Book Description

An introduction to geomagnetic storms and the threats they pose at the Earth’s surface

Geomagnetic storms are a form of space weather event that can create Geomagnetically Induced Currents (GICs) which; once they reach Earth’s surface; can intervene with power grids and transport infrastructure. Understanding the characteristics and effects of GICs requires scientific insights from solar physics; aeronomy; magnetospheric physics; and ionospheric physics along with geophysics and power engineering.

Geomagnetically Induced Currents from the Sun to the Power Grid; (PDF); is a practical introduction for practitioners and researchers that provides tools and techniques from across these disciplines.

Volume highlights include:

  • Analysis techniques used in different areas of GIC research
  • GIC impacts on the infrastructure of the bulk power system
  • Analysis of causes of geomagnetic storms that create GICs
  • Data and methods used to analyze and forecast GIC hazard
  • New methods to validate and predict GICs in transmission systems

NOTE: The product includes the ebook; Geomagnetically Induced Currents from the Sun to the Power Grid;  in PDF. No access codes are included.
