This book is a great resource-- well written, engaging, thorough. Examples are clear, and there are many of them. I read this book for an introductory course in power engineering. Chapter 1 gives a quick review of relevant concepts from Calculus based Physics. Three-phase systems are reviewed in chapter 2 before moving on to three-phase transformers, which was helpful! If you have some Calculus, Physics, and circuitry skills then you should feel confident taking on this material.
This is a good book with some great solutions for Power Systems Designers. Anyone wanting to further understand complicated Power System Fundamentals would do well to check this one out. I will say I read most of the book but not all of it as some of the content is over my head!
