Power Quality in Power Systems and Electrical Machines, Second Edition helps readers understand the causes and effects of power quality problems and provides techniques to mitigate these problems. Power quality is a measure of deviations in supply systems and their components, and affects all connected electrical and electronic equipment, including computers, TV monitors, and lighting. In this book analytical and measuring techniques are applied to power quality problems as they occur in central power stations and distributed generation such as alternative power systems. Provides theoretical and practical insight into power quality problems; most books available are either geared to theory or practice only Problems and solutions at the end of each chapter dealing with practical applications Includes application examples implemented in SPICE, Mathematica, and MATLABAt the distribution level about 13% of the total generated power consists of losses due to active and reactive current components. ... Therefore, it becomes necessary to design an approach that will optimize the solution at minimal cost. Analyses of this chapter are restricted to the application of shunt capacitor banks for reactive power compensation of distribution systems under sinusoidal as well asanbsp;...
