I would like this book to talk about electric power. We can talk about power generation, power transmission, and electric motors. This is an area that we still are lacking in here at wikibooks, althogh I think there are a number of stubs and half-books that I can hijack for the purpose. --Whiteknight(talk) (projects) 03:07, 12 June 2006 (UTC)


This book is going to be about electric power generation, Electric power transmission, and Electric motors and power devices.
