  • System Protection

    There are two types of "protection" referred to in electric power systems. The first is system protection having to do with protective relays, fault currents, effective grounding, circuit breakers, fuses, etc. The second is personal protection having to do with rubber gloves, insulating blankets, grounding jumpers, switching platforms, tagging, etc. This chapter discusses the first one "system protection". System protection protects power system equipment from damage due to power faults and/or lightning strikes. Distribution lines are normally fed radially out of substations, meaning distribution feeders have only one utility source. Transmission protection is much different than distribution protection simply because transmission is usually not radially fed. Normally transmission systems have multiple feeds to a substation and transmission lines must have special protective relaying schemes to identify the actual faulted transmission line. The purpose of a synchronizing relay is to safely connect two 3???phase lines together or to place a spinning generator online.

  • Generation

    Power plants produce electrical energy on a real???time basis. Power generation plants produce the electrical energy that is ultimately delivered to consumers through transmission lines, substations, and distribution lines. Generation plants or power plants consist of three???phase generator(s), the prime mover, and the energy source to serve as the generator's prime mover, control room, and substation. This chapter discusses the more common types of energy resources used to generate electricity that includes steam turbines, hydro turbines, combustion turbines and renewable energy. Fossil fuel power plants use steam turbines that burn coal, oil, natural gas, or just about any combustible material as the fuel resource. Wind generation has increased in popularity and technology has improved tremendously over the last decade. Solar energy comes in two general categories; solar reflective (mirrors) and solar photovoltaic (panels). Both forms of solar energy production are environmentally friendly as they produce no pollution and considered renewable energy resources.

  • The Technology of the Electric Transmission System

    This chapter contains sections titled: Components HVAC Substations HVDC Advantages of AC over DC Operation Knowledge Required of Transmission Systems

  • Introduction to Electric Power Systems

    Chapter 2 introduces key elements of electric power systems and alternating current (AC) networks. The chapter starts with a discussion of direct current (DC) circuits, introducing voltage, current, energy, power and losses. This is extended to AC concepts including frequency, voltage transformation, reactive power and three-phase power. The key elements of a power system are then introduced, starting with the production of electricity (electricity generation). The key distinguishing characteristics of different generation technologies are introduced including differences in fixed and variable costs, ramp rates and energy limits. This is followed by a discussion of the characteristics of transmission and distribution networks, including voltage levels, tower heights and rights of way, substations, circuit breakers and signalling equipment. HVDC is introduced and its pros and cons discussed. Physical limits on electricity networks are introduced and discussed including thermal limits, voltage stability limits and transient stability limits. The final part of this chapter discusses the characteristics of electricity consumption devices and appliances. The chapter ends by asking what is the service provided by the electricity industry. The suggested answer is a platform for trade in electricity.

  • Generation

    Power generation is one of the core components of the power grid and is evolving rapidly. The smart grid cannot be understood without placing power generation technology in historical context as well as understanding its fundamental, invariant physics. Concepts such as microgrids are similar to the early power grid architecture; there are valuable lessons to be learned. Communication within the evolving power grid is heavily influenced by process control and supervisory and data acquisition communication systems used in power plants and substations. Early energy storage systems are often used in conjunction with power generation systems and are reviewed as well.

  • Introduction

    This introductory chapter of this book focuses on the tutorial and panel sessions presented by the experts of gas insulated substations in the working group K2 of the IEEE Substations Committee. In this working group the content of the tutorial has been worked out and discussed before the tutorials have been presented. In the present case, the tutorial content will be revised and finally published as a GIS Handbook. The GIS Handbook is based on definitions used in IEEE and IEC standards. The chapter lists some of the most important definitions for better understanding of the hand book. Finally, it discusses the purpose of ratings to correctly apply GIS equipment based on electric system topology and characteristics while reducing the variety of technical possibilities and guiding manufacturers. These ratings provide standardized solutions that are recognized across the industry and reduce cost.

  • Transmission

    The purpose and benefits of the power transmission system are reviewed, as well as communication typically used with the transmission system. It is important to understand the progression of the transmission system before considering how it will evolve in the future. Power grid system components that play a role in the transmission system and throughout the power grid are introduced, including the control center, transformers, capacitors, relays, substations, and inverters; the better one understands the needs and requirements of these devices for communication, the better the communication network can be designed and implemented. Power system concepts such as frequency analysis, the phasor, and the per-unit system are introduced. Power systems control has typically been designed to sense and control locally; explicit communication is avoided to maximize reliability. Networked control is introduced and evaluated as a potential communication alternative for control. A description of the challenges in the transmission system, such as synchronization, reducing power loss, and mitigating the impact of geomagnetic storms is given. The promise of wireless power transmission is introduced, to be picked up in more detail in later chapters.

  • Technology of the Electric Transmission System

    Technology of the Electric Transmission System covers both HVAC and HVDC systems. It describes the physical components of the electric transmission system including overhead lines and cables, the functions of substations and their physical arrangements and associated equipment, and the rating of overhead lines and cables. The issue of transmission system aging is covered. Devices used to control power flow including phase angle regulating transformers and FACTS device are addressed. A comparison is made of the relative advantages and disadvantages of HVAC and HVDC.
