Preface to Power System Analysis PDF

This book embodies the principles and objectives of Elements of Power System Analysis, the long-standing McGraw-Hill textbook by Professor William D. Stevenson, Jr.,

who was for many years my friend and colleague emeritus at North Carolina State University. Sadly, Professor Stevenson passed away on May 1, 1988, shortly after planning this joint venture.

In my writing I have made great efforts to continue the student -oriented style and format of his own famous textbook that has guided the education of numerous power system engineering students for a considerable number of years.

The aim here is to instill confidence and understanding of those concepts of power system analysis that are likely to to be encountered in the study and practice of electric power engineering.

The presentation is tutorial with emphasis on a thorough understanding of fundamentals and underlying principles.

The approach and level of treatment are directed toward the senior undergraduate and first-year graduate student of electrical engineering at technical colleges and universities.

The coverage, however, is quite comprehensive and spans a wide range of topics commonly encountered in electric power system engineering practice.

In this regard, electric utility and other industry-based engineers will find this textbook of much benefit in their everyday work.

Modern power systems have grown larger and more geographically expansive with many interconnections between neighboring systems.

Proper planning, operation, and control of such large-scale systems require advanced computerbased techniques, many of which are explained in a tutorial manner by means of numerical examples throughout this book.

The senior undergraduate engineering student about to embark on a career in the electric power industry will most certainly benefit from the exposure to these techniques, which are presented here in the detail appropriate to an introductory level.

Likewise, electric utility engineers, even those with a previous course in power system analysis, may find that the explanations of these commonly used analytic techniques more adequately prepare them to move beyond routine work.

Power System Analysis can serve as a basis for two semesters of undergraduate study or for first-semester graduate study.

The wide range of topics facilitates versatile selection of chapters and sections for completion in the semester or quarter time frame.

Familiarity with the basic principles of electric  circuits, phasor algebra, and the rudiments of d ifferential equations is assumed.

The reader should also have some understanding of matrix operations and notation as they are used throughout the text.

The coverage includes newer . / tOPlCS suc h as state estimation and unit commitment, as well as more detailed presentations and newer approaches to traditional subjects such as transformers, synchronous machines, and network faults.

Where appropriate, summary tables allow quick reference of important ideas. Basic concepts of computer based algorithms are presented so that students can implement their own computer programs.

Chapters 2 and 3 a re devoted to the transformer and synchronous machine, respectively, and should complement material covered in other electric circuits and machines courses.

Transmission-line parameters and calculations are studied in Chapters 4 through 6. Network models based on the admittance and impedance representations are developed in Chapters -;

And 8, which also introduce gaussian elimination, Kron reduction, triangular factorization, a nd the Zbus building algorithm.

The power-flow problem, symmetrical com ponents, and unsymmetrical faults are presented in Chapters 9 through 12: \\hereas Chapter 13 provides a self-contained development of economic dispatch and the basics of unit commitment.

Contingency analysis and external equivalents are the subjects of Chapter 14. Power system state estimation is covered in Chapter 15, while power system stability is introduced in Chapter 16.

Homework problems and exercises are provided at the end of each chapter. I am most pleased to acknowledge the assistance given to me by a number of people with whom I have been associated within the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University.

Dr. Stan S. H. Lee, my colleague and friend for many years, has always willingly given his time and effort when I needed help, advice, or suggestions at the various stages of development of this textbook.

A number of the homework problems and solutions were contributed by him and by Dr. Gamini Wickramasekara, one of my former graduate students at North Carolina State University.

Dr. Michael 1. Gorman, another of my recent gradu;lle sLucJents, gave ullstintingly or himselr in developing t he computer-based figures and solutions for many of the numerical examples throughout the various chapters of the text.

Mr. W. Adria n Buie, a recent graduate of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, -un dertook the challenge of committing the entire textbook to the computer and produced a truly professional manuscript; in this regard, Mr. Barry W. Tyndall was also most helpful in the early stages of the writing.
