Electric power distribution system engineering, 2d ed
Electric power distribution system engineering, 2d ed.
Gonen (California State U., Sacramento) has written a thorough, thoughtfully organized text presenting the practical tasks of distribution system engineering used for electric power that can be used for two-semester courses for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students. The second edition contains new sections on automation, advanced SCADA systems, computer applications, and electric power quality. Each chapter concludes with a lengthy list of problems that teach the student through active application of concepts. New examples and MATLAB applications appear and many topics have been expanded, including sections on load forecasting techniques and high-impedance faults. A full chapter is devoted to analysis of various indexes of distribution system reliability.
