The new edition of POWER SYSTEM ANALYSIS AND DESIGN provides students with an introduction to the basic concepts of power systems along with tools to aid them in applying these skills to real world situations. Physical concepts are highlighted while also giving necessary 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. The authors incorporate new tools and material to aid students with design issues and reflect recent trends in the field.

Features and Benefits

  • Presents present-day, practical applications and new technologies along with ample coverage of the ongoing restructuring of the electric utility industry.
  • Includes PowerWorld Simulator package to extend the fully worked examples into computer implementations of the solution.
  • The text is supported by an ample number of worked examples covering most of the theoretical points raised.
  • Six design projects are included in the text, all of which meet ABET requirements.
