– Anyone knows why we are using this diode and what it uses
1) Normal Diode allows current to flow in forwarding bias.
2) Zenner Diode allows current to flow in reverse bias only.

-Two phases show negative values but one phase shows positive values, how?
– Depend on load, may you try to trace 3 line diagram until load (wiring internal of load equipment). Depending on load, may you try to trace 3 line diagram until load (wiring internal of load equipment)
– If the vts at 3phases are exposed to fault what is the overcurrent protection behavior on this circuit? If all the electrical protections failed at the substation and just the physical protection operate what is the problem with this substation?

1), how we can detect CT saturation in the case of Low Impedance Relays?
2). Why is it essential to detect CT saturation only in case of low impedance Relays?
– I need a proper to the point response (no white paper/presentation please) for my proper understanding of this CT saturation detection technique.

– What is the main Function of the CSD relay?
– Controlled switching device (either implemented using a point on wave device or pre-insertion resistors in circuit breakers) helps achieve switching at either voltage zero or current zero (depending on the equipment to be switched) for instance a capacitor bank you would switch at voltage zero whereas for an inductor you would switch at current zero. CSD is typically applied in long transmission lines, filter banks, or converter transformers. By using CSD in the above cases it helps to prevent switching overvoltages or high inrush currents in the transformers.
– Can I use it for Breaker controlling?
– Basically, that’s what it does it controls the breaker to close or open at a certain point on the current or voltage waveform.


– What is the main purpose of reactors in the Power grid?

– What is the purpose of node VT Inside GIS, It’s 500kV?
– In 400kV or above voltage in line bay PT is also used. So this node PT is considered as line PT

– Maybe he’s asking what is the function of Node VT in SLD installed.
– I believe this PT is used for high metering and protection purposes at 500kV. Yes function of node VT in 500 kV GIS. Protection and metering at line side income. please see also of another VT in here At each bay Line and ATR or is considered for differential protection?
– try to find the secondary wire
– I think this is right: Synch + OV Protection in EHV system As a voltage Synchron check

– How to calculate 1ph & 3ph pickup for T60 relay
– Better refer to T60 Manual. The formula was given to calculate 1ph and 3 ph pickup. Check GE website


– What is the difference between Earthing transformer and NGR?
– Earthing transformer is used to provide grounding to the ungrounded electrical system or delta-connected system.
Whereas NGR is a grounding system, which is used to limit Earth fault current at a certain value.
– Where it is used widely?
– It is used for Generators, motors. This means wherever rotating machines are there we can use NGR to limit the earth fault current for preventing stator core to get damaged.
– NGR is a neutral grounding reactor. It is used to cancel the capacitive current during fault. It’s effective in single-phase fault when a fault occurs on one phase and capacitive current flows from normal phases. NRG causes reactive to neutralize the capacitive Current from healthy phases.

– Can anyone let me know how to monitor the I/O IN CFC online mode the actual values in CFC?
– Siemens relay
– which logic do you want to monitor?
– Any logic I want to monitor the actual IO values
– Same as in MICOM
– want to see the values in SIEMENS CFC logic
– Watch ON in Siemens software is not activated
– Resistor and reactor are both different components, the reactor is basically used on long TX lines where single-phase tripping is allowed.
– For controlling fault current of very low magnitude, a resistor should be chosen. However, where you need to limit the fault current of the magnitude of thousands of amps, you must choose a quality power reactor.
– NGR is never a Neutral Grounding Reactor.
It is always a Neutral Grounding Resistor (NGR). NGR is installed to a) limit the earth fault current below the full load current of transformer/ Generator to protect its lamination
b). This earth fault current must be greater than the capacitive current in the system (generated through the Bus-ducts, cables ) so that Arcing fault doesn’t take place across the NGR.
– Resistance and Reactor are resistors.

– In my company has a 14.24MW generator. Generator rotor resistance is changing continuously from 20 to 60 Kohm. What would be the reason behind it?
– Because of this rotor earth fault stage 1 operated because the setting is about 25kohm
– We also measure the current in earthing cable which is connected to the rotor shaft with slipring
– Temperature also changing?
– Not measured
– Resistance related to isolation, isolation related to temperature


– I want to know how to configure AR Block in P841. I have assigned one output contact and it is continuously high.
– If you are assigning AR block output contact with AR block DDB then it will remain high as long as the AR func is enabled, Use your conditions in the OR gate for AR block output contact. Not the DDB
– The output is continuously high either the function is off or on!
– Yep I remember. It will remain high. As its, the DDB used for other purposes during AR function
– Use your blocking conditions in OR gate for Output contact, not this DDB
– Anyone can share the procedure of the bump test motor.

