CAIRO BOOKS's Description
A practical, hands-on approach to power distribution system reliability
As power distribution systems age, the frequency and duration of consumer
interruptions will increase significantly. Now more than ever, it is crucial
for students and professionals in the electrical power industries to have a
solid understanding of designing the reliable and cost-effective utility,
industrial, and commercial power distribution systems needed to maintain life
activities (e.g., computers, lighting, heating, cooling, etc.).
This books fills the void in the literature by providing readers with
everything they need to know to make the best design decisions for new and
existing power distribution systems, as well as to make quantitative "cost vs.
reliability" trade-off studies. Topical coverage includes:
Reliability analysis of complex network configurations
Designing reliability into industrial and commercial power systems
Application of zone branch reliability methodology
Equipment outage statistics
Deterministic planning criteria
Customer interruption for cost models for load-point reliability assessment
Isolation and restoration procedures
And much more
Each chapter begins with an introduction and ends with a conclusion and a list
of references for further reading. Additionally, the book contains actual
utility and industrial power system design problems worked out with real
examples, as well as additional problem sets and their solutions. Power
Distribution System Reliability is essential reading for practicing engineers,
researchers, technicians, and advanced undergraduate and graduate students in
electrical power industries.
