Electrical Engineer

£9.99

Product description

Edmund Ward. 1963. Leyland, Eric. DJ Condition: very good. Condition: very good. Slight marks on DJ. Signs of wear at edges of DJ. Slight browning and marks on pages. Contains black and white illustrations and a few black and white photographs.

"Eric Leyland describes the whole process by which electricity is generated and distributed, and types of electricity and how it operates. He covers the sources of power - water or steam produced by use of coal, oil, or the newest nuclear reactors - how power stations work, and the control and transmission of power to the grid; and he includes some of the great projects now being undertaken here and abroad, such as the Australian Snowy Mountains hydro-electric scheme. Distinctions between A.C. and D.C. are made clear and so are variations of voltage, current and resistance; and the work of the electrical engineer comes to life in an account of its branches, including the manufacture of electrical equipment." - inside DJ cover