– In a one and a half breaker scheme, the current magnitude from Q1 CB is different from Q3 CB, Can anyone explain this reason? The line is terminating between Q1 and Q3 CB. Also, there is a neutral current of 40A flowing from these CBS
– alarm is on both governors
– You may be done to check Fuel Management of that Turbine
– That looks like using PID & Close loop control system
A governor is a system that is used to maintain the mean speed of an engine, within certain limits, under fluctuating load conditions. It does this by regulating and controlling the amount of fuel supplied to the engine. The governor hence limits the speed of the engine when it is running at the no-load condition, i.e it governs the idle speed, and ensures that the engine speed does not exceed the maximum value as specified by the manufacturers.

– All marine vessels need a speed control system to control and govern the speed of the propulsion plant being used onboard, as there can be a large number of variations that arise on engine load, which may damage the engine and cause loss of life and equipment. The variations in the load on the engine may arise due to several factors such as rough seas, rolling and pitching of the vessel, compromised ship structure, changes in weight of the ship among others. what could be the reason for fuel management?
– And usually for power generation (coupling to generator) also considering the internal turbine/engine/generator/auxiliary condition. All speed control systems
almost use logic gate Proportional Integral Derivative.
– Safety and performance reasons.
– An increase in the load decreases engine speed. In this case, the flyweights move inwards, and that the governor spindle moves downward under the action of the force of the speeder spring. This movement lowers the pilot control valve which directs oil to the underside of the power piston.
As the hydraulic pressure on the piston overcomes the spring force acting on it, the piston moves upward and the fuel supply to the system engine is increased. hence increasing its speed. Once the RPM of the engine increases, the control valve rises back to its initial position that blocks the delivery of hydraulic fluid to the power piston.
On the other hand, as the load on the engine is decreased and its speed increases, the outward movement of the flyweights under the action of the additional centrifugal force causes subsequent upward movement of the spindle and hence the pilot control valve rises as well. This opens the port such that the hydraulic oil in the system flows to the oil sump from under the power piston through a drainage passage. The power piston then moves downwards under the action of the spring force and reduced hydraulic pressure and hence reducing the amount of fuel supplied to the engine is decreased. This reduces the engine speed and consequently, the forces on the flyweights are balanced once again. When operating generator synchronized, speed control merged with load sharing control system.
-Internal and external parameters are being calculation to the desire of speed of the engine/turbine.
– An Electronic governor provides engine speed adjustment from no-load condition to full load. It consists of a Controller, an Electro-Magnetic Pickup (MPU), and an actuator (ACT) to carry out the necessary speed control and regulation. The MPU is a micro-generator and has a magnetic field. It consists of a permanent magnet with an external coil winding. As shown in the diagram, the MPU is installed above the flywheel teeth, and depending upon its distance from the gear teeth or slot, the magnetic field of the MPU varies from a maximum to minimum respectively.
Due to the constantly changing internal magnetic field, an AC voltage and frequency are generated in the outer conducting coil. This AC voltage follows the speed of the flywheel. This is the most important aspect of the electronic control system as the governor controller converts the obtained frequency into a DC voltage signal. It then compares this with a set voltage. The results are calculated by a PID control (Proportional-integral-differential) and finally, the output reaches the actuator which implements the required corrections on the fuel supply to the engine.

