More than ninety case studies shed new light on power systemphenomena and power system disturbances
Based on the author's four decades of experience, this bookenables readers to implement systems in order to monitor andperform comprehensive analyses of power system disturbances. Mostimportantly, readers will discover the latest strategies andtechniques needed to detect and resolve problems that could lead toblackouts to ensure the smooth operation and reliability of anypower system.
Logically organized, Disturbance Analysis for Power Systemsbegins with an introduction to the power system disturbanceanalysis function and its implementation. The book then guidesreaders through the causes and modes of clearing of phase andground faults occurring within power systems as well as powersystem phenomena and their impact on relay system performance. Thenext series of chapters presents more than ninety actual casestudies that demonstrate how protection systems have performed indetecting and isolating power system disturbances in:
Overhead transmission lines
Cable transmission line feeders
Circuit breaker failures
Throughout these case studies, actual digital fault recording(DFR) records, oscillograms, and numerical relay fault records arepresented and analyzed to demonstrate why power system disturbanceshappen and how the sequence of events are deduced. The finalchapter of the book is dedicated to practice problems, encouragingreaders to apply what they've learned to perform their own systemdisturbance analyses.
This book makes it possible for engineers, technicians, andpower system operators to perform expert power system disturbanceanalyses using the latest tested and proven methods. Moreover, thebook's many cases studies and practice problems make it ideal forstudents studying power systems.
