Most widely held works by Vladimir Gurevich:

Electric relays : principles and applications

16 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gurevich (Israel Electric Corporation) reviews the basic principles of relay construction and the major functional parts, and explains the operation of reed, high-voltage, electronic, time, thermal, protective current, power, differential, distance, frequency, and microprocessor- based relays. For each type of relay, the book provides descriptions

Electronic devices on discrete components for industrial and power engineering

14 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covers operating principles and examples of functional units for automation devices. This book provides descriptions of different functional units and automation devices for industry and power engineering that have been implemented with modern discrete electronic elements instead of microelectronics or microprocessor-based technologies

Protection devices and systems for high-voltage applications

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication discusses general problems related to the structure of current overload protection systems in high voltage (HV) electrical installations and introduces a family of new devices based on reed switch contacts, solid-state units, hybrid technology and automatic systems based on these components. It highlights their application in high voltage (5 to 100 kV) power supplies, power lasers and radar, RF-generators and protection systems for class 6 to 24 kV distribution networks

Digital protective relays : problems and solutions

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Microprocessor-based digital protection relays seem to be dominating all other types of protection relays. This book explains how to choose digital relays correctly, how to ensure their correct use, and how to avoid multiple problems. Focusing on solutions, the text describes specific technical problems associated with digital relays and suggests ways to solve them. It also covers the construction of functional assemblies of real relays existing in the market, drawbacks and problems of digital relays, and the danger of deliberate electromagnetic effect onto digital relays. Alternative (non-mic

Power supply devices and systems of relay protection

8 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book describes the arrangement, mode of action and problems of secondary power supplies of digital protective relays, stationary accumulator batteries, battery chargers, uninterruptible power supplies and auxiliary AC and DC power supply systems of substation and power plants. It reviews the issues of insulation monitoring in DC systems, the problems of monitoring the integrity of substation battery circuit, problems of voltage dips and how to address them as well as a number of other questions that arise in the course of the exploitation of auxiliary power systems and the on-site needs of substations and power plants."

Protection of substation critical equipment against intentional electromagnetic threats

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The modern microprocessor based electronic equipment most vulnerable to Intentional Destructive Electromagnetic Interferences (IDEI) includes High-Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP) in all substation equipment. However, power equipment and especially transformers are also subject to the influence of HEMP. The book discusses problems and solutions for both kinds of substation equipment. Separated into eight chapters, the book covers: Technological progress and its consequences; Intentional Destructive Electromagnetic Interferences (IDEI); Methods and means of Digital Protective Relay (DPR) protection from electromagnetic pulse; Passive methods and means of DPR protection from electromagnetic pulse; Active methods and means of DPR protection from electromagnetic pulse; Tests of DPR resistance to IDEI impacts; Organizational and technical measures to protect DPR from HEMP; and Protection of power equipment and transformers from HEMP. Key features: - Practical approach focusing on technical solutions for difficult problems. - Full data on electromagnetic threats and methods of their prevention are concentrated. - Addresses a gap in knowledge in the power system industry. This book emphasizes practical recommendations on protection of power substations' electric equipment from IDEI that intended for not only staff operating electric equipment, but also for manufacturers of this equipment, specialists of designing companies, managers of electric energy industry as well as for teachers and postgraduate students
