Power System Operation 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Power System Operation has been an excellent resource for me for nearly 20 years. As an author of two books on power system planning and technical communications, I can tell you the authors have done a fine job of giving readers what they need in a concise and reader-friendly format. I also referred to the book when I was a professional power system operator for a major utility and then have used it in my consulting practice. The only major topic that I would like to see covered in the book in greater detail is communications in the control center environment - how system operators communicate with each other and with field personnel under routine and emergency conditions and the types of documentation required in the control center.
