The electric power engineering handbook


Harlow, an engineer who consults with the power industry, compiles 25 chapters for engineers who are familiar with the basic physics and applications, or have a working knowledge of power transformers, on electric power transformer engineering. Industry engineers from North America, Europe, and Brazil explain the concepts and mathematics of power transformers; each of its 10 embodiments, including power, distribution, phase-shifting, rectifier, dry-type, and instrument transformers, as well as step-voltage regulators, constant-voltage transformers, and reactors; and ancillary topics: insulated media, electrical bushings, tap changers and smart intelligent controls, loading and thermal performance, connections and testing, load-tap-change control and transformer paralleling, protection, causes and effects of sound levels, transient-voltage response of coils and windings, problem and failure investigation, online monitoring of liquid-immersed transformers, the US equipment standards and processes, installation, and maintenance. Chapters have been updated and expanded with new and updated material for this edition, which adds a new chapter on transformers for use with wind turbine generators and distributed photovoltaic arrays.
