This book, written for engineers, technicians, designers and operators working with electrical networks, contains theoretical and practical information on the design and set-up of protection systems. It starts by covering network structures and grounding systems together with problems that can occur in networks, and then goes on to discuss current and voltage transformers, protection functions, circuit breakers and fuses.
