Abstract: This paper presents a new scheme to distinguish the internal fault or the external fault based on phaselet algorithm. For the generator ratio restraint differential protection, the restraint current is decreased owing to CT saturation caused by the external fault, which always results in the maloperation. In order to enhance the operating characteristic of the protection, generator differential

instantaneously [2]. However, this criterion relies on detecting the moments of fault occurring and differential current occurring. If CT saturates very quickly, it is difficult to detect the time difference. In order to avoid differential protection misoperation in case of the external fault, reference [3] proposes a method whose restraining current is produced based on the greater of the two currents. However, it will affect the sensitivity when the internal fault is occurred. This paper proposes a novel scheme for the differential protection. The simulation results show that the scheme can effectively prevent generator differential protection from mal-operation caused by the transient current resulted from CT saturation, and availably enhance the sensitivity of differential protection during internal fault.

protection will select different restraint currents according to the different fault current characteristics. According to that, the method for choosing the corresponding restraint currents is then introduced. The simulation results show that the scheme can effectively prevent the generator differential protection from maloperation caused by CT saturation, and availably enhance the sensitivity of the differential protection during the internal fault.

protection, it is essential to stabilize the protection under these conditions. Two methods are commonly used in the field. One is biasing technique, where the relay setting is raised as the fault current increases. The other is a high impedance technique, where the relay impedance is with big value. Thus the current through the differential element is insufficient for the relay to operate. However, both of the methods mentioned above are not very satisfied in the field [1-3]. Studies have revealed that CT has linear region and saturation region. During linear region, CT will correctly transform the primary current. Therefore, there exists a time difference between the fault occurrence and the emergence of a false differential current even if a serious external fault occurs. However, this time difference never occurs for any internal fault even if subsequent CT saturation emerges. This time difference can be used as a criterion for the differential protection to operate

II. DIFFERENTIAL PROTECTION PRINCIPLE Typical operation criterion of differential protection can be expressed by the following equations:

& Differential current: I d = I1 & I 2 & Restraint current : I res = 0.5 I1 +& I 2

Operation criterion is as the follows:

1 2

I d > I op.0

I d > I op.0 + K res ( I res I res .0 )

digital filter algorithm named as phaselet algorithm. Phaselet algorithm takes samples as partial sum of Fourier algorithm, it does not need integral half-wave data window [4]. Any size of data window samples could be used to calculate the phasor magnitude and phasor phase of raw signal. When using phaselet algorithm, it is supposed the input currents are sampled at N samples per cycle, and every phaselet has q samples, then each cycle has

Where X k stands for the k sample of input signal. Phaselet algorithm is a process of weighted sum. Phaselet calculated by equation (5) and (6) could be transformed to traditional phasor multiplied by a coefficient matrix. External fault currents combined with large non-periodic component and harmonic components make CTs of generator protection to substantial saturation, which causes current of CT second side distortion. Because of the transient response differences of CT at the neutral and the terminal, big differential current will be produced. According to field tests, the fault transient current will not induce CTs to saturation immediately. However CT saturation will occur in 6 150ms after short circuit happened, and the deadline of saturation has relation to non-periodic component[3-6]. Based on this, 1/4 data window phaselet can reflect the fault character by the samples in 1/4 cycle after the fault happened. So 1/4 data window phaselet can effectively remove the influence of CT saturation. During severe external fault or internal fault, both the neutral-side current and the terminal-side current increase rapidly, which make CTs of generator protection to saturation. In order to prevent the misoperation of differential protection caused by CT saturation during external fault, reasonable big restraint current must be chosen. However, in order to enhance the sensitivity of differential protection during internal fault, smaller restraint current must be chosen. An effective way of optimizing performance of differential protection is to

External fault currents always combine together with some DC components, which will induce CT to substantial saturation. Quite often, CT at the neutral and the terminal not only are with different characteristics and burden impedances, but also made by two different manufactures. As a result, the external faults, transform inrush current, or sudden changes in the load could result in CT saturation and misoperation of the differential protection. When the short-circuit fault with small numbers is occurred near the generator neutral, most of the three-phase

& windings are operating well. The terminal-side current I 2 & may have the characters of through current, that is I1 , & I 2 have the same directions. It will decrease the differential

protection operating current I d , and reduce the sensitivity of differential protection, sometime even reflect on the failure operation.

