Discussions sample in groups:

– In Siprotec 4, the default password is 000000
– Hello friends anyone knows how to recover siemens relay 7sJ801 from monitor mode?
– Just turn off DC supply and turn on
– Just In Monitor Mode, you can see the reset option in the drop-down list, please reset the relay and it will recover to the original. If It happened after the FW update, You have to initialize the device

– plz tell me about PSB protection operated in brief.
– PSB function avoid a huge load of fault. as a matter of fact metering, DZ/DT.since a fault is high speed but a load is a low speed or DZ/DT
– Performance monitoring reporting system In the MICOM Transformer relay manual it is mentioned that 41% of winding (Say 20% setting of In if CT secondary is 1 Amp) will be covered under differential protection and balance 59% will be covered in REF protection for star winding connection transformer. My Query is how much winding will be covered in differential protection if transformer windings are delta connected Dd1.
– Is there any document available to understand how the current flows inside each branch of delta winding during the health conditions, during Phase to Phase fault, and during Phase to Earth faults.
– Please can you help out by briefly explaining, how the problem was resolved?
– if it is Dd Connection then REF can not be applied unless you use a zigzag transformer as a grounding transformer. if so then you will use the same percentage
– Hope License is the problem, please try with a Genuine License Number. but I did put a genuine key when asked during the DIGSI installation
– Hope, License might be utilized before and it might not be multiple user License. Please check with Siemens.


– I’m getting an error while installing DIGSI 4.91 in Windows 8.1 saying the operating system is not supported
– C&S make MRR1 rotor Earth fault relay is not giving any alarm when output is not connected but it’s giving alarm as soon as output wire is connected, What can be the cause
– is it a dry contact?
– Yes
– maybe the internal relay is power by the control voltage itself. does it happen in other relays also?
– No
What type of relay is this? Try to avoid this type of msgs
– Output relay testing procedure is here in this manual

– Anyone experienced in MPD 600 for PD measurement
– Hi, how pilot advance transformer (PAT) works? How its connections will be? These transformers are used in rural agricultural feeders to ensure 3 phase power during non-peak hours and single-phase supply during peak hours. (single-phase supply for rural houses and three-phase for agricultural motors in farms ).

– Please explain the time synch process in Simense relay using SNTP.
– Anti-pump relay
– Anti pumping to protect the closing coil

– Some switches come from the factory but you can also design logic.
– Some power switches.
– please anyone, how to read the ICD file for abb relay?
– Go to parameter settings then click on the file from the menu bar after that select export parameters and select which type of file you want to export
– Siemens 7sj8011, how can we change it?
– Through DIGSI Software
– Use DIGSI. Only by software DIGDI

– What is pre-close and post-close in trip circuit supervision, can anyone explain?
– This is for the trip circuit supervisor relay concept. Pre-close before closing the breaker trip circuit in healthy condition. Post close means after closing the breaker trip circuit healthy condition. This trip circuit supervisor relay check the trip circuit coil must be healthy in pre-close & post-close conditions. If the trip circuit fails protection relay give any trip commend it will not operate. That is why the protection scheme has two number trip circuit schemes. This is called pre-close & post-close.


– Please I looking for ABB RED 615 file setting for comparison.
– How to set Directional overcurrent protection?
– Very nice, also when mechanical protection operates. it will send the trip command directly to lockout without going through the main relay.
– Breaker is not working automatically. we need to press it manually for the operation of the pump.

– Breaker or contactor?
– Contactor
– we need the schematic diagram for the rectification
– Quickly check the float switch by force, if the supply is not reaching up to the contactor coil, then there may be a problem in the loop or float switch itself.

– Download the S1 studio password hash generator
– And set a password
– AAAA
– Please explain the function of resistor connected series in tripping coil
– It’s the trip circuit supervision circuit. It limits the current through the trip coil below the pickup value.
– A diagram is not clear!
– Can we use single pole ac MCB in DC Circuit in negative polarity where positive polarity is grounded, dc system voltage is -48V. If the answer is yes then why?
– Brother MCB has nothing to do with voltage. In your specific circuit, whatever the voltage is, doesn’t affect MCB.
Any kind of circuit breaker works on Current and it will work fine unless your circuit is designed ok. Even then it wouldn’t be a circuit breaker that would be an issue but the design of the circuit.
– But I am asking about dc and ac MCB difference. Whether the can be used interchangeably
-Yes they can, I have used them But it depends on the insensitivity of your circuit as well.
if an MCB is designed for AC, it will trip sooner if used on DC, in case of fault. In normal conditions, it works fine
– What I think is all breakers are rated to work with all types of voltages in ac and dc.
– Only the short circuit capacity will change according to the voltage
– Some are dedicated to DC, their coil doesn’t get heated as fast as AC.
– Yes those are special breakers

– Anybody knows how to protect the three-phase ground earth fault?
For MV network. For single-phase, there are many ways but for a three-phase, we have a problem.

– I want to config distance relay model VAMP 259 but there is no option to enable fault locator. I can see the related option under the distance menu but nothing is submitted (in KM or Ohm), is there any way to enable fault locator?
– Three-phase to the ground will not detect as earth fault because no zero sequence or no current will flow in the neutral. It is just an over-current.

– A 132 kV SF6 circuit breaker rated for 220 volts aux. Voltage is to be used in a substation where 110 volts DC voltage is available. Please advise which changes are necessary to be made to the Circuit breaker.
– If you want to modify the equipment in the circuit breaker for 110v you need to change more equipment. Better try to connect the two 110v supplies in series
– When the available voltage is 110VDC, Change the following parts
1-closing coil one unit
2-tripping coil two units
3-all the dc contact relay.
Otherwise wise Manage 220VDC Indication Lamp

– I am trying to export Micom 442 set file into xrio format by using Schnider s1 studio, but IML cannot find xrio option in the export menu.

– You can go to setting file on the right side of software, and press right-click by mouse, and go to export setting, Rio
– I did it this way, but xrio option was not available. I think the software version does not have this option. But I am not sure.
– Anyone has a good document to understand ABTS and TOP.
– Anyone has a Method of statement For Transformer stability and Generator stability?

– Can you give me transformer testing IEC standards? If the SF6 in HV CBs becomes very low. What is the standard action in this case? does the CB trip or does it must be locked out? If it is locked out does any breaker failure must be initiated?
– Stage 1 alarm, stage 2 block. Block gas pressure <•5 Mpa. Block is no more operation, open or close.
If fault then if it is line Tele protection will activate if trafo feeder or normal feeder BF will operate.
– In 500 KV if stage 2 appears the breaker immediately trips! Is it correct or need discussion?
– In our scheme at 500 kV level, if stage 2 appears the breaker immediately trips, in my opinion, CB lockout must take place rather than the trip! Am I right?
– I have only experience up to 400 kv Siemens CB, second stage not trip from CB scheme. But PSB functions can make trips. I do not know PSD (Phase Synchronizing Device)

– We are getting Generator Rotor Earth Fault in Relay. How can we ensure that it is a false alarm
– this is dangerous to trip the CB in case of stage 2 appears. it may not be able to quench the arc properly as sf6. pressure is low. so it’s advised to block tripping in case stage 2 operates.
– If sf6 gas content is reduced breaker trip
– Level 1 OTTER TAIL
– Stage 2 trip must be a lockout, which means Breaker will trip and shouldn’t Close until SF6 Gas is refilled to the specified pressure.

– Lockout means one needs to reset the Lockout relay before closing Breaker.
But don’t reset until the gas is refilled to the required pressure. Nominal pressure for 132kV is 5.6 bars absolute.

– Does Micom P741 and P742 need separate software for the PSL edition?
– No, s1 studio can do it.
– but if I want to edit a single-line map of the substation?
– In this case, you must use topology editor for Mmicom
– Do you have any applications for that?
– IEC 60076
– If you want to go with diagnostic testing for transformer please refer to C37.152

– anybody has a serial number for the Micom topology editor or can edit SDL for Micom p741?
– In Micom S1 studio, while uploading PSL files to relay, we get three options, the First is Enhanced logic only, the second Logic only, third Full form. My question is what is the difference between these three options?
– The difference is in the settings updated with the PSL update.

– In the below attachment, the Generator Stator earth fault is detected by connecting Neutral side NGT secondary voltage in series with Phase side open delta voltage which is derived through external IVT. The query is how this works and what will be the output voltage of this combination which is measured by the MICOMP345 relay.
– Someone had omicron test templates cmc356, for overcurrents, differential, etc, and also some good bibliography for generator protection.

– Does anybody have a protection relay testing handbook

– I have a problem with the earth’s fault. We have used Siemens o/c relay which is functioning very well for o/c,e/f, and s/c. For the earth fault whenever it’s happened either one or two phases it’s working, but whenever it’s 3phase. the relay is not working.
– Always trips with 3phase faults?
– For another fault it’s ok but the 3 phase Earth fault is not detecting by primary current injections each phase individually functioning.
– What are the magnitudes and angles of the 3 phase currents you injected for the test?
– What SIEMENS OC relay model?
-7SJ601, Version 3
– The earth fault setting for stage one I> 15A. If faults are even 20A no functioning. 3 phase fault is not an earth fault. even if 3 phases to earth will not detect by earth fault protection.
– If you inject three equal magnitudes with 0,120,-120. the earth’s fault will not function even if it is more than the earth’s fault setting. While you are injecting current, check relay measurements and make sure that the neutral current exceeds the setting value (15A). If the current exceeds the setting then you have to check whether the directional function is enabled or not. Also sometimes you need to check the earth fault calculation method if it’s measured or calculated. Finally check the current connection to the relay. Make sure that the current circuit loop is closed
– balance values will not initiate the earth fault function.
– I agree that the balance magnitude will not result in earth fault. Check the neutral current flow
– The 3phase fault is considered a balance three-phase fault so no earth fault will detect, you need active o/c protection. Even if E/F operates with a three-phase fault it will be due to unbalance not a real earth fault.
– Just reduce the setting for testing purposes and inject the current in all three phases monitor the neutral current flow now increase the current value in only one phase until the neutral current value reaches your setting value definitely it will trip according to the curve. Check the setting whether it is nondirectional.
– Hope you are testing the directional earth fault. Check the voltage magnitude which you are injecting into the relay.. it shouldn’t be zero. Most relays require a minimum of 3Volt for sensing the right direction.. suggest give 10V in the Y and B phase and 5V in the R phase and injecting the fault current above the setting.
– if the three currents are not shifted between them by 120 degrees, even if they have the same amplitude, it will trip because the vector sum of the three phases becomes different from zero. (Io # 0A)

– I am facing a problem with Siemens 7SJ8041 When Relay Trips on Under Voltage and Voltage comes back to normal and I try to reset the Relay Binary outputs and Leds then the relay does not reset. I have to go into the Test and diagnostic menu and have to reset the whole relay from there. any solution?
– check the drop-out ratio of the relay. normal drop out is 1.2 for under-voltage.

– Secondly in 7s8041 Relay does not trip on Reverse Power
– check additional functions available or not?
-Yes available and setting at 166.5W. It is available in u/v settings. But you need a Laptop and active additional settings

– If anyone this relay manual English electric, CDG31FF8051JL(M), electromagnetic relay kindly reply me
– If a transformer is protected with both REF (64REF) and Differential (87) as we know REF is more sensitive than 87 and operate for the unprotected winding near the neutral side. My question: is any 87 trip means also a REF trip at the same time?
– No, REF only responds for earth faults inside the zone. if the fault is not related to the earth then the only differential will operate in the case of earth faults, both can trip the transformer( the faster will trip first), and if the transformer has high impedance grounding, the earth fault near the star point ( less than 40% of winding) may not initiate 87 ( when you apply slope and operation and restraint) in this case, only REF will operate. Right?
– Yes, this is right. And this is why we use REF together with Diff protection.

