Long-time protection
The long-time protection function protects cables (phases and neutral)
against overloads. This function is based on true rms measurements.

Thermal memory
The thermal memory continuously accounts for the amount of heat in the cables,
both before and after tripping, whatever the value of the current (presence of
an overload or not). The thermal memory optimises the long-time protection
function of the circuit breaker by taking into account the temperature rise in the
cables. The thermal memory assumes a cable cooling time of approximately
15 minutes.

For the characteristics and external wiring Short-time protection
of the zone selective interlocking function, c the short-time protection function protects the distribution system against
impedant short-circuits
see the technical appendix on c the short-time tripping delay can be used to ensure discrimination with a
"Zone selective interlocking". downstream circuit breaker
c this function carries out true rms measurements.
The portable test kit can be used to test
c the I2t ON and I2t OFF options enhance discrimination with downstream
the wiring between circuit breakers protection devices
for the zone selective interlocking function. c use of I2t curves with short-time protection:
v I2t OFF selected: the protection function implements a constant time curve;
v I2t ON selected: the protection function implements an I2t inverse-time
curve up to 10 Ir. Above 10 Ir, the time curve is constant.

c zone selective interlocking (ZSI)


The short-time and earth-fault protection functions enable time discrimination
by delaying the upstream devices to provide the downstream devices the time
required to clear the fault. Zone selective interlocking can be used to obtain total
discrimination between circuit breakers using external wiring.

Protection of the fourth pole on four-pole circuit breakers


Protection of the neutral conductor depends on the distribution system.
There are three possibilities.

Type of neutral Description.


Neutral unprotected The distribution system does not require protection
of the neutral conductor.
Neutral protection The cross-sectional area of the neutral conductor
at 0.5 In is half that of the phase conductors.
c the long-time current setting Ir for the neutral is equal
to half the setting value
c the short-time pick-up Isd for the neutral is equal
to half the setting value
c the instantaneous pick-up Isd (Micrologic 2.0 A)
for the neutral is equal to half the setting value
c the instantaneous pick-up Ii (Micrologic 5.0 A / 6.0 A /
7.0 A) for the neutral is equal to the setting value.
Neutral protection The cross-sectional area of the neutral conductor is equal
at In to that of the phase conductors.
c the long-time current setting Ir for the neutral is equal
to the setting value
c the short-time pick-up Isd for the neutral is equal to
the setting value
c the instantaneous pick-ups Isd and Ii for the neutral
are equal to the setting value.

Earth-fault protection on Micrologic 6.0 A


c an earth fault in the protection conductors can provoke local temperature rise
at the site of the fault or in the conductors.
The purpose of the earth-fault protection function is to eliminate this type of fault.
c there are two types of earth-fault protection.

Type Description
Residual c the function determines the zero-phase sequence
current, i.e. the vectorial sum of the phase and neutral
currents
c it detects faults downstream of the circuit breaker.
Source Ground Return c using a special external sensor, this function
directly measures the fault current returning
to the transformer via the earth cable
c it detects faults both upstream and downstream
of the circuit breaker
c the maximum distance between the sensor
and the circuit breaker is ten metres.

c earth-fault and neutral protection are independent and can therefore be


combined.

Earth-fault pick-up Ig and tripping delay tg


The pick-up and tripping-delay values can be set independently and are identical
for both the residual and "source ground return" earth-fault protection functions.

Earth-leakage protection on Micrologic 7.0 A


c the earth-leakage protection function primarily protects people against indirect
contact because an earth-leakage current can provoke an increase in the potential
of the exposed conductive parts. The earth-leakage pick-up value I∆n is displayed
directly in amperes and the tripping delay follows a constant-time curve
c an external rectangular sensor is required for this function
c this function is inoperative if the long-time rating plug is not installed
c d protected against nuisance tripping.

Zone selective interlocking (ZSI)
E51397A

Operating principle
c A fault occurs at point A.
Downstream device no. 2 clears the fault and sends a signal to upstream device
no. 1, which maintains the short-time tripping delay tsd or the earth-fault tripping
delay tg to which it is set.
c A fault occurs at point B.
Upstream device no. 1 detects the fault. In the absence of a signal from a
downstream device, the upstream device immediately trips without taking into
1 B account its tripping-delay settings. If it is connected to a device even further
upstream, it sends a signal to that device, which delays tripping according to its tsd
or tg setting.

Note :
On a circuit breaker likely to receive a ZSI signal, the tsd and tg tripping delays must not

Thermal memory

Thermal memory
The thermal memory is a means to simulate temperature rise and cooling caused
by changes in the flow of current in the conductors.

These changes may be caused by:


c repetitive motor starting;
c loads fluctuating near the protection settings;
c repeated circuit-breaker closing on a fault.

Control units without a thermal memory (contrary to bimetal strip thermal


protection) do not react to the above types of overloads because they do not last
long enough to cause tripping. However, each overload produces a temperature
rise and the cumulative effect can lead to dangerous overheating.

Control units with a thermal memory record the temperature rise caused by each
overload. Even very short overloads produce a temperature rise that is stored in
the memory.
This information stored in the thermal memory reduces the tripping time.

Micrologic control units and thermal memory


All Micrologic control units are equipped as standard with a thermal memory
c for all protection functions, prior to tripping, the temperature-rise and cooling time
constants are equal and depend on the tripping delay in question:
v if the tripping delay is short, the time constant is low;
v if the tripping delay is long, the time constant is high.

c for long-time protection, following tripping, the cooling curve is simulated by the
control unit. Closing of the circuit breaker prior to the end of the time constant
(approximately 15 minutes) reduces the tripping time indicated in the tripping
curves.
