NEW: Substation Automation Handbook (some 400 pages)

This Book arrived on time after the August 14 power blackout:

To secure and improve electric power networks,
substation experts all over the world
should order and read this book.


Comprehensive description (Table of Content) of Substation Automation and the coordination with Network Operation to obtain both performance and cost benefits by enabling enhanced Power System Management ... including the new standard IEC 61850.

Dr. Klaus-Peter Brand, Volker Lohmann, Dr. Wolfgang Wimmer

Over the past decade the electricity supply industry has been subjected to dramatic changes. World-wide the trend is to restructure vertically integrated utilities catering for generation, transmission and distributions into smaller "unbundled" companies. The new plant owners are pushed to minimize costs through greater utilization of assets.

This new operation philosophy is enabled by the rapid advances, which are made in the field of digital technology applied for protection, control and communication. These developments drive significant changes in the electric power system management, broadband communication and substation automation.

Substation Automation (SA) systems play the role as key success factors for advanced power system management performing all the local tasks in the substation like data acquisition from the power grid via the switchgear and the activation of changes by commands to switchgear like circuit breakers, isolators, transformers etc. in a decentralized structure.

These functions are conducted by dedicated intelligent electronic devices (IED) for control, protection, disturbance recording, condition monitoring, automatics and communication. The purpose of this Substation Automation Handbook is to provide comprehensive knowledge of all the aspects involved with SA and to bridge the gap in mutual understanding between those readers, who are well experienced with the mana- gement of power systems and primary equipment in substations and readers, who are more familiar with information technology (IT) and involved in the development, design, production, and application of modern IEDs intended to be used for SA.

The authors share their vast experiences in the field of SA gained for more than 20 years and were personally involved with the development and implementation of a comprehensive platform for multipurpose control and protection IEDs as well as in the process to standardize the communication within substations, which has resulted in the new Standard IEC 61850. Apart from substation related issues, the SA Handbook highlights that the implementation of SA enables a new strategy related to wide area protection that counteracts multi-contingency disturbances in order to avoid power system collapse.
