Non-conventional & conventional methods of generating electric energy are discussed. Also covered are economics of such generation, different methods of distribution, steady state and transient state characteristics of various electric drives including various methods of heating and welding. Also included are solved examples, practice problems and multiple choice questions.
The book provides a clear, systematic and exhaustive exposition of various aspects of Generation Distribution and Utilization of Electrical Energy. The modern distribution network is spread over a large geographical area and hence the concept of distribution automation has been discussed so as to operate the system with a higher index of reliability and more economically. Various aspects of utilization viz. electric heating and welding, illumination engineering, and electrolytic processes are included. Modern trends in electric traction, viz. the role of SCADA in electric traction and automation in electric traction are discussed in great detail.
