Front Cover
Wiley, 1990 - Technology & Engineering - 361 pages
0 Reviews
Describes the main computer modeling techniques that constitute the framework of modern power system analysis. After describing the main computational and transmission system developments influencing power system analysis, the book covers load or power flow, AC system faults and the electromechanical behavior of power systems. Dynamic models of power system plants and their use in multi-machine transient stability analysis are discussed. Chapters also cover the electromagnetic transients program, harmonic flow analysis, power system security and optimization analysis. Recent advances in interactive power system analysis and developments in computer graphics are also presented. The appendices cover the more basic aspects of power system theory, matrix analysis and numerical techniques to help newcomers pick up the relevant background.

About the author (1990)

Jos Arrillaga is a very experienced author, now an Emeritus Professor from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. He has written 10 books, including 5 for Wiley on the topic of electrical power systems, such as "Power System Harmonics, 2nd Edition" (Wiley, 2003), "Computer Modelling of Electrical Power Systems 2nd Edition" (Wiley 2001) and "High Voltage Direct Current Transmission" (IEE, 1998). He has also written over 350 journal and conference papers. During the course of his career he has supervised around 50 PhD and 60 MSc/ME theses, most of them on the subject of high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission, and he has also participated and convened several working groups. In 1997 he was awarded the Uno Lamm medal for outstanding contributions to HVDC transmission and he was in the New Years Honours list as a member of the New Zealand order of Merit.
