I just came across a great book. It's called "Handbook of Electric Power Calculations" by H. Wayne Beaty and Surya Santoso.

ISBN-13: 978-9387572959
ISBN-10: 9789387572959

Got in on eBay for around $30 new. It includes calculation procedures step-by-step, clearly labeled for the following subjects:

  1. Basic Network Analysis
  2. Instrumentation
  3. DC Motors and Generators
  4. Transformers
  5. Three-Phase Induction Motors
  6. Single-Phase Motors
  7. Synchronus Machines
  8. Generation of Electric Power
  9. Overhead Transmission Lines and Underground Cables
  10. Electric-Power Networks
  11. Load-Flor Analysis in Power Systems
  12. Power-Systems Control
  13. Short-Circuit Computations
  14. System Grounding
  15. Power-system Protection
  16. Power System Stability
  17. Cogeneration
  18. Stationary Batteries
  19. Electric Energy Economic Methods
  20. Lighting Design

Take a look and let me know what you think. Looks very helpful.

I have this book, only problem I have with this book is even the problems are solved in a wordy manner making it difficult to quickly navigate. During exam you are not going to have so much time. I wish they made it more numerical or large foot print so it would be easy to reference.

It's a bit wordy. I guess you have to read through it to know what to look for. Still better than nothing and I like how it's all in one book.

This was a go-to reference for me both during my power engineering courses in my undergrad and for my MSEE. :thumbs:
