&PREFACEThis book is intended to bridge the gap between formal engineering texts and morepopularly accessible descriptions of electric power technology. I discovered thisgap as a graduate student struggling to understand power systems—especially transmission and distribution systems—which had always fascinated me but which nowinvited serious study in the context of research on implementing solar energy.Although I had studied physics as an undergraduate, I found the subject of powersystems difficult and intimidating.The available literature seemed to fall into two categories: easy-to-read, qualitative descriptions of the electric grid for the layperson, on the one hand, and highlytechnical books and papers, on the other hand, written for professionals andelectrical engineering majors. The second category had the information I needed,but was guarded by a layer of impenetrable phasor diagrams and other symbolismthat obviously required a special sort of initiation.I was extremely fortunate to have access to some of the most highly respectedscholars in the field at the University of California, Berkeley, who were also generous, patient, and gifted teachers. Thus I survived Leon Chua’s formidable course oncircuit analysis, followed by two semesters of power engineering with Felix Wu.This curriculum hardly made me an expert, but it did enable me to decipher thelanguage of the academic and professional literature and identify the issues relevantto my work.I enjoyed another marvelous learning opportunity through a research projectbeginning in 1989 at several large nuclear and fossil-fueled steam generationplants, where our team interviewed the staff as part of a study of “High-ReliabilityOrganizations.” My own subsequent research on power distribution took me into thefield with five U.S. utilities and one in Germany. Aside from the many intriguingthings we learned about the operating culture in these settings, I discovered howclearly the power plant staff could often explain technical concepts about theirworking systems. Their language was characteristically plain and direct, and wasalways guided by practical considerations, such as what this dial tells you, orwhat happens when you push that button.In hindsight, the defining moment for inspiring this book occurred in the Pittsburgcontrol room when I revealed my ignorance about reactive power (just after havingboasted about my physics degree, to the operators’ benign amusement). They generously supplied me with a copy of the plant operating manual, which turned out tocontain the single most lucid and comprehensible explanation of electric generators,xiii

xivPREFACEincluding reactive power, I had seen. That manual proved to me that it is possible towrite about electric power systems in a way that is accessible to audiences who havenot undergone the initiation rites of electrical engineering, but who neverthelesswant to get the real story. This experience suggested there might be other peoplemuch like myself—outside the power industry, but vitally concerned with it—who could benefit from such a practical approach.After finishing my dissertation in 1995, I decided to give it a try: My goal was towrite the book that I would have liked to read as a student six or seven years earlier.Considering that it has taken almost a decade to achieve, this turned out to be a muchmore ambitious undertaking than I imagined at the outset. A guiding principlethroughout my writing process was to assume a minimum of prior knowledgeon the part of the readers while trying to relate as much as possible to their directexperience, thus building a conceptual and intuitive understanding from theground up. I hope the book will serve as a useful reference, and perhaps even as asource of further inspiration for others to study the rich and complex subject ofelectric power.I envision two main audiences for this book. The first consists of students andresearchers who are learning about electric circuits and power system engineeringin an academic setting, and who feel that their understanding would be enhancedby a qualitative, conceptual emphasis to complement the quantitative methodsstressed in technical courses. This audience might include students of diverse backgrounds or differing levels of preparation, perhaps transferring into an engineeringprogram from other disciplines. Such students often need to solidify theirunderstanding of basic information presumed to be second nature for advancedundergraduates in technical fields. As a supplement to standard engineering texts,this volume aims to provide a clear and accessible review of units, definitions,and fundamental physical principles; to explain in words some of the ideas conventionally shown by equations; to contextualize information, showing connectionsamong different topics and pointing out their relevance; and to offer a glimpseinto the practical world of the electric power industry.The second major audience consists of professionals working in and around thepower industry whose educational background may not be in electrical engineering,but who wish to become more familiar with the technical details and the theoreticalunderpinnings of the system they deal with. This group might include analystsand administrators and managers coming from the fields of business, economics,law, or public policy, as well as individuals with technical or multidisciplinarytraining in areas other than power engineering. In view of the scope and importanceof contemporary policy decisions about electricity supply and delivery, both in theUnited States and abroad—from the siting of power generation and transmissionfacilities to market regulation and restructuring—a real need appears for a coherent,general education on the subject of power systems. My hope is that this volume canmake a meaningful contribution.

