Recommended Practice for Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Analysis
|Publication Date:||16 September 1997|
This Recommended Practice, commonly known as the IEEE Brown Book, is published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) as a reference source to give plant engineers a better understanding of the purpose for and techniques involved in power system studies. The IEEE Brown Book can also be a helpful reference source for system and data acquisition for engineering consultants performing necessary studies prior to designing a new system or expanding an existing power system. This Recommended Practice will help ensure high standards of power system reliability and maximize the utilization of capital investment.
The IEEE Brown Book emphasizes up-to-date techniques in system studies that are most applicable to industrial and commercial power systems. It complements the other IEEE Color Books, and is intended to be used in conjunction with, not as a replacement for, the many excellent texts available in this field
The IEEE Brown Book was prepared on a voluntary basis by engineers and designers functioning as a Working Group within the IEEE, under the Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Department of the Industry Applications Society.
