Prerequisite
Electrical Power Systems II
Rationale
This subject is a core subject and very important for any practicing electrical engineer. The electrical engineer has to deal with many switchgears and protection systems of various elements of power systems. The subject curriculum focuses on the study of fundamentals of power system protection, electromagnetic relays which are important one. It also covers the protection of feeders, transmission lines, transformers, generators and induction motors. The subject deals with the principles of circuit breaking and circuit breaker fundamentals. It also covers the working principle of protective switch gears like CT and PT. The topics covered in the curriculum are chosen in such a way that the students get a very good idea of the underlying principles of switchgear and protection.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Explain the purposes of protection, in relation to major types of apparatus, protection principle, dangers and criteria.
2. Choose and justify a suitable protection system for a specified application.
3. Analyze and compare specified protection systems
4. Compare merits of various principles, relay hardware and interrupting devices.
5. Compare the different type of circuit breakers performance based on which selection of circuit breaker can be made for a given application

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU
