Proper operation of sensitive equipment requires attention to transient disturbances, grounding practices, and standby power needs. This second edition of the successful AC Power Systems Handbook focuses on engineering technology essential to the design, maintenance, and operation of alternating current power supplies. What's New in the Second Edition? Expanded discussion on power-system components New chapter on grounding practices Appendix covering engineering data and tables Updated material in all chapters Serving engineering personnel involved in the specification, installation, and maintenance of electronic equipment for industry, this revision comprehensively examines the design and maintenance of ac power systems for critical-use applications. AC Power Systems Handbook also reflects the increased movement toward microelectronic equipment and microprocessor-based systems as well as the increased priority among electronics engineers on the protection of such systems.30 Figure 1.25 Simplified diagram of a three-phase ac generator. 3 1 Figure 1.26 Generator circuit configurations: (a) wye; (b) delta. 32 Figure 1.27 Output waveform of a three-phase generator. 33 Figure 1.28 Cross-section of a simpleanbsp;...
