Overview

Electric service has become a necessity not only in the lives of individuals, but also in the operation of public services. Already military surveillance and protection has been extended to nuclear power installations and will probably be extended to large power generating facilities. Tackling the problems of reliability caused by the deregulation of electric utilities and those of security created by the events of 9-11 by suggesting solutions in the design, construction , maintenance and operation of transmission facilities, this book will discuss the effect of deregulation on the reliability of the newly deregulated systems and consideration of what may be done to maintain or improve the reliability of the now deregulated transmission systems. Some phenomena occurring in electric theory are included, in non- or semi-technical terms, for the benefit of the non-engineer.
