Protective Relays, Measurement and Control

Since 1966, the Network Protection and Automation Guide (formerly the Protective Relays Application Guide) has been the definitive reference textbook for protection engineers and technicians.

Network Protection And Automation Guide 2011 // Protective Relays, Measurement and Control – Alstom Grid
Network Protection And Automation Guide 2011 // Protective Relays, Measurement and Control – Alstom Grid

For 2011, Alstom has capitalised on its pool of experts at the St Leonards Centre of Excellence in Stafford UK to launch a new edition.

New chapters treat topics such as system integrity protection and remedial action schemes, phasor measurements and wide area schemes. The digital substation, including IEC 61850, Ethernet station bus, GOOSE, process bus, and precision time synchronising is also detailed.

Advancements in protection and control application engineering have assisted the authors in exploring and integrating the new techniques and philosophies in this edition, whilst retaining vendor- independence – as we continue to deliver the genuine, impartial, reference textbook.

This book is a précis of the Application and Protection of Power Systems (APPS) training course, an intensive programme, which Alstom (and its predecessor companies at Stafford) has been running for over 50 years.
