MVTP
Buswire Supervision for High Impedance Schemes

The MVTP is a monitoring device, used to ensure the integrity of busbar, and restricted earth fault schemes. The MVTP relay is available in two types: > Type MVTP 11 - single phase relay. > Type MVTP 31 - three phase relay. These provide continuous supervision of the buswires in high impedance type busbar protection schemes, detecting open-circuited buswires as well as open-circuited main current transformers.
Type MVTP

In earth-fault only protection schemes, the single-phase relay is employed. MVTP relays have a setting range of 2-14V, adjusted by means of a plug bridge on the relay front panel. Relays are continuously rated at 600V rms and no external components are required. The ac voltage input is continuously monitored and when it exceeds the level pre-set by means of the plug setting, the output relay is actuated after a three second delay. The hand reset contacts of the output relay are normally connected across the buswires of the busbar protection thus short-circuiting the busbar protection relay and rendering the protection of the zone concerned inoperative. On the same output relay are hand reset contacts for alarm purposes. Operation of the relay is indicated by a hand resettable mechanical flag.

Customer Benefits • Integral buswire shorting facility • Low ac burden • No external resistors required • Ensures the availability of MCAG and MFAC schemes
