Seven faculty members across different departments contributed to this process. Participating departments included: electrical engineering, chemical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, and the education division of the cognitive and learning science department. The survey outcomes were analyzed to fine tune different curriculum options for this course for different engineering disciplines. Then, those options were integrated to create the final draft of the curriculum.

The survey outcomes were analyzed to fine tune different curriculum options for this course for different engineering disciplines, and then used as a layout to create a new textbook. Application-based examples: A large number of application-based examples selected from different engineering fields are included in each chapter. They aim to bridge EE and diverse non-EE areas. PSpice lectures, examples, and problems: The text offers a distributed approach for learning PSpice. Chapter 2 provides an initial PSpice tutorial, and new skills are added in Chapters 3 - This part includes lectures that teach students how to use PSpice and can be considered as an embedded PC-based lab for the course.
PSpice-specific examples and end-of-chapter PSpice problems help students better understand the process of building a circuit and getting the desired results. Innovative chapters: Based on a nationwide survey, the topics in these chapters have been highlighted by many professionals as important for this course.
Some topics include: Chapter 1-Case Study uses real life mechanical, chemical, and civil engineering scenarios to present the applications of electrical engineering and better motivate students in their chosen fields of study. These case studies are reintroduced as topics are covered later in the book. Power Coverage-Chapters 9, 12, Based on the nationwide survey, and motivated by concerns about global warming and the need for clean energy, industry respondents requested a more thorough treatment of power.
Chapter 9 introduces the concept of three phase systems, transmission lines, their equivalent circuits, and power transfer.
Chapter 12 studies another important topic of energy transfer - transformers. Chapter 13 studies the topic of motors and generators and introduces many applications of both.
Chapter Electrical Safety discusses interesting electric safety topics useful in the daily life of consumers or engineers working in the field.
Examples and sorted end-of-chapter problems: The book features more than examples and end-of-chapter problems solutions included. End-of-chapter problems are sorted to help instructors select basic, average, and difficult problems. A complete solutions manual: A complete solution for all problems is available to download for all adopting professors. Table of Contents.
