Transients in electrical systems; analysis, recognition, and mitigation.


Transients in electrical systems; analysis, recognition, and mitigation.

Das, J. C.



722 pages




Covering theory and practice related to all transient frequencies, ranging from 0.1 Hz to 50 MHz, this work can serve as a textbook for upper undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a practical guide for practicing engineers. At the undergraduate level, the subject of transients is covered under circuit theory. The book explains how to identify the origin of disturbances in electrical systems and analyze them for mitigation and control. Coverage encompasses transients that affect power system stability, and transients found in transmission lines, transformers, rotating machines, electronic equipment, and gas insulated substations. Learning features include worked examples and detailed equations, plus b&w charts and graphs on every page, and about 60 pages of reference appendices. Das is an electrical power system consultant.