– we have 2 generators running in parallel. Parallel operating should be using load-sharing control mode or speed droop control mode to desire speed control of the engine.
– Yes
– Anyway, What are the model of both turbines?
– You will see at the logic control real-time/configuration software. That mentions dead band value. Then that will answer your question.
– have you manual of this 505 governor?
– Almost all types of governors are fitted with a flyweight assembly. Two or Four flyweights are mounted on a rotating ball head that is driven directly by the engine shaft, using a gear drive assembly. The rotation of the ball heads creates a centrifugal force that acts on the flyweights of the assembly and causes them to move outward, away from their axis of rotation. As the speed of rotation is increased and the degree of outward movement of the flyweights also increases, and vice versa, and hence the movement of the flyweights depends on the engine speed.
A spring is installed to counteract the centrifugal force generated on the flyweights and force them towards their initial position. This spring is known as the speeder spring. The position of the flyweights and their outward movement is transmitted to a spindle (this may be done through a collar), which is free to move in a reciprocating fashion. The movement of this spindle, which forms the control sleeve, actuates a linkage to the fuel pump control and ultimately controls the amount of fuel injected.
– Under normal operational circumstances, i.e. constant speed and loads, the control sleeve remains stationary as the force on the flyweights is balanced by the counteracting force exerted by the speeder spring.
As the load on the engine is increased, the speed of the engine reduces and the control sleeve moves downward, as the force exerted on it by the speeder spring overcomes the force exerted by the flyweights.
The downward movement of the sleeve is linked to the fuel control racks such that there is an increase the fuel delivery and thus the power generated by the engine. The force on the flyweights increases with the engine RPM and once again the system comes back to equilibrium.
As the load on the engine is decreased, its speed increases. The flyweights move outward and in turn, the control sleeve moves up as the centrifugal force overcomes the speeder spring force. The movement of the sleeve actuates the fuel pump, fuel delivery is lowered, thus the speed of the engine is reduced and the system comes into equilibrium.

– how to know the wave of the current and voltage whether it was short on an insulator or due to the lightning strike?
– SF6 is good? Contact Resistance of CB checked during commissioning?
– I think CB operates at the right time.
– I think is not about a simultaneous issue, but probably a contact point issue. This is a disturbance record from a relay right?
– How can you say it is a lightning strike?
– We check it by climbing on the tower located from the Fault Locator relay.
– What is the full form STUB?
– Stub is the noun itself. No full form
– When the isolator is open, keeping CBS closed in one and a half, this whole arrangement is known as stub bus. The stub is in one and a half breaker scheme

– Micom p841 auto recloser does not save disturbance record. Can anyone state what could be the reason?
– You tried to extract from disturbance records Or Check whether the fault trigger is triggered by all BI & BO?
– When I try to extract from the relay, it shows no disturbance record found
– That means, please check your PSL file
– Nothing triggered
– Change duration, trigger position. Input 1 trigger, change to L/H
– I have the p443 relay installed and its DR is working fine and configured as shown below. Likewise, change all digital inputs as per your requirement, Then check your PSL file.
– Both P441 and P841 PSL, how fault trigger input assigned?

– Relay is switching off when connecting with the SELC662 cable. Any idea on this issue?
– The main reason that can cause switching off of an IED upon touching it is normally related to the power supply card. Can you check if there is not loose contact with the power supply?
– Rear connection is fine

– How to reset lockout alarm in auto recloser relay using FnKey?
– LEDs get reset through FnKey configuration but not lockout. I have to insert a password for resetting it.
– Check your binary inputs. Whether all tripping and lockout relays are reset
– It gets resettled after the password but I want to bypass the password and reset the lockout through the push button or FnKey
– Assign a binary input (either FNkey or PB) to relay. According to connect in PSL. Could you please check Lockout reset instead of Rst CB1 lockout and Rst CB2 lockout?
– You can try to clear through supervision or From view records, reset indication .this will clear everything

I just want to send a goose signal which block I should use for any user-defined signal in pcm600 2.10. What do u mean by block?
– Simply add the signal with OR gate in the input of Goose block
– Which block is used for goose send?
– You can use all these depending on your input type
– Is your input is the double point?
– The goose block in the Tx relay should be the same in the Rx relay for the 670 series
-Single point single
– I have 615 series

– In 30 kV switchgear if I put the incoming circuit breaker open and in service position I read voltage (700 V) in the relay. Is it new or it has been existing? Just to know whether this has just come up all of a sudden?
– I’m thinking that you may check the ratio set in a relay or if VTs are located on the cable side check whether no back feed, otherwise check whether there is a CB pole that is not opening wholly.
– It is a new MV switchgear and after tests, we tried to put it in service but when we put the incoming CB in test position we read voltage in the protection despite the CB being open.
– VT is located before the Breaker towards the incoming Cable, then check Relay power Data & compare it with SLD CT/VT data.
– There is no VT in the cable the VT is in the bus bare

