ThisBook:
Includes extensive use of graphics and photographs to visually convey the book’s concepts
Provides applicable IEEE industry standards in each chapter
Is written by industry experts who have an average of 25 to 30 years of industry experience
Presents a new chapter addressing the key role of the substation in Smart Grids
Editor John McDonald and this very impressive group of contributors cover all aspects of substations,
from the initial concept through design, automation, and operation. The book’s chapters—which delve into
physical and cyber-security, commissioning, and energy storage—are written as tutorials and provide
referencesforfurtherreadingandstudy.
Several chapter authors are members of the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Substations Committee
andaretheactualexpertswhoaredevelopingthestandardsthatgovernallaspectsofsubstations.Asa
result, this book contains the most recent technological developments in industry practice and standards.
