|Book Details :|
The structure of an electric power system is very large and complex. Nevertheless, its main components (or subsystems) can be identified as the generation system, transmission system, and distribution system. These three systems are the basis of the electric power industry. Today, there are various textbooks dealing with a broad range of topics in the power system area of electrical engineering. Some of them are considered to be classics. However, they do not particularly concentrate on topics dealing specifically with electric power transmission.
Therefore, this text is unique in that it is specifically written for in-depth study of modern power transmission engineering. This book has evolved from the content of courses given by the author at the California State University, Sacramento; the University of Missouri at Columbia; the University of Oklahoma; and Florida International University.
It has been written for senior-level undergraduate and beginninglevel graduate students, as well as practicing engineers in the electric power utility industry. It can serve as a text for a two-semester course or, by judicious selection, the material in the text can also be condensed to suit a one-semester course. This book has been written especially for students or practicing engineers who want to teach themselves. Basic material has been explained carefully, clearly, and in detail with numerous examples. Each new term is clearly defined when it is introduced.
Special features of the book include ample numerical examples and problems designed to apply the information presented in each chapter. A special effort has been made to familiarize the reader with the vocabulary and symbols used by the industry. The addition of the numerous impedance tables for overhead lines, transformers, and underground cables makes the text self-contained. The text is divided into two parts:
electrical design and analysis and mechanical design and analysis. The electrical design and analysis portion of the book includes topics such as transmission system planning; basic concepts; transmission line parameters and the steady-state performance of transmission lines; disturbance of the normal operating conditions and other problems:
symmetrical components and sequence impedances; in-depth analysis of balanced and unbalanced faults; extensive review of transmission system protection; detailed study of transient overvoltages and insulation coordination; underground cables; and limiting factors for extra-high and ultrahigh-voltage transmission in terms of corona, radio noise, and audible noise.
The mechanical design and analysis portion of the book includes topics such as construction of overhead lines, the factors affecting transmission line route selection, right-of-way; insulator types, conductor vibration, sag and tension analysis, profile and plan of right-of-way, and templates for locating structures. Also included is a review of the methods for allocating transmission line fixed charges among joint users.
The author wishes to express his sincere appreciation to Dr. Dave D. Robb of D. D. Robb and Associates for his encouragement and invaluable suggestions and friendship over the years. The author is also indebted to numerous students who studied portions of the book, at California State University, Sacramento; the University of Missouri at Columbia; and the University of Oklahoma, and made countless contributions and valuable suggestions for improvements. The author is also indebted to his past students Joel Irvine of Pacific Gas & Electric Inc., and Tom Lyons of The Sacramento Municipal Utility District for their kind help.