&CHAPTER 1The Physics of Electricity1.11.1.1BASIC QUANTITIESIntroductionThis chapter describes the quantities that are essential to our understanding of electricity: charge, voltage, current, resistance, and electric and magnetic fields. Moststudents of science and engineering find it very hard to gain an intuitive appreciationof these quantities, since they are not part of the way we normally see and makesense of the world around us. Electrical phenomena have a certain mystique thatderives from the difficulty of associating them with our direct experience, but alsofrom the knowledge that they embody a potent, fundamental force of nature.Electric charge is one of the basic dimensions of physical measurement, alongwith mass, distance, time and temperature. All other units in physics can beexpressed as some combination of these five terms. Unlike the other four,however, charge is more remote from our sensory perception. While we caneasily visualize the size of an object, imagine its weight, or anticipate the durationof a process, it is difficult to conceive of “charge” as a tangible phenomenon.To be sure, electrical processes are vital to our bodies, from cell metabolism tonervous impulses, but we do not usually conceptualize these in terms of electricalquantities or forces. Our most direct and obvious experience of electricity is toreceive an electric shock. Here the presence of charge sends such a strong waveof nervous impulses through our body that it produces a distinct and unique sensation. Other firsthand encounters with electricity include hair that defiantlystands on end, a zap from a door knob, and static cling in the laundry. Yet theseexperiences hardly translate into the context of electric power, where we canwitness the effects of electricity, such as a glowing light bulb or a rotating motor,while the essential happenings take place silently and concealed within pieces ofmetal. For the most part, then, electricity remains an abstraction to us, and werely on numerical and geometric representations—aided by liberal analogies fromother areas of the physical world—to form concepts and develop an intuitionabout it.Electric Power Systems: A Conceptual Introduction, by Alexandra von MeierCopyright # 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.1

21.1.2THE PHYSICS OF ELECTRICITYChargeIt was a major scientific accomplishment to integrate an understanding of electricitywith fundamental concepts about the microscopic nature of matter. Observations ofstatic electricity like those mentioned earlier were elegantly explained by BenjaminFranklin in the late 1700s as follows: There exist in nature two types of a propertycalled charge, arbitrarily labeled “positive” and “negative.” Opposite charges attracteach other, while like charges repel. When certain materials rub together, one type ofcharge can be transferred by friction and “charge up” objects that subsequently repelobjects of the same kind (hair), or attract objects of a different kind (polyester andcotton, for instance).Through a host of ingenious experiments,1 scientists arrived at a model of theatom as being composed of smaller individual particles with opposite charges,held together by their electrical attraction. Specifically, the nucleus of an atom,which constitutes the vast majority of its mass, contains protons with a positivecharge, and is enshrouded by electrons with a negative charge. The nucleus also contains neutrons, which resemble protons, except they have no charge. The electricattraction between protons and electrons just balances the electrons’ natural tendency to escape, which results from both their rapid movement, or kinetic energy,and their mutual electric repulsion. (The repulsion among protons in the nucleusis overcome by another type of force called the strong nuclear interaction, whichonly acts over very short distances.)This model explains both why most materials exhibit no obvious electrical properties, and how they can become “charged” under certain circumstances: The opposite charges carried by electrons and protons are equivalent in magnitude, and whenelectrons and protons are present in equal numbers (as they are in a normal atom),these charges “cancel” each other in terms of their effect on their environment. Thus,from the outside, the entire atom appears as if it had no charge whatsoever; it iselectrically neutral.Yet individual electrons can sometimes escape from their atoms and travel elsewhere. Friction, for instance, can cause electrons to be transferred from one materialinto another. As a result, the material with excess electrons becomes negativelycharged, and the material with a deficit of electrons becomes positively charged(since the positive charge of its protons is no longer compensated). The ability ofelectrons to
