The Relay Testing Handbook

The Relay Testing Handbook Series

An Essential Relay Testing Handbook Series for Technicians

The Relay Testing Handbook series is a comprehensive series of nine guides, each of which covers a specific relay testing topic. Any technician who has ever been faced with a confusing or challenging situation in the field will appreciate that a relay tester, not an engineer, wrote these books. This practical resource will give you the tools you need to test almost any type of protective relay, no matter who the manufacturer is.

Some of the topics included in The Relay Testing Handbook series include:

  • Basic electrical fundamentals
  • Basic relay testing fundamentals
  • Relay testing equipment options and how to use them
  • Information about the most commonly applied protective elements (50/51/67/59/27/81/87/21 protection)
    • Theory
    • Application
    • Step-by-step test procedures
    • Tip and tricks to overcome common problems
  • Relay testing approaches and how to select the best ones
  • Test plans with real-world applications
  • Many examples from multiple manufacturers and test-set models

These handbooks are designed to teach you the broad principles that can be directly applied in the field so you can approach any relay testing situation with confidence. You will not only learn how to translate the digital logic used by relay manufacturers into familiar concepts, but you will also be able to create and apply your own test plans based on best practices.

The Relay Testing Handbook is such a respected resource that is a required textbook for the 2013 Electrical Engineering Technology program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and is used by these organizations in their training programs:

  • Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E)
  • The Northern Alberta Institute of Alberta (NAIT)
  • Tri-State Generation and Transmission
  • Electrical Reliability Services (Emerson/ERS)
  • Xcel Energy

  • Arizona Public Service (APS)
  • Northern Michigan University
  • Kansas City Power & Light
  • Tri-County Electrical Cooperative
  • Snohomish County PUD
  • USBR
  • Northwest Iowa Community College

Whether you need just one handbook to learn more about a specific topic, or the whole series to cover the entire spectrum of relay testing, every technician can benefit from The Relay Testing Handbook.

Purchase individual volumes as needed, or get eight volumes in the hardcover book for the best value.

The seventh volume, End-to-End Testing, is sold separately, so be sure to add it to your order for the complete set. This important volume provides step-by-step procedures for performing successful end-to-end tests and valuable information about some of the most common communication-assisted protection schemes.
