This 5-hour course is the first in a series of five courses on the design of relaying and system protection programs for electric utilities. These courses describe the fundamental concepts of electric system protection and provides detailed examples of the application of relaying. In most cases, the material is based on electromechanical relays to give the reader a strong understanding of current relaying practices.
This course discusses the principles of electric system protection and the nomenclature and taxonomy of relaying. Different relaying types and concepts are broadly discussed. This course provides the fundamentals and is important for understanding the concepts presented in other volumes.
This series is divided into five separate courses. Each course essentially stands on its own and the courses do not necessarily need to be taken in the order listed. However, for a thorough understanding it makes sense to take the courses are presented.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
