Distribution Automation Handbook

The handbook describes various power distribution system constructions and elements there-of, technical considerations, distribution automation infrastructure and functionality, communication aspects, special automation applications and life cycle aspects. It also reveals some trends and future possibilities of distribution automation.

The handbook is targeted for power distribution applications following IEC guidelines and practices, even though many of the distribution automation principles can also be applied in power distribution applications based on ANSI guidelines.

The editorial work is done by several professors teaching in universities as well as managers and experts working in ABB. The different chapters/sub-chapters will be completed in no special order. 


Please find the chapters/sections of the Distribution Automation Handbook that have been published.
