Switching transients severe enough to cause problems in industrial power systems are most often associated with inadequate or malfunctioning breakers or switches and the switching of capacitor banks and other frequently switched loads. The arc furnace system is most frequently studied because of its high frequency of switching and the related use of capacitor banks.

By properly using digital computer programs these problems can be detected early in the design stage. In addition to these types of switching transient problems, digital computer programs can be used to analyse other system anomalies such as lightning arrester operation.

This course begins with a discussion of the switching transient phenomena, describes root causes and explains how system operation is affected. Selection and sizing of surge arresters is covered in detail. The techniques and concepts discussed in this course can be implemented in any commercial power system software package.
