Power System Protection and Switchgear: A Comprehensive Guide to the Theory and Practice of Power System Protection
Power system protection is a branch of electrical engineering that deals with the design, operation and maintenance of devices and systems that protect the power system from faults and disturbances. Switchgear is the collective term for the equipment that controls, isolates and protects the power system components.

In this article, we will provide an overview of the book Power System Protection and Switchgear by Oza et al., which is a comprehensive guide to the subject of power system protection. The book covers both the theoretical concepts and the practical applications of power system protection, with an emphasis on digital relays and microprocessor-based systems. The book also discusses the latest developments and trends in the field of power system protection.
The book consists of 15 chapters, organized into four parts. The first part introduces the basics of power system protection, such as circuit breaking fundamentals, constructional aspects and testing of circuit breakers, relay operating principles, relay characteristics and relay settings. The second part covers the protection schemes for various power system components, such as generators, transformers, transmission lines, bus zones and induction motors. The third part deals with digital relays, microprocessor-based relays and digital signal processors for power system protection. The fourth part presents some special topics, such as differential protection, distance protection, pilot relaying schemes, carrier current protection, static relays and numerical relays.
The book offers a blend of application practices and theoretical concepts to comprehend the subject of power system protection. Theoretical support and mathematical background is given in the text to support key concepts. It provides an insight into the philosophy and requirements of relaying systems. The book also includes numerous solved examples, practice questions and objective type questions for easy understanding of topics. Some of the features of the book are:
Discussion on circuit breaking fundamentals, constructional aspects and testing of circuit breakers
