About Of The Book :

The study of electrical engineering involves the analysis of the energy transfer from one form to another or from one point to another. So before beginning the actual study of electrical engineering, it is necessary to discuss the fundamental ideas about the basic elements of electrical engineering like electromotive force, current, resistance, etc. Electricity is related to a number of other types of systems like mechanical, thermal, etc. There involves the transfer of different forms of energy into electrical or otherwise. To analyze such transfer, it is necessary to revise the S.I. units of measurement of different quantities like work, power, energy, etc. in various systems.
This chapter explains the concept of basic electrical parameters along with the effect of temperature on resistance. The chapter involves a discussion of the characteristics of series and parallel circuits. In the end, the chapter includes the revision of units in different systems and their interrelations.
