Modern Electricity Systems

A welcome textbook instructing on many current aspects of energy generation, transmission, distribution, and consumption

The importance of a well-informed group of individuals in charge of energy production and use is essential to create a sustainable and greener tomorrow. Technologies and costs are rapidly changing, and environmental goals widely debated in this book. The future of energy is at a crossroads. In addition, energy and technology poverty affects as much as 25% of the world's population. Having the correct set of "tools"--a basic understanding of modern electrical systems--is essential, not just for engineers but for our leaders and decision-makers.

With decades of experience in industry and academia behind them, the team of authors in Modern Electricity Systems offers a "toolbox" from which the reader will learn what is essential to make informed decisions. As such, this textbook provides an introduction to the fundamentals of how electricity is generated, financed, regulated, rationed, and stored - with consideration not just of the current status of these issues but a glance at what the next decade may hold. Without this basic level of comprehension, the growing global impact and social issues can be discussed and advocated for, but real change in this sector can only be achieved through understanding the systems.

Modern Electricity Systems readers will also find:
* Support to create a course on energy transition and energy policy for sustainable development
* International modern day case studies, that represent the most current and essential topics, to illustrate key concepts, as well as ones focused on the United States
* Sample problem sets that bring together essential ideas learned from each chapter
* A textbook written by a team of working professionals with international experience in real-world applications of policy, engineering, and operations

Modern Electricity Systems is a helpful reference for graduate and advanced undergraduate students and researchers, policymakers, environmentalists, humanitarians, business leaders, and decision-makers in all three sectors of electricity operations, engineering, and policy matters.

The authors have leveraged their combined 70 years of experience in the energy sector to develop a book that is unique among treatments of modern electric energy systems. It integrates engineering methods and concepts, financial requirements, business perspectives, policy drivers, and social implications to provide readers with a deep and broad understanding of the electric power industry in the US and around the world. The book begins by addressing basics of power systems engineering and engineering economics and state-of-the-art technical developments together with the influence of current events.

It provides an excellent treatment of wholesale energy markets both in the US and abroad, together with fundamentals of regulatory policy, including how policy is shaped by various institutions. A technically sound and very readable description of "how does the power system work" initiates new learners, while a treatment of recent changes, including high renewable growth, offers substantive insights for seasoned experts. Advanced energy market concepts related to ancillary services, reliability, investment, and capacity markets are clearly explained.

The book appropriately concludes by defining energy poverty and describing the need for nations worldwide to direct policy formation towards addressing this complex subject. This book is a must-read for all energy sector engineers and policy makers. It is also an exceptionally useful book for university coursework at both the senior undergraduate and graduate levels.

It is a unique book that holistically brings together the pressing issues in modern electricity systems. The authors begin with fundaments of electrical engineering, economics, and tradeoffs made in real-life planning and operations. The subsequent chapters explain the role of people and institutions, energy poverty, the actual workings of power systems, wholesale, retail, and local energy markets, their relevance now, and their future direction. I especially liked the diversity of global examples in this book. For example, the book discusses Nepali power cuts and their solution in Chapters 3 and 10, highlights the importance of local innovation "City Safari" in Chapter 10, and provides examples/exercise in investment in renewable hydrogen in Chapters 5 and 7. In all, they introduce technical 'Tools' to address opportunities and issues around modern electrical systems.

Their combined international, diverse experience is the secrete sauce for making this book readable and timely. It is a must-read for engineers, policymakers, managers, and other professionals working in the electrical energy sector.
