A quick scan of any bookstore, library, or online bookseller will produce a multitude of books covering power systems. However, few, if any, are totally devoted to power distribution engineering, and none of them are true textbooks. Filling this vacuum in the power system engineering literature, Electric Power Distribution System Engineering broke new ground.Written in the classic, self-learning style of the original, Electric Power Distribution Engineering, Third Edition is updated and expanded with:
- Over 180 detailed numerical examples
- More than 170 end-of-chapter problems
- New MATLAB® applications
- Distributed generation
- Renewable energy (e.g., wind and solar energies)
- Modern energy storage systems
- Smart grids and their applications

Praise for the Third Edition:
"This classic book is now updated to include new chapters on distributed generation, renewable energy (wind and solar), modem energy-storage systems, and smart grids. … Besides the wealth of theoretical information and design details, the book is loaded with practical information useful for the working distribution engineer (e.g., ground grid resistance, power meter connections, wire ampacity, and much more). The appendix is an excellent resource for learning many of the essential tools used by distribution engineers (i.e., per unit calculations, impedance tables, symbols used in schematics, and definitions). For academic use, questions at the end of each chapter provide the teacher with easy homework assignments. Whether you are a professor teaching power engineering looking for a course textbook or a working power engineer, this textbook provides a wealth of knowledge and information useful for the power distribution engineer."
―John J. Shea, Eaton Corporation, Moon Township, Pennsylvania, USA, from IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, May/June 2015
―Nejila Parspour, Professor für Electrical Energy Conversion, University of Stuttgart, Germany "This text provides a very accessible overview of topics in distribution engineering, from fundamental design principles to the transition to a smarter, more active distribution grid. … The material is particularly accessible for those students transferring to power engineering from other engineering disciplines."
―Dr. James Pilgrim, University of Southampton, UK
Praise for the Previous Edition:
"An outstanding technical reference for power engineering students and working professionals having broad overage with excellent insight into the practical aspects of power system distribution engineering… this is suitable for a senior and graduate textbook in power engineering. Well worth the investment."
―IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine

The book contains the full theory necessary for the electrical distribution networks (e.g the simplified voltage drop calculations which are not included in many books about power systems) but also the real applications (e.g. real transformer connections and capacitors installations). I believe that one of the reasons that this book is great is that one of its references is a book written by real engineers back from 1965, when the engineers knew how to make real calculations by hand and not by software. If you solve the examples and the exercises , you really feel that you deal with 'actual distribution engineering'. I enjoy it.
