Excerpt from The Electric Transformation of Power and Its Application by the Electric Motor, Including Electric Railway Construction

The design of this book is to give, in plain, untechnical language, the essential facts in regard to the means by which electricity is employed as an agent for the transformation and transmission of power, and its application to the operation of machinery. These facts comprehend the construction and principles of the electric motor, and its relations to the dynamo, and through it to the steam engine, water-wheel, or other source of power.

The selection of motors as examples of the different kinds of construction has been made from those which have stood the test of practical use, and embody the leading principles A of the best construction; the selections being necessarily limited to a few of the many excellent motors now in use.

Various special applications of the motor have been given, to show its adaptability to the different kinds of mechanical work, and to the difficult conditions often met with in its performance. And the construction and operation of the electric railway, including its motors, cars, and various auxiliary apparatus, have received the full consideration which the importance of the subject demands.

All historical matter has been excluded, and the description of all experimental apparatus, and of apparatus which, though still in use, has been superseded; only the latest and most approved kinds, which have had more or less practical development, being described.
