Stallcup’s® Generator, Transformer, Motor and Compressor, 2011 Edition has been fully revised to bring electrical personnel up-to-code on all types of rotating machinery.  The new 2011 Edition expertly explains how to select, operate, construct, and maintain the most common types of rotating machinery correctly and efficiently. Divided into three comprehensive parts, Stallcup’s® introduces users to the theory, methods, and applications of generators (Part 1), transformers (Part 2), and motors, controllers and compressors (Part 3). This text fully explains how these devises work and which Code rules apply. In keeping with the previous edition, the text features numerous illustrations to enhance comprehension, clarify complex concepts, and offer hands-on assistance for easier compliance with today’s requirements.

Additional Topics Covered in the 2011 Edition:

    Reviews generator location, nameplate markings, overcurrent protection, ampacity of conductors, protection of live parts, plus emergency system and hospital generators
    Discusses motor and compressor design and code letters, starting methods, overcurrent protection, and overload protection
    Examines transformer windings, wye-connected transformers, delta-connected transformers, installation, vaults, sizing, troubleshooting
