When I was first asked to update the Newnes Electrical Engineer’s Handbook, it seemed a relatively straightforward task. But after studying the reviewer’s comments which had been assembled by the publisher it became clear that a number of changes in emphasis would be worthwhile. It was also evident that in North America, a clearer distinction has to be made between electrical power engineering and electronics. Since
the main target of this book is electrical power equipment, a change of title was agreed and so we now have the Newnes Electrical Power Engineer’s Handbook. At the same time, some areas of the technology continue to advance apace, particularly in the structure and operation of power systems, and in emc and power quality. So some chapters needed a substantial overhaul even though the Newnes Electrical Engineer’s Handbook was published only five years ago. New contributors have been introduced to handle the various updates, partly because of the retirement of former contributors and partly because of change of emphasis. The co-operation of all the contributors during the preparation of material and through the inevitable differences of pace at which the different sections have been completed, is gratefully acknowledged. Every work of this type consumes a vast amount of time, with an inevitable sacrifice of personal and social time. Without the patience and understanding of my wife Gill, the completion of the project would have been much more difficult. Her support in this, as in all our ventures, is lovingly acknowledged. D.F.
