Best Electrical Engineering books for Electrical Engineers

The finest electrical engineering books provide a wide range of electrical engineering topics, are simple to read, and include both theoretical and practical applications. On the other hand, boring and difficult-to-understand textbooks are easy to abandon. Too many miss the fundamentals, leaving you irritated and perplexed.

So, in order to assist you to sort through the excellent and bad, we’ve selected the Top 6 Electrical Engineering Books of 2022.

1) Basic Electricity Excellent Value

Topics covered:

Safety, electrical concepts fundamental, batteries, series direct-current circuits, network analysis of direct-current circuits, electrical conductors and wiring techniques, electromagnetism and magnetic circuits, introduction to alternating-current electricity, inductance, capacitance, inductive and capacitive reactance, fundamental alternating-current circuit theory, direct-current generators, direct-current motor magnetic amplifiers.

2) Power System Analysis and Design – Best Power System Engineering Book

J. Duncan Glover, Thomas Overbye, and Mulukutla S. Sarma’s Power System Analysis and Design is an absolute must-have for power system engineers. When it comes to university courses on power system analysis, this book is THE reference resource (note: anything past the third edition is sufficient).

Topics covered:

  • Fundamentals of the power system (complex power, 3 phase power, phasors, etc.)
  • Transformers of power
  • Transmission line characteristics (i.e. ABCD parameters)
  • The flow of power
  • Faults that are symmetrical and unsymmetrical
  • Models of short, medium, and long transmission lines
  • System security

3) Beginner’s Guide to Reading Schematics

Topics include

  • Diagrams such as schematics, block diagrams, and pictorial diagrams
  • Conductors, switches, and cables
  • Capacitors and resistors
  • Diodes, transistors, and logic gates are examples of electronic components.
  • Dividers and reducers of voltage
  • Transformers and inductors
  • Batteries and cells

4) Basic Electrical Engineering

Topics covered:

  • Units (Work, Power, and Energy)
  • D.C. Circuits
  • Series & Parallel A.C. Circuits
  • Magnetism And Electromagnetism
  • Electromagnetic Induction

5) Basic Electricity by Dover Books

Topics covered

  • Network Theorems
  • Electrostatics
  • Capacitance And Capacitors
  • Phasor Algebra
