Organization of this Book
This book is a happy marriage of two fields of research – chaology and electrical engineering. Chaology has always been tagged as an abstract field that involves intensive mathematics but lacks practical application. On the other hand, electrical engineering has been well recognized as a practical field that usually transforms innovative technology into commercial products, thus improving our living standards. Chaos in electric drive systems is a representative of this marriage, enabling chaos to exhibit realistic behavior and provide a practical application. It also fuels electrical engineering with a new breed of technology.
The book covers the multidisciplinary aspects of chaos and electric drive systems, and is written for a wide range of readers, including students, researchers, and engineers. It is organized into four parts:
- Part I presents an introduction to the book. It contains Chapters 1 and 2, which will provide an overview of chaos with an emphasis on electric drive systems. These chapters will also introduce the basic theory of chaos and a fundamental knowledge of electric drive systems.
- Part II is a core section of the book – namely, how to analyze chaos in various electric drive systems. It consists of Chapters 3, 4, and 5, which will discuss the analysis of chaos in DC drive systems, AC drive systems, and switched reluctance drive systems.
- Part III is another core section which explains how chaos in various electric drive systems can ...
