operator perspective, this classic textbook explains the
fundamentals of relaying and power system phenomena including
stability, protection and reliability. The fourth edition brings
coverage up-to-date with important advancements in protective
relaying due to significant changes in the conventional electric
power system that will integrate renewable forms of energy and, in
some countries, adoption of the Smart Grid initiative.
New features of the Fourth Edition include:
an entirely new chapter on protection considerations for
renewable energy sources, looking at grid interconnection
techniques, codes, protection considerations and
new concepts in power system protection such as Wide Area
Measurement Systems (WAMS) and system integrity protection (SIPS)
-how to use WAMS for protection, and SIPS and control with
phasor measurement units (PMU), transmission line current
differential, high voltage dead tank circuit breakers, and relays
for multi-terminal lines.
revisions to the Bus Protection Guide IEEE C37.234 (2009) and
to the sections on additional protective requirements and
Used by universities and industry courses throughout the world,
Power System Relaying is an essential text for graduate
students in electric power engineering and a reference for
practising relay and protection engineers who want to be kept up to
date with the latest advances in the industry.
