This is an update on the Substation Model Project, you can read info about it here.
I have aquired some great resources for the project and the best book I have ever come accross is this...
Electric Power Substations Engineering 1st 2nd and 3rd Editions by John D McDonald. I have the 2nd Edition and the author has gone really deep into this matter.
