• Emphasizes the practical application of the technology
• Includes extensive use of graphics and photographs to visually convey the book’s concepts
• Provides applicable IEEE industry standards in each chapter
• Is written by industry experts who have an average of 25 to 30 years of industry experience
• Presents a new chapter addressing the key role of the substation in Smart Grids
Editor John McDonald and this very impressive group of contributors cover all aspects of substations, from the initial concept through design, automation, and operation. The book’s chapters—which delve into physical and cyber-security, commissioning, and energy storage—are written as tutorials and provide references for further reading and study. As with the other volumes in the Electric Power Engineering Handbook series, this book supplies a high level of detail and, more importantly, a tutorial style of writing and use of photographs and graphics to help the reader understand the material. Several chapter authors are members of the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Substations Committee and are the actual experts who are developing the standards that govern all aspects of substations. As a result, this book contains the most recent technological developments in industry practice and standards.
