Electrical power systems have become ubiquitous in a world that is largely dependent on electrical networks and devices. Ensuring that electric power systems are in optimal working order is essential to ensuring that there is a continued supply of energy to the systems and devices that we depend on daily.

Transformative Advancements in Power System Protection emphasizes essential tools, technologies, and concepts for securing electrical systems and ensuring that these systems are free from faults that could be detrimental to the entire electrical network. Presenting research-based methods for securing a variety of power systems, such as transmission lines, static VAR compensators, and generators, this video is designed for use by engineers, researchers, and graduate-level students in the field of electrical engineering.
