Agenda

Why protection is needed


Principles and elements of the protection
system
Basic protection schemes
Digital relay advantages and enhancements

Disturbances: Light or
Severe
The power system must maintain acceptable
operation 24 hours a day
Voltage and frequency must stay within certain limits

Small disturbances
The control system can handle these
Example: variation in transformer or generator load

Severe disturbances require a protection


system
They can jeopardize the entire power system
They cannot be overcome by a control system

Power System Protection


Operation during severe disturbances:
System element protection
System protection
Automatic reclosing
Automatic transfer to alternate power supplies
Automatic synchronization

is to protect persons and primary electric
power equipment from the effects of faults

FAULTS ON POWER SYSTEMS RISK :


Severe damage to the faulted equipment :
Excessive current may flow;
Causes burning of conductors or equipment
windings;
Arcing - energy dissipation;
Risk of explosions for oil - filled switchgear, or
when in hazardous environments.
Damage to adjacent plant :
As the fault evolves, if not cleared quickly;
Due to the voltage depression / loss of supply.

Mechanical Damage During

supports, transformers, and machines

Protective relays:

A device which detect intolerable or


unwanted conditions within the assigned
area.
* A watchman or watchdog for the
equipment/area
* Silent sentinels to power system.

How relays are


differentiated?

Can be differentiated based on:


* Functional categories
* Input quantities
*Operating Principles
* Performance Characteristics.

What are various design


criteria?

* Dependability/Reliability
* Security
* Selectivity
*Speed
* Simplicity/flexibility
*Stability
*Performance Vs. Economy

What are various technique


used?

* Electromechanical
*Solid state/Static
* Microprocessor/Numerical

Non-Unit, or Unrestricted
Protection :
No specific point downstream up to which
protection will protect

Will operate for faults on the protected


equipment;
May also operate for faults on downstream
equipment, which has its own protection;
Need for discrimination with downstream
protection, usually by means of time grading.

Unit, or Restricted
Protection :
Has an accurately defined zone of
protection
An item of power system plant is
protected as a unit;
Will not operate for out of zone
faults, thus no back-up protection
for downstream faults.

How Do Relays Detect


When a fault takes place, the current,
Faults?
voltage, frequency, and other electrical

variables behave in a peculiar way. For


example:
Current suddenly increases
Voltage suddenly decreases

Relays can measure the currents and the


voltages and detect that there is an
overcurrent, or an undervoltage, or a
combination of both
Many other detection principles determine
the design of protective relays

Differential Protection
Summary
The overcurrent differential scheme is simple
and economical, but it does not respond well
to unequal current transformer performance

The percentage differential scheme


responds better to CT saturation
Percentage differential protection can be
analyzed in the relay and the alpha plane
Differential protection is the best alternative
selectivity/speed with present technology

Why study this


protection scheme??

Protection scheme plays a vital & important role


for the normal operation or the steady state
operation of different components of power system
network, which must be reliable, fast and efficient.
In order to achieve all these features, it is essential
that these should be proper care in designing and
choosing an appropriate and efficient protection
scheme.

The protective relays functions as the brain


behind the whole schemes
