This textbook, in its second edition aims to provide undergraduate students of Electrical Engineering with a unified treatment of all aspects of modern power systems, including generation, transmission and distribution of electric power, load flow studies, economic considerations, fault analysis and stability, high voltage phenomena, system protection, power control, and so on. The text systematically deals with the fundamental techniques in power systems, coupled with adequate analytical techniques and reference to practices in the field. Special emphasis is placed on the latest developments in power system engineering. The book will be equally useful to the postgraduate students specialising in power systems and practising engineers as a reference. NEW TO THIS EDITION • Chapters on Elements of Electric Power Generation and Power System Economics are thoroughly updated. • A new Chapter on Control of Active and Reactive Power is added.

This concise textbook is intended for undergraduate students of electrical engineering offering a course in high voltage engineering. Written in an easy-to-understand style, the text, now in its Second Edition, acquaints students with the physical phenomena and technical problems associated with high voltages in power systems. A complete quantitative description of the topics in high voltage engineering is difficult because of the statistical nature of the electrical breakdown phenomena in insulators. With this in mind, this book has been written to provide a basic treatment of high voltage engineering qualitatively and, wherever necessary, quantitatively. Special emphasis has been laid on breakdown mechanisms in gaseous dielectrics as it helps students gain a sound conceptual base for appreciating high voltage problems. The origin and nature of lightning and switching overvoltages occurring in power systems have been explained and illustrated with practical observations. The protection of high voltage insulation against such overvoltages has also been discussed lucidly. The concept of modern digital methods of high voltage testing of insulators, transformers, and cables has been explained. In the Second Edition, a new chapter on electrostatic field estimation and an appendix on partial discharges have been added to update the contents. Solved problems help students develop a critical appreciation of the concepts discussed. End-of-chapter questions enable students to obtain a more in-depth understanding of the key concepts.
This market leading classic is a true comprehensive on-the-job reference, covering all aspects of getting electricity from the source to user via the power grid. Electric power transmission and distribution is a huge sector, and engineers require the real world guidance of this book in order to upgrade networks to handle smart and renewable sources of power. This new edition covers renewable and distributed energy developments, international regulatory compliance issues with coverage of IEC standards, and new key conversions to US based standards and terminologies

Utilising examples from real-life systems and challenges, this book clearly and succinctly outlines fundamental knowledge requirements for working in this area. Written by engineers for engineers, theory is tied to current best-practice, and new chapters cover hot topics including DC Transmission, Smart Networks and bringing renewable sources into the grid. Particularly useful for power engineers starting out on their career, this new edition ensures Bayliss remains an essential ‘tool of the trade’ for all engineers, technicians, managers and planners involved in electricity supply and industrial electricity usage.

Updated to ensure that the book continues to deliver all the fundamental knowledge requirements of practicing power engineers in a single volumeHigh profile authors with extensive career-long knowledge of the industry30% new and revised content includes new chapters on renewable and distributed energy sourcesExpanded coverage of power quality, latest EMC standards and requirements, earthing and bonding, surge protection, line design and switchgear developments
