A properly designed protection system has downstream devices (breakers/fuses/relays) should activating before upstream devices. This minimizes the portion of the system affected by a fault or other disturbance. At the substation level, feeder breakers should trip before the main. Likewise, downstream panel breakers should trip before the substation feeder supplying the panel.
Power System Protection And Coordination of various electrical equipment and apparatus requires a good understanding of phase and ground short circuit currents, detection, and safe clearing of the faulted equipment.
Our Advanced Protective Relay training course provides a practical and comprehensive description of the principles and concepts of analysis, application and operation of protection schemes for various power system elements such as feeders, transformers, motors, buses, generators, etc. The Advanced Protective Relay training course starts with an overview of power system fundamentals, design and short circuit calculations which lead to the understanding of protection scheme requirements and their applications. Protection requirements for industrial plants, cogeneration, and interconnection with the utility power system are explained in detail. This course covers the subject of power system protection from a practical perspective, and includes important functional aspects such as testing and coordination of protection systems. This course is designed for individuals who are involved with industries and utilities which depend on proper system protection for operational efficiency and minimizing damage to equipment.
To provide a practical understanding of protective device applications and protective relay schemes for electrical power systems and equipment. Refresh your knowledge of the basic industrial system protection techniques including fault analysis and overvoltage assessment. Develop your own relay settings and thoroughly understand the philosophy of protective systems. Study actual cases illustrating various techniques in present use and highlighting particular approaches used by experienced system designers.