– In measured is the earth fault current measured by the earth fault current coil of the relay? In derived is the earth fault current derived in relay by summation of Irph+ Iyph+Ibph currents?
– Sensitive protection will be used if the desired protection settings are very low for earth fault eg 0.001 x In.especially where the system is NGR earthed
– Vn derived is open delta voltage derived by relay during summation of Vr+Vy+Vb voltage. this is done when the 4th coil is not available in the relay. the summation is the vector summation
– This is a Neutral Displacement Relay.
– Yes, CBCT is used as sensitive protection (while earth fault current is very low).
– This is the Rated Operating Sequence (Duty Cycle) of the circuit breaker. This denotes the sequence of opening and closing operations which the circuit breaker can perform under specified conditions. The operating sequence is as follows: O-t-CO-T-CO
– since CB is already charged it will take t= 0.3 s to close but next reclose order CB has to recharge its operating mechanism and it will take T= 3 min to recharge its spring or hydraulic system and then be able to reclose. And 0.3 s is required for Arc Quenching medium such as oil, SF6, etc to regain its properties after tripping of the CB.
– What is the consideration to choose the reclaim time for CB reclosure by 3 min?
– Maybe Mechanical charging movement to avoid failure in the system when fail to reclose at 1st order. While 3 minutes is enough to decide what you have to do.
– In the case of 220kv Substation, when both lines are charged, then why bus coupler is closed?
– Ring Bus System (Loop). Is more dependable?
– Voltage collision may happen when the bus coupler is closed. You have to use Synchron check relay to close the bus couple breaker during both of buses is energizing
– By the use of only a syn check relay, the problem will be solved.
-What is the problem?
– Sequence, interlock, protection, synchronizer.
– yes I agree. It concerns mechanical charging i.e spring charge and also its insulation media, But isn’t 3 min is too long?


– I am trying to trace a fault on the Transformer that trips on differential protection. I conducted an IR test, it shows okay. I need advice
– Check the CT. CT Polarity & CT ratio should be the same. Please check the CT connection.
– No, sometimes when a problem is at 1st order, you need to check all anatomy and the condition while that’s 3 min.


– As a thumb rule -Alternatively, the set differential relay shall have an offset of 20 per event of transformer full load current. This is just a thumb rule. U need to use ur judgment
– As the Last option, can u please carry out a stability check for through fault current condition?
– These are the three options available to verify differential relays. The most event is CT has saturated.
– Yes, one CT gets saturated due to through fault current in low impedance differential relays.
– Are u commissioning a new transformer (first charging), or is it a transformer that is already in service?
– It ready for service
– there is induction near the primary CT but, we are trying to isolate the area
– I have found the cause of tripping. It’s LV side VT
– What Vt is causing to trip?
– There is a breakdown of insulation between the HV side of the VT to ground

– What is the process of relay setting
– At first, you have to download the manual instruction. Then read it. And then you do copy the section of the setting & configure it in your own format of Work Instruction.
After that is done, you will get the answer.
– We carry out an Insulation resistance test on each terminal equipment and finally found that the IR of VT is >10 kilo-ohms. We try to restore the Transformer but it is still tripping on differential protection after 3seconds
– It’s 7.5 MVA 132/33kV Transformer, CTR: pri = 100/1A sec=100/1A
– VT has primary terminal A-N. try to remove N which is connected to the body of the VT, and try the IR test. Secondary terminal a-n. Remove n from the earth and perform the following IR test.

After all, the connection is installed properly, comprehensive CT needs to check, and or inject the current test for the relay.
And also Transformer Ratio check.
-3 seconds is a lot of probability, I guess it was suspected since knee CT/saturated or relay accurate has been out of spec. Except for cable connection.
– 3 seconds means 3000 mili seconds. This is too much.



– We have a problem with our plant. the design is based on 30MW for each power gen steam turbine and 4MW from the grid all protection and study state. know we bring 30MW from grid and 15MW for each TG we face à lot of problem like blackout when grid disturbance. the restudy is requested? and I need your advice, please
– There is a problem with relay coordination. you need to get your relay settings reviewed.
– Is ur plant getting islanded for grid disturbances?
– Yes
– Speed control check also
– Load share I mean Or speed droop?
– If ur plant gets islanded and TG’s are detecting the islanding. then TG sets should survive. since u are importing 30MW from the grid. please check the balance load on TG after islanding also
– What is the voltage level When I Will be on-site I Will share it With u SLD?
– 60kv
– Island mode means autonom Without external source 60 kv
– What is the EDG rating (MW rating) and the other source details which u intend to run in parallel while carrying out EDG testing. what is the short circuit rating of a 6.6KV bus? how much time u intend to run in parallel. as we understand EDG is generally used for a black start may not continuously be in the circuit.
– Putting a reactor will increase the problem as it will be difficult for voltage control. That reason makes it interesting.
– Nothing related between Busbar rating with short circuit except failure in insulation, its mean busbar failure
– Maybe reactor installation initiated during EDG Chosphi gone to capacitive area. That problem in load share control/speed droop.

