Format: Hardcover
This book is a practical book with many concrete information. For exemple the capacity in an high voltage power station or the author explain in very good details what happens during a fault in a circuit breaker. The only point that i find is not so positive is that the solutions manual is not to buy. I use this book for understanding any situations in the power plant.

One of the most notable features of Greenwoods text is he starts with the basics of transient electrical circuit theory and builds up chapter by chapter to the most difficult and misunderstood cases of power system transients. Especially appealing to a practicing power engineer is his dual slant on problem analysis. He not only demonstrates a mastery for the sometimes nasty mathematical analysis of transient problems, he shows his years of practical experience with logical physical explanations that reduce complex problems to several simple circuits problems. I definitely recommend this text for power system engineers interested in the transient response of power systems and how it affects all types of power equipment.

Great book on transients Oct. 2 2009
By C. R. Bush - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book presents the complex subject of power system transients in a clear and easy to follow manor with a lot of examples. It's a bummer that this book is so expensive, but it is indeed worth the price (How much is having an understanding of exactly what is going on during non-steady-state conditions worth to you?). These concepts can also be applied to the analysis of other circuits (i.e. switching transients in power electronics circuits).

Excellent reference book May 17 2009
By Dimitrios Thiakos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book that covers a lot of ground. It also a lot of challenging problems that really test your understanding of the material. The material is fun to learn, as Greenwood tries to convey the physical phenomema at work behind the mathematics. He tries to give the student an intuitive feel for what's going on. It also covers fun topics such as lighting, as well as modeling of various parasitic parameters in a power system. An excellent reference book to have on your shelf.

The best book on Planet! April 19 2014
By Ahmad A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is magnificent and so beautifully written. It is NOT for beginners in any case. Greenwood sometimes omits some details and you will spend a great of time understanding all the concepts in the book. This is a must have for power engineers.
