Part 3: Electrical control systems

This part is based on a manuscript prepared by S.L. Vaidya and B. Oettli. (S.L. Vaidya is the sucessor of B. Oettli as Head of Hydropower Departement at BYS. Nepal)

This part concentrates on the design of the electrical control, protection & instrumentation systems for an isolated or small grid.

In addition, a few important facts concerning auxiliary equipment like cables and components for lightning protection will be briefly discussed.

Finally, with a special view to installation and operation of the equipment, a few crucial points like transportation of equipment, load management or capacitive load factors in cable networks will be highlighted.

The objective is to provide some specific tools in a narrow field which are practical and well proven and can be applied fairly straight forward.
