Summary and Info
More than ninety case studies shed new light on power system phenomena and power system disturbancesBased on the author's four decades of experience, this book enables readers to implement systems in order to monitor and perform comprehensive analyses of power system disturbances. Most importantly, readers will discover the latest strategies and techniques needed to detect and resolve problems that could lead to blackouts to ensure the smooth operation and reliability of any power system. Logically organized, Disturbance Analysis for Power Systems begins with an introduction to the power system disturbance analysis function and its implementation. The book then guides readers through the causes and modes of clearing of phase and ground faults occurring within power systems as well as power system phenomena and their impact on relay system performance. The next series of chapters presents more than ninety actual case studies that demonstrate how protection systems have performed in detecting and isolating power system disturbances in: GeneratorsTransformersOverhead transmission linesCable transmission line feedersCircuit breaker failuresThroughout these case studies, actual digital fault recording (DFR) records, oscillograms, and numerical relay fault records are presented and analyzed to demonstrate why power system disturbances happen and how the sequence of events are deduced. The final chapter of the book is dedicated to practice problems, encouraging readers to apply what they've learned to perform their own system disturbance analyses. This book makes it possible for engineers, technicians, and power system operators to perform expert power system disturbance analyses using the latest tested and proven methods. Moreover, the book's many cases studies and practice problems make it ideal for students studying power systems.Content: Chapter 1 Power System Disturbance Analysis Function (pages 1–32): Chapter 2 Phenomena Related to System Faults and the Process of Clearing Faults from a Power System (pages 33–84): Chapter 3 Power System Phenomena and their Impact on Relay System Performance (pages 85–181): Chapter 4 Case Studies Related to Generator System Disturbances (pages 183–334): Chapter 5 Case Studies Related to Transformer System Disturbances (pages 335–460): Chapter 6 Case Studies Related to Overhead Transmission?Line System Disturbances (pages 461–570): Chapter 7 Case Studies Related to Cable Transmission Feeder System Disturbances (pages 571–613): Chapter 8 Case Studies Related to Breaker Failure Protection System Disturbances (pages 615–684): Chapter 9 Problems (pages 685–714):
