Preface – Power System Analysis


It gives me immense pleasure and satisfaction to present this textbook on Power System Analysis to cater to the needs of B.Tech. electrical engineering students.

The book has been written in a lucid manner for the benefit of beginner students. The basics are covered well and expounded with a view to assist teachers in helping the student to assimilate the essence of the subject. Novel techniques have been adopted wherever required to drive home the complex aspects without compromising on standard and quality.

Questions and problems from previous years’ examinations of JNTU (Hyderabad, Anantapur and Kakinada) have been incorporated to enable students to sail through their term-end tests with ease. The book also includes objective questions from IES, GATE and other competitive examinations to empower students preparing for competitive examinations. Solved problems provided in each chapter illustrate and reinforce the concepts explained therein. A few MATLAB programs are also given to help final-year students with their project works.

I welcome constructive criticisms and suggestions for improving the content and presentation of this text. These will be gratefully acknowledged.
