=100*10^6/ (3*220*0.85*10^3)
=308.743 A
Current on CT Secondary (HV) = Rated Current (HV Side)/CT Ratio
= 308.743 /300
=1.029 A
As the adopted ratio correction is 1.143 A the current to relay bias terminal
= 1.029 * 1.43
=1.176 A
Hence the differential current is = 1.176 1
= 0. 176 A
Bias current = (I1+I2)/2
= (1.176+1)/2
= 1.088 A
[Since the bias current is less than 1.5 A the slope will be within 30%]
Therefore the operating current of the relay will be = Is + (0.3* I bias)

= 0.2 + (0.3 * 1.088)


= 0.526 A
Differential current at worst tap condition should not be more than 90% of operating current for better

=238.54A
Current on CT Secondary (HV) = Rated Current (HV Side)/CT Ratio
= 238.54 /300
=0.795 A
As the adopted ratio correction is 1.143 A the current to relay bias terminal
= 0.795* 1.143
=0.909A
Hence the differential current is = 1 - 0.909
= 0.091 A
Bias current = (I1+I2)/2
= (0.909 +1)/2
= 0.955 A
[Since the bias current is less than 1.5 A the slope will be within 30%]
Therefore the operating current of the relay will be = Is + (0.3* I bias)
= 0.2 + (0.3 * 0.93)
= 0.48 A

Differential current at worst tap condition should not be more than 90% of operating current for better

Rated current (LV Side) = MVA / (3*Rated voltage (LV side))
If CT is Star/Star
Current on CT Secondary (HV) = Rated Current (HV Side) / CT Ratio (HV Side)
If CT is Star/Delta the current shall be multiplied by 3.

Current on the secondary of ICT for Star/Star = Current on CT Secondary (HV Side) / ICT Ratio (HV

For Star/Delta the current shall be multiplied by 3.
The same procedure is followed for getting the relay current on LV side also.
Idiff = Relay Current = Difference between the HV and LV Current (Current at the secondary of ICTs)
To make sure that the relay does not operate when the Transformer taps are changed the currents are
calculated at extreme taps.

= 0.1 + 0.2 + 0.8*0.075
=0. 36A
At tap of -12% with full load the relay require a current of 0.36 A at Is = 0.1
Since I1-I2 = 0.15 which is less than relay operating value, relay will not operate.
So a setting Is = 0.1 is acceptable.

I bias = (I1+I2)/2

Consider the setting of Is = 0.1
The I Operating Current = 0.1 + (0.2 * 0.98)
= 0.1 + 0.196
= 0.296 A

At tap of +5% with full load the relay require a current of 0.29 A at Is = 0.1
Since I1-I2 = 0.04 which is less than relay operating value, relay will not operate.
So a setting Is = 0.1 is acceptable.

As the adopted ratio correction is 1.52 A the current to relay bias terminal

Hence the differential current is = 1.18 1

Compensated current on LV side=3*0.826/1.209

Calculations for OLTC tap setting -10%


Full load Current for 220 kV %( HV Side) Winding at -15% = MVA / (3*0.85*kV)
=315*10^6/ (3*400*0.85*10^3)
=534.89 A
Current on CT Secondary (HV) = Rated Current (HV Side)/CT Ratio
= 534.89 /1000
=0.534 A
Inter posing CT (HV) winding = 3*Current on CT sec (HV)/Ratio correction factor
=3*0.534/2.199
=0.421 A
Hence the differential current is = ABS (0.421 1.183)
= 0. 762 A
Bias current = (I1+I2)/2

= (0.421+1.183)/2
= 0.802 A
[Since the bias current is less than 1.5 A the slope will be within 40%]
Therefore the operating current of the relay will be = Is + (1.5* M1)+M2*Ibias
= 0.1 + (0.4 * 1.5)*0.8*0.697
= 1.25 A
Differential current at worst tap condition should not be more than 90% of operating current for better
stability. Here it s less than 90% so the setting is acceptable.

