About this book

This handbook offers a comprehensive source for electrical power professionals. It covers all elementary topics related to the design, development, operation and management of power systems, and provides an insight from worldwide key players in the electrical power systems industry.

Edited by a renowned leader and expert in Power Systems, the book highlights international professionals’ longstanding experiences and addresses the requirements of practitioners but also of newcomers in this field in finding a solution for their problems.

The structure of the book follows the physical structure of the power system from the fundamentals through components and equipment to the overall system. In addition the handbook covers certain horizontal matters, for example "Energy fundamentals", "High voltage engineering", and "High current and contact technology" and thus intends to become the major one-stop reference for all issues related to the electrical power system.
