Electrical Power Systems Quality, Third Edition

by: Surya Santoso, Ph.D.,, Mark F. McGranaghan, Roger C. Dugan, H. Wayne Beaty


Abstract: Electrical Power Systems Quality, Third Edition, is a complete, accessible, and up-to-date guide to identifying and preventing the causes of power quality problems. The information is presented without heavy-duty equations, making it practical and easily readable for utility engineers, industrial engineers, technicians, and equipment designers. This in-depth resource addresses the essentials of power quality and tested methods to improve compatibility among the power system, customer equipment, and processes. Coverage includes: • Standard terms and definitions for power quality phenomena • Protecting against voltage sags and interruptions • Harmonic phenomena and dealing with harmonic distortion • Transient overvoltages • Long-duration voltage variations • Benchmarking power quality • International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standards • Maintaining power quality in distributed generation systems • Common wiring and grounding problems, along with solutions • Site surveys and power quality monitoring