– What is the difference between high impedance and low impedance when dealing with Differential and REF protections?
– The high impedance method uses an impedance in series with the operating coil of the relay. The impedance value is chosen to damp the current of the relay under setting current in the case of the worst fault (a fault near cts with one ct saturated). The low impedance method uses a restraint coil to damp the current of the operating coil in the case of the worst fault. The relay will trip when the operating coil current is maximum than the restraint coil current.
– In which condition the operation of 52PD, pole discordance protection will be blocked?
– the pole discrepancy is an arrangement of controls, typical of the power switch.
– It is already blocked by time. if PD happens it must operate after 2.5 seconds.

– In which cases and configuration I must install and program “inter trip signal protection “in case of transformer protection?

– PD trip function is normally blocked by any pre-scheduled single-pole operation of CB like single pole auto reclosing or manual opening of a single pole of CB.
– in the monopolar switch the discrepancy time must exceed the reclosing time.

– I have a 7sj62 Siemens relay and it’s going to monitor mode then I tried to initialize the Dex file not succeed and activated device reset from the HMI after that it’s gone again monitor mode and relay restarting automatically when power on
– Hopefully by upgrading Firmware Version, it may work fine, kindly contact Siemens and ask for an updated firmware version. you must initialize the device with the digsi.
– Please share experiences and knowledge about “power swing blocking” in distance protection
– Hi guys, I need help setting up an auto recloser on the Sepam series 20 relays. In double bus bar protection, what is the difference between single CT and Double CT methods for bus coupler

How to tackle DC-link over Voltage faults In VFD. Application HVAC chilled pumps. G120

  1. increase the DC overvoltage fault limit to 130%. default is 125%. but this solution may lead to stress VFD which may lead to some future issues.
  2. Update ur firmware to the latest. It will work right away
    – old versions are not prone to motor oscillations which in case u free run a motor may oscillate. in which frequency band u r facing overvoltage?
    – Really I just retrieved data from the customer. But from where I can find it
    – siemens website.
    – No, frequency band
    – run the motor. increase speed slowly. you’ll start hearing sizzling sound in a particular band

– Can anybody tell whats the max current in which we can use MCCB only for load break?
– Cable size 300sq mm
– That’s due to thermal effects. The thermal tripping point would go down after each tripping and if tripping takes place at 370 A after 2 hours, the MCCB might trip at 350 or even below (may) after every one and a half hours or even earlier
– Then what solutions shall we change this MCCB if yes what would be the rating. any other solution instead of MCCB because it’s placed in between transformer secondary side and LT panel.
– Check the tightness of each bolt Properly torque it.
– Phase sequence is ok my site is running fine load is 240 kw. 240 kW? rate amp is 408 amp. This is a connected load but running is 225 kW

– Please I need to communicate with argus 1 relay over current reyrolle by rs 485
– You can not extract. The only vendor that can give you
– You can edit in ziver cid
– Sir I don’t have CID, then how can I edit?
– Arrange to take from the vendor. If you don’t have CID then get it from ziver CID soft. You can Extract the CID via ZiverCid software. It will create the file, And btw you should not be touching ZIV relay if you do not have a basic idea of Ziv software Because there are chances you will make the firmware corrupt For which you have to make it a hard reset, which is also not an easy process, short but risky. So please contact your senior on-site & inform him about the situation. Otherwise once the relay is gone into the dead mode, it won’t be even hard to reset by calendar method
– I have ZiverCID software then how can I extract there is an option?
– I think to go to ziver complus and then setting and then edit. This file will automatically open in ziver CID. If he has CID module installed

– I have a problem with my fault recorder, 7ke85 siemens. The Disgi5 software show fault in port E, the front panel is active run (green), and error (red) Led. I can’t communicate
– This fault locator is not functional As long as the error led is glowing.
– what is the solution?
– This problem has no solution
-Yes in CFC, the ladder is having a signal which is not masked
– Remove that
– I can not inspect the relay, I can not communicate
– Relay is in error mode means the software is having inconsistency between source & destination
– If you have a backup check CFC and send it to the relay. And if you are new to siemens relay, better do as I say, right away
– When I want to communicate with the relay for local or remote but in two situation does not allow any communication the relay
– That’s because of an ERROR in the relay’s file. This relay requires Re-Flashing of firmware

– In RET 670 transformer differential relay. I want to check the diff and bias current I found Please solve my problem related to NR relay.
-When AR has been operated in 400kv line then one end AR successful while other end line became trip while both ends have AR-enabled. then why?
– On other end, it is operating in Pole discrepancy or AR lockout?
-No. Direct trip
-Check all conditions for AR in other ends
– On other end, it is operated in Zone 1 or Zone 2?
– Zone -1
– CB’s health status is ok?
Yes
– It means?
– No PD and AR lockout operated trip command goes to the breaker
– I suppose u assigned any DT to send a signal to the remote end? While AR From the local end
– Check the time setting at both ends Of the AR
– 86 Operated?
– At one end it may be 1sec n other end 350ms
– So by the time at one end AR operated it sent DT signal to other end
– Then you check the logic for 86. 86 should not operate for zone 1 single-phase fault
– Due to which 86 operated. DT received in the remote end?
– Carrier received at other end And carrier send by our end?
– No DT received and send by both end
– Carrier aided tripping sent from your end
– No this is not correct.86 operated for single-phase fault
-Ok. On the remote end, 86 is operated or not?
– Yes. Then check the logic for 86 in the remote end. I think in the remote end 86 is assigned for all faults. Check the time setting at both ends for AR. Both end Fault in Zone 1 then ZCOM Trip will not happen. That is not necessary.

-Hello need some help with this error Relay P643 Alstom make. Communication error
– First, check the Test Connection and then proceed. In the test, the connection selects the correct port to which your serial cable is connected.
– Port is verified but still, the error shows while communicating.
– We had used 2-3 converters but the same error was observed. Then change the port and try once
– Which converter you are using?
– BAFO And another is a local make
– Try with a different port once
– This error comes only when you are sending right?
– Yes
– Select only settings and not psl then send.
– Tried but not working.
– Sir, the port changed but the same error occurred.
– Try to use a different converter other than you have
– We have 2 converters same error for both the converter
– If it has ethernet on the backside of the relay you can use that also
– Which software you are using?
– Agile v1.3.1
– New relay or an old one?
– New relay
– Try with Easergy
– Changed port advance settings. Solved now

– When programming Nondirectional overcurrent test in Omicron getting Out of range error. How do I correct it?
– CT Secondary 5 Amps
– I guess you write the wrong number to CT primary/secondary ratio at device settings. Check again pls.
– Use CMC 356. I think 256+ will not deliver this much.
– Check the max amps settings in test object details.
– use the 3x25A setting. Parallel three current injectors with other 3. This would provide 25A per phase. your requirement is 12.88A that’s why it’s showing out of range.
– Please check the connection setting and select the proper port number and baud rate by looking into the device manager
-Everything is correct only Check test correction once or use another serial cable. Check earthing of the relay as well as your laptop charger.
– Check the communication port configuration from the communication menu usually this error appears due to wrong port selection and configuration
– Yes, you uploaded the wrong menu text file to the IED. To make it normal you need to send the right default menu text file via parallel port again or updating the same firmware will make the IED to go default settings and menu text. If you are planning for a firmware update make sure that IED is not in service.

– Hi everyone can anyone help me with this issue? I am configuring IEC. Here is my settings relay subnet: 255.255.255.0 laptop IP:10.22.91.100. now if I put relay IPs from 10.22.91.1 to 10.22.91.92, I get the response from it. but 10.22.91.93 to 10.22.91.253 aren’t working. what could be the solution? there is no subnetting, why is it restricting me to 92 devices?
– Relay subnet and switch subnet must be the same. What’s the subnet in the switch?
– does a switch has masking? I don’t think so.
– Every switch has IP & Mask If you know the IP address of the switch
– Type in ur browser, and there u can also check the subnet mask
– Which switch u r using?
– that is something diff, that is just to access the switch conf
– the ports aren’t assigned to any VLANs
– so no need for that
– It is linked with relays communication, the relay fiber would be connected to switch if both are not synced, communication with IEC won’t work
– You can check that as a part of troubleshooting
– it’s working with IPs 1-92. That’s what I’m saying, maybe another switch has a different subnet due to which relay won’t be accessible with laptop IP
– Install device model.

– what is the criteria for Grounding control and power cables, should it be grounded from both ends or one end”
And the reason for grounding is both sides or a single side?
-1 core power cable shield must be grounded only from one side, otherwise transformation current with inducted to the shield. I&C& signal cables as well. In this case, the induction is from the outside. However, for 3core, 3phase cable it could be grounded in both sides
– what about multicore control cable?
– In Siemens design which is used for many power plants, it is mentioned that only one Side must be grounded to prevent circulation current.

– display error name is flashed v1.0,
– For parallel operation, you need to synch both transformers first, then close the breaker. Changing load from one transformer to another, Different tap positions mean different voltage levels (if both transformers are fed from the same source & in case of under-voltage, the load will draw more current, which might result in OC Fault, overheating of cables. The breaker may trip in the second case but in the first case, straight damage if you haven’t installed AVR. Breaker doesn’t care for Voltage, it only trips on high currents, But one transformer connected to load which has a voltage of 10.4KV
– it mainly depends on uk% and loads current. having enough data, you can simulate the Network using DigSILENT. In my experience, you can parallel both transformers without worrying.
– Check impedance voltage percentage Within limit, u can
– Check impedance voltage percentage at nameplate data
-When u have two transformers in parallel then you may have to look at the circulating currents that might flow when tap positions are not matching. Account for that circulation current as it will be an issue
– Sir the same I read in a document due to low impedance in the transformer which has less tap position certain amount of current will circulate within the winding but why?
– difference in impedance of the transformer more than 10% will have a circulating current too. even if taps are the same and the voltages are the same
– 66kv breaker CG make
-There is no need for SC capacity coordination, your new breaker may be oversize but that’s not a problem
– 40kA/3sec means it can withstand up to 40kA which is higher than 31.5kA. if 31.5kA for your substation is ok, then 40kA is ok, too.
– Not a problem higher capacity only.

– Please provide earthing in HT cable termination at both ends, must in HT earthing is very important
– In transformer slope testing what is I bias calculation that needs to be set in the omicron test?
– What is the IBias calculation equation to feed in the omicron differential characteristics for generator protection
– When we send the configuration to the relay we will face a syntax error at the last step, what is the matter?
– Depends on what relay u are testing.
– In the shot test, you choose the points on the characteristic curve, and the software tests only at those points. In the search test, u select the sweep for IBias e.g. 0.2 to 5 with some intervals. This will create vertical lines on the characteristic curve and the test set will then determine the Idiff value on each of those lines. The test set will determine the Idiff value at which the relay operates. Search is like making the test set determine whats the characteristic curve and if the searched point is within the tolerance limit then only the test is considered passed

– I have a p443 distance relay(Micom Schnieder make), I tested this relay in zone 1, but it also trips in zone 2 and zone 3 simultaneously..and although I marshaled output contacts to trip.. it does not send tripping order to test set..anybody solves this issue
– Which test set are u using? Have u checked the current or voltage connections? Normally this happens when u are injecting current or voltage in reverse, which means the relay is looking in reverse. Check whether the reverse zone is enabled or not.
– omicron 356
– U using a distance module? Check your trip contact type, And double-check the PSL file.
– I test this relay manually through the test set, not through the laptop. I am using the time module.
-Ok. First, confirm ur output relays are properly working and connections are ok or not. Force them from the Commissioning menu and check continuity using a multimeter. Check ur wiring. U using a dry connection or wet contact.?
– Maybe the relay SOTF function is on
– Good point. Ensure there is a pre-fault. time set on the test set. Normally it is 1 sec.
– There are 2 issues. One is ur relay tripping on all zones. And second ur binary output feedback not reaching the test set. Solve them one by one.
– Usually, zone 1 is inside zone 2 and zone 3 (if all your zones are forward direction).

