Dynamic Simulations of Electric Machinery: Using MATLAB/SIMULINK
Product Author Bios
DR. CHEE-MUN ONG is a professor of Electrical Engineering at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.
Electrical engineers can significantly improve the way they design power components and systems using the PC-based modeling and simulation tools discussed in this book. This book covers the fundamentals of electrical system modeling and simulation, using two of the industry's most popular software packages, MATLAB and SIMULINK. It also shows how to interpret the results and use them in the design process. The book reviews the basics of magnetics and line modeling. It covers a wide range of electrical components and systems, including: transformers, electric machines, three-phase induction machines, synchronous machines, and DC machines. This standalone book with accompanying website (at www.informit.com/title/0137237855) offer a complete treatment from background theory and models to implementation and verification techniques for simulations and linear analysis of frequently studies machine systems.

Excellent procedure to introduce complex transient phenomena,
This review is from: Dynamic Simulations of Electric Machinery: Using MATLAB/SIMULINK (Paperback)Teaching the dynamics and transients in electric machines for the Msc students is not easy. Analysis becomes more complex by introducing converters and control. What i found excellent in this book is in introducing many projects of simulation by matlab /simulink at the end of every chapter, which is very helpful for professors and for students to understand the dynamics of DC and AC electric machines. The author introduce also very well AC and DC speed drives. Another excellent point is that we got the Matlab/Simulink projects on a CD with the book and we can use it in workshop for our students.

Serious challenger to the best book on my shelf,
This review is from: Dynamic Simulations of Electric Machinery: Using MATLAB/SIMULINK (Paperback)Learning for the first time how an electrical machine works is newer easy, but how hard it is, depends a lot on the form of teaching. Professor Dr. Chi-Mun Ong has done an exelent work on how firstly to model the basic electrical machines (DC-motor, induction motor and synchronous motor) and secondly how to model the motors in a dynamic system. He describes the method of dq0-transformation of currents, voltages etc. in a nice understandable way and uses one of the best tools for constructing and solving coupled dynamic systems. The tool is ofcourse Matlab/simulink. Matlab/simulink is needed to be able to run the examples from the CDROM, but is not needed to understand the text.
I myself might disagree to a degree on how the differential equations themself are solved and I do not like that he uses a base for the angular speed.
There are unfortunately some some errors in the development of the model for the induction motor (i have not checked for the synchronous motor), but they are... Read more

A good book for the power system modeling professional,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dynamic Simulations of Electric Machinery: Using MATLAB/SIMULINK (Paperback)I don't think I'd want to try to teach a class from this book. I'd definitely use some material from this for creating labs in Matlab.
I like this book for a reference as a professional. Lots of equations, lots of pictures, lots of functional block diagrams to knit the equations together. However, this book is dedicated to machines, not power systems. Generally for power systems you use a canned model of a generator or motor. This book is helpful for understanding the underlying model, but is not targeted to power SYSTEM simulation.(such as one would do with PSS/E or PowerFactory, or PSCAD). Still I consider it a useful addition to my library when I have to go back and understand the underlying details of the machine.
To the guy who gave this one star because he didn't get the disk with the book....I found the code on the mathworks website and downloaded it (30 seconds elapsed time from the point I said "I know its out there somewhere...")
