Disturbance Analysis for Power Systemsby Mohamed A. Ibrahim
Synopses & Reviews
More than ninety case studies shed new light on power system phenomena and power system disturbances
Based 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:
Throughout 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.
Book News Annotation:
Now a consultant, Ibrahim retired as director of protection and control at the New York Power Authority in 2004. Here he explains systems for detecting and characterizing disturbances in power system using digital fault recorders (DFR), which have now largely replaced slower chemical and physical recording systems. He analyzes actual DRF records, oscillograms, and numerical relay fault records to demonstrate how to deduce the sequence of events in a disturbance. His topics are the power system disturbance analysis function, phenomena related to system faults and the process of clearing faults from a power system, and power system phenomena and their impact on relay system performance. All this takes about a quarter of the volume. The rest is devoted to case studies of disturbances relating in turn to generators, transformers, transmission lines, cable transmission, and breaker failure Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This book provides engineers with the basic background information for most power system phenomena and their impact on the behavior of protection systems. By analyzing power system disturbances, engineers will be able to understand the nature of the phenomena in order to adopt safe operating limits and implement protective relaying practices. The book documents the author's 40+ years of experience in the field of power system disturbance analysis. In addition, the book can be used as a text for graduate students studying power systems.
