Electric Circuits and Signals by Nassir H. Sabah




This book is intended for one or two courses on basic electric circuits as well as the “Circuits and Signals” course, CE-CSG, described in the Body of Knowledge of the IEEE/ACM. It differs from other textbooks in its coverage, organization, and presentation, which strongly emphasize fundamentals and stresses creative problem solving. By emphasis on fundamentals I mean:being comprehensive enough to include all the basic material that I believe should be included, giving adequate explanation or justification of assertions or mathematical expressions (within the scope of the book, of course), and helping the student understand the logic of circuit behavior and gain insight into the meaning, significance, and interrelations of the concepts involved. Insight is like an x-ray of the mind, it penetrates to the heart of a matter or problem. The main concepts are explicitly highlighted throughout the book for special emphasis.

Basic Electrical Engineering by V. K. Mehta and Rohit Mehta

Everybody is familiar with the functions that electricity can perform. It can be used for lighting, heating, traction and countless other purposes. The question always arises, “What is electricity”? Several theories about electricity were developed through experiments and by observation of its behaviour. The only theory that has survived over the years to explain the nature of electricity is the Modern Electron theory of matter. This theory has been the result of research work conducted by scientists like Sir William Crooks, J.J. Thomson, Robert A. Millikan, Sir Earnest Rutherford and Neil’s Bohr.

Backup Power Current

Installing a backup generator is an invaluable way to prepare your family for emergencies. The simplest backup power system is a portable gas-powered generator and an extension cord or two. A big benefit of this approach is that you can run a refrigerator and a few work lights during a power outage with a tool that can also be transported to remote job sites or on camping trips when it’s not doing emergency backup duty. This is also the least expensive way to provide some backup power for your home. You can purchase a generator at most home centres and be up and running in a matter of hours. If you take this approach, it is critically important that you make certain any loads being run by your generator are disconnected from the utility power source.
