This long-established text is designed to meet the current needs of electrical and electronic engineering students. It retains its comprehensive and clear approach to the fundamental principles of electrical and electronic technology. This ninth edition has been updated and new material added to reflect the need to provide support in the understanding of new advances.

The authors have also taken this opportunity to revise the logical flow of the material and have continued to illustrate the new material with numerical examples, which has long been the excellent tradition of this book. This text is appropriate for all university and college students requiring a comprehensive introduction to electrical and electronic engineering. It is also appropriate as a reference text for engineers and technicians working, not just in this field of electrical engineering but also in the many related fields of engineering where electrical and electronic technology plays a vital role.

Features

" Keeps mathematics to a minimum, covering only the necessary principles

" Contains a wealth of worked examples, demonstrating theory in practice

" Hundreds of end-of-chapter problems test knowledge and allow students to practice solving problems

" 2-colour illustrations and text throughout aid navigation, highlight key sections and enhance understanding in figures

" Highlighted key equations, summaries of formulae and key terms and concepts aid the student in locating most important information and is useful for revision.
