Very Good Book on Protection
Reviewed in the United States on March 19, 2020
First off, this book contains a lot of in-depth material. It is very detailed and contains most information you need for the protection field. However, this is not a book most people can just sit down and read. If you take it piece-by-piece, it is a joy to get through. As others have stated, the binding is not the best, so take extra care of your book. This book does expect you to fully grasp the concepts of power systems. If you have not already had exposure to fault analysis and symmetrical components, I suggest you first read a power system analysis book and then try to tackle this book.
If you already have experience in the protective relaying field, this book will serve as a great reference for you. If you are just getting into the field, or want to learn more about protection just for fun, I would suggest this book along with Fundamentals of Power System Protection (Paithankar, Bhide). Read a topic in Paithankar first (like transformer protection), and then read the same topic in Blackburn. Paithankar will give you a condensed and clear explanation of the basics on a topic, and then Blackburn will go into more depth.
