From the Back Cover

Everything you need to use MATLAB and SIMULINK for interactive modeling.

 

With today's personal computers, students have the power to create simulations of electric machinery that allow them to study transient and control performance and test conceptual designs. The outcome of these simulations can reveal behaviors that may not have been readily apparent from the theory and design of the machines.

 

This book and its accompanying website (at www.informit.com/title/0137237855) offer a complete treatment from background theory and models to implementation and verification techniques for simulations and linear analysis of frequently studies machine systems. They include:

  • Three- and single-phase transformers, modeling of core saturation.
  • Three- and single-phase induction machines.
  • Three- and six-phase synchronous machines, wound and permanent magnet field.
  • DC machines: four-quadrant drive operation, starting, speed and torque control.
  • Induction machine drives: volts/hertz control and field-oriented control Synchronous machines in power system studies: multi-machine system, shaft torsionals, excitation control.
  • Synchronous machine drives: self-control and permanent magnet field.

Every chapter of Dynamic Simulation of Electric Machinery includes exercises and projects that can be explored using the accompanying software. A full chapter is devoted to the use of MATLAB and SIMULINK, and an appendix provides a convenient overview of key numerical methods used.

 

Dynamic Simulation of Electric Machinery provides professional engineers and students with a complete toolkit for modeling and analyzing power systems on their desktop computers.

Teaching the dynamics and transients in electric machines for the Msc students is not easy. Analysis becomes more complex by introducing converters and control. What i found excellent in this book is in introducing many projects of simulation by matlab /simulink at the end of every chapter, which is very helpful for professors and for students to understand the dynamics of DC and AC electric machines. The author introduce also very well AC and DC speed drives. Another excellent point is that we got the Matlab/Simulink projects on a CD with the book and we can use it in workshop for our students.

Learning for the first time how an electrical machine works is newer easy, but how hard it is, depends a lot on the form of teaching. Professor Dr. Chi-Mun Ong has done an exelent work on how firstly to model the basic electrical machines (DC-motor, induction motor and synchronous motor) and secondly how to model the motors in a dynamic system. He describes the method of dq0-transformation of currents, voltages etc. in a nice understandable way and uses one of the best tools for constructing and solving coupled dynamic systems. The tool is ofcourse Matlab/simulink. Matlab/simulink is needed to be able to run the examples from the CDROM, but is not needed to understand the text.
I myself might disagree to a degree on how the differential equations themself are solved and I do not like that he uses a base for the angular speed.
There are unfortunately some some errors in the development of the model for the induction motor (i have not checked for the synchronous motor), but they are obvious if the text is used as a base to develop your model.
This is, I must say, nevertheless a very good book

Don't despair if you order a copy of this book and it comes without a CD ROM. The Matlab and Simulnk Programs can be downloaded from Mathworks Web Site. Just look for this book among the long list of Matlab related books listed on Mathwork's Web Site. There you will find a link enabling you to download the Matlab m files and the Simulink mdl files.

I don't think I'd want to try to teach a class from this book. I'd definitely use some material from this for creating labs in Matlab.

I like this book for a reference as a professional. Lots of equations, lots of pictures, lots of functional block diagrams to knit the equations together. However, this book is dedicated to machines, not power systems. Generally for power systems you use a canned model of a generator or motor. This book is helpful for understanding the underlying model, but is not targeted to power SYSTEM simulation.(such as one would do with PSS/E or PowerFactory, or PSCAD). Still I consider it a useful addition to my library when I have to go back and understand the underlying details of the machine.

To the guy who gave this one star because he didn't get the disk with the book....I found the code on the mathworks website and downloaded it (30 seconds elapsed time from the point I said "I know its out there somewhere...")

I bought the book and when I received it I found out out that it is not an original book. It is a good quality photocopy. Some people make a photocopy of books and try to sell it as new books. The orginal book comes with a CD. on This photocopied book , they did copy the CD icon on the top left corner of the front cover. On the front cover of The orginal book they mentione that there is a CD that comes with the book.

This is a book about how to simulate machines by using Matlab and Simulink. So it is very crucial that the book should contain a CD-ROM, which gives all the codes of the examples and projects illustrated in the book.

Otherwise it is impossible to use this book properly. Therefore I specially check this point before I order this book, which it does have a CD-ROM in the appendix B of this book. However when I received the book from Amazon, there is no CD-ROM attached to the book which makes it hard for me to use this book. I learned one customer got the same problem before I ordered; but I never thought it would happen again to me. I have contacted Amazon to request a CD-ROM for this book. I hope that I can receive the CD-ROM for this book as soon as possible.

Thanks