– We have one 13.8KV (15KV sys voltage) Switchgear. Due to an increase in the connected load, we want to change the CT in one of its Cubicles. The new CT suggested by the Supplier having the following Specs: *CT 300/5, Burden 15VA, 5P10, BIL 10KV. now my question is the 5P10 & the burden suggested by them is correct for this MV Switchgear? I’ve seen some CT having 5P20. Where we will select 5P10 & 5P20? Also, do we need to replace the metering core, as well as a load, that is increased?
– all CT replacements should have a CT CALCULATION ( sizing) according to circuit parameters. You should ask for this document first
– To say if it matches or not you need to know the maximum short circuit current, and also you need to know your relay and cables burden because 5P10 means this CT will be stable and will not saturate in the range up to 10 times the nominal current and with 15 VA burden. If you calculate your actual burden then 5P10 might be equivalent to 5P20.


– if we have 1K ohm shunt resistors of 180W for high impedance cable diff port. But need to change the resistors to 500 ohms as per settings, so how we can calculate watts for 500 ohms resist I think the definition of the armature is not exact and correct
– I was just skimming over the pdf and noticed that. The armature is where voltage is induced in it

– Do we have any stationary armature in the power plant machine? I haven’t seen
– Alternator I guess?
– In synchronous generators Armature is stationary and the dc voltage is applied to the winding on the rotor to have a rotating magnetic field
– It is easier to have a stationary three-phase output than having a rotating one
– Probably it is a technical dictionary For practical uses But from an academic point of view, things are different And brushless synchronous generators have a rotating armature. The rotating armature is mounted on the rotor to excite the generator’s field circuit
– I don’t say that we don’t have a rotating armature. I’m saying that the armature and the rotor are 2 different subjects
– I think basically there are only two terms of stator and rotor. depending on various conditions and requirements we use either stator as armature or field or vice versa.
– Maybe in a special type of machine the armature is mounted on the stator And a field circuit is on the rotor.
– And for the other type The reverse may be true
– yes. if there is a time-varying magnetic field and a stationary coil. the voltage will be induced in the stationary coil irrespective of stator or rotor or field or armature terminologies may differ as per circumstances.
– I think it’s not a network fault like a short circuit. It’s about the relay hardware itself As the title suggests Hw error

– How error relay has a hardware problem?
– I can’t open the diagram. It’s a network topology for DMMs and Relays single ring with redundancy characteristics for the 61850 networks, but the question is the connection between HSR &RSTP is correct or not? And can I use PT-G503 or other switches required?
– I think u can’t use different protocols in a single ring. But if u have a separate ring connected separately with the switch, there won’t be an issue. RSTP and HSR can both will work fine about the switch PT503, if it’s an industrial switch, it will work fine.

– Can anyone share the Easergy studio software password?
– AAAA
– Can anybody help me? This switch has been faulty and I don’t know why.
– If you’re having a dual DC source then check the healthiness of both DC supplies. In some cases, If one DC source fails then the switch will give that indication
– you should connect to the switch and read the logs. there may be an alarm for acknowledging for example a link was down, a link was disconnected, etc.

– I doubt if we install fuse and MCB in the same rating, then if overload comes what operates first either fuse blown first or mcb operate first if it is so why? Reason. The same for short circuit condition
– Fuse
– Response time is faster than McBride
-Could you please share with me the response time for MCB and fuse?
– The answer depends on the thermal capability curve of each
– How we can clarify? Any documents for this

– When Three generators are running in parallel, suddenly one generator got trip. What happens to other generators? I know that the speed of other generators will increase but I don’t know why?
– According to the drop curve In other words they all agreed to provide the grid with a 50/60 Hz sinusoidal voltage waveform. You can only see the actual increase in speed when you disconnect the generator from the grid. This question is quite complex, the generators are running on the grid or isolated from the Power system? If are connected you need to know how big is the influence of these generators in the system. In other words, you will need a load flow simulation and a transitory simulation engine to know what will happen with the other machines because synchronous generators have angular stability that depends on the intrinsic constructive characteristics. If the system is isolated is most likely that the tripped machine will accelerate and the other machines will decrease speed, if the variant of power is the inside capability and angle stability the speed regulator and the voltage regulator will set a new operation point to guarantee the operation delivering the same amount of power (sorry for bad English, just woke up)
– Actually, this is on a machine connected to an “infinite power” bus. If we are talking about a big loss of generation the machines will swing around the main frequency raising/decreasing speed, right?
– If the frequency of the other two generators was raised means the speed has to increase right?
– Because for speed=120f/p In synchronous machines speed -> frequency. But again, it’s most likely that the speed of the two remaining generators will decrease. Once you have the same amount of load and have to decrease your generation the electrical current on the remaining generators are higher, this will result in a bigger magnetic flux that will make a force in the opposite direction of the primary machine (turbine), in other words, this should break the generator. But as our colleague said, in a big power system you shouldn’t have speed variations. It will all depend on your system. Is impossible to give a precise answer without the information?
– The speed will decrease most likely depends upon the governor’s response if they running in an isolated system. A change in active power demand or production causes a fluctuation of the speed (frequency).
If a generator trips, the frequency will decline. If the loss of generation is greater than the spinning reserve, the frequency could eventually stabilize at a new value lower than the desired one. However, in practice, under-frequency relaying is used to reestablish the balance between power demand and available production. If the frequency decline is excessive, generating units can be automatically tripped off causing an additional decline of frequency, and possible collapse of the system. Acceleration torque (Ta) = T (mech) – T (elec). For small variations 😛 (mech) ≈ T (mech) P (elec) ≈ T (elec)

– Remove secondary connections either connected 1a or 1n. Apply test voltage case1: primary to 1a
Case 2: primary to 1n. The values more or less should come the same. Sometimes it will show some difference due to testing machine (Megger) measurement and also ambient temperature(T)
– IN the 7SR relay where to find the Characteristic angle?
– Using reydisp evolution
– take pri. to earth at 5kv and seco. to earth at 500 v
– Anybody tested the GIPAM 10NZ relay? Where is direction selection for 67G SGR Protection In software?
– Check-in current protection folder
– +-45 by default

– any ziv zlv distance protection engineer urgent need, Unbalance settings are given 30%
– How to test and justify this 30%
– How to Test 100% Stator Earth fault protection?
– With 3rd Harmonic. It is the power setting. When u give the fault with power above 30%. Then only the relay will be active.
– Which relay Model?
– 7UM622
– Control cable length is 700mtr, then how to calculate voltage drop.

– this is an error inside
– Not communicating with software
– must repair
– What is the fault code relay is showing?
– Not showing any fault Or warning code, the Only ready LED is Blinking


– Now communicated with relay, But the Blinking problem is not fixed
– Go to main menu/monitoring/IED status/self-supervision, Check for the faulty hardware module. If it is a diagnostic failure then also it flashes
– Check IRF alarm contact status to find the reason, It is an internal fault maybe.
– Why is current in the R phase so much high on normal voltage
– Load on the R phase might be more as compared to other phases.
– Normal voltage is injected, And the normal current is injected.
– whats the ct ratio?
– 400/1
– check backup relay measurement
– how many the core in ct?
– But I am injecting to relay directly
– how secondary set Check ct wiring?
– Star point of relay Input Is correctly wired
– star point is only for protection
– R u injected or the line is the charge?
– Relay is separated from PT CT, I am injecting current from omicron.
– PT as well
– R u injecting balance current?
– 1 A
– Yes
– check ct ratio in the relay.
– CT ratio is OK in the relay when u injecting is there any current in IN?
– Yes same as the R phase.
– Check-in this, it was fluctuating
– inject only r phase backside of the relay terminal not on tb
– It’s 934 A is showing when I inject only in R phase
– led is blinking for this relay (REL670)


– Is circuit breaker contact resistance temperature-dependent
-Yes the hotter it has the higher the value. That’s why you would have seen that the current is injected for a very short duration. As not to elevate the temperature
– Does variations in input voltage affect breaker timing?
– Input supply varies from 110V to 170V. The ideal voltage is 110 V

-: 132 kV breaker close time =77 ms
– At160V
– PT ki 110 v vary kr rhi h
– No pt
– Direct supply from AC source for testing
– ac supply for the kit, No for breaker control supply
– Usually, the higher volts may not affect the timing but will damage the insulation of the coil
– Is this value is acceptable
– ac supply use in break only for motor. Refer to the manual.
– Input ac supply for the kit is 260V For MV, I have less than 60ms for one while 40 ms for the other type. The source is giving 260 V
– So you have to compare with the values in manual
-Trip time is 46 ms, CO=39ms
– please check these angle diff. is correct or wrong?

– Can you tell me what is the name of this marked portion? And why it is connected there?
– It’s correct, inductive.
– When I charge the 132kv line, then I get the all secondary 3phase voltage at the panel TB from line CVT. But I trip the breaker, now the line remains back charge bcz of opposite end connected. In this case, I get only R, B phase voltage from the same line CVT. Y ph voltage is near to zero(i.e, y=7 v) How it is possible?
– line pt install
– May Y phase jumper opened in transmission line?
– please check from the remote end voltage
– It also perfectly correct. remote end all three voltage is perfect?
– tell me all three voltage
24abb , 18:32 -abb pcm600: R=63.8
Y=63.03
B=63.35
– Now it is charged at both ends. When I cut our end breaker, then I get only 2 ph voltage
– r u seeing in the panel?

– No seeing at pt MB
– cut the break from remote end charge from our end then check
– same problem
– I get all 3 ph voltage
– It is clear
– CVT after breaker or before when charging from both ends then what about the load
– all three loads are balance
– Does the problem solved now? Check the wiring of pt at tb
– Is it loose
– It is perfectly connected
– What about pt secondary phase to phase voltage?
– 110 if it is charged at both ends
– What about all other phases?
– All three-phase to phase voltage is 110 if the line is charged at both ends.
– If I cut my end breaker then I get 2 phase voltage only
– I am not getting Yph voltage

– Does the LA inline side shows leakage current?
– If our side is charged and the other side breaker is off in this case I get all three-phase voltage
– Yes check for leakage current in LA.


– Does DNP communicate over RS 485?
– Yes, if supported by the relay manufacturer.

– Correct, RS485 RS232 RS422etc is just a standard for serial communication
– DNP is a protocol that can be communicated over RS232 or RS485 serial port. DNP can definitely be daisy-chained, just use a terminating resistor
– The motor got tripped on 51n but all three-phase currents are equal, the protection on the calculated value of three-phase currents internally by the relay. the relay was 7sj66. What are the causes?
– IR value of the motor is good

– Anyone can explain the difference between DNP and Rs 485
– RS 485 is port, DNP is protocol, DNP is a protocol
– Used in the process automation system
– Anyone can explain how to collect ABT meter load survey data through RS 485 port?
– Ok thanks, so the DNP3 outstation address will act like node ID?

