Electrical and Electronic Principles and Technology, Third Edition

Buy
An introductory textbook for students of electronics and electrical engineering

* New colour layout helps navigation and highlights key learning points, formulae and exercises
* 400 worked problems and over 1,300 questions, all with answers
* Fully up to date with the 2007 BTEC National specification

In this book John Bird introduces electrical principles and technology through examples rather than theory - enabling students to develop a sound understanding of the principles needed by technicians in fields such as electrical engineering, electronics and telecommunications. No previous background in engineering is assumed, making this an ideal text for vocational courses at Level 2 and 3, foundation degree and introductory courses for undergraduates.

The book presents a logical topic progression rather than following the structure of a particular syllabus. However, the coverage of this new edition has been brought fully in line with the electrical and electronics units of the 2007 BTEC National specification. It is also designed to cover the requirements of the BTEC First specifications.

New material in this third edition includes brand new chapters on semiconductor diodes and transistors as well as added sections on batteries, fuel cells and alternative and renewable energies, relative and absolute voltages, self and mutual inductance, and virtual test and measuring instruments.

Support material for tutors is available as a free download at http://textbooks.elsevier.com:
* Instructor's manual with full solutions and suggested marking scheme for all 7 revision tests in the book
* Solutions manual with worked solutions for about 400 of the further problems in the book
* Electronic files for all illustrations in the book

Hickman's Analog and RF Circuits
Hickman's Analog and RF Circuits

I have been writing articles for magazines since the early 1970s, and many of these have been published in Electronics World (founded in 1911 as The Marconigraph but known for most of its life as Wireless World). This is undoubtedly the foremost electronics magazine in the UK, being widely read by professional electronics engineers on the one...
