iT IS ISMILAR TO THE GROUND RESITOR CALCULATION FOR TRANSFOMER

THE TYPICAL EXAMPLE WAS ANSWERED EARLIER FOR TRANSFORMER DT.19-06-2009
Neutral of transformer can be grounded solidly earthed OR with Neutral Grounded with
Resistance.
Typical shunt calculations fro 5 MAV 11/6.6 kv transformer neutral are as :_
Transformer rating = 5 MVA
Voltage ratio = 11/6.6 KV
Vector Group = Dyn11 (6.6 KV ground through Resistor)
During Earth fault voltage between Neutral & Earth = 6.6/√3 = 3.81 KV
Earth Fault current will be limited to = 5 x 10³ /(√3 x 6.6) = 437.38Amp.
N.G.R. value in ohm = V / I = (3.81 x 10³) / 437.38 = 8.71 Ohm
Value of N.G.R. is 437.38 Amp, 8.71 Ohm., 10 Sec
NGR are inserted On Higher voltage to restrict earth fault current
