Power Control Circuits Manual, Second Edition (Newnes Circuits Manual Series)
- Publish Date: 1997-01-29
- Binding: Paperback
- Author: R M MARSTON
Electronic power control circuits can be used to control (either manually or automatically), for instance, the brilliance of lamps, the speed of motors, the temperature of heating devices such as electric fires or radiators, or the loudness of audio signals. This control can be achieved using electromechanical switches or relays, or electronic components such as transistors, SRCs, TRIACs, or power ICs.
This book takes an in-depth look at the whole subject of electronic power control, covers everything from basic principles to AC power control data and modern house re-wiring, and presents a vast range of useful circuits and diagrams.
Newnes Circuits Manuals cover a wide range of electronics subjects in an easy-to-read and non-mathematical manner, presenting the reader with many practical applications and circuits. They are specifically written for the practising design engineer, technician, and the experimenter, as well as the electronics students and amateur. The ICs and other devices used in the practical circuits are modestly priced and readily available types, with universally recognised type numbers.
Ray Marston has proved, through hundreds of circuits articles and books, that he is one of the leading circuit designers and writers in the world. He has written extensively for Popular Electronics, Electronics Now, Electronics - The Maplin Magazine, Electronics and Wireless World, Electronics Today International and Electronics Australia, amongst others. Other Circuits Manuals include: Modern CMOS, Audio IC, Modern TTL, Electronic Alarm and Instrumentation and Test Gear Circuits Manuals.
