Electric Motors and Drives is intended for non-specialist users of electric motors and drives, filling the gap between maths- and theory-based academic textbooks and the more prosaic 'handbooks', which provide useful detail but little opportunity for the development of real insight and understanding. The book explores all of the widely-used modern types of motor and drive, including conventional and brushless D.C., induction motors and servo drives, providing readers with the knowledge to select the right technology for a given job.
The third edition includes additional diagrams and worked examples throughout. New topics include digital interfacing and control of drives, direct torque control of induction motors and current-fed operation in DC drives. The material on brushless servomotors has also been expanded.
Austin Hughes' approach, using a minimum of maths, has established Electric Motors and Drives as a leading guide for electrical engineers and mechanical engineers, and the key to a complex subject for a wider readership, including technicians, managers and students.
* Acquire essential practical knowledge of motors and drives, with a minimum of maths and theory
* Updated material on the latest and most widely-used modern motors and drives
* New edition includes additional diagrams and worked examples throughout

I'm a mechanical engineer without a lot of knowledge of electric motor design, although I have used them on various projects. By C. Greg Freeman
That said, this book, with the aid of clear diagrams and text, is doing an excellent job of showing me the basics of electric motors from the root of the theory. Although I haven't finished this book yet, I have thumbed through the remainder and the content does not drop off.
One of the highlights was a basic explanation of a thyristor, which I know now to be a relatively simple circuit element, but wasn't explained well enough in my past to realize what it did and why it was used. This was covered in the chapter that introduces basic control circuits.
Readers will need to have some basis circuit and physical understanding to enable a less challenging read. I wish I had discovered this book earlier as it would have made certain tasks a lot simpler in my professional past. I hadn't found another book that so clearly explained electric motors.
This book is informative and good. But if author started with the overall introduction blocks/charts first, then deep down for each, then reader would not feel lost or overwhelm. Hope next edition will be written in a fashion that is good for all experience-level readers! Thanks! By Tom Tran
