Power System Protection and Protective Relaying Links

Web sites related to power system protection and relaying. I hope this list is fairly comprehensive and international for relay, software, and test set mfrs, but in several areas it reflects where I live and work, the USA. The page is non-commercial; clicking on a link or including a link does not benefit me. Please send suggestions and companies I've missed to: johnhorak@p-r-eng.com (@ Protective Relay Engineering Inc).
