Overview

Although many textbooks deal with a broad range of topics in the power system area of electrical engineering, few are written specifically for an in-depth study of modern electric power transmission.

Drawing from the author’s 31 years of teaching and power industry experience, in the U.S. and abroad, Electrical Power Transmission System Engineering: Analysis and Design, Second Edition provides a wide-ranging exploration of modern power transmission engineering. This self-contained text includes ample numerical examples and problems, and makes a special effort to familiarize readers with vocabulary and symbols used in the industry.

Provides essential impedance tables and templates for placing and locating structures

Divided into two sections—electrical and mechanical design and analysis—this book covers a broad spectrum of topics. These range from transmission system planning and in-depth analysis of balanced and unbalanced faults, to construction of overhead lines and factors affecting transmission line route selection. The text includes three new chapters and numerous additional sections dealing with new topics, and it also reviews methods for allocating transmission line fixed charges among joint users.

Uniquely comprehensive, and written as a self-tutorial for practicing engineers or students, this book covers electrical and mechanical design with equal detail. It supplies everything required for a solid understanding of transmission system engineering.
