About this book:-
Book Name:- Electric power systems by alexandra von meier
Author Name:- Alexandra von meier
- This book is intended to bridge the gap between formal engineering texts and more popularly accessible descriptions of electric power technology. I discovered this gap as a graduate student struggling to understand power systems—especially transmission and distribution systems—which had always fascinated me but which now invited serious study in the context of research on implementing solar energy.
Although I had studied physics as an undergraduate, I found the subject of power systems difficult and intimidating.
- The available literature seemed to fall into two categories: easy-to-read, qualitative descriptions of the electric grid for the layperson, on the one hand, and highly technical books and papers, on the other hand, written for professionals and electrical engineering majors. The second category had the information I needed, but was guarded by a layer of impenetrable phasor diagrams and other symbolism that obviously required a special sort of initiation.
- I was extremely fortunate to have access to some of the most highly respected scholars in the field at the University of California, Berkeley, who were also generous, patient, and gifted teachers. Thus I survived Leon Chua’s formidable course on circuit analysis, followed by two semesters of power engineering with Felix Wu.
This curriculum hardly made me an expert, but it did enable me to decipher the
language of the academic and professional literature and identify the issues relevant
to my work.