Current on CT Secondary (HV) = Rated Current (HV Side)/CT Ratio
= 413.33 /1000
=0.413 A
Interposing HV winding current=3*0.413/2.199
=0.325
I bias = (interposing CT HV current side+ Interposed LV side CT current side)/2
= (0.325+1.183)/2
= 0.754 A
Hence the differential current is = 1.183-0.325
= 0.858 A

[Since the bias current is less than 1.5 A the slope will be within 30%]
Therefore the operating current of the relay will be = Is + (m1+m2)* I bias
= 0.1 + (0.4 +0.8) * 0.754
= 1.01 A
The operating value is larger than the differential value hence the system is Stable for the MAX tap

Rated Current (HV Side) = MVA / (3*kV)
=100*10^6/ (3*220*10^3)
=262.43 A

Current on CT Secondary (HV) = Rated Current (HV Side)/CT Ratio


= 262.43/400
=0.66 A
Required Ratio Compensation = 1/ 0.66
=1.52
Rated Current (LV Side) = MVA / (3*kV)
=100*10^6/ (3*132*10^3)
=437.39 A
Current on CT Secondary (LV) = Rated Current (LV Side)/CT Ratio

Full load Current for 220 kV ( HV Side) Winding

= MVA / (3*kV)
=100*10^6/ (3*220*10^3*)
= 262.43 A

Current on CT Secondary (HV) = Rated Current (HV Side)/CT Ratio


= 262.43 /400
= 0.656 A
As the adopted ratio correction is 1.52 A the current to relay bias terminal
= 0.656 * 1.52* 3

= 1.727 A
Compensated current internally on HV = 1.727 A
Rated Current (LV Side) = MVA / (3*kV)
=100*10^6/ (3*132*10^3)
=437.39 A

Current on CT Secondary (LV) = Rated Current (LV Side)/CT Ratio


=437.39/500
= 0.8747 A
Required Ratio Compensation = 1/0.8747
= 1.143 A
Compensated current on LV = 0.8747 * 1.143
=1
Hence the differential current is = (1 1 )
=0A
Bias current = (I1+I2)/2
= (1+1)/2
=1A
[Since the bias current is less than 4 A and greater than 0.656 the slope will be within 30%]
Therefore the operating current of the relay will be = Is + (0.3* ( I bias)
= 0.2 + (0.3*1)
= 0.5A

Calculations for OLTC tap setting -15%


Full load Current for 400 kV %( HV Side) Winding at -15% = MVA / (3*0.85*kV)
=100*10^6/ (3*220*0.85*10^3)
= 308.743 A
Current on CT Secondary (HV) = Rated Current (HV Side)/CT Ratio
= 308.743 /400
= 0.771 A
As the adopted ratio correction is 1.52 A the current to relay bias terminal
= 0.771 * 1.52
= 0.888 A
Compensated current internally on HV =0.888 A
Rated Current (LV Side) = MVA / (3*kV)
=100*10^6/ (3*132*10^3)
=437.39 A
Current on CT Secondary (LV) = Rated Current (LV Side)/CT Ratio
=437.39/500
= 0.8747 A
Required Ratio Compensation = 1/0.8747
= 1.143 A
Compensated current on LV = 0.874* 1.143

= 0.998 A
Hence the differential current is = (1.0-0.888)
= 0.12 A
Bias current = (I1+I2)/2
= (0.888+1)/2
= 0.944 A
[Since the bias current is less than 4 A and greater than 0.656 the slope will be within 30%]
Therefore the operating current of the relay will be = Is + (0.3* ( I bias-0.656)
= 0.2 + (0.3 *0.28)
= 0.284 A
Id= 0.12 is less than I operating current = 0.284 A, hence Stable
Differential current at worst tap condition should not be more than 90% of operating current for better
stability. Here it is less than 90% so the setting is acceptable.

Full load Current for 220 kV %( HV Side) Winding at +10% = MVA / (3*1.1*kV)
=100*10^6/ (3*220*1.1*10^3)
= 238.5 A
Current on CT Secondary (HV) = Rated Current (HV Side)/CT Ratio
= 238.5 /400
= 0.56 A
As the adopted ratio correction is 1 A the current to relay bias terminal
= 0.56 * 1.52
Compensated current internally = 0.8512 A

Compensated current internally on LV = 0.851*1.143


=1A
Hence the differential current is = 1-0.8512
= 0.1488 A
Bias current = (I1+I2)/2
= (1 +0.1488)/2
= 0.574 A
[Since the bias current is less than 0.656 the slope will be zero.
Therefore the operating current of the relay will be = Is + (0.3* ( I bias-0.656)
= 0.2 + (0.3*(0.574))
= 0.2A
Differential current at worst tap condition should not be more than 90% of operating current for better
stability. Here it is less than 90% so the setting is acceptable.