– Does the Overcurrent Highset setting for the feeder depends on the Transformer capacity in the substation?
– Suppose bus fault current 12 KA, and no of connected 3, den 4ka per tr, 400O o/ c high set. Instantaneous
– You are very correct to preserve the transformer life span
– we have 132/33 kV and 220/33 kV substations with 33 kV Feeders…one of my friends told me Overcurrent Highset depends on Transformer capacity.
– how to decide on the highest pls tell me?
– The sum of all the feeder’s load must be equal to your transformer LV capacity. it depends on the load on each feeder. See bus fault current first u HV 2 calculate For both the cases then divided it by no. Of tr.
– Make it ur hv o/c high set
– Tr mva/ tr percentage impedance. Highest fault mva for ur transformer
– We also face difficulty with the password of this relay. YouTube videos did not help.

How can we reduce the tripping of the transformer due to inrush current?
– Transformer 10MVA,66/11KV
HV side CT ratio 125/1A
LV side CT ratio 800/1 A
Relay Micom P642
– Settings of harmonic
– If I’m not wrong, in modern transformers because of core material, the Inrush current harmonics are sometimes less than 20% of the fundamental frequency component due to which differential relay operates. So, we can keep the setting at 15%. For second harmonics we can keep this at 15%

– anyone knows passwords to change settings?
– 000000

– please tell me what is the general delay time used for Overcurrent or Earth Fault Highset protection?

– hi, anyone has a ZIV RELAY course about programming its logical control, and interlocks? I need to understand completely but is not possible only to use the manual brand, located on their website.

-Anyone faces this problem while adding a relay to the IEC station in sip5?
– If anyone has Sepam relay thermal calculation sheet please share it with me.
– if CT gets saturated .what is the solution after CT gets saturated. We want to replace CT or any other solution
– CT secondary current flow to the secondary winding
– How are confirming that CT got saturated?
– Sir for knowledge purposes if CT gets saturated in future
If we observe these types of problems in the future, how can we overcome these types of problems?
– Which purpose bypass resistor is used in Modbus communication?
– What is the burden of your CTs?
– Saturation is purely a magnetic property issue. So there is no alternative solution to do corrections in the circuit rather than core replacement.
– You need not replace your CT there are ways to demagnetize the ct
– Can you explain in detail the theory of core saturation in ct
– How can we demagnetize the CT? We had followed demagnetization in transformer ..whenever we got erroneous values while testing dc winding resistance
– The easiest way to demagnetize a CT is to apply the test current at a level that approaches its excitation ‘knee’, then slowly decrease the input current to zero. This can be done with secondary excitation or primary current injection.
– I think some testers offer this option, Like omricon ct analyzer
– Can you explain why you need to replace your ct?
– What is the solution to these types of problem
– Anyone has a method Statement for how to create logic for Sepam Relay using SFT2841

our ETAP Video training course: https://protectionrelay.com/etap-training/


– we are getting the above error when communicating with RET650. Please tell us what could be the problem?
– Rollback package software needs to be updated using the Update manager of PCM600
– I could not find the Rollback package software. It’s in update manager, select relevant relay IED connectivity package. In that package, there is one rollup package that’s automatically installed.

