Product Description

About the Author

Juan M. Gers obtained his BSc in Electrical Engineering at the University of Valle, Colombia, in 1977, his MSc in Power Systems Technology at the University of Salford, UK, in 1981 and his PhD at the University of Strathclyde, Scotland in 1998 for his research on Distribution Automation. In 1981 he founded the consulting firm GERS S.A. in Colombia, and a subsidiary company GERS USA in Florida in 2000; both companies specialise in system studies and designing and commissioning electrical engineering projects. Ted Holmes graduated from Queen Mary, University of London, in 1950 and joined the Central Electricity Generating Board, first commissioning power stations and 132 kV substations in eastern England, and then taking responsibility for the co-ordination of protection in substations and power stations in South West England. He later became System Design Engineer in the Midlands and in 1969 moved to the Midlands Electricity Board with responsibility for the planning of the Board s primary networks. In 1987 he became a freelance consultant lecturing on power distribution systems.

Really good for curious Engineer 5 April 2010

The contain is refering to many data of setup equipment which needed for new curious engineer. I wish I could have this book several years ago.
Poorly written book 30 Dec 2012
By Chris Farley - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is poorly written. Author seems to be mathematically incompetent not distinguishing for example between a complex number and its magnitude and being sloppy and inconsistent in presentation. Quite a few typos on important points. His analysis on relay protection copies the great GE reference on the Art and Science of protective relaying at various places. His analysis on distance relaying is a disaster written by a person that seems not to understand the details behind it. The author is a very poor instructor in addition to be mathematically incompetent. Quite disappointed. Do not buy his book. Look for an alternative instead.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book 2 month ago. It is an Excellent book for understanding protection. Covers all aspects of protection in distribution networks. Good introduction in other areas such as alarm processing. Excellent work.
