Practical Power System and Protective Relays Commissioning is a unique collection of the most important developments in the field of power system setup. It includes simple explanations and cost affordable models for operating engineers. The book explains the theory of power system components in a simple, clear method that also shows how to apply different commissioning tests for different protective relays. The book discusses scheduling for substation commissioning and how to manage available resources to efficiently complete projects on budget and with optimal use of resources.

Key Features

  • Explains the theory of power system components and how to set the different types of relays
  • Discusses the time schedule for substation commissioning and how to manage available resources and cost implications
  • Details worked examples and illustrates best practices


Professional Electrical Commissioning Engineers, commissioning Technicians, High Voltage Engineers and Technicians, Power station Engineers, Protection and control System engineers, Relay setting Engineers, Electrical power Design Engineers, substation engineers, substation project managers, 3rd and 4th year university students in electrical power.
