Description

For use at either the upper-division undergraduate or graduate level. An understanding of basic power system analysis is the only prerequisite necessary to comprehend fully the material presented in this book. Can be used in dedicated course on industrial power; a special topics course; a professional short course; or as a supplement to a traditional power systems course. Industrial Power Distribution provides a broad overview of electricity utilization in the industrial environment. This book serves as both an introductory textbook and a comprehensive reference. Based on over 20 years of experience in electric power system design and analysis, the author strikes a careful balance between application and theory, and provides insight to answer "why" instead of just "how."show more

Back cover copy

This book provides a broad overview of electricity utilization in the industrial environment. "Industrial Power Distribution" serves as both an introductory textbook and a comprehensive reference. Based on over 20 years of experience in electric power system design and analysis, author Ralph E. Fehr III strikes a careful balance between application and theory, and provides insight to answer "why" instead of just "how." Features include: references to standards, codes, and design practicesextensive examination of transformer connectionsconcise yet thorough coverage of short circuit analysispractical guide to raceway designin-depth exploration of ladder logicintroduction to power quality issues Each chapter concludes with questions to verify the comprehension of key concepts and problems to check the ability to perform realistic power system design and analysis.show more

About Ralph E. Fehr

Ralph Fehr received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the Pennsylvania State University in 1983 and the M.E. degree in electrical engineering (power) from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1987. He has worked in the generation engineering field, designing power distribution and control systems for nuclear and fossil-fired power plants. Mr. Fehr also has worked for electric utilities for more than 15 years in the operations, planning, and design areas, including transmission, distribution, and substation engineering. Teaching has always been an important aspect of Mr. Fehr's career. On an adjunct basis, he has taught courses ranging from computer operating systems to mathematics to power system analysis for several institutions, including the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque, St. Petersburg Junior College, and the University of South Florida at Tampa. Since 1996, he also has taught a review course for candidates for the professional engineer examination through the Florida Engineering Society. Mr. Fehr is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and is a registered professional engineer in New Mexico and Florida. His biography is published in Who's Who in Science and Engineering.show more
