Power System Protection
Fall 2014

Class Project
Due Date: 14/01/2015 for All Students
You can form a team of three people (maximum) and each team member will receive the
same grade unless there is strong evidence about unequal effort among team members. You
may divide the work equally among yourselves and each of you should have a complete
understanding of the total project not just your part. LCD student will work individually.
They will have to put in more effort but their project grade will be from 15% instead of
Collaboration with other groups should be restricted to troubleshooting only. We realize
that, because you are all using the same data, your results may overlap but this is a design
exercise and your results will depend on your assumption and approach to the problem.
Nonetheless, evidence that project was done collaboratively will result in a MAJOR penalty
to your grade.
To receive full credit, projects must be turned in on the due date. Unless arranged with us
BEFORE the due date, late projects will be marked down 10% for every day and not be
accepted beyond one week after the due date.
Option A (Research Paper)
Select a recent (less than 2 year old) research paper from a reputed journal preferable an IEEE
transactions from the area of Power System Protection. Replicate the simulation results, give your
analysis and conclusions on the results and suggest any further improvements to the work already shown
in the paper and simulate it. Impressive ideas can get you bonus points.

Option B (Design Procedure)
Read the problem statements carefully and consult us if you need any clarifications. You will submit a
report summarizing your analysis of the problem and a softcopy of your simulation for each case to be
written on a DVD. Your project report must clearly indicate the group members along with their roll
numbers. The softcopy (on DVD) of the simulation should be organized in folders for each case and a
parent folder indicating the group members’ names. Disorganized submissions will lose some marks as

2. Which relay has to operate? Identify the breakers for primary and secondary protection. Represent the pick-up values for each DTOC. Represent the Real Power flows for the entire system after 1 second in tabular form. Represent the values for phase voltages and line currents for each line in tabular form.2 second. Which relay has to operate? At 0. where applicable. Represent and currents and Real Power flows at 0. L2 experiences a dead short fault on all the three phases. All the relays must wait for 4 cycles before tripping a circuit breaker in order to ignore the transients due to frequent load switching. Submit the voltage waveforms for L4 for 1 complete second. Simulate an overvoltage three phase fault on L4 at is quite troublesome for us to figure out different cases submitted by you.8 seconds in tabular form.3 second. DTOV/DTUV relay on the basis of the results obtained in Part 1. Identify the loads that experience the Black Out situation after three phase fault at L2.4 seconds and at 0. Submission of both report and DVD is required in order to get credit for the project. . for the circuit breakers shown in the diagram. The primary winding of T1 is short circuited at 0. Submit the waveforms for currents entering and leaving Bus 2 and Bus 4 for 1 complete second. Definite Time Over/Under Voltage Relays and Differential Protection Relays. Which relay has to operate first? Identify the breakers for primary and secondary protection. Represent the Real Power flows for the entire system after 1 second in tabular form. the generation.5 second. Identify the breakers for primary and secondary protection. Submit the current waveforms for L3 for 1 complete second. transmission and utilization data is given. Please ensure that your submitted cases run on the simulator in order to get full credit. 3. Simulate a Single Line to Ground fault on L3 at 0. Email submission is not allowed for any student.2 second. For a single line diagram shown below. Grading Criteria 30% content and organization and clarity of the report and case files 50% how well you achieved the desired objective both on paper and in simulation 20% quality of solution and innovation Problem Statement 1. Simulate the entire system on MATLAB/Simulink in steady state. Calculate the Real Power flowing in each line using Simulink Libraries and represent them in tabular form. 4. 5. transformation. Design the protection scheme for the entire system using Definite Time Over Current Relays.
