Electricity & Controls for HVAC/R

Description:

Sixth Edition
Authors: Stephen L. Herman,
Bennie Sparkman

Now in its sixth edition, ELECTRICITY AND CONTROLS FOR HVAC-R equips readers with the information needed to work effectively with all types of motors and control devices found in the heating and air-conditioning industry.

Prior knowledge of electricity is not required as this book begins with discussion of essential basic electricity and electrical circuits concepts.

Numerous schematic diagrams and step-by-step troubleshooting procedures are included to acquaint readers with all of the different types of circuits commonly encountered in the HVAC-R field

Stephen L. Herman has been both an electrician and teacher for over 20 years. He has authored numerous textbooks on the subjects of electricity and mathematics.

He recently retired from being a lead instructor for Electrical Technology Curriculum at Lee College in Baytown, Texas. Mr. Herman received an Excellence in Education Award by the Haliburton Education Foundation.
 

Features:
  • Many photographs have been replaced and updated along with new line art.
  • Text is updated to the latest technology and reflects the current National Electrical Code® requirements.
  • Text design has been updated to provide ease in navigating chapter material.
  • Unit on atomic structure has been rewritten to reflect the most accepted theories concerning the structure of atoms.
  • The unit devoted to troubleshooting has been expanded to include an example of a step-by-step procedure for determining the problems with a central air conditioning system.
  • COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE: Comprehensive coverage of electric motors includes three-phase motors, squirrel cage induction motors, wound rotor motors, synchronous motors, and more.
  • PRACTICAL EXPLANATIONS: Circuits commonly encountered in the field are explained in a practical, non-mathematical manner.
  • UPDATED UNITS ON LATEST TECHNOLOGIES: New units on brushless DC motors, as well as light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and photodiodes introduce students to the latest technologies in the field.
  • UPDATED UNITS ON INDUSTRY PRACTICES: Units on programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and programming PLCs are thoroughly updated to remain current with industry practices.
  • REQUIREMENTS FOR 2008 NEC® STANDARDS: Requirements for unit installation have been updated to comply with 2008 NEC® standards.
