The successive electrical transients caused by system faults and subsequent switching operations associated with the widely practiced technique of automatic high-speed reclosing give rise to mechanical stresses in nearby turbine-generators. Depending upon many factors, these stresses may exceed the endurance limit of certain machine parts and thus cause… CONTINUE READING
