Power system engineering largely focuses on steady state analysis.
main areas of power system engineering are power flow studies and fault studies
both steady statetechnologies. But the world is largely transient, and power systems are always subject to timevarying and short lived signals. This technical report concerns several important topics in transientanalyses of power systems.The leading chapter deals with a new analytical tool
for power system transients.Flicker and electric are furnace transients are discussed in Chapters
dealswith transients from shunt capacitor switching. The concluding chapters deal with transformerinrush current and non simultaneous pole closures of circuit breakers.This report was prepared by the students in
at Purdue University. When
firstcame to Purdue in 1965, Professor El
Abiad was asking for student term projects which wereturned into technical reports.
have 'borrowed' this idea and for many years we have producedtechnical reports from the power systems courses. The students get practice in writing reports, andthe reader is able to get an idea of the coverage of our courses.
think that the students have donea good job on the subject of transients in power systems.
