Comprehensive in scope, this book, now in its fully updated second edition, was written to fill the need for a truly applications-oriented text on electrical distribution systems. All critical aspects of power production, distribution, control, conversion and measurement are clearly presented. The authors place emphasis on real-world applications, examining electrical distribution and associated system operation from a user's or technician's point of view. The use of an ‘electrical power systems' model facilitates the reader's comprehensive understanding of electrical distribution, utilizing power distribution as a key starting point, and then clearly delineating the relationship to other important associated systems. The final chapter of this new edition has been refocused to emphasize the economics of distribution systems, computer power requirements and current environmental considerations.
