Reviews

'Distributed energy resources connected to the distribution system, as well as the requirements for reducing the fault clearing time are some of the drivers for a different approach to distribution systems protection. That is why the third edition of Protection of Electricity Distribution Networks is a timely update of the popular book that represents a practical resource for graduate students, practicing engineers and many others with interest in the subject. The authors of the book are two engineers with huge practical and teaching experience that well understand the subject matter, as well as how to present it in an understandable manner.'
