Fundamentals of Electric Circuits 6th International Edition
Alexander and Sadiku’s sixth edition of Fundamentals of Electric Circuits continues in the spirit of its successful previous editions, with the objective of presenting circuit analysis in a manner that is clearer, more interesting, and easier to understand than other, more traditional texts. Students are introduced to the sound, six-step problem solving methodology in chapter one, and are consistently made to apply and practice these steps in practice problems and homework problems throughout the text. A balance of theory, worked & extended examples, practice problems, and real-world applications, combined with over 468 new or changed homework problems complete the sixth edition. Robust media offerings, renders this text to be the most comprehensive and student-friendly approach to linear circuit analysis out there. This book retains the “Design a Problem” feature which helps students develop their design skills by having the student develop the question, as well as the solution. There are over 100 “Design a Problem” exercises integrated into problem sets in the book. Also available with the sixth edition is Connect – available January of 2016. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more engaging and effective.
About the Author

He is also the Director of the Center for Research in Electronics and Aerospace Technology (CREATE). From 2002 until 2006 he was Dean of the Fenn College of Engineering. He has held the position of Dean of Engineering at Cleveland State University, California State University, Northridge, and Temple University (acting Dean for six years). He has held the position of Department Chair at Temple University and Tennessee Technological University as well as the position of Stocker Visiting Professor (an Endowed Chair) at Ohio University. He has held faculty status at all of the aforementioned Universities. Matthew N. O. Sadiku received his PhD from Tennessee Technological University, Cookeville. From 1984 to 1988, he was Assistant Professor at Florida Atlantic University, where he did graduate work in Computer Science. From 1988 to 2000, he was at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he became a full Professor. From 2000 to 2002, he was with Lucent/Avaya, Holmdel, New Jersey, as a System Engineer and with Boeing Satellite Systems as a Senior Scientist. He is currently a professor at Prairie View A&M University.
This is an exciting revision of John Kraus’ classic book “Antennas”, which has been long known as the “Antenna Bible”. A new co-author, Ronald Marhefka has joined the author team for this revision. Many new, modern applications have been added – thus the title change to “Antennas with All Applications”. As well, the references have been updated to include recent additions to the literature. Additionally, the book has been reorganized to make it more user-friendly for both students and professionals. The book now covers the fundamentals of various antennas and concepts in the first half of the book and then gets into more details on those same topics later in the book. This allows a one-semester course to just cover the fundamentals if desired, and a professional to focus on advanced topics if he or she wants.
Principles of Electric Machines and Power Electronics, Third Edition combines the traditional areas of electric machinery with the latest in modern control and power electronics. Multi-machine systems, brushless motors, and switched reluctance motors are covered, as well as constant flux and constant current operation of induction motors. Additional material is included on new solid state devices such as Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors and MOS-Controlled Thyristors.
Here’s the sure cure for CIRCUIT PARALYSIS!
Need to learn circuit analysis but experiencing some resistance in your brain waves? No stress! Circuit Analysis Demystified will give you the jolt you need to understand this complex subject–without getting your circuits crossed.
In the first part of the book, you’ll learn the fundamentals such as voltage and current theorems, Thevenin and Norton’s theorems, op amp circuits, capacitance and inductance, and phasor analysis of circuits. Then you’ll move on to more advanced topics including Laplace transforms, three-phase circuits, filters, Bode plots, and characterization of circuit stability. Featuring end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam, this book will have you in a steady state when it comes to circuit analysis in no time at all.
This fast and easy guide offers:
- Numerous figures to illustrate key concepts
- Sample equations with worked solutions
Coverage of Kirchhoff’s laws, the superposition theorem, Millman’s theorem, and delta-wye transformations
- Quizzes at the end of each chapter to reinforce learning
- A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Circuit Analysis Demystified will transform you into a master of this essential engineering subject.
