Protective Relaying Principles and Applications 4th Edition By J Lewis Blackburn and Thomas J Domin

Preface to the Third Edition: The third edition of Protective Relaying incorporates information on new developments and topics in protective relaying that has emerged since the second edition was published. This time span represents a dynamic period that involved significant technological advances and revolutionary structural changes within the electric power industry. The format of this book remains similar to the previous editions and retains the full scope of fundamentals of protection that have been presented by Lewis Blackburn in a most elegant and understandable manner. I have taken on the task of updating and expanding Blackburn’s work with humility and honor. f

from a technical standpoint, significant advances in the development and application of digital processing devices in power system protection and control continue. A considerable amount of new material is presented on this subject along with the benefits and problems associated with applying such microprocessor-based devices in protection schemes. Over recent years, structural changes within the electric utility industry have changed the manner in which segments of power systems are owned and networks are developed. The impacts of these changes with respect to the system protection function are discussed in this edition. In addition, structural and regulatory changes have promoted the installation of generators with a wide range of sizes at locations that are distributed throughout power transmission and distribution systems. A discussion of protection requirements at the interconnection location for such distributed generation has been added to the text. New material is also presented on the application of protective systems and limiters in generator excitation systems. Other areas that have been added or significantly expanded include capacitor bank protection, underfrequency load-shedding scheme designs and performance, voltage collapse and mitigation, special protection schemes, fault and event recording, fault location techniques, and the latest advances in transformer protection. All existing material in the text has been reviewed and updated as appropriate.

An addition that I hope will be rewarding to the reader is the inclusion of my personal insights on the practical application and performance aspects of power system protection and operations. These perspectives have been gained during my career, spanning over 40 years, as a protection engineer at a midsized electric utility and as a consultant to various electric power entities throughout the world. Through this experience, I believe that I have gained a peek into, and an appreciation of, many of the significant issues that confront and challenge engineers attempting to develop a background and intuition in power system protection. The insights presented are personal and practical, more than theoretical, and are intended to add a real-life perspective to the text. It is hoped that this material will help put various protection practices into a clearer perspective and provide useful information to improve the effectiveness of engineers working in the highly challenging and rewarding field of protective relaying.

Preface to the Second Edition: This new edition of Protective Relaying has been written to update and expand the treatment of many important topics in the first edition, which was published in 1987. The structure is similar to that of the first edition, but each chapter has been carefully reviewed and changes have been made throughout to clarify material, present advances in relaying for the protection of power systems, and add additional examples. The chapter on generator protection has been completely rewritten to reflect current governmental rules and regulations. Many figures are now displayed in a more compact form, which makes them easier to refer to. As in the first edition, additional problems are provided at the back of the book for further study. I have tried again to present the material in a straightforward style, focusing on what will be most useful to the reader. I hope that this volume will be as well received as the first edition was.

Preface to the First Edition: Protective relaying is a vital part of any electric power system: unnecessary during normal operation but very important during trouble, faults, and abnormal disturbances. Properly applied protective relaying initiates the disconnection of the trouble area while operation and service in the rest of the system continue. 

This book presents the fundamentals and basic technology of application of protective relays in electric power systems and documents the protection practices in common use. The objective is to provide a useful reference for practicing engineers and technicians as well as a practical book for collegelevel courses in the power field. Applications with examples are included for both utility and industrial–commercial systems generally operating above 480 V. Protective relay designs vary with different manufacturers and are constantly changing, especially as solid-state technology impacts this area. However, protective relaying applications remain the same: relatively independent of designs and their trends. As a result, design aspects are not emphasized in this book. This area is best covered by individual manufacturer’s information. Protective relaying can be considered a vertical specialty with a horizontal vantage point; thus, although specialized, it is involved with and requires knowledge of all of the equipment required in the generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization of electrical power. In addition, it requires an understanding of how the system performs normally as well as during faults and abnormal conditions. As a result, this subject provides an excellent background for specialized study in any of the individual areas and is especially important for system planning, operation, and management. 

Friends and associates of 50 years and students within Westinghouse, the IEEE, CIGRE, many utilities, and industrial companies around the world have directly or indirectly contributed to this book. Their contributions and support are gratefully acknowledged. 

Special acknowledgment and thanks are extended to Rich Duncan for his enthusiastic encouragement and support during the preparation of this manuscript and to W.A. Elmore, T.D. Estes, C.H. Griffin, R.E. Hart, C.J. Heffernan, and H.J. Li for photographic and additional technical help. In addition, I express my gratitude to Dr. Eileen Gardiner of Marcel Dekker, Inc., who most patiently encouraged and supported this effort.
