Electrical science

Electric power books are divided into few sections, so it is easy for power engineers to find appropriate book, guide or information related to electrical science, power engineering, automation, industry etc.

Electrical Engineering Books And Guides
Electrical Engineering Books And Guides

During years, well known manufacturers like ABB, Siemens, Schneider Electric, Danfoss and others were releasing technical guides, books and publications written by their expirienced engineers, and now they can be found all in one place, at EEP.

  1. Electrical engineering (general) guides
  2. Power substation guides
  3. Control and protection (relays) guides
  4. Industry automation (PLC, SCADA, VSD etc.) guides
  5. Schneider Electric Cahier Techniques (CTs)
  6. ABB drives guides
  7. ABB protection (relaying) books
  8. Siemens – Basics of energy and automation guides
  9. Alternative energy guides (solar, wind, biomass, hydropower etc.)
  10. Electrical design documentation

Every book, guide and document is free to download.

Electrical Engineering Books

Cahiers Techniques is a collection of documents intended for engineers and technicians, people in the industry who are looking for more in-depth information in order to complement that given in product catalogues. Furthermore, “Cahiers Techniques” are often considered as helpful “tools” for training courses.

They provide knowledge on new technical and technological developments in the electrotechnical field and electronics. They also provide better understanding of various phenomena observed in electrical installations, systems and equipment.

On this page you can find many good books related to elecricity, industry, automation and telecommunications.

The Heating Book By Danfoss

8 steps to control of heating systems

Heating a home has always been and still is a basic human requirement. This requirement enables us to live and work in locations with low temperature. In the beginning the solutions were simple. An open fire on the floor of a tent or a simple hut, made it possible to survive in a hostile environment.

As civilisation developed there was migration from the countryside to the towns and cities and into bigger and bigger houses, creating a requirement for more elborate heating systems. This requirement stimulated technical development, but also created a problem, namely the use of a finite resource (fossil fuels) with the resulting pollutions from the burned fuels.

Danfoss has released this great heating book in 9 chapters which are available in this section.

Some of chapters in this section:

  • Control of heating systems used in Western Europe starstarstar
  • Secondary systems used in Europe
  • Evaluation of systems and products
  • Instructions for designing district heating systems
  • Instructions for designing heating systems
  • How to select size of products and components
  • etc.

HVAC Guides

Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning is based on inventions and discoveries made by Nikolay Lvov, Michael Faraday, Willis Carrier, Reuben Trane, James Joule, William Rankine, Sadi Carnot, and many others.

The invention of the components of HVAC systems went hand-in-hand with the industrial revolution, and new methods of modernization, higher efficiency, and system control are constantly introduced by companies and inventors all over the world. The three central functions of heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning are interrelated, providing thermal comfort, acceptable indoor air quality, within reasonable installation, operation, and maintenance costs. HVAC systems can provide ventilation, reduce air infiltration, and maintain pressure relationships between spaces.

How air is delivered to, and removed from spaces is known as room air distribution.

Some of the guides in this section:

  • Guide to Combined Heat and Power Systems
  • Hydrodynamics of Pumps
  • Thermodynamics & Statistical Mechanics
  • GeoSource Heat Pump Handbook
  • etc.

The technical guides cover subjects such as the basics of variable-speed drives, dimensioning a drive system, electrical braking, harmonics and AC drives, and bearing currents.

Some of guides in this section:

  • Application Guide, Guide to extruders in AC drives
  • Sustainability guide, Driving energy efficiency worldwide, ABB motors and drives
  • Technical Guide, Direct Torque Control
  • Technical guide, Functional safety
  • Application guide, ABB drives, Using variable speed drives (VSDs) in pump applications
  • etc.

Relay Books

We all know what it is, but nevertheless…

The relay is a well known and widely used component. Applications range from classic panel built control systems to modern inrefaces between control microprocessors and their power circuits or any application where reliable galvanic separation is required between different circuits.

Altough considered to be a relatively simple component, the electromechanical relay and its technology is complex and often misundestood.

Power Substations related books

Maintenance, commisioning…

An electrical substation is a subsidiary station of an electricity  generation, transmission and distribution system where voltage is transformed from high to low or the reverse using transformers.

Electric power may flow through several substations between generating plant and consumer, and may be changed in voltage in several steps.

Alternative Energy Guides

Climate changes forces us to…

Caused by the ongoing climate change, more and more home owners are interested in alternative energies. Renewable energy flows involve natural phenomena such as sunlight, wind, tides and geothermal heat, as the International Energy Agency explains:

Renewable energy is derived from natural processes that are replenished constantly. In its various forms, it derives directly from the sun, or from heat generated deep within the earth. Included in the definition is electricity and heat generated from solar, wind, ocean, hydropower, biomass, geothermal resources, and biofuels and hydrogen derived from renewable resources.
