About this Textbook

This book integrates analytical and digital solutions through Alternative Transients Program (ATP) software, recognized for its use all over the world in academia and in the electric power industry, utilizing a didactic approach appropriate for graduate students and industry professionals alike.

This book presents an approach to solving singular-function differential equations representing the transient and steady-state dynamics of a circuit in a structured manner, and without the need for physical reasoning to set initial conditions to zero plus (0+). It also provides, for each problem presented, the exact analytical solution as well as the corresponding digital solution through a computer program based on the Electromagnetics Transients Program (EMTP).

Of interest to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as industry practitioners, this book fills the gap between classic works in the field of electrical circuits and more advanced works in the field of transients in electrical power systems, facilitating a full understanding of digital and analytical modeling and solution of transients in basic circuits.

About the authors

Professor José Carlos Goulart de Siqueira gained his mechanical and electrical engineering degree in 1966, from the Institute Electrotechnical of Itajuba. He taught at the same institution, renamed as Itajuba Federal School of Engineering – EFEI, and was Full Professor there from 1975 until his retirement in 2011. He led the process of transformation of EFEI in Federal University of Itajuba – UNIFEI in 2002, being named its first Rector. He also taught part-time for nearly two decades at the National Telecommunications Institute – INATEL in Santa Rita do Sapucai, MG. Since his retirement, he has served as Volunteer Professor at UNIFEI. Professor Goulart has received numerous honors from alumni and from various institutions, notably the Santos Dumont and Inconfidencia medals.

Professor Benedito Donizeti Bonatto gained his B.Sc. from the Federal School of Engineering of Itajuba in 1991, his M.Sc. from the State University of Campinas in 1995 and his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia in 2001. He now works as Associate Professor at UNIFEI, where he has been since 2007. He was Visiting Professor at the University of British Columbia in 2013, and he has just finished Visiting Professor position at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain. He has published over 140 conference papers, a book chapter and a book and is Senior Member of the IEEE. 

Reviews

The idea of combining the analytical solution of transients in electrical circuits with the digital simulation allowed by the ATP program is interesting. The number of solved and proposed examples is a plus for the book. The editor is experienced in the subject.

I believe the book fills an important gap between the analytical solution of traditional electrical circuits with the digital solution using a well established tool (the ATP program) in the power engineering community. It may be particularly important when teaching some basic power system transients that can be simulated with linear networks and lumped parameters.

Professor Fernando Augusto Moreira, Federal University of Bahia

The author and editor have long experiences in teaching the courses related to the proposed topic.  This book can be used in courses related to electric circuit analysis and also partly in power system transients.
