The cable structures, methods to derive the parameters of the equivalent circuits for cables, and analysis methods for calculating electromagnetic transients in power systems, and the characteristics of electromagnetic transients in cable systems, are all covered in this state of the art reference written by the leading pioneer in the field. Ametani is a distinguished author with a lifetime experience in the field of transient modeling in power systems, and the technical merit is thus unquestionable. The book will provide researchers and students wishing to refresh their knowledge in the subject area with an in-depth understanding of the basic concepts of power cable modeling. This involves the development of mathematical models of cables based on the true distributive nature of both the cable series impedance and shunt admittance parameters, concomitant with a consideration of the frequency dependence of these parameters and their impact on the cable propagation constant and its surge impedance. A comparison between simulated results and practical results is made for the purposes of validation of the modeling techniques developed.All the fundamental concepts of accurate modeling of transients, particularly in AC cables, are very well covered in the contents and the validation procedures of the models developed are included through comparison of simulated results with practical/measured results. The contents also include many of the emerging issues associated with cable system transients in distributed resources such as wind farms and solar power plants.
