This book explains the operation of utilities and the important factors of quality control when operating a utility company.

The first chapter provides an overview of quality control for utilities. This chapter also discusses how to ensure that there is enough power to meet demand at any given time.

The second chapter discusses how to ensure power is always transmitted effectively.

The third chapter discusses how to re-start a power plant after a major shut down. This chapter also provides an overview of communication systems and an overview of grids.

The fourth chapter discusses monitoring and communication systems. This chapter explains the SCADA system, discussing the components and how it works. This chapter also explains the types of translation devices and various options for communications.

The remaining chapters discuss the specific factors affecting the quality of power. These factors are voltage, frequency, and temperature. Each of the remaining chapters describe the causes, effects, and protection against significant variations in each factor.
