This text concentrates on the fundamentals of protective relaying and aims to provide lasting information in intelligible language. It covers the relative qualities of modern transmission line systems, communications channels, three-terminal applications and program design for microprocessors, and also supplies an encyclopaedic bibliography listing professional papers useful to the relay engineer.
Table of Contents
Communication fundamentals; current differential relaying; pilot channels for protective relaying; transmission line pilot relaying; three-terminal line protection; program design for microprocessor relays; series-compensated line protection philosophies; single-pole tripping; substation automation and relay communications; protective relay digital fault recording and analysis.
"Since the author has stressed simplicity and root technology, this book is meant to serve relay and power engineers who desire to learn the fundamentals of protective relaying. Coupled with its companion text, Protective Relaying: Theory and Applications (1994, Marcel Dekker, Inc.), these two titles are excellent guides to the basic of modern protective relaying. "
