Power Grid Resiliency for Adverse Conditions Hardback
Abi-Samra's practical book on power grid resilience investigates the impact of extreme weather and the effects of climate change.
It explores proven practices for successful restoration on thermal power plants in light of floods, winter storms, hurricanes, heat waves and dry spells and provides an overview of line insulation coordination, stress-strength analysis and tower insulation strength.
The book also covers structural hardening of power systems against various weather conditions, including wind pressure, wood poles and vegetation management.
Using the storm Sandy as a backdrop for different examples, the reader will also be presented with practical implementations to improve future smart grids.
