Wiley and IEEE have published Professor Alexander Emanuel’s book entitled, “Power Definition and the Physical Mechanism of Power Flow.”

The goal of this text was to compare and facilitate the understanding of the two seminal standards in power, the IEEE Std. 1459 and the DIN 40110-2:2002-11. Through critical analysis of the important and recent theories and review of basic concepts, this book is a highly accessible guide to the essence of the standards.

The goal of "Power Definition and the Physical Mechanism of Power Flow" was to compare and to facilitate the understanding of the two seminal standards in power, the IEEE Std. 1459 and the DIN 40110-2:2002-11. Through critical analysis of the most important and recent theories and review of basic concepts, this book is a highly accessible guide to the essence of the standards.

Key features in the text include:
• An explanation of the physical mechanism of energy flow under different conditions: single- and three-phase, sinusoidal and non-sinusoidal, balanced and unbalanced systems
• The text starts at an elementary level and becomes more complex, with six core chapters and six appendices
• Discusses and recommends power definitions that played a significant historical role in paving the road for the two standards
• Provides a number of original unsolved problems
• Introduces a new nonactive power; the Randomness of power

Alexander Emanuel is a Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
