Need help-EE 777K: POWER SYSTEMS PROTECTION  Graduate Student(s):      Undergraduate Student(s):  Name and myWSU ID of group members:
Last Name First Name MyWSU ID
Objective:  As an engineer, you should be able to understand new technologies quickly and communicate the information to both technical and non-technical colleagues. As graduate students, you should have the skills to do RESEARCH on any topics. This research project should help you further develop these skills.
Expectation:  Select a topic related to CURRENT technologies in the wide area of power system protection. You can choose a topic from the given list or find a suitable topic. The report may be written about a technology itself or about applications of a technology. Selection of the topic is an important part of this assignment. Once you have decided on the topic you want to do an extended search in gathering information. You could use WSU library to browse electric power related publications (e.g. IEEE spectrum, IEEE Power Engineering Review, IEEE Trans. on Power Delivery, IEEE Trans. on Power System, IEEE trans. on Smart Grid, Electrical World, Transmission and Distribution, Power, and other magazines covering electric power issues). You are encouraged to use web search engines (e.g. google, wiki, ask, yahoo, etc.) and websites (,,, etc.). Confirm that your selection is current and relevant.    Get familiarized with the interlibrary loan facility at WSU library. This could be the ideal source for most current information if the full text is not available online. The process can take up to two weeks. You are presenting this to your client. They need specific information that will allow them to make a decision and then begin to develop applications of the technology.  They will not need history or fundamental engineering formulas. The history or fundamental engineering relationships formulas, etc. are NOT important.  Make sure your presentation conveys the vital information about the technology. Pictures can presents lots of words.
Group Members:  Graduate students may work in groups up to two; Undergraduate students may work in groups up to three.
Deadlines:  The schedule for the research report is as follows: Dec. 1st to Dec 8th, 2016  Presentation for research topic Dec. 13th, 2016:   Final report due.
Late submissions will NOT be accepted.
Plagiarism:  Paper should be written in your own words. Directly copying any information (text, figures, equations, etc.) from any source without attributing it to the source is considered as plagiarism. Any form of plagiarism will result in getting ‘0’ for the assignment.
