This book on Basic Electrical Engineering is envisaged to bridge the gap in the knowledge of day-to-day applications of electrical engineering. It is divided into two parts, with Part- A covering the important topics of circuit analysis and basic instrumentation, and Part-B dealing with the concepts of electrical machines.
Simple presentation of the topics with emphasis on important concepts is the essence of this book.
The book has been designed keeping in view the syllabi requirements of the core engineering course of many universities. With its coverage and treatment, the book is an indispensable textbook for the first/second year students of all engineering branches.
Part I Circuits and Measurements
