For courses in Principles of Economics. An evidence-based approach to economics Throughout Economics, 2nd Edition, authors Daron Acemoglu, David Laibson, and John List use real economic questions and data to help readers learn about the world around them. Taking a fresh approach, they use the themes of optimization, equilibrium, and empiricism to not only illustrate the power of simple economic ideas, but also to explain and predict what's happening in today's society. Each chapter begins with an empirical question that is relevant to the life of a reader, and is later answered using data in the Evidence-Based Economics feature. As a result of the text's practical emphasis, readers learn to apply economic principles to guide the decisions they make in their own lives.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

A new edition of the classic text explaining the fundamentals of competitive electricity markets—now updated to reflect the evolution of these markets and the large scale deployment of generation from renewable energy sources The introduction of competition in the generation and retail of electricity has changed the ways in which power systems function. The design and operation of successful competitive electricity markets requires a sound understanding of both power systems engineering and underlying economic principles of a competitive market. This extensively revised and updated edition of the classic text on power system economics explains the basic economic principles underpinning the design, operation, and planning of modern power systems in a competitive environment. It also discusses the economics of renewable energy sources in electricity markets, the provision of incentives, and the cost of integrating renewables in the grid. Fundamentals of Power System Economics, Second Edition looks at the fundamental concepts of microeconomics, organization, and operation of electricity markets, market participants’ strategies, operational reliability and ancillary services, network congestion and related LMP and transmission rights, transmission investment, and generation investment. It also expands the chapter on generation investments—discussing capacity mechanisms in more detail and the need for capacity markets aimed at ensuring that enough generation capacity is available when renewable energy sources are not producing due to lack of wind or sun. Retains the highly praised first edition’s focus and philosophy on the principles of competitive electricity markets and application of basic economics to power system operating and planning Includes an expanded chapter on power system operation that addresses the challenges stemming from the integration of renewable energy sources Addresses the need for additional flexibility and its provision by conventional generation, demand response, and energy storage Discusses the effects of the increased uncertainty on system operation Broadens its coverage of transmission investment and generation investment Updates end-of-chapter problems and accompanying solutions manual Fundamentals of Power System Economics, Second Edition is essential reading for graduate and undergraduate students, professors, practicing engineers, as well as all others who want to understand how economics and power system engineering interact.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

New products in principles of economics have been eager to address innovative ways of using technology to teach this introductory course. While these products are often accompanied by impressive digital resources, they all share one characteristic: they are still grounded in the traditional textbook format. In a new, “digital-first” approach for the principles of economics course, Roger Butters and Carlos Asarta offer the same core content covered in mainstream textbooks, but in a way that breaks free from the constraints of a traditional textbook’s structure and format, empowering instructors to take advantage of new approaches in teaching methodology to revitalize their courses. The authors present over 200 distinct concepts in the principles course, each anchored by an engaging 2-4 minute high-quality video, and accompanied by a suite of learning resources such as dynamic applications, worked examples, and assessment tools. With a concept-level approach, instructors are able to handpick every aspect of the curriculum, from concepts covered to sequencing, providing flexibility for instructors to tailor their courses in such a way that is appropriate for any school, at any level, and set to any depth. Instead of a class that revolves around static pages and chapters of a textbook, Roger Butters and Carlos Asarta envision a learning environment that revolves around the talents and abilities of the teacher in the classroom. The result is an experience that is motivating, accessible, and adaptable to how today’s students learn and obtain information.
