Preface of Power System Analysis and Design 6th Edition PDF Book

The objective of this Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition book is to present methods of power system analysis and design, particularly with the aid of a personal computer, in sufficient depth to give the student the basic theory at the undergraduate level.

The approach is designed to develop students’ thinking processes, enabling them to reach a sound understanding of a broad range of topics related to power system engineering, while motivating their interest in the electrical power industry. (Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition)

Because we believe that fundamental physical concepts underlie creative engineering and form the most valuable and permanent part of engineering education, we highlight physical concepts while giving due attention to mathematical techniques.

Both theory and modeling are developed from simple beginnings so that they can be readily extended to new and complex situations.

New To This Edition

New chapter-opening case studies bring principles to life for students by providing practical, real-world engineering applications for the material discussed in each chapter. Comprehensively revised problem sets ensure students have the practice they need to master critical skills.

Updated Instructor Resources

  • Instructor’s Solutions Manual with solutions to all problems 
  • Comprehensive Test Bank offering additional problems 
  • Annotated Lecture Note PowerPoint Slides 
  • Lesson Plans that detail how to most effectively use this edition 
  • Updated PowerWorld Simulator Software 
  • Student PowerPoint Notes

New design projects in this edition meet the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) requirements to provide valuable hands-on experience and to help ensure students are receiving an education that meets globally recognized accreditation standards.

The latest version of the valuable PowerWorld Simulator (version 19) is included and integrated throughout the text. (Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition)

Key Features

The text presents present-day, practical applications and new technologies along with ample coverage of the ongoing restructuring of the electric utility industry.

It is supported by an ample number of worked examples, including illustrations, covering most of the theoretical points raised. It also includes PowerWorld Simulator version 19 to extend fully worked examples into computer implementations of the solutions.

Version 19 includes power flow, optimal power flow, contingency analysis, short circuit, and transient stability. (Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition)

The text includes a chapter on Power Distribution with the content on Smart Grids. It also includes discussions on the modeling of wind turbines in power flow and transient stability.

Four design projects are included, all of which meet ABET requirements.

PowerWorld Simulator

One of the most challenging aspects of engineering education is giving students an intuitive feel for the systems they are studying.

Engineering systems are, for the most part, complex. While paper-and-pencil exercises can be quite useful for highlighting the fundamentals, they often fall short in imparting the desired intuitive insight.

To help provide this insight, the Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition book uses PowerWorld Simulator version 19 to integrate computer-based examples, problems, and design projects throughout the text.

PowerWorld Simulator was originally developed at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to teach the basics of power systems to nontechnical people involved in the electricity industry, with version 1.0 introduced in June 1994.

The program’s interactive and graphical design made it an immediate hit as an educational tool, but a funny thing happened—its interactive and graphical design also appealed to engineers doing the analysis of real power systems. To meet the needs of a growing group of users, PowerWorld Simulator was commercialized in 1996 by the formation of PowerWorld Corporation.

Thus while retaining its appeal for education, over the years PowerWorld Simulator has evolved into a top-notch analysis package, able to handle power systems of any size. (Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition)

PowerWorld Simulator is now used throughout the power industry, with a range of users encompassing universities, utilities of all sizes, government regulators, power marketers, and consulting firms.

In integrating PowerWorld Simulator with the text, our design philosophy has been to use the software to extend, rather than replace, the fully worked examples provided in previous editions.

Therefore, except when the problem size makes it impractical, each PowerWorld Simulator example includes a fully worked hand solution of the problem along with a PowerWorld Simulator case.

This format allows students to simultaneously see the details of how a problem is solved and computer implementation of the solution. The added benefit from PowerWorld Simulator is its ability to easily extend the example. (Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition)

Through its interactive design, students can quickly vary example parameters and immediately see the impact such changes have on the solution.

By reworking the examples with the new parameters, students get immediate feedback on whether they understand the solution process.

The interactive and visual design of PowerWorld Simulator also makes it an excellent tool for instructors to use for in-class demonstrations. (Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition)

With numerous examples utilizing PowerWorld Simulator instructors can easily demonstrate many of the text topics. Additional PowerWorld Simulator functionality is introduced in the text problems and design projects.


As background for this course, it is assumed that students have had courses in electric network theory (including transient analysis) and ordinary differential equations and have been exposed to linear systems, matrix algebra, and computer programming.

In addition, it would be helpful, but not necessary, to have had an electric machines course. (Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition) 


The text is intended to be fully covered in a two-semester or three-quarter course offered to seniors and first-year graduate students.

The organization of chapters and individual sections is flexible enough to give the instructor sufficient latitude in choosing topics to cover, especially in a one-semester course.

The text is supported by an ample number of worked examples covering most of the theoretical points raised. The many problems to be worked with a calculator as well as problems to be worked using a personal computer have been revised in this edition.

After an introduction to the history of electric power systems along with present and future trends, Chapter 2 orients the students to the terminology and serves as a brief review of fundamentals. The chapter reviews phasor concepts, power, and single-phase as well as three-phase circuits.

Chapters 3 through 5 examine power transformers including the per-unit system, transmission-line parameters, and steady-state operation of transmission lines. (Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition)

Chapter 6 examines power flows including the Newton-Raphson method, power-flow modeling of wind generation, economic dispatch, and optimal power flow. (Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition)

These chapters provide a basic understanding of power systems under balanced three-phase, steady-state, normal operating conditions.

Chapters 7 through 10, which cover symmetrical faults, symmetrical components, unsymmetrical faults, and system protection, come under the general heading of power system short-circuit protection. (Power System Analysis and Design Sixth Edition)

Chapter 11 examines transient stability, which includes the swing equation, the equal-area criterion, and multi-machine stability with modeling of wind-energy systems.
