From & To
Bus IDs for the connecting buses of a current transformer are designated as From and To buses. If aterminal of current transformer (From or To) is not connected to any bus, a blank entry will be shown forbus ID. If a terminal of a current transformer is connected to a branch (directly or indirectly), the ID of the branch will be displayed for the terminal connection. To connect or reconnect a current transformer toa bus, select a bus from the list box. The one-line diagram will be updated to show the new connectionafter you click on OK. Note that you can only connect to buses that reside in the same view where thecurrent transformer resides, i.e., you cannot connect to a bus that resides in Dumpster or in anothercomposite network.If a current transformer is connected to a bus through a number of other protective devices, reconnectionof the current transformer to a new bus from this editor will reconnect the last existing protective deviceto the new bus, as shown below where CT2 is reconnected from Bus10 to Bus4.ETAP displays the
nominal kV of the buses next to the From and To bus IDs for your convenience.
Check the Reverse Polarity box to change the polarity of the current transformer.
The operating condition can be set by clicking on the radio buttons for either In Service or Out of Service.The engineering properties within the editor of an Out of Service element can be edited like an In Serviceelement; however, an Out of Service element will not be included in any system studies. When thecontinuity check is activated, an Out of Service element is automatically color coded with the deenergizedcolor (theme manager). The default color for a deenergized element is grey.
: The In/Out of Service option is independent of the configuration status. Therefore, you can set abranch to be In Service for the Base Data and Out of Service in Revision Data.
State is used to describe the service status of an element. Certain states have flexible service status likeAs-Built, New, Future, Moved and Modified can be both In or Out of Service. Certain states have fixedservice status like Removed, Warehouse, Abandoned, Repair Shop and Other are out of service states.