– How many relays can we drop on an RS485 using DNP3?
– I mean DNP3 slave address ranges up to 65535
– The maximum IEDs that were successfully daisy-chained was 255, however, I won’t use anything close to that.
– Read through the RS485 standard, all is specified, this is not my area is expertise, but I’ve seen them work over 200m, use a 9600bd 2 wire comms, With 2 pair, 0.5 twisted shielded pair, proper earthing of spare wires and shield, I used till1400 meter closed loop
– anyone uses kocos Artes 440 three-phase secondary innection set.

– Please share a detailed explanation of under excitation Protection
– Please tell me about the LBB scheme in 220kV
– Local Breaker protection scheme basically depends on the type of busbar scheme you applied for.
– What is the type of bus bar scheme used in your 220kV station
– It is a trip matrix for designing protection schemes
– For which type of unit? Is it for generator
– Class A is for Turbine trip class B is for the GCB trip
– Whenever Turbine tripping occurs, GCB trips consequently.
– No correlation with a generator in this case. It is for a transformer. The above transformer is a GT.
-Though it is a GT, protection group A and Group B is for transformer breaker itself. Hv side and LV side (GCB), 86.1 & 86.2
– GT doesn’t have HV side CB. 86 means Master tripping. I’m saying for transformer
– Here in the trip matrix, Group A & B are categorized for master trips only.
– You mean, GT doesn’t have hv side CB
– Sorry LV side doesn’t have CB I meant to say. if it is 11/33kV GT. CB will be at the 33kV side in small power plants.
– It is a transformer
– I want a wrt generator For the 7UM relay.
– Low impedance busbar having main and check zone For busbar trip. how this is working?
– I understood the scheme is a double busbar with a transfer bus scheme.
– The main and check zone concept is different from LBB. We use a zone system in busbar differential. Whereas, LBB operates when the corresponding breaker fails to trip under feeder fault/bay fault condition. LBB will extend to the trip concerned busbar of that breaker(two main and transfer scheme) and other ends of the line (i.e., opposite end station).
– You will be more clear with protection schemes, showing LBB operated page.


– float dc ammeter shows which current In the battery charger?
– From DIGSI 5 can we communicate Siprotec 4 relay?
– No, But you can install them on single pc

– anyone has drawn for this 11 kv panel siemens?
– I am having two MFM in different panels both having the same voltage and current but KWH is different. Is this possible?
– Check CTR in both
-Checked it is correct, Current may be the same now but it might be different in different timings, so results in different KWh ratings.
– Load in two feeders could not need to be the same all the time. Eventually, results in different kwh ratings.
– One is incomer and one is outgoer. Only- one feeder connected in that bus?
– No. Then how both currents ratings were same
– it is a plant of 30mw where incomer is trf and connected to og line
– That incomer is getting input from 6 5MW sources
– How much is the difference in values in both meters183 and 258
– Is meter calibration done?
-Check PT also
R-Y 115, Y-B 121 B-R 120
– Angles in 7SR relay.
– TCS Protection is not there in the 7SR17 Relay
-How to make logic for TCS in 7SR17 Relay?
– this will work only in the case of DC coil in VCB
– OK, but how to make an equation for that?
– My existing relay is Rho 3
– In the 7SR relay how to make the equation Like logic? How to make TCS Logic in-display evolution software. How many trip coils are in your breaker?
– Two
– Use two equations
– Assign binary input to 74TCS-1 to 4 in the input matrix. Then assign the same in output matrix by virtual input
– Use E1=V1V2, E2=V3V4
– 74TCS is not available in relay
– Which relay?
– 7SR17
– Is it possible to Use TCS if we don’t have 74TCS?

– Only phase to neutral. Rph only
– In the Y phase also 31V showing Not injecting in the y phase. If injecting in the R phase, it should not show in the Y and b phase, but it will show in VRY AND VBR.
– Is there a neutral problem?
– Try to ground the other two phases and check
– Check with three-phase injection also

– Does anyone have a SIPROTEC 5 .sim file to share?
– Single-phase pick up and three-phase pickup will be different for overcurrent Protection in relay Or not?
– In relay 7SJ64
– Idmt time at normal setting and 2 times current injection are coming same is this possible
– At a normal setting, the relay will pick up only.
– Check the output trip logic

– Can anyone clarify me LBB scheme 220kV
– Can earthing of CT 2ndry neutral on both sides (at panel side and at field side) can cause this differential current?
– Does anyone has experienced this case?

– That a transformer differential relay tripped even when the breaker is opened? Some differential current flowing when the breaker is opened
– In this case, the current doesn’t flow in the relay coil. it will circulate if both field side and panel side star point earthed
– Check DR
– if transformer trip on diff. relay on through fault what’s the reason?
– Check differential settings and harmonic blocking during energization.
– can we disable the external fault trip in Micom p642 diff?

– after running the generator for 3hrs the turbine guide bearing temperature would rose from 50-62, and if the machine is not shut down it will continue to alarm and trip point.
– Our plant has 6 generators of 96.4mw each, suddenly one of them developed high-temperature issue from the turbine guide bearing. It is a hydropower plant
– Increase the bearing temperature limit up to 85-degree Setpoint
– Won’t that cause bearing burnout as all other generators don’t get up 58 degrees?
– What about the oil temperature in that system?
– If the oil temp is high, too the bearing temp will be high. So you need to inspect cooling systems for turbine oil. The oil temperature also do rise but as usual, it should be lagging and that is what we are getting
– If you are using water in a cooling system, just inspect the water entry. Especially valves which allow cooling water to circulate.
– It’s self-cooling, when the shaft rotates it stir up oil in between the gap between it and the bearing providing lubrication and cooling at the same time
– forbearing to be at low temperature, the oil in its gap must be at a low temperature too. But the oil is cooled by either air or cold water system. So I am advising you to inspect the cold water system or air system. Because this shows that the system that cools oil is not working properly.
– Ok sir, our system is an enclosed type, no water cooling system, and we checked all the breeder points but no issues.
– Ok continue to troubleshoot bro.

– Can anyone tell me how to test low impedance ref Secondary injections or stability?
– Secondary injection
– I am facing a problem with distance signals Configure in the extended system interface
– You will get the signals which you require

– Need to apply 1500V DC voltage for testing. Have anyone came through the 1500V DC voltage injector kit?
– In the 220kV scheme with two main and one transfer bus does the logic inputs of TBC and Bus coupler are fed to that bay relay or not Or using Goose it is done can anyone tell me
– If I am understanding correctly, I would say yes you would get those signals wired to your bay relay as inputs then if needed send it via GOOSE to any other relay that needs it for its logic. Only during maintenance, you shift to transfer bus through 89T…so bus bar protection should not Operate for transfer bus For bay units, only bus isolators status (89A&89B) should be given. It should operate for Bus-A and Bus-B fault.

– For directional earth fault relay uses positive sector negative or zero?
– Generally, we negative and zero sequences not positive sequence

– Relay is showing negative power instead of positive, In this case, the current is lagging voltage, How, it is leading As PF is negative

– In capacitive load current leads voltage, In inductive load, current lags voltage, Current Our is an inductive load
– I guess real power is flowing in the reverse direction. You have to reverse the CT staring, change the PQ direction in Siemens bcu

– if you have calculations for differential relay for transformer 132/33, 132/33/11 Kv, can provide us with my regard

protection relay 2 Discussion

– During one phase PT failure, will overflux relay work? Has anyone seen this kind of voltage transformer connection?
– Why b phase winding is grounded on the secondary side?
– Can u share nameplate details of the PT
– yes, in an oil company, usually they only use 2 PT inputs and make it as delta connection in the relay
– That’s an open delta voltage transformer or potential transformer.
– It’s mainly used as an input to detect earth faults using neutral voltage displacement.
– Typically the sum of the voltage across D7 and D9 is zero. however should there be an earth fault and one of the phases hit the ground … you will get voltage across the open point
– Such schemes are used in ungrounded systems or on generator – transformer sets. there is no path for earth fault
– Sorry open wye but the scheme is the same.
– Open delta connection, Yellow phase normally will ground. But as per the drawing seen some conflict.
Normally 2 VT Winding we can see.

– This is a star connection with y phase grounded Not an open delta. I was reading on the internet it’s some old practice followed in the UK.

– Anyone has any experience with diesel Genset paralleling on the common neutral resistor? How many generators can work connected to the resistor and how many can work isolated in parallel mode? That’s a very big open question.
– Yes, it is really problematic to solve its protection system
– Yes we typically run the neutrals to a common neutral bar. Install at least 3 the neutral earthing resistors and contactors
– Are you talking about medium voltage generators?
– Yeah.
– How did you calculate the size of resistors
– Please, can you share some calculations?
– I need a setting guide for directional protection
– If any example for Double feed SubStation with the tiebreaker normally closed
– What is the Apts scheme?

– For this system, with the two Transformers secondary breakers and the tiebreaker are normally closed, and installing directional on the two secondaries, I need some guidance on how to make the setting for the directional, And if anyone has a similar case I will be glad if he shares his settings and how to Make them?
– the intention of the Directional on the secondary side is for backup protection? I ever encounter an application that uses the secondary side 67 as a backup by looking up into the transformer and if it operates it will trip both HV and LV. – Can anybody share about the zig-zag transformer? Principle operation of it.

– Anyone has SR 469, SR 650, and SR 750 test formats? Which is the software used for these relays? Anyone pls help.

– what could be the cause of the SF alarm?
– PLC is communicating with another PLC over Profibus
– Well, it can be a lot of stuff, but the first thing I always have for this alarm. SISTEM FAULT means that you may have some unit programmed inside your PLC that is not connected in the field.
– So if it still works let it be
– with that alarm all parameters of slave address become red
– This is not something to concern, just be sure you have a good backup of the PLC program. but if it remains, it will not let startup of Engine
– Yes, but if it is already working, maybe is only a module programmed in the PLC but not connected in the field, but I say, I saw processes going on for Years with this SF, and nothing ever happened.

– we have a problem in the Genetaror Micom P343 that does not boot, please help us how to fix it, thanks
– Check the ribbon resistance of HMI to relay. We have faced the same and ask Alstom then after they checked and replace the ribbon, and fix the issue.
– Where is the ribbon?
– Open the front side of the relay then there is a connecting ribbon cable u can find
– This, not Bad contact Ribbon the message is clear (Micom Booting) with Led Alarm lightning in red Fast…
It’s like PC booting, I think it’s a microprocessor issue
– We have faced the same problem in our reliance industries Jamnagar plant and Alstom itself give us a solution and change all the ribbons. Micom rebooting issue may be from the HMI problem/relay power card problem but if it comes even after replacing HMI look forward with manufacturers. It’s not just like pc booting issues. There is no chance of error in relay or bugs like a microprocessor.
– I might be wrong but I share what I experienced with the same problem.
– Any vacancy for Facilities Manager
– How do I determine distance characteristics in the L90 GE relay? do someone has a commissioning manual for L90 relays?

– I want to know what you guys as an Electrical Department are doing to fight COVID 19 in their workplace.

