Über dieses Buch

This reference book provides a detailed discussion on the protection challenges that arise due to technological improvements in transmission and distribution systems to supply increasing power demand. The primary focus of this book is transmission line protection with FACTS devices connected to the line and islanding detection in an active distribution system i.e., microgrids.

First, a literature review on the protection of transmission lines in the presence of switching devices is presented. The following chapters then present commonly proposed modifications required in the power system to meet increasing power demands, commonly used existing protection schemes and their limitations in the presence of switching devices, and solutions to these limitations in protection schemes. Results from fault simulations using PSCAD/EMTDC and MATLAB are also included.

This book will be valuable to graduate students and practicing engineers alike for dealing with protection issues in transmission and distribution systems incorporating FACTS devices.

Provides thorough knowledge of trends in transmission networks for the enhancement of power flow, control and protectionPresents an analysis of requirements of microgrids in the future Highlights challenges in the protection of active distribution systems or microgrids against islanding in the presence of distributed generation

Chapter 2. Modifications Required in Power System to Meet Increasing Power Demand

Abstract
There is a need to fulfill the electric power demand, and therefore, this chapter presents a discussion on various techniques available to do so including different FACTS devices, for example, TCSC, SVC, and STATCOM. A discussion on DG integration to the distribution system is also included.

Chapter 3. Existing Protection and Challenges

Abstract
Any new technology that comes with advantages would also impose some issues or challenges. For instance, incorporating FACTS devices in the transmission system may confuse the existing relaying system because these devices manipulate the system parameters such as line current, voltage, and impedance. Similarly, the distribution system embedded with DG technologies increases the penetration level and, thus, may degrade the power quality and disturb the existing protection system. All these issues/challenges possessed by the latest technologies will be discussed in this chapter.

Chapter 4. Solutions to the Protection Challenges

Abstract
Improved protection schemes are preferred for modern transmission and distribution systems incorporated with the latest and advanced devices including power electronics-based devices. Several recent schemes with advanced features are included and summarized in this chapter. The statistics of these schemes are interesting, and these schemes can be preferred for the protection of modern power system.
