This comprehensive book is designed both for postgraduate students in power systems/energy systems engineering and a one-year course for senior undergraduate students of electrical engineering pursuing courses on power systems. The text gives a systematic exposition of topics such as modelling of power system components, load flow, automatic load frequency control, economic operation, voltage control and stability, study of faulted power systems, and optimal power flow. Besides giving a detailed discussion on the basic principles and practices, the text provides computer-based examples to illustrate the topics discussed. What makes the text unique is that it deals with the practice of computer for power system operation and control. This book also brings together the diverse aspects of power system operation and control and is a practical hands-on guide to theoretical developments and to the application of advanced methods in solving operational and control problems of electric power systems. The book should therefore be of immense benefit to the industry professionals and researchers as well.

Modeling and Control of a Large Nuclear Reactor

Control analysis and design of large nuclear reactors requires a suitable mathematical model representing the steady state and dynamic behavior of the reactor with reasonable accuracy. This task is, however, quite challenging because of several complex dynamic phenomena existing in a reactor. Quite often, the models developed would be of prohibitively large order, non-linear and of complex structure not readily amenable for control studies. Moreover, the existence of simultaneously occurring dynamic variations at different speeds makes the mathematical model susceptible to numerical ill-conditioning, inhibiting direct application of standard control techniques. This monograph introduces a technique for mathematical modeling of large nuclear reactors in the framework of multi-point kinetics, to obtain a comparatively smaller order model in standard state space form thus overcoming these difficulties. It further brings in innovative methods for controller design for systems exhibiting multi-time-scale property, with emphasis on three-time-scale systems.
