Transients in Power Systems

Transients in Power systems: Simple switching transients, Circuit closing and recovery transients, Arcing grounds, double frequency transients, Damping, resistance switching

Abnormal Switching Transients: Current chopping, Capacitance switching, Ferro-resonance, Transformer magnetizing inrush currents, re-striking phenomenon and its effects on recovery voltage.

Transients in three phase circuits: Switching of three phase transformers, effect of types of neutral connection, three phase capacitance switching, Symmetrical component method of analysis of three phase switching transients, effect of open conductors

Traveling Waves: Traveling waves in transmission lines, reflection and refraction of waves, Typical cases and effects of line terminators, Equivalent circuit for traveling wave studies, Forked line , Reactive termination, Bewley lattice diagram, multi conductor systems.

Lightning: Lightning phenomenon, Line design based on direct strokes, over voltage due to lightning.

Protection against transients: Protection of power systems against transient over-voltage due to switching and lightning, lightning arrestors, surge diverters, surge capacitors, and reactors, Overhead ground wires, Insulation Coordination, Computer aids to calculate transient (EMTP)
