This comprehensive textbook introduces electrical engineering students and engineers to the most relevant concepts and techniques relating to all dimensions of electrical power system planning, operation and control. With an emphasis on both basics and advanced topics and practical aspects, the topics are substantiated by a number of illustrations and computer programs that reinforce the analytical methods of approaches to operation and control problems of power system engineering.
Besides fundamentals of power systems, the readers can learn about power flow, economic considerations, computer-aided economic load despatch, power system stability, fault analysis, high voltage transmission systems, transient analysis, and much more from this systematic treatment of an exhaustive treatise on power system engineering.
The book is designed to cover courses in Power Systems conducted during third and fourth years of study by senior undergraduate students and to cover courses prescribed for postgraduate students as well.
