K56 The objective of this series is to recognize past works that merit being remembered and to make these older works available to a new generation of engineers. We believe many engineers will welcome the opportunity of owning their own copies of these classics.

In order to come to an agreement about which text to reprint, a num- ber of candidates were proposed. After a discussion, the board took a vote. The subject of power system stability has been studied and written about for decades. It has always been a challenge for the engineer to understand the physical description of a system described' by a huge number of differential equations. The system modeling is central to an understanding of these large dynamic systems.

Modeling is one of the central themes of Kimbark's Power System Stability books. His dis- cussion of the system equations remains as clear and descriptive today as it was when first published. Many engineers have seen references to these works, and may have had difficulty in finding copies for study. This new printing presents a new chance for these engineers to now have copies for personal study and reference. Kimbark presents a method of solving the system equations that was used in the days of the network analyzer.

This method has been re- placed by digital computer techniques that provide much greater power and speed. However, the older methods are still of historical interest, moreover, these step-by-step methods provide a convenient way of understanding how a large system of equations can be solved. Edward Kimbark was noted during his long career as an excellent writer and one who had the unique capability of explaining complex topics in a clear and interesting manner.

Kimbark's book, Electrical Transmission of Power Signals, published in , vii provided a general treatment of electric power networks and signal propagation. In Kimbark joined the Bonneville Power Administration as head of the systems analysis branch, where he remained until his re- tirement in He continued to work on special tasks at Bonneville until his death in Kimbark is well-known for his excellent books and also his many technical papers.

Department of the Interior. It grew out of lectures given by the author in a graduate evening course at Northwestern University during the school year For the convenience of the reader, the work is divided into three volumes. Volume I covers the elements of the stability problem, the principal factors affecting stability, the ordinary simplified methods of making stability calculations, and illus- trations of the application of these methods in studies which have been made on actual power systems.

Volume II covers power circuit breakers and protective relays, including material on rapid reclosing of circuit breakers and on the performance of protective relays during swings and out-of-step conditions. Such material belongs in a work on sta- bility because the most important means of improving the tran- sient stability of power systems in the improvement of circuit breakers and of protective relaying.

Justification of the simplifying assumptions ordinarily used in 'stability calculations and the carrying out of calculations for the extraordinary cases in which greater accuracy than that.
