Electricity transmission and distribution systems carry electricity from suppliers to demand sites. During transmission, materials aging and performance issues can lead to losses of 10% of generated electricity. Advanced grid technologies to sustain higher network efficiency and maintaining power quality and security are under development. Electricity Transmission, Distribution, and Storage systems presents a comprehensive review of the materials, architecture, and performance of transmission and distribution networks and the application and integration of electricity storage systems. The first part of the book reviews the fundamental issues facing electricity networks, with chapters on transmission and distribution (T&D) infrastructure, reliability and engineering, regulation and planning, the protection of T&D networks, and the integration of distributed energy resources to the grid. Part Two reviews the development of transmission and distribution system, with advanced concepts such as FACTS and HVDC and discussion of superconducting material and network components. The final section reviews materials and applications of electricity storage systems in networks, renewable and distributed generation plants, and buildings and vehicles. Electricity Transmission, Distribution and Storage Systems is an essential reference for materials and electrical engineers, energy consultants, T&D systems designers, and technology manufacturers.
