Reactive Power Control in Electric Systems by Miller

Reactive Power Control in Electric Systems by Miller

Reactive power, volt-ampere reactive (var) is a unit by which reactive power is expressed in an AC electric power system, what exactly it is? Honestly, the answer is unclear altogether.

If it is, so why we learn how to calculate to compensate it?

Yes, we learn how to calculate reactive power at the bachelor degree, but those mathematic equations managed to just work around 5% in a real situation.

Can you tell me why it is unclear?

Of course, because we know that we have only two kinds of powers; active, and reactive; however, we have three kinds of them, in reality, the third one is still new to us.

Reactive power is a challenge for electrical engineers; as a result, we have new papers about it every month.

I propose to you; you should never underestimate reactive power; further, if you want to find your answers, you should not follow either the books or the teachers; consequently, you have just one option check the recent papers.

Reactive Power Control in Electric Systems that is written by Timothy John Eastham Miller is one of the old and basic books about reactive power, if you want to understand the principle of this kind of energy it could be a good choice; otherwise, because of new problems in reactive power this book is quite old; thus, In spite of this is a good book, you need to read the papers.


First of all, you should be friend with them! Because understanding the reactive power will be easier after you have worked with simulation software; shortly, remember that software complements an engineer.


Book description
