Power System Transients : Theory and Applications, Second Edition, Hardback Book


This new edition covers a wide area from transients in power systems-including the basic theory, analytical calculations, EMTP simulations, computations by numerical electromagnetic analysis methods, and field test results-to electromagnetic disturbances in the field on EMC and control engineering.

Not only does it show how a transient on a single-phase line can be explained from a physical viewpoint, but it then explains how it can be solved analytically by an electric circuit theory.

Approximate formulas, which can be calculated by a pocket calculator, are presented so that a transient can be analytically evaluated by a simple hand calculation.

Since a real power line is three-phase, this book includes a theory that deals with a multi-phase line for practical application.

In addition, methods for tackling a real transient in a power system are introduced.

This new edition contains three completely revised and updated chapters, as well as two new chapters on grounding and numerical methods.
