EHV-AC HVDC: Transmission and Distribution Engineering

S Rao (Author)
This book presents basic principles, theory and background of EHV-AC, HVDC Transmission and Distribution with the Help of up-to-date terms, definitions, tables, description of modern equipment and practical aspects alongwith Large number of typical solved examples which has been spread lover 58 chapters & covered under six major sections.
Section I : Covers the principles and practices of HVDC transmission system and types of HVDC systems, AC Harmonic Filters, Earth Return HVDC switching arrangements, HVDC Insulation-Coordination, Surge protection by ZnO Arresters, Reactive power requirements, Station layout Control and Protection of bipolar HVDC systems, HVDC Circuit breakers for Metallic Return Transfer etc.
Section II : Covers HVDC Terminal Equipment including Convertor-Transformers, Smoothing Reactor, Thyristor Valves, DCCT, DCVT, Testing of HVDC equipment, Computer Aided System studies etc
Section III : Deals with Engineering aspects of EHV-AC Transmission including Power Transfer Ability, Voltage Control and Reactive Power Compensation, Corona, RI, TVI, ROW, AN etc. The Types of transmission towers, the configurations, design has been covered with practical data. The design & constructional aspects about bundle conductors, string insulators, Project Planning, Substation Planning, Operation, Maintenance with the theoretical aspects regarding voltage profile of long AC lines, Reactive Power Compensation SVS, Series Compensation Schemes, etc., are also covered. Also EHV-AC and HVDV Cables of various types is given towards the end of section.
Section IV : Deals with Equations and calculations for medium and long AC lines. The fundamentals of line parameters, network modelling, basic calculation techniques have been covered alongwith the application of nominal, T and Equivalent, T networks, ABCD constants, Power Circle Diagram and Rigorous Solution for long lines.
Section V : Covers Modern Distribution Systems, Rural Distribution and Distribution System Automation in detail.
Section VI : Gives recent advances in Transmission, Distribution and network Automation and Capacitor Commutated HVDC Converters for 21st Century alongwith Intelligent Substations etc.
Apart from this, the book covers Wave Equations for long lines, concept of Handing waves on long AC lines; Tele-control and Communication Systems in Network; Load Frequency and Voltage Control; Control of Reactive Power flow of long EHV-AC line and Dynamic Control of Power Swings.
