[more] Power system transients can be due to steady-state load currents, dynamic operat ions as well as faults. Their presence in power systems has detrimental impacts on the operation of protective relays. For the purpose of testing the possible p erformance of relays under transient conditions, it is necessary to evaluate the potential influence of the transients, based on which the classification of tra nsients can be made. In this chapter, the effect of component switching on relay s in transmission systems is evaluated, based on which a database can be set up for testing relaysâ immunity against mal- trips. A methodology is developed for over current relays and impedance relays, and applied to component switching events o bserved by the relay on the line being switched.
