Electric Motors and/or Maglev Texts

  1. Aug 8, 2009 #1
    I'm trying to learn about electric motors, and I would eventually like to learn about how the maglev trains work beyond the general descriptions. I have found these two books so far:
    https://www.amazon.com/Electric-Mot...sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1249711429&sr=8-2" by Austin Hughes
    https://www.amazon.com/Practical-El..._1_15?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1249711841&sr=8-15" by Irving Gottlieb
    Has anybody read or used these? Does anybody have any other suggestions on how to go about learning this material?

    I know it will be useful to know some electricity and magnetism, but I know where to find that material and have a plan to increase my knowledge in that field. I want some practical knowledge though, and I would eventually like to build my own model maglev type system. Thanks for the help.
