Protection of power apparatus and systems. Fuses. Voltage and current transducers. Relays, Coordination of Relays. Pilot channels. Grounding practices. Surge phenomena. Insulation coordination.
This course covers the subject of protection of power systems against faults and transient overvoltages. It is supported by a concurrent laboratory where related experiments are performed. Together, these two courses will provide the students a comprehensive treatment of the theory and practice of relaying. Also surge phenomena and protection practices against surges will be covered in this course.
C- or better in 4334
The concepts of power system analysis developed in EE 4334 are essential for the understanding of power system protection taught in this course.
