The relay can be used to provide selective protection for overhead and underground distribution feeders. The total impedance of the relay and the series stabilising resistor is usually low enough to prevent the current transformers developing voltages over 2kV during maximum internal faults. generators and HV feeder circuits and the protection of neutral earthing resistors. is performed via an analogue-to-digital converter.

MCGG 52 Two phase overcurrent plus earth fault with instantaneous elements. Application diagrams are provided in Figures 2 to 8 (inclusive) showing typical wiring configurations. This can be easily disabled in applications where it is not required. For applications where the instantaneous earth fault element is required to have a sensitive setting whilst remaining stable on heavy through faults the use of a stabilising resistor is recommended. changes in system configuration can be readily accommodated. each measuring board utilising a microcomputer as a basic circuit element. An instantaneous element with low transient overreach is incorporated within each phase or earth fault measuring board.

With all the current/time characteristics available on one relay. MCGG 62 Three phase overcurrent with instantaneous elements. The relay uses solid state techniques. the CT circuits are short circuited before the connections to the output contacts and the dc supply are broken. The current transformers for this application must satisfy the criteria detailed under ‘Current transformer requirements’ in Technical Data. phase inputs may be combined on to one board for polyphase measurement (see table). when the module is removed. The case incorporates one or two terminal blocks for external connections. Description This range of MCGG relays is designed so that versions are available with separate measuring boards for each phase or earth fault input. together with the other circuits of the relay. Removal of the module automatically short circuits the current transformer connections by means of safety contacts within the case terminal block.
