It was January 6, 1999. The twelfth day of Christmas. Epiphany. Let there be light. There was light. The joy of returning home after a glittering holiday with family in Europe. The spin from the trip opened the way for an optimistic state of mind and body as the new year unfolded. Stroke! Before the day of Epiphany 1999 proceeded into the annals of the past, darkness struck. Reggie and Gil had just gone to bed for the night, lights out. Barely an hour went by when the world changed. Reggie suffered a stroke, "I can't move," she cried. "Gil, help me!" This is a saga of persistance, perseverance, positive attitude, depression, dedication and inseparable love. How these ingredients came together for a powerful potion of energy and tough love. This is how Reggie overwhelmed her stroke with a near one hundred percent recovery.

This concise, complete primer on electric machines is specifically tailored for practicing engineers who require knowledge in this area and for mechanical and electrical engineering students. The authors focus on the similarities between the four main types of electric machines: the synchronous, the transformer, the dc machine, and the induction machine. This new edition moves logically from the presentation of background to problem analysis and problem solving sessions, on to hands-on experience in testing machines. Short examples are included at the end of each section as well as case studies as learning tools.

Wind energy is now the world's fastest growing energy source. In the past 10 years, the global wind energy capacity has increased rapidly. The installed global wind power capacity has grown to 47.317GW from about 3.5GW in 1994. The global wind power industry installed 7976 MW in 2004, an increase in total installed generating capacity of 20%. The phenomenal growth in the wind energy industry can be attributed to the concerns to the environmental issues, and research and development of innovative cost-reducing technologies.

Transformer Engineering

Both these factors have contributed to an increase in short circuit capacity of
networks, making the short circuit duty of transformers more severe. Failure of
transformers due to short circuits is a major concern of transformer users. The
