This dictionary is the standard work for translators, engineers, and technical writers requiring a comprehensive and reliable compilation of terms from the fields of power generation, transmission and distribution, drive engineering, automation, switchgear and installation engineering, power electronics as well as measurement and test engineering. For this edition, the dictionary has been updated and enlarged by about 40%. In the translation direction English-German, it now contains about 115,000 entries and 156,000 translations.
Rather than a straightforward dictionary of terms, this book gives students a brief introduction to each concept together with short extracts from the work of key thinkers and critics. Each term, concept or keyword and the passages discussing these are glossed and annotated; at the end of each entry a few reflective, practical questions direct the student to consider a particular aspect of the quotations and the concept they address. The book is designed to be used as a dip-in reference book as well as a guide to literary theory for practical classroom use.
