His work includes providing application and product support and technical training for protective relay users. He is an active member of the IEEE Power System Relaying Committee and chairman of the Working Group on Distance Element Response to Distorted Waveforms. Karl receivedhis BSEE degree at the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign and has over 20 years of experience in system protection. He is a past speaker at many technical conferences and has authored over 20 papers and application guides on protective relaying.
ith this inaugural issue, SEL introduces the Journal of Reliable Power. This regularly published journal will present aseries of papers with lasting value that focuses on the fundamentals of power reliability. We believe that the concepts, case studies, technologies, and issues that the Journal covers will be applicable to power engineers working for utilities, industrial and commercial facilities, government, and academia. Each issue of the Journal will focus on a broad topic area or theme. The theme of this firstissue, guest-edited by SEL Senior Power Engineer Karl Zimmerman and Principal Systems Engineer Bogdan Kasztenny, with the combined technical expertise of many SEL authors, is line distance protection, where SEL got its start. Future themes will include the application of digital communications in protection and control, distribution automation and protection (“smart grid”), communications forcritical infrastructure, synchronous measurement and control, and advances in protection methods. The second issue, edited by SEL Senior Automation System Engineer Tim Tibbals, will focus on communications and protocols. We welcome your suggestions for topics as well. Several outstanding publications in the electric power industry today communicate important ideas, applications, successes, and trends...
