For many years, Protective Relaying: Principles and Applications has been the go-to text for gaining proficiency in the technological fundamentals of power system protection. Continuing in the bestselling tradition of the previous editions by the late J. Lewis Blackburn, the Fourth Edition retains the core concepts at the heart of power system analysis. Featuring refinements and additions to accommodate recent technological progress, the text: Explores developments in the creation of smarter, more flexible protective systems based on advances in the computational power of digital devices and the capabilities of communication systems that can be applied within the power grid Examines the regulations related to power system protection and how they impact the way protective relaying systems are designed, applied, set, and monitored Considers the evaluation of protective systems during system disturbances and describes the tools available for analysis Addresses the benefits and problems associated with applying microprocessor-based devices in protection schemes Contains an expanded discussion of intertie protection requirements at dispersed generation facilities Providing information on a mixture of old and new equipment, Protective Relaying: Principles and Applications, Fourth Edition reflects the present state of power systems currently in operation, making it a handy reference for practicing protection engineers. And yet its challenging end-of-chapter problems, coverage of the basic mathematical requirements for fault analysis, and real-world examples ensure engineering students receive a practical, effective education on protective systems. Plus, with the inclusion of a solutions manual and figure slides with qualifying course adoption, the Fourth Edition is ready-made for classroom implementation.
With emphasis on power system protection from the networkoperator perspective, this classic textbook explains thefundamentals of relaying and power system phenomena includingstability, protection and reliability. The fourth edition bringscoverage up-to-date with important advancements in protectiverelaying due to significant changes in the conventional electricpower system that will integrate renewable forms of energy and, insome countries, adoption of the Smart Grid initiative. New features of the Fourth Edition include: an entirely new chapter on protection considerations forrenewable energy sources, looking at grid interconnectiontechniques, codes, protection considerations andpractices. new concepts in power system protection such as Wide AreaMeasurement Systems (WAMS) and system integrity protection (SIPS)-how to use WAMS for protection, and SIPS and control withWAMS. phasor measurement units (PMU), transmission line currentdifferential, high voltage dead tank circuit breakers, and relaysfor multi-terminal lines. revisions to the Bus Protection Guide IEEE C37.234 (2009) andto the sections on additional protective requirements andrestoration. Used by universities and industry courses throughout the world,Power System Relaying is an essential text for graduatestudents in electric power engineering and a reference forpractising relay and protection engineers who want to be kept up todate with the latest advances in the industry.