– 33 kV ABB circuit breaker Trip coil and close coil have a PCB connected to them. Pls, tell me what is the use of that PCB?
– I think PCB is meant for capacitive tripping device CTD. CTD separate unit is present sir
– black color portion in the above image
– Check the drawing, While Exporting, Icd from Abb relay -PCM 600 the ICD file in Browser, showing TEMPLATE
– In scheme ..no drawing of PCB…the electronic ckt PCB meant for coil protection purpose / to safeguard coil.
As the coil is designed for a short time not for continuous.
– what kind of protection is used, sir?
– what are the steps to be followed when synchronizing a new 220 kV Transmission Line to an existing 220 kV Bus?
– Anyone has a WINCC script for the addition of tags and displays on the HMI screen.
– This is a 220 kV ABB make LTB245E1 type circuit breaker. Please tell what is the use of S7-A circled in the above figure
– Did you look up S7 in legends?
– I think you could find working philosophy in the breaker manual
– It is mentioned Blocking switch but the function of it is not mentioned anywhere?
– For emf voltage discharge
– They are opposite
– I think they are for an anti-pumping system, isn’t it?
– Anti-pumping will come only in the Closing path. This is an AC motor (Spring charge) circuit I think.
– Spring charge also needs to be cut off, so I thought the Motor Cut off will be via Q1 contacts in series. S7 contact is, like AN said, for discharging stored EM energy in the motor winding.

– Anyone knows how to download cid file from Sepam relays and how to do goose configuration?
– Hello guys, please how do I program the LED of ABB REF615. My main challenge is to change the parameter setting from false to true.

– Hello colleagues, I have a question, in case there is a fault on the 33kv or 11 kV side is there any impact on 132kv side protection equipment? Mean did the protection will sense the fault?
– overcurrent relays on 33kv from TP, maybe send a trigger From application configuration
– Yes 132 side will sense the downstream faults but it will work as backup protection for downstream protection
– Dear all, in abb REM 615 RELAY, HOW WE CHANGE NO OF HOT START FROM 1 TO 2, WHICH PARAMETERS OF STPPMSU HAVE TO CHANG?

– How to calculate phase sequence angle in cable

– Reinstall the SQL server 2014
– Please can anyone help me with the primary impedance R1 + jx1/ km and R0 +jx0/km value of a Bear conductor ASCAR 250mm² with a diameter of 23.45mm
– Hello guys! Anyone working with GE Multilin D30? I have a relay that seems to be unconfigured on distance. Backup OC and EF are enabled but seems no contact is assigned for tripping though it shows indication during testing. 50/51, 50N/51N


– Power Swing Block is used and activated in Distance Relay to block its operation in case of Swing period disturbance
– It’s not about definition. I want ABC concerning enervista.
– Emanuel starts reading the D30 manual.
– What should be OLTC AVR relay PT Lower and raise voltage settings.

– Secure Premium 300 energy meter is showing like this in the parameters..please tell me what is its means?
– CT low means very fewer amps detected by ct
– What is the meaning of VT polarity?
-VT polarity means instant of increasing live terminal to positive is the same instant of increasing live terminal in secondary to positive in this case polarity is good and this secondary terminal is x1 and x2 is grounded. But if vice versa x2 become life and x1 is grounded For VT polarity Test the same ways of CT polarity Test
– Is it affect relay operation
– Of course, if this relay is Directional or Distance or Reverse power Relays and also if powering measuring device as kwh meter

– What do we have to check if the transformer tripped in?
– DGA, Insulation, Ratio, Magnetic balance and Winding Resistance
– Hi guys, do you know where I could find a bibliography for protection for photovoltaic systems connected on the grid? I need to know a siemens V4 relay can work as a time source for Micom relays
– Magnetising current, Short circuit impedance tests of the transformer are also important to check for any deformation of windings. Turns ratio test and DC resistance test of winding.
– SFRA test is also one of the diagnostic tests but it’s not done in most the companies
– Do you mean the bandwidth (this determine when the tap shift up/down)?
– Yes


– Please tell the ‘distance’ below which ‘Line Differential Relay’ should be used for protection of 220 kV or 132 kV Transmission line?
– Line differential use mostly for underground cable not over a headline for e.g RED670 Abb line differential and OHL REL670 will be used
-In addition, RED670 can protect distance too
– sir, why is it that Differential is used for cable and not a line?
– Because with differential you are normally using fiber Optic, laying parallel with feeder. It is common to use line differential for underground cable and distance relays for overhead feeders
– Cant we have line diff if we have OPGW with the line?
– As much I know there is no distance length specified for Line differential relays. Line differential protection is also being used in overhead lines especially short lines and for high voltage lines that have redundant protection such as 400 kv
– Yes I think it is possible, the line can be used with opgw too, but I never face that actually in our system

– anyone has 2 phase transmission line with ‘line Differential protection’?
Line differential protection is being used for very short lines say less than 1 km. We are using it on 550 meters 220kv line.
– will anyone please the type of curve used by Indian railways for Overcurrent protection of the traction feeders?
– Very inverse characteristics
– why is it used and not Normal Inverse or Extremely Inverse?
– Main protection is overcurrent protection for railways. they adopt very inversely in the downstream network. so for relay coordination, we use the same curve

– Anyone knows how to configure goose signal at abb PCM software.pls share documents if u have

– Hi everyone I am facing this problem for ABB615. Whenever I gave the read from IED that time showed this error.. – — How can I solve those errors and read relay files from the relay?

