Electric Energy: An Introduction, Second Edition

Electric Energy: An Introduction, Second Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The ongoing search for renewable energy, the societal impact of blackouts, the environmental impact of generating electricity, along with the new ABET criterion have contributed to renewed interest in electric energy as a core subject. Emphasizing modeling, analysis, and real-world issues, this new edition of Electric Energy provides a refreshed overview of this increasingly important field.

New in the Second Edition

Expanded coverage of the mathematical modeling of renewable systems, power electronics, and electric safety

A chapter on power quality

An expanded chapter on machines that includes dc machines and single phase motors

A chapter on future power systems

Along with the standard topics of power electronics and electromechanical conversion, the text also covers energy resources, power plants, environmental impacts of power generation, power system operation, renewable energy, and electrical safety. Most of the topics are related to issues encountered daily in practice, and most of the examples are from real systems and use real data.

With a flexible structure and exceptional relevance to real-life issues, Electric Energy, Second Edition brings together all the topics needed to build the broad-based background today 's engineers need.

Book News Annotation:

This expanded volume is intended to serve as a textbook for a first course on electric energy in engineering schools. However, it is geared towards a restructured course that is relevant to all electrical engineering and most mechanical engineering students while still retaining discussion of such traditional topics as electromechanical conversion, transformers, power electronics, power quality, and three-phase systems and maintaining high levels of modeling and analysis. After a review of the history of the development of the electrical energy system, the volume's chapters address generation, transmission, and distribution systems; energy resources; primary resource power plants; the environmental impact of generating electricity; renewable energy methods; ac circuit analysis; three-phase systems analysis; electric safety; power electronic devices and circuits; transformers analysis; essential electrical machines such as the induction motor, synchronous machines, and the stepper motor; the imperfection of the ac waveform; operation of the power system; and future directions in power system research.
