Look inside this book
Electric Power Distribution System Engineering is written for senior-level undergraduate students or beginning-level graduate students, and for practicing engineers who may want to teach themselves.
- Distribution system planning
- Distribution system automation
- Load characteristics
- Design of subtransmission lines
- Design considerations of primary systems
- Design considerations of secondary systems
- Substation design
- Voltage drop, power loss
- Distribution transformers
- Applications of capacitors
- Voltage regulation
- System protection
- Power quality
This book does not shy away from using math to explain the relationships in distribution systems. There are numerous worked examples of typical problems which the student can apply to his/her specific situation.
The appendices at the end of the book are packed with practical data, and these tables alone are worth the price of the book.
- Impedance tables for overhead lines, underground cables, transformers.
- Graphic symbols used in engineering drawings.
- Glossary of technical terms.
- The per-unit system -- single-phase and three-phase.
- Notation -- English letters and symbols used in engineering calculations.
