Overview

Introduce the basic concepts of power systems as well as the tools students need to apply these skills to real world situations with POWER SYSTEM ANALYSIS AND DESIGN, 6E. This new edition highlights physical concepts while also giving necessary attention to mathematical techniques. The authors develop both theory and modeling from simple beginnings so students are prepared to readily extend these principles to new and complex situations. Software tools including PowerWorld® Simulation, and the latest content throughout this edition aid students with design issues while reflecting the most recent trends in the field.

MindTap Instructors Speak on a Streamlined Workflow - Jonathan

Instructor Jonathan Varhola from Wright State University talks about how MindTap helps him streamline his workflow.

"In my opinion, this textbook is the market leader at this level. I have received consistently good feedback from students regarding this book. The set of worked examples in this book remains to this day one of it best selling points. The introduction of the PowerWorld material in the latest editions was a good move. To me this is a mature text; it is free from factual errors and omissions. The examples are plenty and good. I like the examples which are carried throughout a given chapter. It has great worked out examples. It is well-written and appropriately concise."

"The book has a good flow and a good pace. The material is very well written academically."
