About The Book

This comprehensive book with a blend of theory and solved problems on Basic Electrical Engineering has been updated and upgraded in the Second Edition as per the current needs to cater undergraduate students of all branches of engineering and to all those who are appearing in competitive examinations such as AMIE, GATE and graduate IETE.

The text provides a lucid yet exhaustive exposition of the fundamental concepts, techniques and devices in basic electrical engineering through a series of carefully crafted solved examples, multiple choice (objective type) questions and review questions. The book covers, in general, three major areas: electric circuit theory, electric machines, and measurement and instrumentation systems.
