    I'm working my way through the volumes and chapters of the fantastic e-book.
    I'm really disheartened the see that ch10, ch11 & ch12 in Vol 3 are missing entirely. I'm particularly interested in the motor drives chapters. Does anyone know when they might become available. Where would be a good place to learn more about dc motor drives, inverters and ac motor drives
    thanks,
    Peter

    Hello,

    The AllAboutCircuits eBooks is a work in progress.
    There are a club of volenteers who are writing pieces for it.
    There has to be done a lot of work to get it "published".

    Here are some links from the EDUCYPEDIA on speed control and other subjects:
    http://www.educypedia.be/electronics/powermotor.htm

    Power electronics: Diac Triac Thyristor Motor speed control Power supplies SMPS General overview Power control Power supply topics SPWM

    http://www.educypedia.be/electronics/motorstepdriver.htm

    Motor and generators: Brushless DC motors Motor AC Motor-Synchronous Single phase AC motors Generators: AC and DC Motor DC Robot Stepper motor Generator: asynchronous Motor overview Servomotor Stepper motor drivers

    Greetings,
    Bertus

    Thank you Bertus.

    Tony R. Kuphaldt wrote most of it (as in vast majority), which is extrememly impressive. I suspect when this book is actually finished it will become a standard text.

    Oddly enough, Wikipedia is also a good reference if you know the name and type of circuit you're looking for.
