Editorial Reviews

A graduate-level textbook that can also serve as a reference for engineers and researchers working on problems in modern power systems. Emphasizes incorporating HVDC converters and systems into the analysis of power systems, but describes algorithms that can be extended to other industrial components such as drives and smelters and to the flexible AC transmission systems technology. Considers only system studies, influenced by steady-state or transient converter control; and not fast transients such as lightning. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
