Summary and Info
As demonstrated by recent major blackouts, power grids and their associated markets play a vital role in the operation of our society. Understanding how electric generation, transmission, and delivery systems interact and operate is paramount to guaranteeing reliable sources of electricity. Electric Energy Systems offers highly comprehensive and detailed coverage of power systems operations, uniquely integrating technical and economic analyses. The book fully develops classical subjects such as load flow, short-circuit analysis, and economic dispatch within the context of the new deregulated, competitive electricity markets. With contributions from 24 internationally recognized specialists in power engineering, the text also presents a wide range of advanced topics including harmonic load flow, state estimation, and voltage and frequency control as well as electromagnetic transients, fault analysis, and angle stability. A well-needed and updated extension on classical power systems analysis books, Electric Energy Systems provides an in-depth analysis of the most relevant issues affecting the blood-line of our society, the generation and transmission systems for electric energy.
