Switching in Electrical Transmission and Distribution
Systems presents the issues and technological solutions
associated with switching in power systems, from medium to
ultra-high voltage.


The book systematically discusses the electrical aspects of
switching, details the way load and fault currents are interrupted,
the impact of fault currents, and compares switching equipment in
particular circuit-breakers. The authors also explain all examples
of practical switching phenomena by examining real measurements
from switching tests.


Other highlights include: up to date commentary on new
developments in transmission and distribution technology such as
ultra-high voltage systems, vacuum switchgear for high-voltage,
generator circuit-breakers, distributed generation,
DC-interruption, aspects of cable systems, disconnector switching,
very fast transients, and circuit-breaker reliability studies.


Key features:





Summarises the issues and technological solutions associated
with the switching of currents in transmission and
distribution systems.

Introduces and explains recent developments such as vacuum
switchgear for transmission systems, SF6 environmental consequences
and alternatives, and circuit-breaker testing.

Provides practical guidance on how to deal with unacceptable
switching transients.

Details the worldwide IEC (International Electrotechnical
Commission) standards on switching equipment, illustrating current
circuit-breaker applications.

Features many figures and tables originating from full-power
tests and established training courses, or from measurements in
real networks.

Focuses on practical and application issues relevant to
practicing engineers.

Essential reading for electrical engineers, utility engineers,
power system application engineers, consultants and power systems
asset managers, postgraduates and final year power system
undergraduates.
