Download Power System Protection Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
An all-in-one resource on power system protection fundamentals, practices, and applications Made up of an assembly of electrical components, power system protections are a critical piece of the electric power system. Despite its central importance to the safe operation of the power grid, the information available on the topic is limited in scope and detail. In Power System Protection: Fundamentals and Applications, a team of renowned engineers delivers an authoritative and robust overview of power system protection ideal for new and early-career engineers and technologists. The book offers device- and manufacturer-agnostic fundamentals using an accessible balance of theory and practical application. It offers a wealth of examples and easy-to-grasp illustrations to aid the reader in understanding and retaining the information provided within. In addition to providing a wealth of information on power system protection applications for generation, transmission, and distribution facilities, the book offers readers: A thorough introduction to power system protection, including why it's required and foundational definitions Comprehensive explorations of basic power system protection components, including instrument transformers, terminations, telecommunications, and more Practical discussions of basic types of protection relays and their operation, including overcurrent, differential, and distance relays In-depth examinations of breaker failure protection and automatic reclosing, including typical breaker failure tripping zones, logic paths, pedestal breakers, and more Perfect for system planning engineers, system operators, and power system equipment specifiers, Power System Protection: Fundamentals and Applications will also earn a place in the libraries of design and field engineers and technologists, as well as students and scholars of power-system protection.
