Overview

Electrical Load-Curve Coverage covers the proceedings of the Symposium on Load-Curve Coverage in Future Electric Power Generating Systems, organized by the Committee on Electric Power, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, Rome, Italy, on October 24-28, 1977. This symposium considers the opportunity for an international exchange of economic and technical information on problems connected with the coverage of the full load curve.
This book is composed of five parts encompassing 48 chapters, and begins with the optimum composition of the generating system. The first part considers the use of mathematical models for optimization of energy sources in some countries. The succeeding parts deal with the means of electricity generation for the variable part of the load curve. This part examines the electric consumption of steam and gas turbines and the concept of peak-power load. Other parts discuss the means of storage at user level. The final parts consider natural characteristics of the energy demand (load curves).
This book will prove useful electrical engineers and researchers.
