Principles and Applications of Electrical Engineering 6th International Edition
Giorgio Rizzoni and James Kearns 6th edition provides a solid overview of the electrical engineering discipline that is especially geared toward the many non-electrical engineering students who take this course. The hallmark feature of the text is its liberal use of practical applications to illustrate important principles. The applications come from every field of engineering and feature exciting technologies such as Ohio State’s world-record setting electric car. The appeal to non-EE’s is further heightened by such special features as the book’s Focus on Measurement sections, Focus on Methodology sections, and Make the Connection sidebars. McGraw-Hill is also proud to offer Connect with the sixth edition of Rizzoni and Kearns, Principles and Applications of Electrical Engineering. 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 your class time is more engaging and effective. Rizzoni and Kearns Principles and Applications of Electrical Engineering, sixth edition, includes the power of McGraw-Hill’s LearnSmart – a proven adaptive learning program that helps students learn faster, study more efficiently, and retain more knowledge for greater success. LearnSmart is included in ConnectPlus.
About the Author
Giorgio Rizzoni teaches at the Ohio State University.
The authors present the background, notation, and nomenclature essential for students to understand the various and independent technical approaches, that exist in the field of mechanism, kinematics, and dynamics. Coverage of all analysis and development methods is balanced, with the use of both analytic and graphic tools. This text is ideal for undergraduate students of mechanical engineering.
Stutzman’s 3rd edition of Antenna Theory and Design provides a more pedagogical approach with a greater emphasis on computational methods. New features include additional modern material to make the text more exciting and relevant to practicing engineers; new chapters on systems, low-profile elements and base station antennas; organizational changes to improve understanding; more details to selected important topics such as microstrip antennas and arrays; and expanded measurements topic.
The ultimate practical resource for today’s RF system design professionals Radio frequency components and circuits form the backbone of today’s mobile and satellite communications networks. Consequently, both practicing and aspiring industry professionals need to be able to solve ever more complex problems of RF design. Blending theoretical rigor with a wealth of practical expertise, Practical RF System Design addresses a variety of complex, real-world problems that system engineers are likely to encounter in today’s burgeoning communications industry with solutions that are not easily available in the existing literature. The author, an expert in the field of RF module and system design, provides powerful techniques for analyzing real RF systems, with emphasis on some that are currently not well understood. Combining theoretical results and models with examples, he challenges readers to address such practical issues as: How standing wave ratio affects system gain How noise on a local oscillator will affect receiver noise figure and desensitization How to determine the dynamic range of a cascade from module specifications How phase noise affects system performance and where it comes from How intermodulation products (IMs) predictably change with signal amplitude, and why they sometimes change differently An essential resource for today’s RF system engineers, the text covers important topics in the areas of system noise and nonlinearity, frequency conversion, and phase noise. Along with a wealth of practical examples using MATLAB(r) and Excel, spreadsheets are available for download from an FTP Web site to help readers apply the methods outlined in this important resource.
