Electric Power Engineering Series

With contributions from worldwide leaders in the field, Power System Stability and Control, Third Edition (part of the five-volume set, The Electric Power Engineering Handbook) updates coverage of recent developments and rapid technological growth in essential aspects of power systems. Edited by L.L. Grigsby, a respected and accomplished authority in power engineering, and section editors Miroslav Begovic, Prabha Kundur, and Bruce Wollenberg, this reference presents substantially new and revised content.

Topics covered include:

  • Power System Protection;
  • Power System Dynamics and Stability;
  • Power System Operation and Control;

This book provides a simplified overview of advances in international standards, practices, and technologies, such as small signal stability and power system oscillations, power system stability controls, and dynamic modeling of power systems. This resource will help readers achieve safe, economical, high-quality power delivery in a dynamic and demanding environment. With five new and 10 fully revised chapters, the book supplies a high level of detail and, more importantly, a tutorial style of writing and use of photographs and graphics to help the reader understand the material.

New Chapters Cover:

  • Systems Aspects of Large Blackouts;
  • Wide-Area Monitoring and Situational Awareness;
  • Assessment of Power System Stability and Dynamic Security Performance;
  • Wind Power Integration in Power Systems;
  • FACTS Devices;
