Computational Methods for Electric Power Systems Second Version by Mariesa L. Crow
This new version has been up to date to incorporate new materials. Particularly, this new version has added sections on the next materials:
• Generalized Minimal Residual (GMRES) strategies
• Numerical differentiation
• Secant technique
• Homotopy and continuation strategies
• Power technique for computing dominant eigenvalues
• Singular-value decomposition and pseudoinverses
• Matrix pencil technique
and a major revision of the Optimization chapter (Chapter 6) to incorporate linear and quadratic programming strategies. A course construction would sometimes embody the next chapters in sequence: Chapter 1, 2, and 3. From this level, any of the chapters can comply with with out lack of consistency. I’ve tried to construction every chapter to provide the reader an summary of the strategies with salient examples. In lots of instances nonetheless, it isn’t doable to provide an exhaustive protection of the fabric; many matters have a long time of labor dedicated to their improvement.
Most of the strategies offered on this e-book have business software program packages that can accomplish their answer much more rigorously with many failsafe attributes included (reminiscent of accounting for ill-conditioning, and so forth.). It’s not my intent to make college students consultants in every matter, however somewhat to develop an appreciation for the strategies behind the packages.
Many business packages present default settings or decisions of parameters for the person; via higher understanding of the strategies driving the answer, knowledgeable customers could make higher decisions and have a greater understanding of the conditions wherein the strategies could fail. If this e-book supplies any reader with extra confidence in utilizing business packages, I’ve succeeded in my intent. As earlier than, I’m indebted to many individuals: my husband Jim and my kids David and Jacob for making daily a pleasure, my mother and father Lowell and Sondra for their persevering with help, and Frieda Adams for all she does to assist me succeed.
Preface to the First Version:
This e-book is the outgrowth of a graduate course that I’ve taught on the College of Missouri-Rolla for the previous decade or so. Over time, I’ve used a lot of wonderful textbooks for this course, however every textbook was all the time lacking a number of the matters that I needed to cowl within the class. After counting on handouts for a few years, my good good friend Leo Grigsby inspired me to place them down within the type of a e-book (if arm-twisting might be known as encouragement . . . ).
With the help of my graduate college students, who I used as testbeds for every chapter, this e-book progressively got here into existence. I hope that those that learn this e-book will discover this area as stimulating as I’ve discovered it. Along with Leo and the effective individuals at CRC Press, I’m grateful to the College of Missouri-Rolla administration and the Division of Electrical and Laptop Engineering for offering the setting to nurture my educating and analysis and giving me the latitude to pursue my private pursuits on this area.
Lastly, I don’t usually get the chance to publicly acknowledge the individuals who’ve been instrumental in my skilled improvement. I’d prefer to thank: Marija Ilic, who initially put me on the trail; Peter Sauer, who inspired me alongside the way in which; Jerry Heydt, for offering inspiration; Frieda Adams, for all she does to make my life simpler; Steve Pekarek, for placing up with my grumbling and complaining; and Lowell and Sondra Crow for making all of it doable.
