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.
Nearly all industrial processes require objects to be moved,
manipulated or subjected to some sort of force. Such movements and
manipulations are frequently accomplished by means of devices
driven by liquids (hydraulics) or air (pneumatics), the subject of
this book. Hydraulics and Pneumatics is written by a practicing
process control engineer as a guide to the successful operation of
hydraulic and pneumatic systems for all engineers and technicians
working with them. Keeping mathematics and theory to a minimum,
this practical guide is thorough but accessible to technicians
without an advanced engineering background, and offers clear,
complete coverage of the latest pumps, valves and other hydraulic
and pneumatic equipment Designed to serve as an introduction to
those who are training and a day-to-day reference for use on the
job, the book also offers an essential section on industrial safety
and compliance with regulation.
This market leading classic is a true comprehensive on-the-job reference, covering all aspects of getting electricity from the source to user via the power grid. Electric power transmission and distribution is a huge sector, and engineers require the real world guidance of this book in order to upgrade networks to handle smart and renewable sources of power. This new edition covers renewable and distributed energy developments, international regulatory compliance issues with coverage of IEC standards, and new key conversions to US based standards and terminologies
Utilising examples from real-life systems and challenges, this book clearly and succinctly outlines fundamental knowledge requirements for working in this area. Written by engineers for engineers, theory is tied to current best-practice, and new chapters cover hot topics including DC Transmission, Smart Networks and bringing renewable sources into the grid. Particularly useful for power engineers starting out on their career, this new edition ensures Bayliss remains an essential tool of the trade for all engineers, technicians, managers and planners involved in electricity supply and industrial electricity usage.
Praise for this edition:
The challenges today for those undertaking transmission and distribution system new build projects, existing system extensions, or refurbishment and life extension of older equipment, are as great as ever Leading, as I do, the transmission and distribution business of international and well recognised engineering consultancy Mott MacDonald, I see this book as being useful to clients and contractors as well as others such as industry regulators, environmentalists, and government officials. This book enables those in the field of transmission and distribution electrical engineering to have a well founded understanding of the key principles, the methodologies and current best practice.

exercises and projects, including a major new revision assignment.
In this new edition of his widely-used Handbook, Frank Watts, widely recognized for his significant contributions to engineering change control processes, provides a thoroughly practical guide to the implementation and improvement of Engineering Documentation Control (EDC), Product Lifecycle Management and Product Configuration Management (CM). Successful and error-free implementation of EDC/CM is critical to world-class manufacturing. Huge amounts of time are wasted in most product manufacturing environments over EDC/CM issues such as interchangeability, document release and change control - resulting in faults, product release delays and overspends.
The book is packed with specific methods that can be applied quickly and accurately to almost any industry and any product to control documentation, request changes to the product, implement changes and develop bills of material.
The result is a powerful communications bridge between the engineering function and the rest of the world that makes rapid changes in products and documentation possible. With the help of the simple techniques in the handbook, companies can gain and hold their competitive advantages in a world that demands flexibility and quick reflexes - and has no sympathy for delays.
The new edition sets EDC/CM in the context of Product Lifecycle
Management (PLM), providing guidance on choosing, purchasing and
implementing PLM software systems. Watts guides the reader to
harness these tools and techniques for business objectives
including Process Improvement and time-to-market.
Strategic emphasis shows how processes may be integrated and tears down the wall between Engineering and Operations

structures built in rock. These structures encompass building
foundations, dams, slopes, shafts, tunnels, caverns, hydroelectric
schemes, mines, radioactive waste repositories and geothermal
energy projects: in short, any structure built on or in a rock
mass. Despite the variety of projects that use rock engineering,
the principles remain the same. Engineering Rock Mechanics clearly
and systematically explains the key principles behind rock
Wind powered generation is the fastest growing energy source in the
United States due to a combination of economic incentives, public
preference for renewable energy as expressed in government
policies, competitive costs, and the need to address global
warming. The economic consequences of the relative variability and
lower predictability of wind generation are not easily captured in
standard economic analyses performed by utility planners. This book
provides utility analysts and regulators a guide to analyzing the
value of wind generation in the context of modern power systems.

Underground facilities, such as tunnels, sewer, water and gas networks form the backbone of the economic life of the modern city. In densely populated areas where the demands for transportation and services are rapidly increasing and the construction of new roads and railways are prohibited, the construction of a tunnel might be the only alternative. Brief and readable, this reference is based on a combined 75 years of field experience and places emphasis is on simple practical rules for designing and planning, underground infrastructures. The books begins with a clear and rigorous exposition of the classification of underground space, important considerations such as geological and engineering and underground planning. This is followed by self-contained chapters concerning applications for underground water storage, underground car parks, underground metros & road tunnels and underground storage of crude oil, lpg and natural gas. The book has 15 chapters covering various usage of underground space. There are about 135 figures and tables. The book contains about 20 case histories/examples.

Pressure vessels are closed containers designed to hold gases or
liquids at a pressure substantially different from the ambient
pressure. They have a variety of applications in industry,
including in oil refineries, nuclear reactors, vehicle airbrake
reservoirs, and more. The pressure differential with such vessels
is dangerous, and due to the risk of accident and fatality around
their use, the design, manufacture, operation and inspection of
pressure vessels is regulated by engineering authorities and guided
by legal codes and standards. "Pressure Vessel Design Manual" is a
solutions-focused guide to the many problems and technical
challenges involved in the design of pressure vessels to match
stringent standards and codes. It brings together otherwise
scattered information and explanations into one easy-to-use
resource to minimize research and take readers from problem to
solution in the most direct manner possible.
