When John Grainger began revising William Stevenson's classic Elements of Power System Analysis, he realized that a complete modernization was in order. By the time he finished, an entirely new book was written, re-titled Power System Analysis. Covering such topics as power flow, power system stability and transmission lines, Power System Analysis teaches the fundamental topics of power system analysis using logical discussions and numerous examples. The new chapter on power system state estimation incorporates the latest developments in the field, and the discussion of system control covers economic factors of line losses and penalty factors. The loyal following earned by Stevenson will surely enjoy the modern power system analysis presented here.

This is a fantastic text, especially for non-experts getting into the field. It derives the basics of power system modeling with minimal assumptions about the reader's background knowledge. It includes important modeling details, such as transformers which are often omitted from similar texts.
Due to it's age, this text fails to include some recent developments in power system modeling, none the less, I highly recommend it as a text for an introduction to power system modeling.
