Electrical distribution: "Power Grid Operations" book now available

Electrical distribution Power Grid Operations

“Power Grid Operations” is written about the electrical power grid and how it is operated. Increasing your knowledge of power distribution, this book offers the reader an understandable explanation of what is occurring every second of every day on the electric power grid. There are many books about the electrical power grid that are explanations suited for advanced electrical engineering students. In fact, several of these books are listed in one section of this book. But this is the only explanation you will find that will appeal to a large audience from the guy next door mowing his lawn, to the guy at the local Elk’s Club sipping a draft beer, to those men and women in the industry who want to know more about how their job function fits in with all the other parts of the grid. It is written using more than 200 years of accumulated power grid operations experience.

Because the book is not written by an engineer, it does not contain the typical engineering language you would expect to find in other more technical books related to the power grid. However, you will still learn a great deal of what a power grid operator does and the industry as a whole. After completing the book, you will have a better understanding of various subjects, such as: historical blackouts, what the new smart grid technology means to the everyday person, how wholesale electric markets operate, what the power grid operators are looking at, the current electrical issues in Japan, and many other items of interest. If you’ve ever been curious what it costs you to run some of the appliances in your home, well then, you are looking at the right book, because that is in here as well. The book, which is $26.49, is enjoyable to read and will almost certainly make you laugh a few times.
