Overview

Electrical and Electronic Systems is written in a way that makes it accessible for all its potential readers. Students specialising in electronic or electrical engineering will find material that is presented in a way that is easy to absorb, providing an excellent grounding for further study. For those intending to specialise in other areas of engineering or science, the book provides a good grounding in the basics, and progresses into detail only as far as it is appropriate for their needs.The key to the book’s accessibility is the “top down” approach to the subject – the book begins by outlining the uses and characteristics of electrical and electronic systems, before looking in detail at their analysis. This gives students an insight into why topics are important before they are studied in detail.
