The first edition of this single-author, two-book set was published in 2006. Since then, electric energy, “produced” mostly via electric generators, has become one of the foremost activities in our global economy world. The subject of electric generators (Synchronous Generators and Variable Speed Generators as two books) attracted special attention worldwide both from industry and academia in the last decade. Electric generators’ design and control may constitute a new graduate course in universities with electric power programs. Also, in the design and control of electric generators for applications ranging from energy conversion to electric vehicles (transportation) and auxiliary power sources, new knowledge and developments have been published in the last ten years. In the last ten years, in wind generators alone, the installed power has increased from some 40,000 MW to 300,000 MW (in 2014). In view of these developments, we decided to come up with a new edition that • Keeps the structure of the first edition to avoid confusion for users • Keeps the style with many numerical worked-out examples of practical interest, together with more complete case studies • Includes text and number corrections • Adds quite a few new paragraphs in both books, totaling around 100 pages, to illustrate synthetically the progress in the field in the last decade.
