Power System Control and Protection focuses on the control and protection of power systems to ensure a secure and reliable supply as the society depends greatly on electric energy. This book examines the problems surrounding the generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization of electricity. Comprised of 10 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the functional and environmental requirements for the intelligent remote terminal in which much of the logic linked with each function has been programmed and is executed in a digital processor. This text then examines the objectives, functions, and elements of the control center design. Other chapters consider the operating characteristics and configuration of the system components of an audio-frequency power line carrier load management system. This book discusses as well the concept of transmission line relaying by digital computer. The final chapter deals with the large-scale utilization of wind energy. Power systems engineers will find this book useful.
