Description

Power Quality in Power Systems and Electrical Machines, Second Edition helps readers understand the causes and effects of power quality problems and provides techniques to mitigate these problems.

Power quality is a measure of deviations in supply systems and their components, and affects all connected electrical and electronic equipment, including computers, TV monitors, and lighting. In this book analytical and measuring techniques are applied to power quality problems as they occur in central power stations and distributed generation such as alternative power systems.

Key Features

  • Provides theoretical and practical insight into power quality problems; most books available are either geared to theory or practice only
  • Problems and solutions at the end of each chapter dealing with practical applications
  • Includes application examples implemented in SPICE, Mathematica, and MATLAB

Readership

Power Engineering practitioners, researchers, designers, and engineers involved with power electronics
