Electrical Power Systems Technology (Third Edition) provides a broad overview of the production, distribution, control, conversion, and measurement of electrical power. The presentation method used in this book will allow the reader to develop an understanding of electrical power systems. The units of the book are organized in a systematic manner, beginning with electrical power production methods. The fundamentals of each major unit of the book are discussed at the beginning of the unit. These fundamentals provide a framework for the information that follows in each unit. The last unit has been expanded to include control devices. This book deals with many important aspects of electrical power, not just with one or two areas. In this way, it will give the reader a better understanding of the total electrical power system—from the production of electricity to its conversion to other forms of energy. Each unit deals with a specific system, such as production, distribution, control, conversion, or measurement. Each system is broken down into subsystems.
The subsystems are then explored in greater detail in the chapters that make up each unit. In order to understand the contents of this book in depth, the reader should have a knowledge of basic electrical fundamentals. The mathematical presentations given are very simple and are used only to show the practical relationships that are important in electrical power system operation. This book is recommended as a textbook for an “electrical power” or “electrical generators and motors” course. It would be a suitable text for vocational-technical schools, community colleges, universities, and, possibly, some technical high school programs. Many illustrations are shown, to make the presentations that are given easier to understand. The content is presented in such a way that any reader should be able to learn a great deal about the operation of electrical power systems.
