1. This is a textbook for 3rd year electrical engineering students. Most people who read this book HAVE TO read it becuase it is a required text. The classic captive audience.2. The author does not skip any more steps in his (her?) math derivations than other, similiar books I have had to use. You're a 3rd year EE student: suck it up, kiddo. Break out some printer spew and a #2 pencil; I'm sure you can get from here to there.3. Many authors provide numeric solutions to SOME of the homework problems. ALL OTHER AUTHORS provide numeric answers to DRILL (PRACTICE) problems so that the reader can see if s/he has got the hang of it. THIS AUTHOR did not give answers to ANY of problems, drill or homework, in the book. This limits the effectiveness of the book as a teaching tool. It would be nice if answers to the drill problems could be posted on the internet (Hint, hint.)4. The authors language is adequate for the discussion of the subject matter -- three phase power, transformers, induction motors, etc.5. The book is too damn expensive.
Dr. Bala, the co-author speaks perfect English, I know first hand, and the book is written in proper English as well, though I have seen some very minor gramatical mistakes consistent with the way he speaks. The lay out of the book was planned to best serve an introductory course for power engineering. It is not intended to function as a stand-alone guide. That being said, the book does have example problems, with complete solutions (not just answers). The authors' intent in writing a text with so many problems and few solutions was both for students to learn to derive solutions to problems, and to provide teachers with a broad spectrum of problems covering a variety of conceptual nuances which would be easy for someone understanding the topic to relate to students. In this manner students are forced to ask questions, gain intuition, and a genuine understanding for how to approach problems without relying on methodologies that comprehensive solutions would provide. It is a book not intended for technicians, but for understanding at the engineering level.
I used this book in my Junior year in School. As an EE/Math, this book is pretty good as far as the information goes in the book . This book doesn't overwhelm the reader with extra not required information.The CONCEPTS in this book are very clear as compare to the other two books I used. All what the author needs to do is to provide answers to the drill problems and some of the questions at the end of each chapter.
This book is really good and shows a tons of example that you can follow throught. The only complain is that have not solutions for the exercises.
