Diagnosis and Fault Tolerance of Electrical Machines, Power Electronics and Drives describes techniques for fault analysis, diagnostics, condition monitoring methods, reconfiguration, remedial operating strategies and fault tolerance in electrical machines, power electronics and variable speed drives. It is a must-read for researchers in academia and industry, as well as for manufacturers and advanced students involved with electrical machines.
Electrical machines and drives, and their associated power electronics, are a key part of an industrialized society. Reliability is a major challenge in systems design, operation, and maintenance of these technologies. Unreliable systems drive up costs, so diagnostics and fault tolerance become important to help maintain the system and estimate its operational lifetime.
Antonio J. Marques Cardoso is Full Professor at the Department of Electromechanical Engineering of the University of Beira Interior (UBI) and Director of CISE - Electromechatronic Systems Research Centre, Portugal. He is the author of around 500 papers published in technical journals and conference proceedings. He was Guest Editor of IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications Special Issue on Fault Diagnosis of Electric Machines, Power Electronics and Drives and is Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics, and also for International Journal of Systems Assurance Engineering and Management.
This book is ideal for researchers and professionals working with electrical machines, power electronics and drives, particularly those specializing in the design, development and application of electrical machines and power electronics.
