Traveling Wave

Transient Overvoltages
1.Introduction
• Transient Phenomenon :
– Aperiodic function of time
– Short duration
• Example :Voltage & Current Surge :
(The current surge are made up of charging or discharging capacitive
currents that introduced by the change in voltages across the shunt
capacitances of the transmission system)

– Lightning Surge
– Switching Surge
Impulse Voltage Waveform
2.Traveling Wave
• Disturbance represented by
closing or opening the switch S.
• If Switch S closed, the line
suddenly connected to the
source.
• The whole line is not energized
instantaneously.
• Processed :
– When Switch S closed
– The first capacitor becomes
charged immediately
– Because of the first series
inductor (acts as open circuit),
the second capacitor is delayed
• This gradual buildup of voltage
over the line conductor can be
regarded as a voltage wave is
traveling from one end to the
other end
Voltage & Current Function
• vf=v1(x-t) • Zc=(L/C)½
• vb=v2(x+t) • If=vf/Zc
•  = 1/(LC) • Ib=vb/Zc
• v(x,t)=vf + vb • I(x,t)=If + Ib
• vf=Zcif • I(x,t)=(C/L) ½
• vb=Zcib [v1(x-t) -v2(x+t)]
2.1 Velocity of Surge Propagation

• In the air = 300 000 km/s


•  = 1/(LC) m/s
• Inductance single conductor Overhead Line (assuming
zero ground resistivity) :

• In the cable :  = 1/(LC) = 3 x 108 K m/s


K=dielectric constant (2.5 to 4.0)
2.2 Surge Power Input & Energy Storage

• P=vi Watt
• Ws= ½ Cv2 ; Wm= ½ Li2
• W=Ws+Wm = 2 Ws = 2 Wm = Cv2 = Li2
• P=W  = Li2 /(LC) = i2 Zc = v2 / Zc
2.3 Superposition of Forward and
Backward-Traveling Wave
3. Effects of Line Termination
• Assuming vf, if,vb and ib are the instantaneous
voltage and current.
Hence the instantaneous voltage and current at
the point discontinuity are :
• v(x,t)=vf + vb and I(x,t)=If + Ib
• I=vf/Zc - vb/Zc and iZc=vf – vb
• v + iZc= 2vf so v=2vf=iZc
• vf = ½ (v+iZc) and vb = ½ (v+iZc) or
vb= vf-iZc

• Line is terminated with its characteristic impedance :
– Z=Zc
–  =0, no reflection (infinitely long)
• Z>Zc
– vb is positive
– Ib is negative
– Reflected surges increased voltage and reduced current
• Z<Zc
– vb is negative
– Ib is positive
– Reflected surges reduced voltage and increased current
• Zs and ZR are defined as the sending-end and receiving
end.

Z s  Zc Z R  Zc
3.3 Open-Circuit Line Termination

• Boundary condition for current i=0


• Therefore if=-ib
• Vb=Zcib=Zif=vf
• Thus total voltage at the receiving end
v=vf+vb=2vf
• Voltage at the open end is twice the
forward voltage wave
3.4 Short Circuit Line Termination

• Boundary condition for current v=0


• Therefore vf=-vb
• If=vf/Zc=-(vb/Zc)=ib
• Thus total voltage at the receiving end
v=if+ib=2if
• Current at the open end is twice the
forward current wave
