The protection of rotating machines

  • C. Christopoulos
  • A. Wright


A very large number of electrical machines of a wide range of types and ratings are used in power systems around the world. The vast majority of them have a rotating member, i.e. a rotor and a stator, and both members usually have windings associated with them.
