Electrical Applications 2 covers the BTEC NII level objectives in Electrical Applications U86/330. To understand the applications, a knowledge of the underlying principles is needed and these are covered briefly in the text. Key topics discussed are: the transmission and distribution of electrical energy; safety and regulations; tariffs and power factor correction; materials and their applications in the electrical industry; transformers; DC machines; illumination; and fuse protection. Included in each chapter are worked examples which should be carefully worked through before progressing to the next section. At the ends of chapters, further problems are provided for consolidation and self-testing; where these have numerical answers, they may be found at the end of the book. In a subject such as this, many problems ask for explanations and descriptions and here the answers must be sought in the text. When dealing with a descriptive question, a good diagram almost always helps to give a clear answer and saves many words of explanation. The book aims to promote this approach by the use of over 170 figures throughout the eight chapters.
