Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using an unusual approach, Electrical Calculations and Guidelines for Generating Station and Industrial Plants simplifies the theory and calculations electrical engineers typically need to understand in order to support operations, maintenance, and betterment projects at generating stations and industrial facilities. Organized into seven major sections, the book begins with a cursory review or refresher of basic electrical theory. It then provides additional insights into electrical theory that is typically not presented and sets the conventions that will be used throughout the book.

Building on this foundation, the book discusses the conversions, data gathering, and calculation procedures for voltage studies, power transfer, and short circuit analysis. In the interest of simplicity, when a calculation does not involve transformation, a 3-phase version of Ohm 's Law is applied to simplify the procedure. When transformers are involved in the calculation (short circuit studies), the per-unit system is utilized.

The author covers switchgear overcurrent coordination, high impedance ground detection schemes, transformer protection, and residual voltage bus transfer circuits. He provides detailed background information on the time coordination of overcurrent relays and on the benefits and electrical phenomenon associated with the application of high impedance (resistance) ground detection schemes. He also explains the gathering of data needed to set the various protection functions, the calculation procedures for actually setting the elements, and the math associated with various types of impedance elements. The book then elucidates the need for the various protection functions and typical generator and turbine withstands for the associated abnormal operating conditions. It then covers practical apparatus calculations and calculation procedures for various aspects of buses, cable, circuit breakers, current transformers, generators, meters, motors, and transformers.

The final two sections present suggested electrical operating and maintenance guidelines for generating station and industrial facilities. In reality, guidelines are moving targets that require periodic revision to reflect site specific experience and conditions, industry experience, manufacturers recommendations, and the ever changing regulatory requirements.

Book News Annotation:

For 15 years before early retirement, Baker was responsible for the electrical engineering support of 12 fossil-fueled generating stations in southern California, where he was exposed to many major operating and maintenance errors, short circuits, and electrical apparatus failures. Now a consultant on such matters, he shares material he uses in four-day seminars for electrical engineers. He covers the basics, electrical studies, auxiliary system protection, generation protection, electrical apparatus calculations, electrical operating guidelines, and electrical maintenance guidelines.

Synopsis:

This is really a practical, hands-on book for the working engineer.

Phillip Wheeler, former Southern California Edison supervising electrical apparatus engineer and regional IEEE PES/IAS leader

Electrical Calculations and Guidelines for Generating Stations and Industrial Plants

  • Covers, in a single reference, more than 160 calculations for the design, operation, and maintenance support of generating stations and industrial facilities

  • Is supported by inexpensive, simple-to-use software that automates presented calculations

  • Explores electrical theory at the atomic level: How can AC current flow at or near the speed of light? Why is a changing magnetic field required to induce a voltage? What causes hysteresis loss

  • Bridges the gap between basic theory of AC and that of three-phase power systems

  • Explains the phasor analysis of power and instrument transformer connections

  • Presents practical coverage of power system analysis, including theory and equations involved with short circuits, voltage, and power transfer

  • Demonstrates safety calculations used to determine induced voltages, magnetic forces, and personal ground fusion

  • Delves into auxiliary power system protection, including ground detection and bus transfer schemes

  • Presents typical turbine/generator withstand times and calculations for abnormal operating conditions

  • Provides a balanced cookbook approach to calculating auxiliary power and generator protective relay settings one that avoids nuisance tripping and protects apparatus

  • Presents electrical operations and maintenance guidelines for generating stations and industrial plants

Synopsis:

This is really a practical, hands-on book for the working engineer.

Phillip Wheeler, former Southern California Edison supervising electrical apparatus engineer and regional IEEE PES/IAS leader

A very helpful tool for solving circuit protection problems, Electrical Calculations and Guidelines for Generating Stations and Industrial Plants presents and simplifies the theory and 132 calculations that electrical engineers typically need to understand in order to support operations, maintenance, and betterment projects for generating stations and other large industrial facilities. The book begins with a cursory review or refresher of basic electrical theory. It then provides additional insights into electrical theory and sets the conventions that will be utilized throughout the remainder of the book.
