Methodology We connected the CDG36 electromechanical Overcurrent and earth fault relay U10 to CT1 on the simulator and set it to trip after 1 second for a fault at faults point RTS5. INTRODUCTION In this modern society. After this has been done. being Electrical power engineering student.2 1.1sec Tms Psm 0. the trip times of the relays was measured for faults at other points on the simulator system and this will be compared with the trip times for a fault at the end of the system.19 1 1 1 ELECTRICAL PROTECTION III PRACTICAL REPORT II 21033151 . Protective relays play an integral part in protection scheme and have an impact on the quality and continuity of supply to the consumer.28 0. different experiments were carried out a simulator which was used to set up various faults and perform different setting on relays in order to tie up the theory acquired during class session and the practical.

To ensure the continuity of supply.1sec 1.13 0. setting of the relays and the understanding of their operation are of great importance. They are used to detect faults and to send information to circuit breakers in order to interrupt the defective part while allowing power to flow through remaining parts of the scheme and preventing further damage to other equipment.27 0.

In this practical. b. 3. OBJECTIVE The objective of this practical was to set 3 relays to operate at various times for a fault at the end of the simulator line and then to check that they are graded. we checked to see whether the relay was going to trip after one second for an earth fault on each phase.26 0.

This is because in a delta configuration there is no ground therefore no presence of zero phase sequence component.19 1 1 No tripping 1 1 No tripping 1 0.19 c.18 0.9sec 0. overcurrent relays disk placed into the line will turn. and a trip coil.19 0.19 1 0. 7SJ50 relay on the simulator.

5.5sec c.7 sec for:  Phase to phase fault (R-Y)  Phase to earth fault (R-E)  3 Phase fault (RST) Example PSM calculations: CT Ratio= 5/1 A Current setting = 100% Fault current = 40A (assumed) Ipu =current setting* Ict (rated secondary) =100%*1=1A If (relay coil) =If*1/5=40*0. The following fault was applied at fault point RTS5 where we have repeated practical 2A but having set the time to 0.680 0. in this circuit where a motor and generator set connected via transformer to two overhead lines.2 Yd1 RTS5 0.1 0.

This practical was repeated as for practical 2A b.1 0.55sec Blue to earth YY RST5 1.2 0. Methodology We did connect another 7SJ50 overcurrent and earth fault relay to CT11 and set it to trip after 0.4 Dd0 RTS5 0.3 seconds for a fault at fault RST5 with the transformer set to YY.665 0. Then the circuit was connected to the power source.633 0.

CONCLUSION The results therefore prove that the circuit breaker opening time and the relay operating time are different in regards to different fault conditions in comparison to the electromagnetic relay. It can be noted that the time taken to trip for an earth fault was longer than that of a phase-to-phase fault. The total time for the operation of a circuit breaker can be calculated for each fault: total operating time= relay operating time + circuit breaker opening time. The relays do not trip the transformer configuration has a delta in its secondary because there is no earth as commented in practical 2A. ELECTRICAL PROTECTION III PRACTICAL REPORT II 21033151 .5 6. This is a result of the fact that an earth fault may have a different magnitude in current this in combination with the relay setting may cause greater or shorter time for activation of the relay.
