There are good textbooks and bad ones and this one is the latter. Masters attempts to cover too many topics in one book and does a poor job at describing any of these topics in enough detail to be useful. The first chapter starts out with a review of the economics of the power industry.
Our instructor for this section was previously the CFO of a large midwest utility and he cautioned us that some of the data represented in the book was wrong.
He also mentioned that some of the calculations were questionable. So that was the first chapter.
This area of study should not be relegated to a single chapter in a book. If you don't know circuits, I'm pretty sure this overview is frustratingly brief. If you do know circuits you are left to wonder why this chapter is included in the book. As the chapters progress more and more material is introduced in a similar way. If you know physics great, otherwise you are introduced to many complex concepts like valence electrons and pn junctions in 2 to 3 pages, wow.
The problems are the worst, Mr. Masters wants his readers to make large leaps to be able to solve the given problems. He also enjoys asking questions where the data is not in the units described in the text so the reader must first convert the units before starting the problem.
It would seam that in the least, this book would try to show the reader how to convert what one is left to assume are industry standard units for renewable energy from one form to another but this is always left to the reader.
The examples presented are simple, but real-world applicable, including some nice forays into the economics behind the various power systems. I am a grad student focusing on optics and photonics, so power systems are completely new for me.
I can't claim to have finished the book yet, but so far it's been a very comprehensible tool and I have learned a lot. One of the better engineering texts books.
Lots of worked out examples in the book. However like all engineering texts there are a lot of problems in each chapter that are not discussed in text at all. If you're an engineer or an engineering student, this book is worthless.
The math is fleeting and not calculus based, there are very few examples, and it is overall not intended for engineers. Kindle Edition Verified download. Required for course. Considerable attention is paid to the economics of all of these systems.
This edition has been completely rewritten, updated, and reorganized. New material has been presented both in the form of new topics as well as in greater depth in some areas.
The section on the fundamentals of electric power has been enhanced, making this edition a much better bridge to the more advanced courses in power that are returning to many electrical engineering programs. This includes an introduction to phasor notation, more emphasis on reactive power as well as real power, more on power converter and inverter electronics, and more material on generator technologies.
Realizing that many students, as well as professionals, in this increasingly important field may have modest electrical engineering backgrounds, early chapters develop the skills and knowledge necessary to understand these important topics without the need for supplementary materials.
With numerous completely worked examples throughout, the book has been designed to encourage self-instruction. The book includes worked examples for virtually every topic that lends itself to quantitative analysis. Each chapter ends with a problem set that provides additional practice.
