Symmetrical Components introduces the fundamental concepts involved in the method of symmetrical components. The book also demonstrate the method for analyzing simple power networks that are subjected to unbalanced fault conditions. The text first discusses the h operator, and then proceeds to detailing symmetrical components. The next two chapters cover the properties and measurement of symmetrical components. Chapter 5 tackles the short-circuit faults on an alternating current generator, while Chapter 6 discusses the equivalents circuits for unbalanced faults. The seventh chapter talks about the sequence networks and faults on three-phase systems, while the last chapter deals with unbalanced loads. The text will be of great use to students of electrical engineering. Professional electrical engineers and technicians will also benefit from the book.
