A Study of the Induction Motor


    THE induction motor is one of the most useful mechanical slaves that man has ever invented. It is deserving, therefore, of the most careful study, and engineers will welcome a good exposition of the theory. They will find it in this book. Dr. Chapman was the designer of alternating current machinery to Messrs. Greenwood and Battey of Leeds. He was afterwards senior lecturer and superintendent of the testing department at Faraday House, London. He is now an inspector of technical colleges for the Board of Education. His experience therefore qualifies him in every way for writing a treatise on electric motors, and in particular of the induction motor, of which he has always made a special study.
