Generation of Electrical Energy is written primarily for the undergraduate students of electrical engineering while also covering the syllabus of AMIE and act as a refresher for the professionals in the field.
The subject itself is now rejuvenated with important new developments. With this in view, the book covers conventional topics like load curves, steam generation, hydro-generation parallel operation as well as new topics like new sources of energy generation, hydrothermal coordination, static reserve reliability evaluation among others.
This book Useful for Engineering Students.
1. A new chapter on "Power Trading" has been added which will be helpful for reader to understand how to ensure the needed supply of energy and protect from supply shortages by trading of power.
