Tables of Contents
“The Drivepower Atlas is the most comprehensive publication on electric motor efficiency in existence today. It should be required reading for facility engineers, maintenance persons, and engineering students in electrical and mechanical engineering. It will become the reference book on motors for the future.”
Walter E. Johnston PE,
Former President, Association of Energy Engineers,
International Energy Manager of the Year
“The Lighting Atlas is extremely impressive, profoundly complete, unbiased, honest and clear. Reading it is like having a great conversation with someone who, for a change, knows what they are talking about. Even some of the most esoteric (albeit important) of today’s topics are covered with clarity.”
James Robert Benya, PE FIES,
President, Professional Lighting Design Studio
“The Cooling Atlas is right on target—it is unrivaled in terms of relevance, practicality, and simplicity, and is an excellent tool for owners, operators, and designers alike. I expect that it will become the most highly regarded engineering reference document in our office.”
Dennis P. Blake,
Senior Vice President, LaSalle Partners
