Bulletproof any electric power system! Whether you design, modify, or maintain power systems, make Power System Protection by P. M. Anderson your first line of defense. This nuts-and-bolts resource gives you proven techniques to protect your power generators and grid from any malfunction--from overload to lightning strikes to line disturbances and beyond. It gives you the skills and station-tested know-how to troubleshoot existing problems--and vital clues and red flags to stop mishaps before they begin. You'll easily configure and fine-tune every type of protective relay... properly insulate lines from corona disturbance... protect transformers from incipent faults and harmonic distortion... save generators from overheating and over-current damage... and more. Plus, you'll see how to expertly perform reliability analysis using block diagrams, success trees, truth tables, and minimal cut and minimal path sets. What's more, you'll get fast, at-a-glance data on protection terminology, protective device classification, overhead line impedances, transformer data and more.

From the Back Cover:

In a world of huge, interconnected networks that can be completely blacked out by disturbances, Power System Protection offers an improved understanding of the requirements necessary for prompt and accurate corrective action. P.M. Anderson, a noted expert on power systems, presents an analytical and technical approach to power system protection. His discussion shows how abnormal system behavior can be detected before damage occurs, and points to effective control action to limit system outages. Advance your knowledge of power system protection through a better understanding of:

  • Protective devices and controls
  • Protection concepts
  • Transmission protection
  • Apparatus protection
  • System aspects of protective systems
  • Reliability analysis of protective systems
Power System Protection is written for practicing engineers and advanced graduate-level student engineers, who need a comprehensive resource on the principles of power system behavior and methods of system analysis. This essential reference work provides new and advanced concepts for understanding systems performance.
