Application Notes on Setting Brush MICROTRIP Recloser Controllers I. Recloser Models

This is a summary of the data a CAPE user must provide for the Brush MICROTRIP recloser controller. Typical STYLE used in CAPE is as follows: Style MICROTRIP Properties General purpose controller style for model MICROTRIP, suitable for use with all applicable recloser switchgear.

For details of the recloser, refer to the description in the Brush Instruction Manual No55/4118. II. Recloser Elements

The recloser contains phase and ground overcurrent elements, with separate settings possible for quick and delayed trip.

Element Settings

On the element forms, set only the necessary contact logic codes; other settings are taken from the common taps. You can also change the settings from CAPE CG using the forms or using DRAG_CURVE. The new common taps are computed automatically from the element settings. VI. Contact Logic Element
Ground CLP Ground TCC1 Ground TCC2 Ground TCC3 Ground TCC4 Phase CLP Phase TCC1 Phase TCC2 Phase TCC3 Phase TCC4 SEF TCC1 SEF TCC2 SEF TCC3 SEF TCC4

Suggested contact logic codes: Contact Logic Code


GND_CLP GND_TCC1 GND_TCC2 GND_TCC3 GND_TCC4 PHS_CLP PHS_TCC1 PHS_TCC2 PHS_TCC3 PHS_TCC4 SEF_TCC1 SEF_TCC2 SEF_TCC3 SEF_TCC4

If there are duplicates from other reclosers in the same LZOP, you may add the prefix "MICROTRIP_" , e.g. "MICROTRIP_GND_TCC1". The LZOP LOGIC (e.g. MICROTRIP_TRIP) for all elements is PHS_TCC1 OR PHS_TCC2 OR PHS_TCC3 OR PHS_TCC4 OR GND_TCC1 OR GND_TCC2 OR GND_TCC3 OR GND_TCC4 OR SEF_TCC1 OR SEF_TCC2 OR SEF_TCC3 OR SEF_TCC4 OR PHS_CLP OR GND_CLP

To prevent an element from tripping the logical breakers in its local zone of protection (LZOP), omit its contact-logic code from this expression. For ground elements alone, the expression would be: GND_TCC1 OR GND_TCC2 OR GND_TCC3 OR GND_TCC4 OR SEF_TCC1 OR SEF_TCC2 OR SEF_TCC3 OR SEF_TCC4 OR GND_CLP
