About the book 

This is the third in the series on ‘Electrical Power Capacitors’. The previous books in the series covered requirement and specifications used in the design and manufacture of capacitors, and the accessories for high tension capacitor banks.

Reactive Power Management brings into focus this subject which has assumed importance due to high transmission and distribution losses. Divided into four parts, the book covers the subject in its entirety and enables engineers understand the why, how and what to expect of the problems associated with reactive power.

Part I: basic concepts and related topics like quality of supply, cost of reactive power, poser tariffs and market forces are included.
Part II: Sources which cause, and equipment and transmission lines which suppress, reactive are covered.
Part III: Latest developments in the transmission networks, particularly FACTS are discussed.
Part IV: Reactive and energy management of residential as well as large industrial consumers like steel, cement, petroleum, paper, mining, textiles, etc. are covered.

Richly illustrated with examples, the book will be useful to power utilities, electricity boards and diverse industries, including power, petroleum, cement, glass, coal, etc.
