A thoroughly revised new edition of the definitive work on power systems best practices In this eagerly awaited new edition, Power Generation, Operation, and Control continues to provide engineers and academics with a complete picture of the techniques used in modern power system operation. Long recognized as the standard reference in the field, the book has been thoroughly updated to reflect the enormous changes that have taken place in the electric power industry since the Second Edition was published seventeen years ago. With an emphasis on both the engineering and economic aspects of energy management, the Third Edition introduces central "terminal" characteristics for thermal and hydroelectric power generation systems, along with new optimization techniques for tackling real-world operating problems. Readers will find a range of algorithms and methods for performing integrated economic, network, and generating system analysis, as well as modern methods for power system analysis, operation, and control. Special features include: State-of-the-art topics such as market simulation, multiple market analysis, contract and market bidding, and other business topics Chapters on generation with limited energy supply, power flow control, power system security, and more An introduction to regulatory issues, renewable energy, and other evolving topics New worked examples and end-of-chapter problems A companion website with additional materials, including MATLAB programs and power system sample data sets Related Resources Instructor View Instructor Companion Site
Gerald Sheblé worked for two different industry suppliers and two consulting firm for power system control centers. He was responsible for writing real-time applications in dispatch, unit commitment, transaction evaluation, probabilistic production costing, and hydro scheduling. He was part of a team that developed the first dispatcher training simulator. He joined Auburn University (1990) to conduct research in power system, space power, and electric auction market research. He joined Iowa State University to conduct research in the interaction of markets and power system operation. His academic research has continued to center on the action of the markets based on the physical operation of the power system. He is a Fellow of the IEEE. He passed away in 2021.
