    Abstract: Critical Clearing Time (CCT) is the largest possible time for which a power system is allowed to remain in fault condition without losing stability. Appropriate CCTs settings of protective equipments on power system greatly determine the reliability of power supply. This paper determines the CCTs for all the transmission lines in the Nigerian 24-bu... Show More
