Environmental Science and Pollution Control #85: Symmetrical Components for Power Systems Engineeringby J. Lewis Blackburn
Synopses & Reviews
Emphasizing a practical conception of system unbalances, basic circuits, and calculations, this essential reference/text presents the foundations of symmetrical components with a review of per unit (percent), phasors, and polarity--keeping the mathematics as simple as possible throughout. According to IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, this book "???provides students and practicing engineers with a fundamental understanding of the method of symmetrical components and its applications in three-phase electrical systems. . .A useful feature of this book. . .is the incorporation of numerous examples in the text and 30 pages of problems."
Book News Annotation:
Emphasizing a practical conception of system unbalances, basic circuits, and calculations, presents the foundations of symmetrical components with a review of per unit (percent), phasors, and polarity. Mathematics is kept as simple as possible throughout. Details the visualization of faults, unbalances, and sequence quantities, illustrating how system currents and voltages change during faults. Discusses fundamental constants for generators, motors, transformers, reactors, capacitors, lines and cables, and explains the determination of system parameters for manual calculations or computer programs. Includes problems.
