Modern Distribution Network Protection

Research Laboratory

In recent years, the paradigm of active distribution systems is being realized by the innovations in the small-scale distributed energy resources (DER) such as photovoltaics, wind turbines, fuel cells, and storage devices. Development of an efficient protection strategy is of great importance for the modern distribution network operation to prevent power loss and serious threats to the human life and network equipment.

    There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.
    Ray Goforth
    Hard work is painful when life is devoid of purpose. But when you live for something greater than yourself and the gratification of your own ego, then hard work becomes a labor of love.
    Steve Pavlina
    Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.
    Brian Tracy
    I know you've heard it a thousand times before. But it's true -- hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don't love something, then don't do it.
