This detailed and comprehensive reference presents the latest developments in power system insulation coordinationaÂ€Â”emphasizing the achievement of optimum insulation strength at minimum cost. Comprehensively covering a myriad of insulation coordination techniques, the book examines electrical transmission and distribution lines and substations. Supplemented with end-of-chapter problem sets and over 1700 literature citations, tables, drawings, and equations, the book focuses on the conventional (or deterministic) method of insulation coordination, as well as the probabilistic method with its emphasis on statistical analysis.Nevertheless, until the time of the first 500 kV transmission, no lines had been designed using SOVs as a design criterion. ... considered, or the SOV probability distribution was unknown, and that (2) the theory and application of a probabilistic method had not been developed. ... The SOV distribution was obtained by use of the transient network analyzer (TNA) by random switching of the circuit breakeranbsp;...