– Does it show any distance in zone 1?
– Grid staff is not too efficient to check the fault recorder. I will go to check it tomorrow and will discuss it again
– What is the status now does the line charged from both ends?
– Only from another end at no load
– Sir but usually these transients will be blocked by numerical relays rights
– I think it may be DC grounding
– Check the fault recorded to see the fault current and voltage
– Lighting
– Depending on the magnitude and relay Makes. We have had similar invent without any trace to a physical cause
-can you share with us the Comtrade file

– What is the standard setting of the characteristic angle for directional overcurrent phase and ground (67/67N)?
– does somebody has this relay technical manual ABB PCD for recloser?

– Hi anyone has a static VAR compensator (SVC) protection scheme that can share?
– What is the standard setting of the characteristic angle for directional overcurrent phase and ground (67/67N)?
– For typical distribution networks (up to 33 kV), I set it to 30 degrees. For sub-transmission/transmission, I set it to 45 degrees, between the current phase and voltage polarizing quantity.
– However different scenarios may require different angles and have to be worked out.
– This angle for directional phase overcurrent? What about the angle for directional ground overcurrent 67N?
– Are there any references for how to Make the setting for directional phase and ground overcurrent 67/67N?
– I would typically read the relay manual, And use the default recommended value. The actual math behind setting them can be very tricky.
– Which relay are you using?
– Sepam s40
– The application is two parallel Transformers
– What’s the voltage level and how far is the relay from the supply transformer?
– From experience, RCA is 20~40
– For 67N, the value is dependent on the type of grounding. Please refer to NPAG, it was clearly explained there
– Anyone has a digsi4 Activation Key? And for 67, if I am not mistaken, RCA is set based on the impedance angle of the system

– I have to change CT/VT ratio in an Elster A1800 energy meter. Already got established communication with the meter via Metercat 3.5 software. I believe CT/VT ratios can be changed via function “Program” but I am not able to proceed as everything at the “Program” popup window is grey (not editable), I request you to support me in changing the CT/VT ratios.
– You have to enable changing xt ratio on parameters function

– There is no Parameter menu in Functions? please clarify in detail or send some snapshot
– Hi Guys, I have a question for the 220KV level, which is suitable for either CVT or IVT(PT)? And why Usually we are adopting IVT(PT) in Andhra Pradesh India
– CVT always
– Sir can you please support your statement As we have observed the drift in secondary voltages are more in CVT compared to IVT over a time span
– Mainly installation reasons. they are lighter, cheaper, Safer (transfer of emf when a fault occurs)as there is no direct connection to the primary voltage source.
– Can you explain how does the voltage drift?
– Deterioration in the capacitance levels over a period of operations results in variations in secondary voltages Can’t that be fixed during maintenance? (Note: I don’t have any experience in maintenance and operation Even I don’t have any experience in Maintenance. But I am not sure we can improve this ineffective manner)
– CVT for transmission circuits or High Voltage i.e greater than 66kV and IVT for distribution circuits 33kV and below
– Moreover, we are mostly using IVT in 220KV levels also so, I am not aware of fixing methods. I believe it’s a cost trade-off. In India IVTs in 220kV class are more affordable than CVT. And yet you may see them actively used in 220kV stations where the transmission system is at 220kV level. This is because the same CVT would be used as a coupling capacitor for PLCC communications as well.
– That’s my understanding
– Why when we calculate short circuits at transformer secondary we should consider no-load ph to phase voltage not rated voltage?!
– Yes.CVT is more affordable to be used since the consideration of its(equipments) isolation to H.V.
– Yes, we can track and analyze its dissipation factor( Tan Delta measurement)
– Which position?
– This is an AVR relay from ZIV bringing.
-anyone has the pin configuration of this relay?
– If you mean bias setting, then I would say it has to be calculated based on the transformer parameters

– Any idea why the 51N protection of the REF615A relay operates in an almost constant time of 0.06 seconds
– reviewing the operation curve the minimum operation time is 0.02 seconds at least the first 3 tests would have given me the correct value
– check the other seating. Check the type of curve selected in the relay, Whether it is definitely time or IDMT

– Anyone has a VALANCE book on “How to Test Breaker Failure Element Logic”?

– I have a problem with Micom P443 for Distance Protection. I have a problem with System Checks for Autoreclose, anyone can tell me what is the difference between CS1 Close Enable dan C/S AR Immediate?
– Cs1 close enable is the setting of sync check on which you want to recloser the circuit breaker like on Live Line Live Bus or Live bus Dead Line or Dead Bus.
– If you enable c/s AR immediate then it means that if during the dead time system check conditions are met then it will reclose the breaker without waiting for the remaining dead time period,
– Like for example if dead time is 1 sec
– And system check conditions are met during 0.6 seconds of dead time, then the relay will give reclose command without waiting for the remaining 0.4seconds of dead time. But you have disables the system check conditions on shot1 which means it will reclose the breaker without looking into any system check conditions,
– Sys check on shot 1 should be enabled too.

– Hi Guys I have a question: what is the problem with a 3phases motor run by A frequency driver, if I want to run it very slowly for instance at 4HZ normally it runs at a modulated Frequency variable between 50Hz and 0 but what happens to a very low frequency?
– I know that it will run slow, but it will warm up a lot right? but more than that what will it happen? somebody, some documentation to explain this phenomenon?
– It depends on the loading. The higher it’s loading, the more power is needed to turn the output torque. If you don’t have a load, just make sure your lower frequency setting has a minimal current to move the rotor otherwise, it will overheat.
– I even reinstalled my windows not going, I checked internet settings also

– The SEL Technical Support Line is available at +1.509.338.3838

– does anybody here has the SUE3000 configuration tool
– Some examples of End Fault Protection with SEL 487B?

– Anybody can please share with ME Schneider Software SFT SAV?
– what does this number means by 6000 of this RCD?
– It can open currents up to 6000A. 6kA
– Note it’s RCBO not RCD
– What s the difference? Because some tell me it is the max number of trips. RCBO stands for residual current circuit breaker. It can open faults up to 6000A. It can be used for short circuit protection as well as sensitive faults of 30ma. RCD is a residual current device. It’s used only to pick up sensitive 30ma faults. They can’t open full short circuit currents. -Think of RCBO as RCD+MCB
– No it’s the rated fault level.

– We have the following problem with ER make DUOBIAS relay for Transformer differential protection
– Can anyone guide what to be done with this?
– Hi anyone has testing commissioning motor differential protection relay procedure please Sharing
– Short circuit level for this device
– This kind of error shows in sverker 900 Megger relay test kit anyone has an idea what is this?


– Maybe you could try to restart the device. And try to jumper each phase RST to neutral phase.
– Jumper are arranged like this is it ok?
– I have restarted the kit but it not working
– Jumper I1to neutral, then I2 to neutral, and so on. Simultaneously inject small current to monitor the device voltage ports are also not working
– How about the current ports?
-They are also not working
– Make sure when you start the device the knob selector is in an off position.
– Check the fuses too

– Does anyone know if you can force or simulate voltage on an ABB relay? That is, without using a device like Omicron
– someone helps, how can I test the GE L90 diff relay as a stand-alone without connecting with another one. You can only force digital outputs and simulate inputs. You can’t force analog signals such as voltage and currents. You need an external source
– I’ve never dealt with this relay but If it is for line differential, chances are that you’ll need two relays. the receiver and transmitter
– But you can still use the primary injection method to do the testing
– Do you have to test line differential?
– You can go to setting, testing, channel test, and loopback. Inject currents, the relay will consider one current as local and one as remote

– Hello guys, I’d like to ask maybe some of you ever test this type of relay?
– Where we can find the tms
– I think tms is 2
– TMS is nothing but a round dial
– Yes it is 2
– In this case, it’s 2

– for ref relay input problem. Ref620
– From the drawing, check the terminal point associated with this input. Isolate it then troubleshoot that circuit to find out where the “high/positive” signal is coming from
– why inside relay see this message drawing as not a problem?


– I am working with a 2X300 MW thermal power plant in India and our 400 kv switchyard is having Alstom MICOM P 441, REL 670 for protection also for the generator we are having siemens make 7UM622 and MICOM p345.
Is there any standard that speaks of about frequency of relay testing?
– Normally frequency of Numerical Relay testing depends on the utility practices.

– In our utility, we do annually. But in my opinion, it is not required annually.
– Numerical relay can be tested for 5 years once. Scheme testing can be done annually.

– Please I need the manual of Siprotec 7SA87
– Hello everyone, could you help me with the function of the TC1 on the delta winding?
– It’s a current transformer for the winding temperature gauge

– someone knows what is the difference between I> and I>>?
– I> is the short time protection setting and I>> is the instantaneous protection settings of the overcurrent relay
– Can somebody tell me what happened if the tripping coil resistance and a closing coil resistance of vcb are the same? then there is any impact on the performance of vcb?
– You can return to the datasheet of the circuit breaker and closing and tripping coil, you can find the standard values of the resistance of the trip and closing coil and compare it to the measurement
– I just want to know the theoretical answer Behind this.
– From an electrical engineering point of view
– closing coil resistance is designed much less than tripping coil resistance to having a stronger magnetic field
– Yes I know it is designed, but my question is if they are the same then, what happened?

– does somebody here have some “how to configure Modbus protocol in SEL relays” document or some kind like that?
– Someone has a method statement of Testing CVT Tan Delta

-Does anybody have a project for the RED670 relay?
– Anything, in particular, you are after !’vv?
– Current line differential relays are fairly straightforward?

– Anyone knows what is the problem when a source (power plant) transmits power to a substation, then the neutral current monitored in the power meter is a bit higher normally?
– I know that It means that there is an unbalance current on each phase. But what else can be that causes the phenomenon?
– The P.F on phase R and S are lagging 0.9, but phase T shows a leading P.F.


– In case it’s an internal fault, just assume that the 87 T relay and Ref relay will trip?
– your understanding is correct. But apart from it, if primary Overcurrent (50/51P) works, it will trip the CB 150 kV, and how about the CB 20 kV?
– Is it required to trip the CB 20 kV too?
– 87T trip, REF not really, depending on the fault. PP fault or 3P internal fault won’t initiate REF
– To isolate the power from LV side too, in case of bus section in 20 kV side is closed
– Depends on the control scheme we use in most of the cases we adopt if HV side CB trips on protection LV CB also gets trip, REF is more sensitive for earth faults in the differential zone. If it is an earth fault REF trips faster than Diff.
– I think that 20 kV CB will need to trip too to prevent reverse power from the remanent voltage (power) at Bus 20 kV side. But if there is a remanent voltage on the 20 kV side, is it possible to induced voltage in the primary winding to create a current.
– Since you have NGR, earth fault close to neutral may not be detected by REF.
– Percentage of the unprotected zone can be calculated based on relay settings and CT ratio.
– Yes. due to the resistance, the sensitivity will be limited.
– Have everyone ever tried to the induced voltage on the secondary winding of step down Transformer i.e. let’s say 150/33 kV. How about the primary winding transformer, does it will generate a low current or a harmonic current?
– Actually, fault moves towards the source. In actual LV will not trip because the fault current will move towards the source side (150kv) side but if inter trip function is available then LV 20kv side will trip too
– Anyone knows about the calculation to get the value of Z1 Sensit. Iph>1 ?
– Fault current should be above this value to identify zone 1 or zone 2 faults
– I got it. But how to get this value.
– Okay. I have found it was 1.2 x CCC / CT Ratio
– CCC indicates which value? please clarify I doubt the Current Carrying Capacity Of the conductor
– In Distance Relay
– Anyone knows the CB IS( In-Service) Time function?
– Since I close my CB then the IS time starts to count to set AR Block
– If CB is manually closed then after this time CB will be considered in service and the Auto Recloser function will be enabled too.
– But why it AR block indication appear.
– After the CB IS Time starts to count. Still struggling on this distance relay
– Because during CB IS time AR Function is disabled to block the AR on SOTF fault, change to ABB REL670
– What type of relay is this one?
– P443 Micom
– does anybody here has a p14d Modbus register
– who knows the ZIV default password
– Any ZIV relays specialist

What is voltage?
– plz check the gain & another setting for your operator panel
– 460v
– there is no problem with the engine & gen-set itself it is the only problem with the operator panel feedback signal which will be generated as per setting
– Cause freq regulation is in generator itself not in Woodward
– we try to bleed fuel on the generator. but nothing happened
– I thought Woodward only does parallel synchronization and some protection functions but is only using small loads that’s why we don’t sync our generators.
– I looked at the manual for easygen. Actually, there is a function of frequency control. I have the same system
– But never got time to check every function in Woodward.

