Master practitioner and mentor Khan packed 40 years of experience into this elegant, succinct and authoritative text, giving engineers who want to bring up-to-date techniques to outmoded systems plenty of techniques to plan, design and implement safe and efficient electrical power systems. Khan uses ideas he developed in IEEE courses for practicing engineers to explain system planning from basic design considerations to distribution types and voltage considerations, power system studies, system neutral grounding, power transformers and reactors, instrument transformers, switch gear, circuit breakers, the motor control center, station batteries, application and protection of medium-voltage motors, power and control cables, protection, high-voltage substation design, substation grounding design, electrical aspects of power generation, applications of capacitors, and impact of nonlinear loads on power systems and equipment. With many helpful illustrations and references for each chapter, this is sure to become a classic professional reference.
