Updated to take account of technological advances and structural and regulatory changes within the electric power industry, including the development and application of digital processing devices, this work introduces the fundamental concepts and technology of application of protective relays in electric power systems, which are designed to initiate power disconnects in trouble areas while maintaining operation and service fro the rest of the system. Topics covered include phasors and polarity; symmetrical components; relay input sources; basic design principles; system-grounding principles; generator protection and intertie protection for distributed generation; transformer, reactor, and shunt capacitor protection; bus protection; motor protection; line protection; pilot protection; stability, reclosing, load shedding, and trip circuit design; and microprocessor applications and substation automation.