– 132kV transformer HV breaker was closed on NO load and the LV breaker was open, but suddenly differential relay operates and gives a differential trip. In the fault study, the HV side current was 860 Amp. Somebody tell me that what could be the reason?
– For how much time the transformer was on no load? 132/11.5kV?
-Approximately 10 to 15 minutes
– MVA?
-132/22 kV (wind power plant)
– There must b some issue,
– So this is not inrush
– Do TTR and winding resistance,
– If it is the newly commissioned plant then the issue will be in the relay setting otherwise check transformer winding…do the IR.
– I did an excitation test @ 10 kV and the results were OK.
– Plant is in operation for the last 4 years. You will have to do TTR and winding resistance to diagnose the matter, Hope you will get the problem by doing these tests,

– Any mechanical protection PRD, BUCH has operated. Did u retrieve the fault records from the relay?
– TTR?
– turns ratio test
– No trip from mechanical protection.
– In fault record HV current was 860Amp and LV current was 0 amp.
– Check the CT ratio adopted in the differential relay and what was the differential current setting adopted and actual current during relay operated?
– Transformer turns ratio

– 860AMP WAS SINGLE PHASE OR TWO PHASES OR IN 3 PHASES?
– In 3 phase
– Did you check the lighting arrester AT 132 KV SIDE?
– Yes surge arrestor can also be damaged or weakened, as you are using Yard CT for Differential protection
– do also check your HV arrestors

– Can anyone help me with the PACiS configurator?

– I need help to analyze this Disturbance Fault Record whether it is due to Lighting or Flash.
– It was a fault on Line Diff and Reclose on Phase R.
– Anyone Plz tell me, what is relay coordination and what its functions are?
– Line auto-reclosed successfully?

– We have 50/1 5p15 CT installed on a 33 kv feeder whose fault current initially was very less but now the Power supplier has installed a 50MVA transformer with 11% impedance
29etap08:55 – abb pcm600: And fault current is almost 8000Amps, I believe I need to upgrade protection CT to meet high fault current
– Can anyone suggest What’s the 33kv fault level?
– Now it is 8000 amps. Fault current level 50 MVA transformer installed at state electricity board substation and we are consumers with 33 kv feeder voltage
– 50MVA 220/33 KV star/ star connected transformer 11% impedance
– Is the ct used only for over current and earth fault?
– Yes 50,51, 50G, 51G
– Strictly speaking, I would put 200/1 5P40 2.5 VA. However, if the relays have CT saturation detection, you could go lower.
– What’s the relay being used?
– P127
– Do you have the CT test results. In particular the DC resistance of the CT.
-Can you give your consideration or calculations for this selection
– So you need an accuracy limit factor of 40, with a low burden.

– you won’t need much burden as the relay is numerical and installed inside the switchgear
– Your existing 50/1, 15 VA may actually work if you knew the DC resistance.
– Do I have to check with the CT testing kit??
– I believe CT supplier should have this information
– Yeah if you have test equipment (Omicron CR analyzer or similar) that should be easily possible
– That’s possible, however normally the manufacturer will not specify the DC resistance for 5P/10P class acts. No harm in asking them though
– CT’s Analyser
– Ok I will check with him today, as I don’t have an omicron kit available nearby That is the only option I have

– How do you coordinate DC resistance with fault current?
– So if Rct<= 1.75 ohm, you can use it For a 50/1 A ct this may be achievable.
need to Replace 33 kv side CT with, 1000/1A, 5P10,15 VA With this approach, I’d reckoned to check the pickup values.

– Ynynd1 And tertiary (delta winding) is unloaded?
– Then no issue transformer will follow system phase sequence,

– What is the difference between IN-HV Deriv Angle and IN-HV Measd Angle on monitoring online?
– Derived means the neutral current has been calculated by summation of IA, IB, and IC whereas measured means neutral wire of ct secondary is connected to the neutral element of the relay, and it is actually being measured,
– What is a dead zone in protection??
– Dead zone is the Zone between CT & Open CB. It’s the point not seen in the zone of protection that of a relay. If a fault occurs at this point, the relay will not issue a trip. Usually between CT and breaker
– IN HV derive is neutral vector calculation, meanwhile In HV measured is a neutral REF winding
– We cannot say it is neutral ref winding until we see the setting of the relay,
– setting of the wiring diagram right. The relay and schematic drawing setting depict the connection of the ct secondary wires with the differential relay.

sample discussions:

If there be a fault during the charging, only the setting of high set elements HS1 and HS2 were there. If the value of the current sense by the relay is more than the set point, the relay generates the tripping command?

– Sel is using two functions at the same time. Blocking (cross block) plus harmonic restraint. In that case, if both functions are working in parallel, and during energization, the relay detects fault current. Or high current in any phase with little or no harmonics. Harmonic restraints func will issue trips without going towards high set or unrestraint.

– What is the DCRP approval?
– For Ministry approval in Oman

– Y 67 function is always +45 degrees?
– Even I also have seen + 30. So it depends on how earthing system achieved

– In a line has underground cables & OHL line together how do they calculate distance setting?
– The total impedance will be ohl+ug
– No, it’s called a hybrid feeder.
Current differential with backup distance protections. distance protection zone 1 should be calculated accordingly from the OHL end.
– I think in this case separate Zone is added to the Underground feeder to block Auto Reclosure
– but FO can’t be laid along with OHL
– What if the feeder has more pieces of cable combined with OHL, Where the exact zone can’t be defined?
– Why VFD isn’t contributing the fault current into the system?
– FO can be layed along with OHL. We have Differential protection in line through FO cable

– My relay version is 5. can I use this
– Your relay is pickup still not operated
– CB compartment sf6 gas low in stage 1 or 2.?
– I think the alarm is stage 1 trip is stage 2
– UV1 IS AN ALARM
– If possible can you change Remote to local?
– Please check the configuration, if you giving a start for UV1. It will not trip, in Siemens Relay, UV will operate when the minimum current setting is off. Please check in this relay also if the Minimum current requirement is there means to make it Off, Otherwise, check any block is given. For example VT MCB Off status like that.

– from the top near the main display 50 operate led and 51 operate led light blinking with red color, so what is the meaning of this?
-Now transformer operates with this condition, and only one feeder loaded with 5 amp only.

– So is any problem arise in this type of condition? And also how to reset this one to get the normal operation?
– If the master trip has operated…just reset the master trip relay and charge the breaker.
– To rest LEDs just press clear and go through the navigation

– Can I get the default passwords of 7sj82 & 7ut85?
– available on siemens website

-How do we calculate the tap ratio? Every time shows While I upload file to new relay, may I know what’s problem is?
– Check the error
– Existing file details are
Configuration version: V07.31
Communication configuration version: V07.54
– Use the same version to extract the file other else download offline and then try

– New relay firmware version V 07.54 Can’t connect with a new relay. Not communicate with new relay .. every time failed.
– connect by front port through of 7sj82 relay
– Check if you can see the relay in your online connection. Relay firmware version V07.54 and Existing file firmware version V07.31
Maybe you have a problem with the USB driver.
– It’s necessary to install the same firmware version on your computer
– The Protocols device driver is installed too?

– Line voltage inject 30 degrees lead to phase voltage, Ryb 0 _120 120
– Check voltage across the coil point
– Manual have?
– Check your schematic drawing

– What is the reason for L1-E, L2-E, L3-E voltage higher than L1-N, L2-N, L3-N?
– May be neutral is at some potential higher than earth potential. It is feeding a temporary generator and at the generator, side neutral was grounded
– Maybe that grounding is not proper
-Neutral is not properly grounded, therefore proper reading is coming w.r.t earth instead of neutral.

– How can I change 7UT85 Relay input by DIGSI 5?
– How can I change 7sj82 relay output (NO/NC) by software?
– Through CFC only

– how to update the firmware of GE Relay type MIF II.
– I have a problem with the magnetic balance test in the transformer. lv side magnetic balance is ok but the HV side is not okay?
– Please check proper termination of cables and also check any carbonization at the terminal point

– Then there are any flux leakages inside any core is more as compared to other cores where the winding is done.
– Try to demagnetize the core.
– Connect LV supply to LV side and switch ON & OFF several times say 20
– before magnetic balance which test had you perform
– If vector test or any other test u have performed then this type of error may occur

– If u have done DC winding resistance test then there may be the possibility of demagnetization of core
– How can I do time synchronization through SNTP ON REF615?
– I changed the IP address but the time and date are not synchronous.

– ABB REF615 RELAY -SNTP IP ADDRESS:172.16.0.140. Is it a new CT or old ??
1) As it is primary wounded CT, insulation fails between primary to secondary windings. Because of voids presence in epoxy moldings.
2) when it is loaded condition, secondary circuits may be opened and leads to high voltage on its terminals which leads to insulation fails on the secondary coil and inter turns fault happened.
– This old one.. and in-cabin we found humidity.
– CT circuit is ok. Because I already checked through injections of current.
– Then in this case more moisture contents are present in primary winding molding portions which lead to such.
– proceed to partial discharge (PD) tests

– anything can cause a flash inside the switchgear itself? which can be found during maintenance?
– all this can be found during maintenance test/troubleshooting/clearance for normally open Bay.
– broken CT / crack on the body/insulation breaks down.
once a flash happened no one can be 100% exactly sure what exactly causes the problem inside the SWG parts.
if Arc flash happened to the old switchgear I would inspect and test the other CT inside the substation.

– test CT and visualizy check
– to spare panel / normally open, etc
– CT is not affected by any external impact. Failure happens inside the CT itself

– For these results transformer is healthy and if there is a problem what it could be?
– Red phase Resistance
– What is the problem of the red phase?
– Used new CT’S with new switchgear.
– I think the red phase is dead short
– Why is the second phase to phase and phase to neutral is same value?

