Electric Power Systems
June 2008, Wiley-ISTE
Split into two parts (the first covering the operation and control of electric power systems and the second the stability and defence of electric power systems), this book gathers together contributions from numerous well-known European specialists in academia and the electrical industry and will be an illuminating read for those involved in this field or who have some knowledge of the fundamental notions.

Chapter 2. Evolution of European power systems facing new constraints: impact of distributed power generation (Michel Crappe).
Chapter 3. Planning methods for production and transmission of electrical energy (Jean-Marie Delince).
Chapter 4. Quality of electricity supply (Alain Robert).
Chapter 5. Applications of synchronized phasor measurements to large interconnected electric power systems (Nouredine Hadjsaid, Didier Georges).
Part 2: Stability and defence of electric power systems.
Chapter 6. Voltage instability (Thierry van Cutsem).
Chapter 7. Transient stability: evaluation and control (Daniel Ruiz Vega, Mania Pavella).
