Modern drive technology is characterized by the increased integration of electrical and mechanical components into drive systems. New and improved drive capabilities can be achieved through the use of compact power electronics, innovative motor concepts, optimized mechanical components, new materials, and high-performance communication technology. This book lists the main concepts in glossary format and provides brief explanations to facilitate a better understanding of these drives. However since there is more to an electrical drive that just the electric motor, it also touches on areas such as measurement systems, power electronics, gearboxes, controllers, and components for transmitting power.
