Product Description

From the Back Cover

Electric power systems are going through a period of dramatic change with the need to reduce environmental impact, provide a secure supply of power to an increasing world population while aging infrastructure and equipment in many established systems needs replacing. Today′s student has to understand both the large amount of plant and equipment that is in use as well as the possibilities offered by new technologies.

Now comprehensively updated and revised, the fifth edition of this classic textbook provides a modern foundation in power systems engineering. The emphasis on practical analysis, modeling and fundamental principles, so successful in previous editions, is retained together with broad coverage of the subject while avoiding complex mathematics. Throughout, the worked examples and computer simulations used to explain concepts and calculation techniques have been modernised, as have all figures.

Features of the fifth edition:

  • Examples of the use of power system simulation programs illustrating fundamental principles
  • Revised chapters on load flow, systems stability and electrical transients
  • Extended coverage of developments in HVDC including the use of voltage source converters
  • A new chapter on power system economics
  • Examination of substations and Gas Insulated Switchgear
  • Extensive worked examples and end–of–chapter problems to facilitate learning
For instructors and teachers, solutions to the problems set out in the book can be found on the companion website.

Offering enhanced, clear and concise explanation of practical applications, this updated edition will ensure that Electric Power Systems continues to be an invaluable resource for senior undergraduates in electrical engineering.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The printing is sometime a bit poor: on the page you can see the typing on the back, and can be quite annoying.
It's the version for the South Asia countries.
What is good is that it is very handy and light.

Format: Hardcover
The book is a standard undergraduate material which is somewhat surprising due to a large number of shortcomings. It is excellent in terms of selected examples and exercises. It lacks, however a structured presentation of topics, failing to emphasise on important aspects of a topic. The best example of such treatment is 'protection'. In some others it covers unnecessary detail e.g. cables, the expertise of the first Author. I may add, however, that I have not come accross a better book covering the whole subject of Electrical Energy Systems.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOT MINE !!!!! 3 Oct. 1998
By Brad (curelom@snowcrest.net) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I first learned of this book from the "further reading" in Microsoft Encarta and tracked down a copy of the 1987 edition in the public library. I have wanted a copy since then and finaly found one here. The book is primarily aimed at Power Engineering students but is an excellent reference for anybody in the Power business and fits nicely next to "Applied Protective Relaying" and other such books used as industry standards. I recommend you make a place for it on your shelf

Format: Kindle Edition
Amazon. Fix the type. Formulae aren't rendering correctly and this is unacceptable! I will submit a full actual review once this is done and I can read everything.
