The book deals with the application of digital computers for power system analysis
including fault analysis, load flows, stability assessment, economic operation and
power system control. The book also covers extensively modeling of various power
system components. The required mathematical background is presented at the
appropriate sections in the book. A sincere attempt has been made to include a
number of solved examples in every chapter, so that the students get an insight into
the problems in practical power systems. Results from simulation are presented,
wherever applicable. The simulations have been carried out in MATLAB. The book
covers more than a semester course. It can be used for UG courses on power system
analysis, computer applications in power system analysis, modeling of power
system components, and power system operation and control. It is also useful to
postgraduate students of power engineering.
