Editorial Reviews


?This book succeeds in providing a comprehensive textbook on HVDC system design, planning, and application issues. A wide range of subjects including power electronics, power systems. substation design, and control system design are covered.? IEEE Power & Energy Magazine, Jan/Feb 2010)

From the Back Cover

HVDC is a critical solution to several major problems encountered when trying to maintain systemic links and quality in large-scale renewable energy environments. HDVC can resolve a number of issues, including voltage stability of AC power networks, reducing fault current, and optimal management of electric power, ensuring the technology will play an increasingly important role in the electric power industry.

To address the pressing need for an up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of the subject, Kim, Sood, Jang, Lim, and Lee have collaborated to produce this key text and reference. Combining classroom-tested materials from North America and Asia,HVDC Transmission compactly summarizes the latest research results, and includes the insights of experts from power systems, power electronics, and simulation backgrounds. The authors walk readers through basic theory and practical applications, while also providing the broader historical context and future development of HVDC technology.

  • Presents case studies covering basic and advanced HVDC deployments headed by world-renowned experts
  • Demonstrates how to design, analyze, and maintain HVDC systems in the field
  • Provides updates on new HVDC technologies, such as active power filters, PWM, VSC, and 800 KV systems
  • Rounds out readers' understanding with chapters dedicated to the key areas of simulation and main circuit design
  • Introduces wind power system interconnection with HVDC
  • Arms readers with an understanding of future HVDC trends

Balancing theoretical instruction with practical application , HVDC Transmission delivers comprehensive working knowledge to power utility engineers, power transmission researchers, and advanced undergraduates and postgraduates in power engineering programs. The book is also a useful reference for engineers and students focused on closely related areas such as renewable energy and power system planning.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the better books on HVDC. The organization and choice of topics to present are particularly good. Along with the topics such as how inverters work or what harmonics are produced by them which are found in most HVDC books this one also has some topics such as insulation coordination not found in other books. The description of major HVDC projects around the world is also unusually good.

The only book I would consider better than this one is Kimbark and even there the choice isn't obvious. Kimbark is decades old at this point so for some topics quite out-dated. It is hard to beat Kimbark for quality of writing though.

The only complaints I have so far is that: the index is too short often missing completely the most relevant pages on the topic I am looking for; and the sourcing isn't up to what you would find in an academic paper(which is hardly unusual for a text book), while they list references at the end of every chapter they don't do in line references which would allow you to easily find the source for any information.
