Most traditional power systems textbooks focus on high-voltage transmission. However, the majority of power engineers work in urban factories, buildings, or industries where power comes from utility companies or is self-generated. Introduction to Electrical Power and Power Electronics is the first book of its kind to cover the entire scope of electrical power and power electronics systems in one volume—with a focus on topics that are directly relevant in power engineers’ daily work. Learn How Electrical Power Is Generated, Distributed, and Utilized Composed of 17 chapters, the book is organized into two parts. The first part introduces aspects of electrical power that most power engineers are involved in during their careers, including the distribution of power to load equipment such as motors via step-down transformers, cables, circuit breakers, relays, and fuses. For engineers working with standalone power plants, it also tackles generators. The book discusses how to design and operate systems for economic use of power and covers the use of batteries in greater depth than typically found in traditional power system texts. Understand How Power Electronics Work in Modern Systems The second part delves into power electronics switches, as well as the DC–DC converters, AC–DC–AC converters, and frequency converters used in variable-frequency motor drives. It also discusses quality-of-power issues in modern power systems with many large power electronics loads. A chapter on power converter cooling presents important interdisciplinary design topics. Draw on the Author’s Extensive Industry and Teaching Experience This timely book draws on the author’s 30 years of work experience at General Electric, Lockheed Martin, and Westinghouse Electric and 15 years of teaching electrical power at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. Designed for a one-semester or two-quarter course in electrical power and power electronics, it is also ideal for a refresher course or as a one-stop reference for industry professionals.

Fundamental changes in electricity generation and consumption are demanding the electricity system to perform in ways for which it was not designed-requiring new capabilities and system designs to maintain historical levels of reliability. The planning of electric power distribution in buildings and infrastructure facilities is subject to constant transformation. The search for an assignment-compliant, dependable solution should fulfill those usual requirements placed on cost optimization, efficiency, and time needs. At the same time, technical development innovations and findings from the practical world are constantly seeping into the planning process.This book brings together the detailed coverage of electrical power and power electronics with practical examples from industry. It encompasses selected topics and emerging technologies in power electronics, including components, systems, and processes used in solid-state energy conversion and applications in energy conservation and efficiency. The book describes recent advances in several key areas of power electronics technology, such as power semiconductor devices, power converter circuits, and control of power electronics. It will feature those technical details and descriptions of specific products and systems so as to fulfill the requirements specified in this volume. An increasing reliance on electricity presents significant challenges for utilities, state-level decision makers, and other stakeholders, who must improve reliability and resilience while cost-effectively managing the fundamental changes required to meet the needs of a low-carbon, digital economy. The electric power system is currently undergoing significant changes in the sources we rely on to generate electricity, the means by which we receive electricity, and even in the ways we consume electricity. This book focuses on the research, development, demonstration, and deployment needs to develop a modern electric power system.

The subject of power electronics is concerned with solid state devices for the control and conversion of electrical power. These silicon devices are designed mainly for switching the transfer current from one part of an electrical circuit to another. Power electronics has a wide range of applications from the small systems used in electrical appliances to very large systems for the supply and distribution of electricity. Although it can be difficult to completely define where the boundary lies between electronics and power electronics, this resource succeeds at breaking down the discipline. Containing the useful concepts and building blocks that go into making a power converter operate successfully, this book provides a description of the characteristics of different types of power semiconductor devices and their application to power converter circuits. Applications to power transmission, electric drives, and medical equipment are included to illustrate the wide range of power electronics in both small and high power circuits.
