This book is meant to offer Architects, Property Mangers, FacilityManagers, Building Engineers, Information Technology Professionals,Data Center Personnel, Electrical & Mechanical Technicians andstudents in undergraduate, graduate, or continuing educationprograms relevant insight into the Mission Critical Environmentwith an emphasis on business resiliency, data center efficiency,and green power technology. Industry improvements, standards, andtechniques have been incorporated into the text and address thelatest issues prevalent in the Mission Critical Industry.

An emphasis on green technologies and certifications ispresented throughout the book. In addition, a description of theUnited States energy infrastructure's dependency on oil, inrelation to energy security in the mission critical industry, isdiscussed. In conjunction with this, either a new chapter will becreated on updated policies and regulations specifically related tothe mission critical industry or updates to policies andregulations will be woven into most chapters. The topics addressedthroughout this book include safety, fire protection, energysecurity and data center cooling, along with other commonchallenges and issues facing industry engineers today.

The latest practical applications of electricity marketequilibrium models in analyzing electricity markets

Electricity market deregulation is driving the power energyproduction from a monopolistic structure into a competitive marketenvironment. The development of electricity markets hasnecessitated the need to analyze market behavior and power.Restructured Electric Power Systems reviews the latestdevelopments in electricity market equilibrium models and discussesthe application of such models in the practical analysis andassessment of electricity markets.

Drawing upon the extensive involvement in the research andindustrial development of the leading experts in the subject area,the book starts by explaining the current developments ofelectrical power systems towards smart grids and then relates theoperation and control technologies to the aspects in electricitymarkets. It explores:

The problems of electricity market behavior and market power

Mathematical programs with equilibrium constraints (MPEC) andequilibrium problems with equilibrium constraints (EPEC)

Tools and techniques for solving the electricity marketequilibrium problems

Various electricity market equilibrium models

State-of-the-art techniques for computing the electricity marketequilibrium problems

The application of electricity market equilibrium models inassessing the economic benefits of transmission expansions formarket environments, forward and spot markets, short-term powersystem security, and analysis of reactive power impact

Also featured are computational resources to allow readers todevelop algorithms on their own, as well as future researchdirections in modeling and computational techniques in electricitymarket analysis. Restructured Electric Power Systems is aninvaluable reference for electrical engineers and power systemeconomists from power utilities and for professors, postgraduatestudents, and undergraduate students in electrical powerengineering, as well as those responsible for the design,engineering, research, and development of competitive electricitymarkets and electricity market policy.

A fully expanded new edition documenting the significantimprovements that have been made to the tests and monitors ofelectrical insulation systems

Electrical Insulation for Rotating Machines: Design,Evaluation, Aging, Testing, and Repair, Second Edition coversall aspects in the design, deterioration, testing, and repair ofthe electrical insulation used in motors and generators of allratings greater than fractional horsepower size. It discusses bothrotor and stator windings; gives a historical overview of machineinsulation design; and describes the materials and manufacturingmethods of the rotor and stator winding insulation systems incurrent use (while covering systems made over fifty years ago). Itcovers how to select the insulation systems for use in newmachines, and explains over thirty different rotor and statorwinding failure processes, including the methods to repair, orleast slow down, each process. Finally, it reviews the theoreticalbasis, practical application, and interpretation of forty differenttests and monitors that are used to assess winding insulationcondition, thereby helping machine users avoid unnecessary machinefailures and reduce maintenance costs.

Electrical Insulation for Rotating Machines:

Documents the large array of machine electrical failuremechanisms, repair methods, and test techniques that are currentlyavailableEducates owners of machines as well as repair shops on thedifferent failure processes and shows them how to fix or otherwiseameliorate themOffers chapters on testing, monitoring, and maintenancestrategies that assist in educating machine users and repair shopson the tests needed for specific situations and how to minimizemotor and generator maintenance costsCaptures the state of both the present and past“art” in rotating machine insulation system design andmanufacture, which helps designers learn from the knowledgeacquired by previous generations

An ideal read for researchers, developers, and manufacturers ofelectrical insulating materials for machines, ElectricalInsulation for Rotating Machines will also benefit designers ofmotors and generators who must select and apply electricalinsulation in machines.

Power system operation from an operator’sperspective

Power systems are operated with the primary objectives ofsafety, reliability, and efficiency. Practical Power SystemOperation is the first book to provide a comprehensive pictureof power system operation for both professional engineers andstudents alike. The book systematically describes theoperator’s functions, the processes required to operate thesystem, and the enabling technology solutions deployed tofacilitate the processes. In his book, Dr. Ebrahim Vaahedi, anexpert practitioner in the field, presents a holistic reviewof:

The current state and workings of power system operationProblems encountered by operators and solutions to remedy theproblemsIndividual operator functions, processes, and the enablingtechnology solutionsDeployment of real-time assessment, control, and optimizationsolutions in power system operationEnergy Management Systems and their architectureDistribution Management Systems and their architecturePower system operation in the changing energy industrylandscape and the evolving technology solutions

Because power system operation is such a critical functionaround the world, the consequences of improper operation range fromfinancial repercussions to societal welfare impacts that putpeople’s safety at risk. Practical Power SystemOperation includes a step-by-step illustrated guide to theoperator functions, processes, and decision support tools thatenable the processes. As a bonus, it includes a detailed review ofthe emerging technology and operation solutions that have evolvedover the last few years. Written to the standards of highereducation and university curriculums, Practical Power SystemOperation has been classroom tested for excellence and is amust-read for anyone looking to learn the critical skills they needfor a successful career in power system operations.
