Transient Phenomena in Electrical Power Systems analyzes transient phenomena in electro-mechanical systems, and of the steady conditions which precede or follow such transient condition. The book deals with the short-period transient processes connected with changes in the electro-mechanical condition of the system, the normal steady state, and also the steady fault condition. The text also investigates electro-mechanical and electromagnetic phenomena, including the inter-actions of the components in the system, with emphasis on the determination of conditions leading to stability. The book deals with transient phenomena either by assuming linearity for all circuit parameters, or by allowing for some non-linearity. The text progresses from simplified physical concepts to more rigorous developments of appropriate mathematical models using principles related to the laws of mechanics and to the laws of electromagnetism. The book recommends practical stability calculations, some methods of improving power-handling capacities, as well as the stability of transmission lines and power systems. The book is beneficial to electrical engineers, technical designers, and structural engineers whose works are related with power generation or hydro-electric stations.
