Books by Sid Antoch
These books are the result of my many years of teaching electronics at the university and technology level. They combine theoretical concepts and circuit simulation with practical experiments. The electric circuits' lab manuals are somewhat traditional, but they include some unique experiments. The control systems, ac and three-phase, and op-amp books are non-traditional, designed to be used for independent study and as course supplements. These are quality books offered at student affordable prices.
These books may be used in college lab courses as lab manuals or as supplements to existing labs. A calculus and Laplace transform based engineering version, and an algebra based technology version are available. Both versions include 3-phase experiments.
* Theoretical concepts, equations, spreadsheet applications and examples.
* Large selection of basic and unique lab experiments.
* Suggested analysis using spreadsheets and simulations.
* Economical, may be used to supplement an existing lab course.
* Simulations, applications. and examples
