A clear explanation of the technology for producing and deliveringelectricity
Electric Power Systems explains and illustrates how the electricgrid works in a clear, straightforward style that makes highlytechnical material accessible. It begins with a thorough discussionof the underlying physical concepts of electricity, circuits, andcomplex power that serves as a foundation for more advancedmaterial. Readers are then introduced to the main components ofelectric power systems, including generators, motors and otherappliances, and transmission and distribution equipment such aspower lines, transformers, and circuit breakers. The authorexplains how a whole power system is managed and coordinated,analyzed mathematically, and kept stable and reliable.

Recognizing the economic and environmental implications of electricenergy production and public concern over disruptions of service,this book exposes the challenges of producing and deliveringelectricity to help inform public policy decisions. Its discussionsof complex concepts such as reactive power balance, load flow, andstability analysis, for example, offer deep insight into thecomplexity of electric grid operation and demonstrate how and whyphysics constrains economics and politics.

Although this survival guide includes mathematical equations andformulas, it discusses their meaning in plain English and does notassume any prior familiarity with particular notations or technicaljargon. Additional features include:
* A glossary of symbols, units, abbreviations, and acronyms
* Illustrations that help readers visualize processes and betterunderstand complex concepts
* Detailed analysis of a case study, including a Web reference tothe case, enabling readers to test the consequences of manipulatingvarious parameters

With its clear discussion of how electric grids work, ElectricPower Systems is appropriate for a broad readership ofprofessionals, undergraduate and graduate students, governmentagency managers, environmental advocates, and consumers.
