"""This book, with 16 chapters and five appendices, arguably may be the most comprehensive single volume on generator and motor protection on the market. ..".this book presents to practicing utility engineers a wealth of information that should be included in their library. Even those not directly involved in protection should have available to them the theory and practices associated with the protection described here
..".Throughout the book, typical protective equipment settings are calculated with appropriate reference to electromechanical, solid-state, and digital protective devices. Where required, the author resorts to the application of Excel and Mathcad.
""Protective Relaying for Power Generation Systems" is a recommended addition to every power engineer's library. The details may go beyond normal equipment protection requirements, but the depth of analysis, the data presented, and the qualitative discussion of all of the aspects involved in generator protection add a dimension not available in any single text.

Organizing material in a structure that allows for quick and easy reference, Protective Relaying for Power Generation Systems features an in-depth presentation of topics and specific information related to generators and motors. This book provides coverage of protective component considerations, including explanations of potential damage. It explores a broad range of subjects including detailed time decrement generator fault calculations and minimum excitation limits. The text contains Excel(R) and Mathcad(R) workbook constructions for performing protection-related calculations. This is a valuable resource for electric utility engineers and those working in the power industry and at generation facilities.
"!covers a wide range of topics and can help the reader to achieve basic understanding or deep knowledge of generator and motor protection, thus meeting the needs of both students and professionals! The author! has worked for more than 35 years in the design not only of generator and motor protection systems, but also substation, transmission, and distribution facilities. His system planning experience as well as the preparation and teaching of different protection related courses at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee allow him to present the material in the book in a clear and practical manner." --PAC World Magazine "Power engineers and application engineers who work with generator protective devices as well as power engineering students would find this book to be a great hands-on reference that reveals a wealth of information on generator protective relaying for power systems." -- John J. Shea, in IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, September/October 2007, Vol. 23, No. 5
