The content is presented in an easy to understand style, so that readers can develop a basic comprehensive understanding of the many parts of complex electrical power systems. The authors describe a broad array of essential characteristics of electrical power systems from power production to its conversion to another form of energy. Each system is broken down into sub systems and equipment that are further explored in the chapters of each unit. Simple mathematical presentations are used with practical applications to provide an easier understanding of basic power system operation. Many illustrations are included to facilitate understanding. This new third edition has been edited throughout to assure its content and illustration clarity, and a new chapter covering controldevises for power control has been added.
