An electrical drive is the electromechanical system that performs adjustable conversion of electrical energy to mechanical energy of the driven machine. This area of knowledge always was in the highlight of inventers and designers of mechanisms, machines, and equipment for transportation, home appliances, textile and paper mills, pumps, compressors and fans, rolling and cement machine tools and robots. The first chapter focuses on the drive fundamentals. Peculiarities of distributed driving mechanisms, elastic sections, and major electrical machines are explained here. In the second chapter, the selection of the driving equipment in accordance with the load features is discussed in conformity with requirements of woodworking, metalworking, chemical, ship-working, flying, domestic or medical applications. In order the machine to perform without excessive overshoot, to settle within adequate time periods, and to have errors, the tuning process is described carefully. This work primarily represents a textbook for college and university-level bachelor, master, and doctoral students. Experienced engineers and researchers are also involved in the target group of the book readers.
