Energy Production Systems Engineering presents IEEE, Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA), and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards of engineering systems and equipment in utility electric generation stations.

  • Includes fundamental combustion reaction equations
  • Provides methods for measuring radioactivity and exposure limits
  • Includes IEEE, American Petroleum Institute (API), and  National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standards for motor applications
  • Introduces the IEEE C37 series of standards, which describe the proper selections and applications of switchgear
  • Describes how to use IEEE 80 to calculate the touch and step potential of a ground grid design

This book enables engineers and students to acquire through study the pragmatic knowledge and skills in the field that could take years to acquire through experience alone.
