This book presents comprehensive coverage of all the basic concepts in electrical engineering. It is designed for undergraduate students of almost all branches of engineering for an introductory course in essentials of electrical engineering.

This book explains in detail the properties of different electric circuit elements, such as resistors, inductors and capacitors. The fundamental concepts of dc circuit laws, such as Kirchhoff’s current and voltage laws, and various network theorems, such as Thevenin’s theorem, Norton’s theorem, superposition theorem, maximum power transfer theorem, reciprocity theorem and Millman’s theorem are thoroughly discussed. The book also presents the analysis of ac circuits, and discusses transient analysis due to switch operations in ac and dc circuits as well as analysis of three-phase circuits. It describes series and parallel RLC circuits, magnetic circuits, and the working principle of different kinds of transformers. In addition, the book explains the principle of energy conversion, the operating characteristics of dc machines, three-phase induction machines and synchronous machines as well as single-phase motors. Finally, the book includes a discussion on technologies of electric power generation along with the different types of energy sources.

Key Features :

Includes numerous solved examples and illustrations for sound conceptual understanding.

Provides well-graded chapter-end problems to develop the problem-solving capability of the students.

Supplemented with three appendices addressing matrix algebra, trigonometric identities and Laplace transforms of commonly used functions to help students understand the mathematical concepts required for the study of electrical engineering.

* 77 chapters encompass the entire field of electrical engineering.
* THOUSANDS of valuable figures, tables, formulas, and definitions.
* Extensive bibliographic references.
Computer applications yield more insight into system behavior than is possible by using hand calculations on system elements. Computer-Aided Power Systems Analysis: Second Edition is a state-of-the-art presentation of basic principles and software for power systems in steady-state operation.

Originally published in 1985, this revised edition explores power systems from the point of view of the central control facility. It covers the elements of transmission networks, bus reference frame, network fault and contingency calculations, power flow on transmission networks, generator base power setting, and state estimation from on-line measurements.

The author develops methods used for full-scale networks. In the process of coding and execution, the user learns how the methods apply to actual networks, develops an understanding of the algorithms, and becomes familiar with the process of varying the parameters of the program.

Intended for users with a background that includes AC circuit theory, some basic control theory, and a first course in electronic machinery, this book contains material based upon the author’s experience both in the field and in the classroom, as well as many Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) publications. His mathematical approach and complete explanations allow readers to develop a solid foundation in power systems analysis.

This second edition includes a CD-ROM with stand-alone software to perform computations of all principles covered in the chapters. Executable programs include 0,1,2 conversions, double-hung shielded transmission line parameters, zero and positive bus impedance computations for unbalanced faults, power flow, unit commitment, and state estimation.

A practical treatment of power system design within the oil, gas, petrochemical and offshore industries. These have significantly different characteristics to large-scale power generation and long distance public utility industries.
Developed from a series of lectures on electrical power systems given to oil company staff and university students, Sheldrake's work provides a careful balance between sufficient mathematical theory and comprehensive practical application knowledge.
Features of the text include:
* Comprehensive handbook detailing the application of electrical engineering to the oil, gas and petrochemical industries
* Practical guidance to the electrical systems equipment used on off-shore production platforms, drilling rigs, pipelines, refineries and chemical plants
* Summaries of the necessary theories behind the design together with practical guidance on selecting the correct electrical equipment and systems required
* Presents numerous 'rule of thumb' examples enabling quick and accurate estimates to be made
* Provides worked examples to demonstrate the topic with practical parameters and data
* Each chapter contains initial revision and reference sections prior to concentrating on the practical aspects of power engineering including the use of computer modelling
* Offers numerous references to other texts, published papers and international standards for guidance and as sources of further reading material
* Presents over 35 years of experience in one self-contained reference
* Comprehensive appendices include lists of abbreviations in common use, relevant international standards and conversion factors for units of measure
An essential reference for electrical engineering designers, operations and maintenance engineers and technicians.
