This allows for verification of the relay operation under conditions matching actual system faults.Relay Actual Response Steady-State Response ETAP Star exports the relay settings and parameters to ARTTS for current injection into the relay. Based on the required range of the overcurrent and/or fault current. By comparing these sets of curves. relay transient response The waveforms are generated from ETAP and are pragmatically played into the relay through ARTTS. relay steady-state response relay steady-state response Transient Response The ability to simulate relay response under steady-state and transient conditions during both fault and normal system operating conditions provides the necessary tools for protection engineers and technicians to confidently determine and evaluate the design and operation of protection system. The relay test points are then imported to ETAP Star for plotting and comparison with the manufacturer published data. Steady-state fault current provides only a snapshot operation of the relay based on sustained current. Star visually indicates the discrepancies and deviation between the actual (field setting) versus design (intended / ideal) device response characteristics. the relay test set then injects multiple currents (single-phase or three-phase) into the relay in order to reconstruct the relay TCC curve based on the actual relay response. 16 | . Transient fault simulation is necessary to determine the actual response time of the relay based on the distributed through fault containing AC and DC decay current.
