PRLog - Feb. 12, 2013 - BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Most textbooks that deal with the power analysis of electrical engineering power systems focus on generation or distribution systems. Filling a gap in the literature, Modern Power System Analysis, Second Edition introduces readers to electric power systems, with an emphasis on key topics in modern power transmission engineering. Throughout, the book familiarizes readers with concepts and issues relevant to the power utility industry.
A Classroom-Tested Power Engineering Text That Focuses on Power Transmission
Drawing on the author’s industry experience and more than 42 years teaching courses in electrical machines and electric power engineering, this book explains the material clearly and in sufficient detail, supported by extensive numerical examples and illustrations. New terms are defined when they are first introduced, and a wealth of end-of-chapter problems reinforce the information presented in each chapter.
Topics covered include:
Power system planning
Transmission line parameters and the steady-state performance of transmission lines
Disturbance of system components
Symmetrical components and sequence impedances
Analysis of balanced and unbalanced faults—including shunt, series, and simultaneous faults
Transmission line protection
Designed for senior undergraduate and graduate students as a two-semester or condensed one-semester text, this classroom-tested book can also be used for self-study. In addition, the detailed explanations and useful appendices make this updated second edition a handy reference for practicing power engineers in the electrical power utility industry.
What’s New in This Edition
35 percent new material
Updated and expanded material throughout
Topics on transmission line structure and equipment
Coverage of overhead and underground power transmission
Expanded discussion and examples on power flow and substation design
Extended impedance tables and expanded coverage of per unit systems in the appendices
New appendix containing additional solved problems using MATLAB®
New glossary of modern power system analysis terminology
"This book offers a comprehensive coverage of all classical topics in power system analysis such as basic concepts of three AC circuits and per unit calculation, transmission line, power flow analysis, fault analysis and protection system etc. This second edition is a modern update of the book, which features clear and easy-to-understand text ideally suited for power system analysis courses at senior undergraduate level and graduate level."
