Reviews of previous editions:

 

'This excellent book has become a legend over the years. It is, undoubtedly, the most popular and the most useful book on the subject of electrical and electronic technology.' Professor Naren Gupta, Edinburgh Napier University

 

'It is a very good book, which has served us well for 30 years!'  Professor Suleiman M Sharkh, University of Southampton

 

All engineers need to understand the fundamental principles of electrical and electronic technology. This best-selling text provides a clear and accessible introduction to the area, with balanced coverage of electrical, electronic and power engineering.

 

Now in its twelfth edition, Electrical and Electronic Technology is a must-have text for all university and college engineering students requiring a comprehensive introduction to electrical and electronic engineering. It is also appropriate as a reference for practitioners and technicians working in this, or any other engineering discipline.

 

 

Key features:

 

  • Comprehensive introduction to the fundamental principles of electrical technology, including coverage of fibreoptics, induction motors and operational amplifiers
  • Chapter objectives, highlighted key equations, summaries of formulae, and key terms and concepts to help reinforce learning
  • Contains numerous worked examples and end-of-chapter problems to encourage self-directed learning and test understanding
  • New material on transmission line theory, 2-port networks, sensors and actuators, and on renewable generation.

 

Dr Keith Brown lectures in the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering at Heriot-Watt University, where Dr John Hiley also lectured until his retirement in 2013.

 

The late Edward Hughes was Vice Principal and Head of the Engineering Department at Brighton College of Technology. He was a fellow of Heriot-Watt University.

 

The late Ian McKenzie Smith was formerly Deputy Principal, Stow College, Glasgow.
