Power Systems Research Guide: Books & eBooks
A list of resources for students registered for power systems courses at WPI.
This textbook provides a grounding in essential power system theory while also focusing on practical power engineering applications. This updated edition still covers all of the fundamental power systems subjects but is now expanded to cover increasingly important topics like climate change and renewable power generation.
The modernization of industrial power systems has been stifled by industry's acceptance of extremely outdated practices. In order to break free, engineers must apply novel techniques to plan, design, and implement electrical power systems. This book illustrates the importance of reliable power systems and provides engineers the tools to plan, design, and implement one.
This book provides fundamental theoretical concepts for the understanding, the modelling, and the optimization of energy conversion and storage devices. The discussion is based on the general footing of efficiency-power relations and energy-power relations (Ragone plots).
Provides relevant material for the basics of electrical power transmission, generation, and usage. This second edition is updated to address the recent environmental effects of electric power generation and transmission, which have become more important in conjunction with the deregulation of the industry.
Covers the operation of power transmission and distribution systems and their growing difficulty as the share of renewable energy sources in the world's energy mix grows and the proliferation trend of small scale power generation becomes a reality. The book gives an understanding of the key issues necessary for the development of such strategies.
This textbook provides complete coverage of electrical circuits and introduces students to the field of energy conversion technologies, analysis and design. It covers topics such as devices, switching circuit analysis techniques, converter types, and methods of conversion. A detailed discussion of resonant and soft switching dc-to-dc converters along with covering digital control, non-linear control, and micro-inverters for power electronics applications.
This book focuses on protective relaying, which is an indispensable part of electrical power systems. The text covers smart grids, integration of wind and solar generation, microgrids, and MMPRs as the driving aspects of innovations in protective relaying. Topics such as cybersecurity and instrument transformers are also explored.
This book discusses semiconductor properties, pn-junctions and the physical phenomena for understanding power devices in depth. Working principles of state-of-the-art power diodes, thyristors, MOSFETs and IGBTs are explained in detail, as well as key aspects of semiconductor device production technology. Special peculiarities of devices from the ascending semiconductor materials SiC and GaN are discussed.
