Switching in Electrical Transmission and Distribution Systems presents the issues and technological solutions associated with switching in power systems, from medium to ultra-high voltage.
The book systematically discusses the electrical aspects of switching, details the way load and fault currents are interrupted, the impact of fault currents, and compares switching equipment in particular circuit-breakers. The authors also explain all examples of practical switching phenomena by examining real measurements from switching tests.
Other highlights include: up to date commentary on new developments in transmission and distribution technology such as ultra-high voltage systems, vacuum switchgear for high-voltage, generator circuit-breakers, distributed generation, DC-interruption, aspects of cable systems, disconnector switching, very fast transients, and circuit-breaker reliability studies.
Key features: * Summarises the issues and technological solutions associated with the switching of currents in transmission and distribution systems. * Introduces and explains recent developments such as vacuum switchgear for transmission systems, SF6 environmental consequences and alternatives, and circuit-breaker testing. * Provides practical guidance on how to deal with unacceptable switching transients. * Details the worldwide IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) standards on switching equipment, illustrating current circuit-breaker applications. * Features many figures and tables originating from full-power tests and established training courses, or from measurements in real networks. * Focuses on practical and application issues relevant to practicing engineers. * Essential reading for electrical engineers, utility engineers, power system application engineers, consultants and power systems asset managers, postgraduates and final year power system undergraduates.Vom Verlag:
This book covers the technology of switching in systems for electrical power transmission and distribution, from medium to (and including) ultra-high voltage for alternating current (AC). Emphasis is on the electrical aspects, covering the electrical transient phenomena of switching, its background, a generic description of equipment used for switching, various application examples, specification and commissioning of such equipment and testing aspects. The different methods to test high-voltage circuit-breakers are presented for each type of switching condition. In order to be close to the user, the standardized requirement for such equipment is followed as a guideline. This book supplies practical guidance on how to deal with unacceptable switching transientsand gives an explanation to world-wide IEC standards on switching equipment, illustrating current applications. It also incorporates the most recent developments both in technology (e.g. greater use of vacuum breakers, developments in UHV (1000kV) technology) and techniques via their involvement in testing, research & international conferences such as IEC & CIGRE. The authors have experience in giving courses all over the world and have seen first-hand that users of switching equipment want to learn more about the phenomena and technology. After an introduction, the book covers faults in power systems and then fault current making and breaking. The third and fourth chapters discuss load switching SF6 switchgear. Chapter Six presents vacuum switchgear. Special switching situations are looked at next, then application of switchgear, specification and commissioning. The final chapter covers testing (type tests, acceptance tests, development tests).
