As the advent of the Smart Grid revolutionizes how homeowners and businesses purchase and manage power, electricity pricing is becoming more complicated and intricate than ever before, while the need for more frequent rate revisions remains a primary issue in the field. A timely and accessible guide for the new industry environment, Electricity Pricing: Engineering Principles and Methodologies helps those involved in both the engineering and financial operations of electric power systems to "get the money right" while ensuring reliable electric service at a fair and reasonable cost. Explores both the business functions and engineering principles associated with electricity pricing Examining pricing approaches and opportunities, this book presents tools, viewpoints, and explanations that are generally not found in contemporary literature. It clarifies valuable analysis techniques, realistic examples, and unique lessons passed along from those inside the industry. This "how to do it" guide fosters a multidisciplinary understanding that integrates information, methodologies, and techniques from accounting, economics, engineering, finance, and marketing. Detail-oriented but still mindful of the big picture, this book examines the complex relationship between electricity, customers, and service providers in relation to pricing. Electricity Pricing also: Presents mathematical methods and techniques used to establish electricity prices, determine cost causation, and evaluate pricing structures and mechanisms Explores ways to translate and integrate cost elements into practical pricing structures Details how engineering concepts are used to apportion production, delivery, and associated costs to determine cost of service and to support all aspects of ratemaking strategy, design, analysis, and decision making This comprehensive professional reference addresses theory but remains grounded in no-nonsense practical applications. It is dually suited to introduce newcomers to the technical principles and methodologies of electricity pricing and provide veterans with a valuable consolidation of advanced tools for pricing analysis and problem solving.

Combining select chapters from Grigsby's standard-setting The Electric Power Engineering Handbook with several chapters not found in the original work, Electric Power Transformer Engineering became widely popular for its comprehensive, tutorial-style treatment of the theory, design, analysis, operation, and protection of power transformers. For its second edition, this popular progeny rejoins the handbook as one in a set of five carefully focused volumes. In addition to updates in nearly every chapter, this highly regarded reference brings to the Handbook its original contributions, discussing phase-shifting, rectifier, and constant-voltage transformers as well as power transformer protection and transient-voltage response. It also includes two new sections in the chapter on reactors, covering installation considerations for dry-type air-core reactors as well as line traps and power line carrier communication-, data-, and protective-relaying systems. Major updates appear in the highly active areas of dry-type transformers, instrument transformers, reactors, and load-tap changers. This book offers convenient access to everything from basic theory and concepts to detailed analysis of the individual components of a transformer. Reflecting standards, technologies, and new developments around the world, Electric Power Transformer Engineering, Second Edition provides a thorough and up-to-date guide for power engineers at all levels of expertise. Other volumes in the set include: Electric Power Generation, Transmission, and Distribution Electric Power Substations Engineering, Second Edition Power Systems Power System Stability and Control

Dieser Roman umspannt den Zeitraum zwischen der Weltausstellung in Chicago 1893 und den Jahren kurz nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg; er führt von Colorado über London und Göttingen, Venedig und Wien, den Balkan, Sibirien bis zum Hollywood der Stummfilmära sowie an ein, zwei Orte, die auf keiner Landkarte zu finden sind. Mit schrankenloser Phantasie und mit kauzigem Witz erzählt Thomas Pynchon von Macht, Dynamit und zügelloser Geldgier: «Vielleicht ist dies nicht die Welt, aber mit ein, zwei kleinen Änderungen könnte sie es sein.» «Das einzige Buch dieser Jahre, das die Welt, wie sie ist, tatsächlich herausfordert.» (Süddeutsche Zeitung) «Ein Meisterwerk, wie man es als Literaturkritiker vielleicht nur einmal in seinem Leben annoncieren darf ... aktueller als hier hat Pynchon nie geschrieben.» (Denis Scheck) «Sein komischster und zugleich sein zugänglichster Roman.» (The New York Book Review) «Pynchon lesen ist wie ein Sabbatical von all dem Müll, der uns umgibt.» (Stern) «Unvergesslich ... eines der größten Abenteuer der Gegenwartsliteratur.» (Focus) «Kaum eine der 1600 Seiten, auf der es nicht poetisch funkeln würde, die nicht von skurrilem Witz durchzogen wäre. Auf Knien möchte man den Übersetzern danken.» (Tagesspiegel) «Das Opus magnum im bisherigen Schaffen von Thomas Pynchon.» (Neue Zürcher Zeitung)
