About Of The Book:

This book is the first comprehensive volume of its kind that focuses on all of these topics, which are directly relevant to most power engineers on a daily basis. In addition, engineers working in the renewable energy technologies would also find this book useful since the electrical power system for extracting energy from wind and ocean currents is the exact mirror image of the variable frequency motors driving pumps, fans, and ship propellers
Traditional books on power systems focused on high voltage transmission, in which only a handful of power engineers get involved. A vast majority of power engineers work in cities, towns, large factories, steel mills, commercial and institutional buildings, refineries, data centers, railways, shipping ports, commercial and navy ships, etc. They mostly deal with power taken from the utility company or self-generated mostly for running motors and other loads via transformers, cables, and protection devices such as fuses and circuit breakers. They also routinely deal with batteries of various electrochemistries, power electronics converters of all kinds, variable-frequency motor drives, etc.
The world's navies have begun to switch from mechanical to electric propulsion, using power electronics for the many benefits they offer. With high-powered combat weapons on board, they would need power plants of a larger size comparable to those on the ground. To date, there is no single book available that covers the full range of electrical power systems and power electronics.
Many countries are making huge investments in building new power plants and power grids that will require more power engineers to service the industry. For this trend, college students are now again attracted to electric power programs. No other technology has brought about greater change to the electric power industry and still has the potential for more future improvements than power electronics. Power electronics equipment prices have fallen to about 1/10 since the late 1980s, which has led to rapid growth in their applications throughout the power industry. Power plant ratings for large cruise ships are close to 100 megawatts due to their use of electric propulsion with an abundance of power electronics.
