives for the novice. For those applying the technology in the field such as, in mines, i thoroughly recommend it.

There are useful appendices in areas that compliment the knowledge required in heavy industry (the Gray scale in rotary encoders) areas of expertise that we must know and i can assure you that i have not been able to find that information anywhere else, or so tactfully presented.

I have assisted electrical engineers to understand the subject through the knowledge that this manual provides the technician.

Malcolm is definitely "the man" and his book is an absolute essential item - the bible - for heavy industrial electricians.

I refinanced my house twice, sold my daughter into white slavery and took several jobs as a medical guinea pig to afford this book. If I told you even a tenth of what I have learned so far from it, your brain would literally dissolve. I have since learned the secrets of telekinesis, complete appetite control, and the ability to breathe underwater. Highly recommended.

To my opinion gives this book a clear and understandable overview of variable drives and emphasises the things which are important. After red this book one get not only a good overview of variable drives, but also one is able to give the drives the wright place belong other drive issues

Who knew that reading one book could be the equivalent of getting an Electrical Engineering Degree!!! Of course its 41x10^3 dollars, that's about how much a degree cost these days! Of course they should add the disclaimer that it does not come with 4 years of booze, college chicks, and pot. Well, it is just a book.

When I bought my Kindle I had a hard time getting the wife to buy off on a $400 e-book reader. It really ticked me off, so wait till she sees the bill for the $41,000 book I just bought.

Overall, the book is well worth the money. I am meeting up with Lex Luthor for drinks at the Palms to discuss Chapter 14 and our plans to use a Variable Speed Drive to drill to the earth's core to release millions of cubic feet of noxious gases into the atmosphere to blackmail the US into paying us millions...I mean billions of dollars.

IT PAYS FOR ITSELF!!!!

Like Theodore, I did everything possible to afford this book. When selling my plasma led me nowhere, I was forced to become a drug mule :(

Eventually I downloaded it on my Kindle, and was rather disappointed. I am not able to melt things with my eyes, but the telekinesis powers that Theodore mentioned were nowhere to be found. I then noticed my book did not fully download, and that I was missing that chapter. Mega bummer.
