Learning the ANSI fault

Learning the ANSI fault

Learning the ANSI fault

I am very familiar with the IEC 60909 fault study methodology but now need to learn the ANSI one as well.

Any recommendations for a good explanatory text on the subject? I sometimes find articles written by manufacturers or others on a subject likes this makes for easier to understand reading. I'm not sure what is the full code ANSI C37? IEEE141?


RE: Learning the ANSI fault

"A Practical Guide to Short Circuit Calculations" by Conrad St. Pierre. Contact training@easypower.com. Best reference by far on ANSI C37 SC calculations and breaker duties. Full disclosure - I do some work for Easypower. Conrad was a long-time GE engineer. He self-published this book after he retired from GE. See also IEEE Violet Book (IEEE 551)
