Series capacitor banks offer unique benefits in electric power systems, particularly in transmission. To engineer, design, and produce reactive compensation systems is a complex process that involves multiple engineering disciplines.
The idea for this unique book grew out of discussions between the authors and several ABB engineers, who are specialists in the design and application of series capacitors.
The authors researched and wrote this book to provide power system engineers with a comprehensive resource on the subject of series compensation. The readers for whom this book has been written include power system planning engineers, operations engineers, managers, consultants, university professors and graduate-level students, and others who share an interest in this specialized field of electrical engineering.
This book is unique in that it brings together information from diverse sources for the purpose of providing a comprehensive overview of pertinent mathematical models, practical applications, and an assessment of decades of experience by utilities that have used series compensation strategies. This 595-page book contains: more than 400 equations and more than 300 figures including plots, charts, graphs, and drawings. The equations and figures serve to explain the mathematics and analytical approaches that are fundamental to evaluating needs and establishing specifications for series capacitor banks.
Citing the example of a representative North American long-distance transmission network, the book takes the reader through the process of determining the specifications for building a series capacitor bank. For engineers who wish to reproduce the results of the computer simulations and analytical models incorporated in the book, complete reference data is included in the appendices.
In the concluding chapter, the authors consider future trends, including the emergence of new technologies impacting the design and use of series compensation.

The book is a classic in the literature in this niche of stability and reliability in electric power network planning.About the Author:
Paul M. Anderson (coauthor) received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. from Iowa State University in 1949, 1958, and 1961, respectively. He has been in the discipline of electric power systems for 45 years. Dr. Anderson has worked for utilities and as a consultant, but most of his career was as a university professor of electrical engineering with an interest in power systems. His technical interests include power system mathematical modeling, system dynamic performance, reliability, and mathematical analysis. He is the author of several graduate-level books on power systems.
Richard G. Farmer (coauthor) received his B.S. from Colorado State University in 1952 and his M.S. from Arizona State University in 1964. He has been in the electric power engineering field for 40 years. He was employed by one utility for 29 years where one of his major responsibilities was the application of series capacitors, including the analysis and control of interaction of series capacitors with turbine-generators. He has been an adjunct professor at Arizona State University for 28 years. He is the author or coauthor of numerous papers on power system stability and subsynchronous resonance.