III. PHASELET UTILIZED IN GENERATOR DIFFERENTIAL PROTECTION Since the mid 1990s, GE Company has proposed a novel

choose different reasonable restraint current according to different sort of faults. Phaselet algorithm is a preferable way to judge whether exterior fault or interior fault is occurred. During external fault, in the first 1/4 cycle after the fault happened, the fault transient current has not made CTs saturated. Thus the ratio between 1/4 data window phaselets of the neutral-side current and the terminal-side current is close to 100%. For the internal fault, in the first 1/4 cycle after the fault happened, the ratio between 1/4 data window phaselets of the neutral-side current and the terminal-side current is greatly different.

of CTs is resistance, differential current between the neutral-side current and terminal-side current caused by CT saturation is biggest. Here the relation between angle difference and the transferring ratio can be described as

So three kinds of restraint current are given by the following equations: (i)The restraint current:

Actually in theory, protection criterions of these two restraint current are equivalent, of course the operation characteristic is also same [7]. Choosing different restraint currents may get different operation characteristics. In this paper, three different kinds of restraint currents are compared. In order to discuss the operation characteristic,

The differential protection criterion can be described as:

different restraint currents are:

The differential protection criterion can be described as:

The protection criterion is chosen as: I d > K res I res . The three different operation characteristics during internal fault and external fault are described in subsection 4.1 and 4.2. 4.1 Ability of dealing with CT saturation In case of the external fault, suppose that terminal-side CT is saturated, while the neutral-side CT operates well. The

V. A NOVEL SCHEME OF GENERATOR DIFFERENTIAL PROTECTION According to the above analysis, this paper proposes a

novel scheme of generator differential protection. This scheme is made up of three components, includes start up element, fault character discrimination and differential protection criterion. (i) Start up element In this paper, the fault contributed current is used to judge whether fault is occurred. In order to ensure good sensitivity when slight fault is occurred, the fault contributed differential current is also utilized. (ii) Fault character discrimination After fault is detected, the sampling data of the first 1/4 power system cycle is used to calculate 1/4 data window

an external fault. According to the experiment results, whether it is the internal fault or the external fault, short circuit current will not induce CTs saturation in 1/4 cycle after fault was occurred, so k may be set more sensitive. (iii) Differential protection criterion Full cycle fault data is used to calculate the fundamental

In order to validate performance of the novel scheme for

the internal fault, internal fault simulation program for the generator of Three-Gorges Power Station is developed according to [8]. The main parameters of San Xia generator are given by the following equations: rated power protection K sen =

power factor 0.9, the number of stator slot is 540, pole pairs 40, the number of parallel branch of every phase is 5, the number of series connection coils of every branch is 36. Incomplete differential protection is chosen to analyze the operation performance, and the neutral-side CT receives the current of branch 1 and 2. Operation characteristic of incomplete differential protection is set as fig.3. When short circuit with three turns in branch 1 is occurred, the neutral-side current and the terminal-side current are calculated by internal fault simulation program:

K res2=0.6

5.2 External fault In order to validate the performance of the novel scheme for the external fault, simulations for CT saturation during the external fault are performed with EMTP [2]. In this simulation, the worst condition is taken into consideration in this paper. That is, the neutral-side CT operates well, while the terminal-side CT is exposed to saturation. The current waves of the second side of CTs are depicted in Fig.4, in which i1 is the neutral-side current and i2 is the neutral-side current. The neutral-side current and the terminal-side current are calculated as:

Thus CT saturation may result in misoperation. According to that, it is confirmed that new scheme can ensure better security than traditional differential protection during external fault. VII. CONCLUSIONS A novel scheme of generator differential protection has been presented. According to experiment results, whether it is an internal fault or an external fault, the short circuit current would not make CT of generator protection to substantial saturation in the first 1/4 cycle after the fault was occurred. In this new scheme, 1/4 data window phaselet algorithm is utilized to judge whether an internal fault or an external fault is occurred. According to this, different restraint currents are chosen.
