Electric Power and Energy Distribution Systems

Provides a comprehensive introduction to today’s electric power distribution systems, perfect for advanced students and industry professionals

Due to growth of renewable resources and advances in information technology, electric power distribution systems have undergone significant changes over the past fifteen years. The expansion of technologies such as consumer rooftop solar panels, electric vehicles, smart energy storage, and automated metering infrastructure make planning and operating power distribution systems challenging. Integration of advanced technologies at the distribution level is critical for realizing higher efficiency, reliability, resiliency, and flexibility.

Electric Power and Energy Distribution Systems: Models, Methods, and Applications provides comprehensive coverage of the key aspects of conventional and emerging distribution systems, including modeling, methodologies, analysis, planning, economics, distribution automation, reliability, grounding, protection, power quality, and distributed energy resources. Written by experts with decades of experience in academia and industry, this textbook integrates theory and practice to present a well-balanced treatment of topics relevant to modern electric power distribution systems. Detailed chapters address modeling of distribution system components, load characteristics and optimal selection of devices, microgrids and other types of energy resources, the challenges associated with the planning and operation of distribution systems, and more.

  • Covers a wide range of both legacy and contemporary issues supported by rigorous analysis and practical insights
  • Provides in-depth examination of outage management, voltage control, system restoration, and other operational functions
  • Features real-world case studies of distribution automation functions in urban and rural power systems
  • Discusses technologies for distributed energy resources (DER) with a focus on wind, solar, and battery storage
  • Describes fundamental economics in the context of power distribution systems, such as the impact of tariffs on selling electricity to consumers of different types
  • Explains the architecture of distribution system protection, including fuses, reclosers, overcurrent relays, and grounding practices

The ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate courses, Electric Power and Energy Distribution Systems: Models, Methods, and Applications is also an excellent reference for professionals with limited prior knowledge about distribution systems.
