Book Description

A professional engineer's guide to communications technology applications in electricity transmission and distribution.

From the Back Cover

* Covers engineering requirements and business implications of this cutting-edge and ever-evolving field
* Provides a unique insight into a fast-emerging and growing market that has become and will continue to evolve into one of leading communication technologies
* Written in a practical manner to help readers handle the transformation from the old analog environment to the modern digital communications-based one

Electrical network automation represents the cutting-edge of technology in electrical engineering. It means having an intelligent, interactive power distribution and transmission network. This book commences by reviewing the different communication protocols used in the electrical environment and then examines new protection techniques to increase reliability and performance while reducing costs. Implementation of local and remote control of switchgear including interlocking and intelligent load shedding are examined in some detail. The book concludes by examining and comparing different products and systems available for protection, control and automation of electrical power networks.

In the past automation of the power network was a very specialized area but recently due to deregulation and privatization the area has become of a great importance because companies require more information and communication to minimize costs, reduce workforce and minimize errors in order to make a profit.