– I want to know why you see the red phase is defective
– Have you checked the factory test report?
– I didn’t found it
– But due to physical inspection we saw suite on yellow phase
– It seems the yellow phase flashed
– What about IR value?
– But I am so sure that Y I have the result for discussion
– what is IR?
– Insulation resistance
– Primary and secondary are separate coils
Hv – ground = 18Gohm
LV – Ground = 18 M ohm
HV – LV = 42 G ohm
– RY and BR values are equal
– YB mostly 2 times
– So are PHASE only possible to short?
– If so that would also reflect in ratio, vector group, magnetizing current?
– That is the nameplate of that transformer
– Are you measure these test
– Sorry this is delta winding so
-why phase may open, How you measured these results? By using multimeter or transformers winding resistance measurement kits like TRM or CPC 100 ??
– If you use multimeter secondary value will show a minimum of 0.1 ohms in multimeter but if you use proper testing equipment means values to be in milliohms
– Yes for secondary should use this equipment
– What I think why phase is open hence when you measure YB the result =RY + RB, see even vector group connection diagram
– Actually, if it is star means red short but this is delta so yellow should open
– Multimeter

– Hello! I´m changing a communication SIPROTEC 4 7SA612<->(RS485)RMC20 RuggedCom<->(RS232)PC to SIPROTEC 4 7SA612<->(RS485)[RS416 RuggedCom]. At SIPROTEC 7SA612 I´m using the PortB with an AME module (pins 3 as RS485 A Signal, 5 as GND, and 8 as B signal). At RS416 I´m using pins 2 as A signal, 7 as B signal, and 5 as GND. Between pins 2 and 7 I´m using a 120Ohm resistor. Unhappily, the new configuration isn´t running. Although, using RMC to convert 485 to 232 before connecting RS416, the communication runs. So, some suggestions to establish communication RS485 between SIPROTEC4 7SA612 and RS416?

– What’s cb2?
– What should I do about this?
– Your DIGSI need to have the same P.Set as the device have, So update your DIGSI which is suitable for your device
– Where 2 generators are sharing a network load both are in droop configuration? What would be the effect of manual increasing the speed on one of the generators?
– 1. If the network is grid-connected, the frequency is locked, hence the generator will take more load.

– If it is an isolated system, then system frequency will increase?
However, when 2Gens ate running one should be master and the other should be in droop
-What is droop configuration?
– You’ll find this in the turbine control panel. Generally, For turbine control in grid sync condition or load sharing mode.

– In the shaft, we have CT and the CT cable connected to the shaft current monitoring device
– Can we able to communicate through a Multimode patch cord on a Single-mode port? anybody knows pls clear me. Insulation failure of rotor wdg?
– No everything it’s OK actually when the turbine rotates high speed the shaft current also increase that I want to know what are the would-be shaft current increase
– shaft current increased means, on load if MVAr is High that time shaft current is higher side if the load is less than rated and MVAr is low u get low shaft current

– What’s mean by cold load pickup protection?

– What is the purpose of this Aviation ball?
– Giving information to pilot that there is a HIGH TENSION LINE. Warning balls for airplanes

The final setting is 85v stage 1 pick up so when I reduced the voltage from 100 until 85V its picked up LED & BO Also but When I need to Chek drop up it will drop up only 101 V
– So it’s showing when the system is healthy to still UV is not reset. So how can I make drop up LED & BO before Nominal voltage 100V
– You want to Decrease the drop-off ratio, this setting will come additional setting check
– My drop-off ratio is 1.2. I think to keep a minimum of 1.05
– So you will get 85×1.05=89.25V
– actually, the secondary of a bushing CT is connected with AVR for OLTC because AVR needs the ongoing load value of a transformer. This means that in case of overloading conditions, AVR will be blocked. So, one CT is enough for giving a response.
– Here in all OLTC, CT is connected in Y Phase only. Is there any specific reason for it?
– Maybe it’s a practice
– AVR is using just to maintain the Nominal voltage. This CT is are using only for measuring purposes. Not protection purpose. So one phrase is enough for AVR
– What is the need for measuring current in OLTC?
-: In AVR CT they are using 2 purpose
1)when current reach 120 % as per customer AVR will not give rise or lower command (AVR BLOCK)
2)circulating reactive current detection That CT is used for winding temperature measurement

– I am going to take the initiative to offer a 100 percent free training course on Autocad Electrical which is one of the most wanted software globally.

– Hi, anybody has a tool for making an operating curve for OC, EF, Overflux where I can merge 2 to 3 stage DT/IDMT Related to IEC 618590 protocol. actually, I need to merge Generator Over flux and my proposed setting DT/IDMT needs to merge on the graph.
– Do anyone knows what is the purpose of the Lightning arrester. I know the purpose of surge arrester But need to know why we use lightning word especially lightning is quick, like 50us, and surger is to 200ms to 1000m. lightning has bigger voltage, and surge bigger energy.
– Lightning arrester is used for high-voltage against natural phenomena. a surge arrester is used for high-voltage -Please explain a simple process of how this occurs with an example if possible for you
– Lightning arrester..1)used in buildings is a plain rod with ionizing effect and transmits the high energy to the ground..2) used in switchyards and generator terminals is an NLR device which conducts the high energy to ground, it can also be in a combination of surge capacitor depending upon the equipment being protected.

– What will happen when lightning occurs on a transmission line. Then will it travel to substations?
– OHGW is used to protect T/L from lighting. It didn’t travel to substations, however, each piece of equipment in the substation has a separate bodyguard for lighting
– Then sir why do we use a lightening word for LA If is not protect from lightening ie from the sky
– LA is installed in a substation near T/F. In starting also Means incoming of Line. Sometimes on both sides of T/F. In some, they are only installed on the HV side.
– That’s why the first equipment in swyd where this transmission line ends is the LA to protect from lightning and surges as well.
– Shield wire is also part of the lightning protection system to protect trafo from switching surges

– Why secondary side of CT is shorted?
– How to measure PT resistance???
– With the help of the resistance meter kit.
– Do you mean pt winding resistance?
Yup insulation resistance with the help of megger?

-Earthing should choose from the VT body or another point?
– What is the range (min) & (max) value of insulation resistance?
– Because at secondary side current is hardly 1 or 5A so in that case voltage is too much If we open the terminal there is a chance of the blast
– What will happen when the secondary is open-circuited and your primary is on load, according to the transformation ratio, the primary has to be there is secondary, As secondary is open-circuited, the current will flow through the core?
– As the core has a high impedance, even a small amount of current through it will produce an extra-high voltage which eventually fails the insulation and a short circuit happens.
– So in short never leave your secondary in CT open circuit or lose.
– Any spare core should be shorted
– A PT or VT has its primary resistance (is from the HV tap node to the ground) in the range of 10-100 ohms.

– It is an old distance relay, and it works on the principle of resistance per phase?
– This is not a distance relay. This I’d line differential relay for a short distance with a pilot wire protection system.
– The two pilot wires are calculated with a loop resistance 2*R and a resistor R
– So how can I calculate the setting? any procedure?
– The Instrument transformers do alter the original signal during transformation, so the relay allows for a minimum phase shift during transformation, so the phase shift can be accommodated
– It is a family of the DLN Should give a basic understanding
18/abb pcm600, abb14 –IEC 61850 training Bhatti: I try to do so.
– Transmission line protection by pilot wires (pilot relaying) is limited to 30 to 40 km in route length. For longer transmission lines and sub-transmission lines or even distribution feeders, distance protection is used.
– So they are in theory basically born of the same philosophy of resistance per length of the chosen pilot wires
– This is limited to the pilot wire differential applications.

– What will happen if one CT sec. star point towards the object and one CT sec away from the object in differential protection?
– The relay will act for external fault.

– I have one question that what is the formula or how do we calculate the arc flash energy values for the specific switchgear?
– There would be a non-zero component of differential current on all phases. t = time duration of the fault
– You may also star towards the object and load. these features can be set in the above-named relays Once it has clocking features, it also has to come with sequence tweaking for they work together to give the microprocessor a sense of rotating.
– DY set the clock at 6 to invert, not o

– Can You share any testing procedure and method of transformer testing Pdf?
Please

– I have to replace existing Solkar Rf relays with Numerical relays. What consequences need to face during these modifications? Someone does this job before please suggest a line of actions, logical sequence without interruption of buses.

– What is Digsi 4 & Digsi 5 software? how to use this?
– First of all, you need to install it on your computer. Digsi 5 and 4 are the software we used to configure the Siemens Siprotec relay.
– Can I configure siemens all types of the relay to using of this software?
– I don’t think. Digsi is proprietary software.

– How to simulate protection function using a virtual injection in Vamp255? How to assign the DR in Micom Esergy Studio soft?

– Voltage measurements issue across the output of the charger
– Voltage across the phase- neutral found ok. 120 v. But across the phase – the ground couldn’t be found. Slowly go to zero volts.
– How much is neutral to the ground? What is the charger rating?
– Zero volt
-Maximum current 27.2 Amp
– That is what we call floating voltage, phantom voltage (Ghost Voltage)
-The reason for this is there is no real link between those two points Or there is saturation in the source hence the load loading the source phenomenon
-This can happen if, for example, you are trying to power a 100W 120v rated electric bulb using the output from a source that has a lesser burden let’s say a VT with a 50VA burden
– Check for Case 3
– what is the actual reason behind this issue
– I mean why it happened like this
– If case 1 is suspected Look for a digital multimeter with an LoZ voltage reading range check for potential. If the value is zero still check for Case 2. Short the two suspected terminals through a 2 Amp fuse. If the fuse does not blow Check for Case 3, Look at the burden of the transformer, and test the in-built transformer for coil continuity.
– By which time you would have already found your problem?
– Please note that all the steps have to be done with any multimeter that has the (LoZ) Auto Voltmeter. Start a Private chat with me, if you still need help troubleshooting
– In PCM 600 SOFTWARE unable to read relay. can anyone help?
– It says relay is an inconsistent state. Try again to read from the relay. Make sure u are on the main page of HMI
– Check the IP address. Then relay reset using the power of the relay. Then try to connect hope resolve
– Made Power on/off then the PCM 600 read from Relay
– What are the criteria for min line length protected through modern distance relay?
– I think it can be 100 meters. There are no criteria it’s all about economics and how sensitive the supply is No minimum or maximum length! Notice that during shunt voltage becomes very small and currently becomes very high, hence admittance tends to move towards infinity. But for a very short distance, line differential should be preferred. The 9 members of the matrices can only be compared to the set values by the relay microprocessor as the diagonal members are in theory smaller than others.
– Distance protection zone 2,3 operating time coordination with backup OC n EF protection if not meet grading shall we block the all zones
– Hi. I have one key question that shirt circuit ratings are normally given in 1 sec or 3 sec. For instant 25Ka for 3 sec or may 25ka for 1 sec.

-So how do we choose 1 sec or 3 sec or decide or go for type testing
– The essence of this rating supposedly on switchgear is to know the limit you can push the interrupter to, but it is not good to test switchgear at these values (not that you can get a 25KA test kit) because this would be defeating the purpose of NDT Non-Destructive Testing of the switchgear interrupter.

And for a transformer, motor, and other devices, if Isc is on the nameplate then it is the current that would spoil the coil if it lasts 1 – 3secs. The maximum short circuit would be less than or equal to the rated current times the inverse impedance voltage.

– what is the usual Zone 1 trip time setting in distance protection?
– 0 mS
– How to get Wh values from siemens relay through IEC61850? We are getting only pulse qty
-How about 50 ms Zone 1 distance protection trip time setting?
– Even setting 0, the actual trip will be around 40ms may take?
– Is the relay in circuit/ already installed and in use?

– Someone, can you help explain wet/dry contact?
– With voltage/potential it is called wet contact. Does anyone have to cost data of medium voltage submarine cables?

