Editorial Reviews

Review

'The emphasis...is on giving the student an understanding of power protection principles and to gain insight into the phenomena involved'.

From the Back Cover

The previous two editions of Power System Relaying offer comprehensive and accessible coverage of the theory and fundamentals of relaying and have been widely adopted on university and industry courses worldwide. With the third edition, the authors have added new and detailed descriptions of power system phenomena such as stability, system-wide protection concepts and discussion of historic outages. Power System Relaying, 3rd Edition continues its role as an outstanding textbook on power system protection for senior and graduate students in the field of electric power engineering and a reference book for practising relay engineers, and publishes in tandem with Arun Phadke being awarded the Benjamin Franklin Medal from the Franklin Institute in honor of his work in the field of electrical engineering.
  • Provides the student with an understanding of power system protection principles and an insight into the phenomena involved.
  • Discusses in detail the emerging technologies of adaptive relaying, hidden failures, wide area measurement, global positioning satellites and the specific application of digital devices.
  • Includes relay designs such as electromechanical, solid-state and digital relays to illustrate the advantages and disadvantages of each.
  • Re-examines traditional equipment protection practices to include new concepts such as transmission line differential protection, load encroachment on distance relay characteristics, distributed generation systems, and techniques to improve protection system response to power system events.
  • Analyzes system performance through oscillographs and alarms schemes.
  • Features problems to be worked through at the end of each chapter.

I used the first edition of this book during my undergraduate studies. The book is a good introduction to power system protection, but it's doesn't provide in depth details about the topics covered. The changes made to the 3rd edition are relatively small compare to the 2nd edition with some information added about wide area measurement and PMUs. The book is a good introduction for power system relaying but if you are looking for a reference book I highly recommend the book by P.M. Anderson "Power system protection".

I just finished reading the first chapter of edition 3 and so far I'm very disappointed. The book mentions certain procedures and arrangements, but doesn't explain anything well. The questions at the end of the chapter seem out of place since no procedure is explained. The first question asks the students to write a computer program to solve a problem. WHAT? I can program fine, but even simple programs take time and effort to write. Other questions asks the student to calculate the fault currents for systems, but there no example given in the short 18-page chapter 1.

The hubby is a distribution engineer who's been involved in protection engineering projects and this book has enabled him to work with Relay & Substation engineers and helped him acquire the background for the what, why, and how of the projects. As for me, also a EE, I have picked up the book for study material for the PE and found it a little daunting -it is written as a textbook with worked-out examples, which helps follow the concepts. However, one minus in my view is that the book does not have numerical solutions in the back, which would certainly help in working through the problems at the end of the chapters. Unless you are either involved in relaying projects in your day job or you regularly discuss the problems with others who know relay engineering, it is difficult to learn the material from the book by yourself. This book is certainly for graduate students or senior students with a STRONG background in power systems engineering. Though a EE working in the power industry, I never took power courses in school and was able to learn the subject from other textbooks with enough discipline to sit down and do the problems -unfortunately, not so with this one.
