    When we hear the word computer today, we automatically think of a digital, general purpose, programmable device. From laptops to paralleled supercomputers, they all share these characteristics. However, before there was digital, there was analog. Before there was general purpose, there was special purpose. Before there was programmable, there was hard wired. Before there was UNIVAC, or even ENIAC,... View full abstract»

    Microprocessor relays are fundamentally different from protective relay technologies used in the past. Many paradigms that drove designs in the past are no longer valid. This article describes many design concepts that can be used to improve the performance, reliability, robustness, and fault tolerance of protection and control systems. The design concepts that are presented in this article are ba... View full abstract»

  • Finding fault - Locating a ground fault in low-voltage, high-resistance grounded systems via the single-processor concept for circuit protection

    High-resistance grounded systems have distinct advantages over solidly grounded systems in facilities where very reliable delivery of power to the loads is desirable. Unlike solidly grounded systems, resistance- grounded systems are able to operate continuously with one unintentional ground. However, this is true for only the first ground fault. A second ground fault on another phase and circuit b... View full abstract»

    The LPS is a valuable addition to facilities that currently utilize cogeneration that may not provide the entire facility load during a utility interruption. While not exhaustive, this article has discussed the essential elements of the design and implementation of an LPS for an industrial facility. View full abstract»

    The results of a one-year power-quality study (2004-2005) in the Mazandaran Wood and Paper Industries (MWPI) are presented in this article. The effects of voltage distortion on the operation of electric drives are discussed. To provide detailed analysis of the system, one of the DC motor drive systems is simulated using Matlab/Simulink in the presence of voltage sag and the results are presented. ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3600 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This article outlines the details surrounding the testing of medium voltage control center equipment to permit it to be certified to present arc-resistant standards. The intent of this article is to improve the understanding of the dynamics of an arc fault and how new arc-resistant equipment designs can protect personnel from exposure to electrical arc hazards in industrial settings.

  • In a flash - Use of instantaneous trip functions with current-limiting fuses to reduce arc flash energy without losing coordination

    Arc flash hazard studies have forced engineers to rethink many of the irrefutable concepts of coordination. Absolute coordination can limit the amount of the power system deenergized by a fault. But is this achieved at the cost of increased damage to equipment and increased hazards to personnel who happen to be near the point of a fault? It can possibly take far longer to recover from a fault that... View full abstract»