– Anybody knows about the dielectric strength test of oil used in transformers
Kindly share about its minimum acceptance result standard if any?
– Yes tried but nothing displays that’s why I ask?? Could you tell me the default password??
– 2 for configuration change
– You can reset from relay only.
– First of all go. relay default front page then -> give password down key and reset (ok)
-Actually, I reviewed the manual it was written 4digit password but didn’t mention password accordingly we just tried 0000, 2222, 4444. These three also passwords are incorrectly shown.
– You communicate with pc? Default password 2 for configuration change/ 1 for operator
– Only 2 password
– No just by hand
– Ok. Press only 2

– Can anyone share an SLD for protection?
– Please share the full version pdf of IEC 62271-200&100
– Anyone can share IEC 61643?
– Does anyone have any testing procedure for Ziv relays

– Can anyone share your area panel scheme which shows DC control supply distribution and how redundancy is achieved for control supply in case of failure of the one?
– This is a good system as it parallels feeding and it will not be in if one of the power supply get trip
– Did anyone noticed a dc voltage spike at the output of the diode assembly? due to multiple dc earth faults.? Actually, in my system, 4 blocking diodes are being used. Two earth faults occurred simultaneously in the system, first earth in source-1 +ve branch and second earth on source-2 negative branch due to which system voltage got doubled to 440V
– Did anyone went through such kind of situation?
– Is there any difference between core balance CT and Toroid CT?
– Some Toroid CTs are used for core balance measurements because those have very high sensitivity & resolution.

– Please share the practical Earthing book.
– Does anyone have ABB SPAJ 140C or 150C operational manual. please share
-Please send a differential relay Calibration test report format.

– Can we install/retrofit the ERMS switch in the existing LT swgr panel?

– Who has experience with microgrids here?
– Distance relay test procedure please by Omicron without OCC
– You should do it yourself because there would be peculiarities to your system not in mine
– hope you have a CMC kit and a license file?
– Do have any calculations for RIO Graph .. please share

– We are having random tripping of Terasaki ACB (ARS216S) which is connected on the primary side of the step-up Tx (415/6.6kV) which eventually is causing to trip all the GCB’s connected in parallel to different gensets. Any idea what can cause this issue? The sec side of the TX is HV VSD which is running absolutely fine without creating any issue.
– Tripping is immediate after startup?
-No. The system sometimes runs for even half an hour and then just trips for no reason without even introducing a new load
– More. ACB should have a built-in event recorder. It will give you cause and time of tripping
-How to download that? Is there software or something?
– Try step by step to analyze and move forward to correct
– No. It should have an LCD that shows real-time current. Configuration settings and the event history of ladt tripping
– Can you share its screenshot or video
– Yes correct. Will ask for the photos once it will occur again. Right now the system is working fine for almost 9hrs

-Quick CMC through Distance protection test possible sir? Or advance Distance module required for the test?
-Testing is possible, but need to manually calculate the current and voltage value for a specific impedance, in quick CMC.
– May I get manually calculation of Impedance
– You can select directly impedance instead of Voltage & Current…option available…
– Distance protection test report may I get sir? Calculation of distance protection may I get sir? Please share.
– Artificially Line Ground fault created on Raigarh puglur HVDC to tune relay settings.
– Always theoretical & assumption workout may not gives accuracy. Sometimes needs to be tune in a practical way
– I saw firsthand something like this go wrong, and it was fatal
– I am working in HVDC Raigarh and this line fault is tried several times in the commissioning period to get accurate tuning of the online dc line fault locator.
– I know it is really dangerous to carry out the line fault successfully
– There are remote controlled projectile devices, so try to be on a safe side
-: How actually is that fault created?

-I need this relay technical manual anyone has kindly share with me
– Is it possible to share ur valuable advice on the following concern. Resistive/impedance reduced fault happens when the fault is not happening at the first bus, say after x km of line/earth. Recall that the line has intrinsic properties of ( y + j z) ohm/km. Also, there is an intrinsic resistivity of the earth which increases its resistance by distance R = pL/A
– Why do we need DEF protection in distance? But 87 cannot detect Internal faults? Is REF more sensitive as compared to the differential
– I read somewhere that phase-to-ground faults are highly resistive, and to clear these faults we need more sensitive protection like DEF?
– SEF not DEF
– I think he’s asking about the Directional Earth fault
– 87 detects internal faults on phases
– Yes I am asking about DEF also which is mostly used in distance relays for transmission lines
– What’s the stability test? How can perform for 66 VK substation?
– Please send the method procedure for this test.
– When the energized line comes in contact with a grounded thing like a tree branch it finds its path through the ground back to the substation. Because the magnitude of the current may not be enough to offset the 0.1 – 0.2 I> set for earth fault, it detects only through the NGCT a negative feedback current more like the SBEF but it monitors when there is a reverse from s2 – s1
This means DEF is used because it is used primarily for phase to ground faults and is more sensitive to Ph-G faults?

– Anybody knows about the multi-stage series power filter?
– There is no potential difference hence no effect
-No. due to the complete cycle.. neutral should be needed.
-Consider Phase to phase then?
– I guess. Phase to phase, it will come as shock as the circuit is completed
– It will be a short circuit
-This person will get electrocuted based on the condition of his hands (ie., Surface resistance) and his body resistance… Pls remember the step potential diag, with differences, the earth is replaced with conductor and legs with hands…
– We need to know the cable impedance per meter, the current flowing, and distance hand-hand
-Voltage drop is negligible. See also resistivity of aluminum vs soil resistivity

– How can calculate the Vector group of CT?
– CT doesn’t have any VG
– However, they do have minimal phase shifts
– Just D or Y connection depending on the application?
-basically, this CT is used for Differential protection. Star is best for the object to be protected. Star point on all s2 for HV CTs. Star point on all s1 for LV CTs
-This is center taped so s3 for full ratio or s2 for half ratio

– Does anybody assist what is slope value for the single side-feed line? I saw the manual they didn’t mention value. Is there any fixed value for that slope? In setting also didn’t find value for that single feed value.
– Slopes are calculated! And it is the boundaries that set trip areas and operating regions. What is your operation criterion?

– When I want to test different Protection for DYN11 using quick CMC how much the angle of secondary current when I use 0 angles for primary side current certainly for the same phase.
– For Dyn11. 180+30=210 & balance angle Should be applied in LV side
– why +30 for 11 I guess it is – 30
– -330(CW)=30(ACW)
– Why use quick CMC? When you can use Advanced different operating characteristics?
– Try any of the two and just input your system parameters for both test object and system. Omicron would do the rest for you.
– Actually, as you said it is better but there was a problem. When I open diff characteristic the connection between CMC and pc interrupted
– Have you ever had the same issue? Actually, I don’t know the reason

-What CMC model do you have?
– Cmc 356
– Okay then you should be having RJ45 Network cable
– When I use OC. quick no problem When I use advance diff the problem occurs
– Download the latest model of Test universe and install it. Most likely your antivirus engulfed some registries that contain omicron executable files
– Deactivate it when installing and reactivate back shortly after. Check if u have a license for advance differential

– How to test current reversal and power swing in p546 micom
– Kindly how to test differential really using quick CMC

– help please by checking to debug online in PCM ABB REL670 is showing block input 1 to its all protection what can be the reason?
– means block input is 1 there is nothing attached to it but it is 1 and no function is tripping

– Anyone has an idea in EF19 thermal overload relay make abb While testing relay operating less than setting current (that means 75% of setting current)?

– what‘s the reason for Using the function 59N and if necessary creating a ring loop for all my relays in the SWGR??
– Do you have information about C&P in Substation?
-132kV, 24MVAR Capacitor Banks (group 1 & 2 = each 12Mvar, 8MVAR/phase) when tested on-site by applying three phases 400V give acceptable values of 318mA on each phase thru clamp meter.
– However, when group 2 of the blue phase was intentionally cut off for testing purposes, it showed the following suspicious result? (instead of 318mA)
Blue: Group-1 160mA (normal) and group-2: 0A (acceptable value)
– What is the reason behind 290mA values for red and yellow? It shouldn’t be 318mA?
Anyone, please
– What could be the solution for the above error
– Is it over Ethernet or Front port
– Also you can ignore the error. In the case of the front port try with Moxacable
– Schneider Recommenda Moxa cable for front port communication. It’s with Mona cable and front port
-What is the communication port number your using?
– Can you send the photo of the device manager moxa driver settings?
– Use com1 for communication. If still not able to send a file, try to send the required parameters only. Open setting file, say you want to send VT PRIMARY, then click on and send data to the device

– If Anyone has a 7sk80 thermal overload calculation sheet pls share
-While extracting disturbance recorder in Micom p643 relay, we have this error operation failed?

– In my power plant, DC system +ve is solidly earthed. Checking it through megger to make the BGFT kit but am now able to locate the fault. Due to a system running I cannot switch off the dc controlled feeders. Can anyone suggest to me any other option, idea, or any other kit through which I can get the help.?
– Megger BGFT is the best way to locate the DC ground fault without switching off DC circuits, u just need to measure the impedance from the main source until reaching the branch circuit that has the fault
– But it is failed at my location to trace the fault. As per OEM due to complex DC circuits and the use of electronic cards in breaker feeders is not allowing the kit to trace. But this should not be the reason. Looking for some more options to identify
– I have a question for everybody, Anyone has a document or example for the cargability of CTS?
– I am doing testing for sepam87T, diff function does not operate but other functions in the relay are operating. I tried to fix this issue by activation output and led but still not working. The relay read current on both sides and read diff current but there is no output
– I didn’t check sepam87T. CT Matching Factor (ICT) Star point of the CT connection Vector connections of TR While injecting dual Current, check the phase angle magnitude /Compensation.
– Check output configuration, And Confirm any Blocking signal generate due to Breaker feedback / CTS…
– Actually, I checked the output configuration. What do you mean by blocking? For Example 3 Wdg differential, only you are injecting Two Wdg, Third wdy CTS may Block the output But Function will work…

– Can anyone help me to resolve this issue, I installed PCM for the first time.
– can you see some QR codes in IED?
– No, nothing like this on IED
– 220kv Alstom china, breaker drawing required, kindly share
– Hello! Suggestions to power simulators instead of double or omicron?
-ISA. DRTS series from ISA

– Crowbar failed alarm was triggered in my AVR system (ABB UNITROL 5000) and the same got reset automatically. failed alarm triggered. Can anyone tell me the actual root cause to avoid in the future.?

– Do anyone has Abb REF 541 relay operational manual please share it with us
https://abbtm.fi.abb.com/PST/Account/LogOn?ReturnUrl=%2fPST%2f
– Can anyone please tell me the testing procedure of low impedance busbar protection for 132kv single breaker double busbar protection?
– Let’s see your single line first
-Next step?
– Testing procedures can have peculiarities. I would give you the testing procedure if I see the power flow / single line.
– Loss of Excitation of generator protection test process or calculation may I know sir .. please share related documents.

– 90% stator earth fault protection Test process please share with me.
– Have any process. Voltage injected in relay PT coil but not trip. What is the protection operating criterion? Is it only open delta voltage-based or NGT voltage-based or both?
– Open delta voltage based
– Inject normal voltage in any one phase of terminal pt so that no VT alarm came. Then inject in open delta pt and NGT as setting values. It should trip
– Setting value 14 volt
– Anyone can give an idea about starting auxiliary relays manufacturing?
-Setting value injected Ji .. but not coming trip /alarm
– Is there any other ct or vt alarm coming during voltage injection?
– LV BCT can’t be ignored for REF. For LV side BCT is mandatory for REF SCHEME
– So anybody has used IPCT? What are its consequences?
– These connections might be possible when one of the windings of t/f is delta connected (like dyn11, ynd1, etc.) but these connections can’t be made on auto t/f
– So, you mean either higher values or IPCTs should be used for mismatched REF if it is connected!

– Anyone has a CGI14S manual?
– Can someone please help me with the soft copy of NEC2020
– CG relay communication software anyone has?
– Default password..?
