Basic Electrical Engineering – C. L. Wadhwa – 4th Edition


In the fourth edition of Basic , two more chapters have been added. Chapter i on DC circuits explains the International of Units and gives clear concepts of electrical circuits, current, voltage or potential, resistance, and . Also, Ohm’s law and Kirchoffs laws have been explained with a of series and parallel circuits using these laws.

Chapter ii on induction explains Faraday’s laws of induction and Lenz’s law. Laws of , dynamically and statically induced e.m.f.’s have also been explained. Further, concepts of mutual and self-inductances, and hysteresis losses and eddy current losses have been discussed.

Under AC circuits, in chapter 1, the concepts of leakage flux, fringing flux, magnetostatic potential, m.m.f. and reluctance have been included. With these additions, the utility of this has been greatly .
