The author's guiding philosophy in writing this book has three elements: to present basic concepts to readers in a general setting, to show how the principles of electrical engineering apply to specific problems in their own fields, and to remove frustration from the learning process. Emphasizing the basic concepts of the field, this book covers circuit analysis, digital systems, electronics, and electromechanics. This book develops theoretical and experimental skills and experiences in the following areas: basic circuit analysis and measurement, first- and second-order transients, steady-state ac circuits, resonance and frequency response, digital logic circuits, microcontrollers (68HC11), computer-based instrumentation, diode circuits, electronic amplifiers, field-effect and bipolar junction transistors, operational amplifiers, ac and dc machines, and more. For engineers or any other professionals who need a solid foundation in the basics of circuits, digital systems, analog electronics, and electromechanics.

From the Publisher:

Designed specifically for non-majors, this user-friendly text provides a solid foundation in the basics of circuits, electronics (analog and digital), and electromechanics and shows students how the principles apply to interesting, specific, real problems in their own fields.

Tomorrow's Engineers

Finding and developing practical ways to provide the energy needed for modern technical societies on a sustainable basis without disrupting the environment is the most important problem confronting the coming generation of engineers and scientists. Among the proposed energy sources, two of which (solar and wind) are used by the dandelion to grow and disperse its seeds are:

Wind energy
  • Earth-based solar thermal concentrators and photovoltaic solar cells
  • Hydroelectric energy
  • Biomass energy
  • Geothermal energy
  • Gulf stream, wave, and tidal energy
  • Clean coal, in which the C02 is captured and stored ot recycled in a biomass energy plant
  • Systems of nuclear fission reactors combined with hybrid fission/fusion reactors that burn the waste products of the fission reactors
  • Nuclear fusion
  • Hydrogen from water using sunlight aided by a catalyst
  • Enhanced power grids may need to be built to distribute energy from some of these proposed solutions. Conservation must also play a part, possibly including:

    • More efficient power grids
    • Hybrid or electric vehicles
    • Better mass transportation for people
    • Hydrogen-powered fuel-cell vehicles
    • Efficient lighting
    • More/better rail systems in place of trucks and highways
    • Better building design
    • Better intelligence in energy consumption

    Regardless of which solutions ultimately emerge, it is certain that all of the topics discussed in this book will play important roles. For example, see the Practical Application concerning energy-storage systems for electric vehicles starting on page 100.
