Transients in Electrical Systems
Some of the most difficult problems to analyze on electrical systems are transients. They occur when a switch opens or closes, a motor turns on, lightning strikes, capacitors switch, a protective device reacts, or there's some other change that causes an abrupt rise or drop in current or voltage. These conditions happen quickly, then disappear, so it's hard to "see" them. And traditional circuit analysis tools that work for steady-state conditions do not apply. The complete title of this book is Transients in Electrical Systems - Analysis, Recognition, and Mitigation. It covers the origin of disturbances in electrical systems, explains how to analyze them, and offers suggestions for mitigation and control. To make analyzing transients easy (well, let's say less difficult), they're described in words, then shown in circuit diagrams, and illustrated with oscillograms and computer simulations. The book has 24 chapters plus 7 appendices. The first 4 chapters explain in general, how to analyze transients. Each of the next 20 chapters deals with one category of transient, so if you know the cause of the transient you're concerned with, you can go immediately to that chapter. The appendices review the math techniques used to analyze transients.
