Navy Electricity and Electronics Training Series (NEETS)
These are nice Mini Reference Books that can build the Learning of EE students. Some interesting booklets - Circuit Protection, Control, and Measurement; Intro. to Wave-Generation and Wave-Shaping; Microelectronics and Test Equipment.
Communications students see Wave Propagation Transmission Lines, and Antennas; Microwave Principles and Fiber Optics. Technician's Handbook and Test Methods and Practices are a must read.
Electronic and Computer Engineering
Here you can find some free books in PDF format and also Books with sample chapters, you can Review and Buy if you like.
Some of the Books on Embedded Systems and Communications are quite good and even the sample chapters will bring an appetite to study the subject and buy the Book.
Portal:Electronics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This is the place to start in wikipedia. It has a summary of the various content areas in wiki. A Selected design, Consumer showcase, Selected article and all the other bookmarks for the electronics enthusiast, student, professional.

Power Electronics & Solar Energy
The power to Homes can be distributed by two types of phase lines (live), a common neutral and the usual earth. High Phase is for Heaters and Motors and some lighting too. This phase can be shut down on power failure, load management or over use. The other is the Green Energy line, a low current phase which never fails! It is used only for lighting and small and light electronic appliances. It is a limited energy line.
"Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services."
That means, so much kWhr for a month, beyond which the line will trip off for the month. This Green Line is augmented by solar, wind or tidal electricity. That way this Green Line is Uninterrupted, but Energy Limited. This will bring a sense of responsibility on the consumer, who will plan the usage of his Green Power Line carefully.
The other High Phase raw line can go off due to Black-out and Brown-outs, when there is a shut down or load balancing. This can also be energy limited at a higher threshold, depending on the number of people in the small business or home. Big Companies have their own Mini Power stations to manage the Power problems, Here also a Green Line can be provided in addition to the mini power stations.
The sensible and frugal, energy consumer can depend on his Green Line to manage his office or home, with no interruption of power. All Home users, Commercial Establishments, Factories and Companies have to become responsible, frugal and austere in the consumption of both electricity and fossil fuels. This not only saves the costs for the company, but the society (read customers) which is the environment they depend on, is also sustained.
Happy Healthy People means more Customers/Consumers, that implies Economic Growth and a Vibrant/Resilient Stock Market.
Power Electronics shows the way - Power Electronic Circuits.

The objective of this textbook is to develop the RF circuit design aspects in such a way that the need of transmission line principles is made clear without adopting an electromagnetic field approach. Therefore, no EM background is necessary beyond a first year undergraduate physics course in fields and waves as provided by most colleges and universities. Students equipped with the knowledge of basic circuit theory and/or an exposure to microelectronics can use this book and cover the entire spectrum from the basic principles of transmission .
This practical and comprehensive book introduces RF circuit design fundamentals while emphasizing a circuit-based approach.
Covers a number of important topics, including RF Amplifier Designs; Matching Networks; Scattering parameters; Smith Chart; Oscillators and Mixers; common filter types; the high-frequency behavior of common circuit components; the theory of distributed parameters through a discussion on Transmission Lines; and active/passive RF circuits. It also provides features to make the material easier to digest, including self-contained chapters that require only simple mathematical skills (calculus) and examples that are strategically dispersed throughout the chapter to clarify and explain the theoretical developments.
