    The purpose of this tutorial is to introduce the basics of wavelet analysis and propose how this new mathematical tool may be applied in power engineering. Frequently, newcomers to wavelet analysis become discouraged due to the oftentimes elusive mathematical rigor of the subject and the variety of nomenclatures that are used in various arenas. This tutorial presents wavelet analysis in such a way... View full abstract»

    Protective devices (relays) are the first line of defense against faults and other disturbances that could do extensive damage to power equipment as well as to power systems. They are the most important self-healing mechanisms of power systems. Modern protective systems have evolved into a highly reliable system over many years. As most of the evolution took place during the era of vertically inte... View full abstract»

    In today's electric power systems, generation relies almost exclusively on many AC generating units operating in parallel. When a new generating unit is being connected to the system, a variety of conditions must be precisely satisfied, including the amplitude, frequency, and phase conditions. This article describes a new method for establishing the advance time, which is the most important parame... View full abstract»
