Power System Stability and Control
Part of the second edition of The Electric Power Engineering Handbook, Power System Stability and Control offers conveniently focused and detailed information covering all aspects concerning power system protection, dynamics, stability, operation, and control. Contributed by worldwide leaders under the guidance of one of the world’s most respected and accomplished authorities in power engineering, this carefully crafted reference provides convenient access to both overviews and detailed information on a diverse array of topics.
Updates to nearly every existing chapter keep this book at the forefront of developments in modern power systems, reflecting international standards, practices, and technologies. New sections were added to keep pace with new developments and rapid growth in the areas of small signal stability and power system oscillations, power system stability controls, and dynamic modeling of power systems. This edition also features a review of a wide area dynamics analysis carried out in 2005 for the western interconnection of the North American power system. Other highly active areas contributing updated information include transformer and transmission line protection, optimal power flow, and security analysis.