-Anyone pls send me the ABB REF615 Relay version 5.0.13 relay connectivity package
– Use and update manager or go to their website
– The updated manager has no option for searching
– Kindly update the license by right click on the relay and using the license updation tool.
– Please, can anyone help. CB always trips back after single-phase Auto reclose. The PD is the 60s
– Kindly make it clear?
– After the relay give AR command to the CB it will close and trip back immediately and after that, the CB will trip other phases on PD. I’m doing commissioning the line, not charge
– Here shows option 5.0.1. But I need 5.0.13. how can I download the package
– Did you check for any trip signal presented to the single-pole trip relays?
– Yes. The feedback is on the relay to test set.
– Breaker should be in a close position for AR
– In the open condition, AR should block
– It was in a close position and I trip the CB with the relay on 21Z1 Ph-G fault. Then CB open and the relay send a reclose command

– Did you check the outputs which are getting high on single-phase trips?
– I have checked it very well because the test kit shows the duration of the trip. About 0.038s
– No other outputs are getting high?
– Yes
– Disable TOR function and then check
– TOR?
– Trip on reclose function which is there in every numerical relay
– Disable this function and then check the auto reclose
– Correct CB state must be provided for the AR relay/21 for AR to work. As I understand AR will work if the CB is open, not when it is closed, along with other interlock conditions.
– The problem is that the CB is reclosing and tripping back immediately, Which means some trip signal is tripping it. it’s not the ar logic which is at fault.
– You need to remove the particular phase’s trip input to the single-phase trip relay and then try a reclosing function test.
– If it works, you are going to find out which relay keeps issuing the trip positive to the 1 phase trip relay.
– If you reclose the CB from the AR function of the relay, the CB close and remains. If there is a high output it should not stay
– That’s the logic.
– The problem happens only when I trip the CB from Close to open and back to close?
– You can check also a timer on CB for pole discrepancy. sometimes you need to delay more for reclosing test.
– That s a basic check. make sure that the dead time is not more than the reclaim time & PD time. Even though as per your description it’s not what trips the CB on reclosing.
– Adjust the timer on CB after that reclose successfully signal to come.
– If it’s a new CB, after conducting the CB closing timing test, set the deadtime above the closing time of CB too.
– it’s a new CB
– Normally, the closing time is 100msec and the dead time is set as 1sec. Remove other 2 phases trip relays and then apply single-phase fault with one trip relay. Check if AR works
– Keep one trip relay in circuit with other trip relays drawn out
– Suppose you apply Red phase fault, keep the red phase trip relay in the circuit
– If others are there it will trip the CB on 3Ph
– That’s what we are doing
– you apply Red phase to the earth fault using the testing kit and keep Red phase trip relay in the circuit
– Have you checked that Breaker is closing on Single phase fault AR and then tripping? If others are active the relay will show TrpA, TrpB, and TrpC
– it’s closing on ar, but again tripping on single-phase trip relay, And later due to PD timer, remaining phases trip too
– You said that it’s again tripping on the Trip relay. Check the Auxiliary contact 52A of the circuit breaker which is in series with the trip coil. This contact can malfunction. This contact is meant to break the DC circuit of the Trip relay
– If the trip relay remains in the energized state it can again trip the breaker

– Electric duct heater 240 volts, 3500 w what are meggar valves
– This would not lead to a successful Autorecloser.
– If the CB aux switch s faulty and a trip signal persists, the TC will get burned out.
– Yes, the trip coil can burn
– But I don’t find any other reason. I think they need to check trip coil resistance too,
– As the coil has not burned, it’s not the CB aux switch that s causing the issue.
– Can we extract fault waveform, I mean one more thing needs to be checked: the testing kit needs to stop injecting fault after the first trip, is it being ensured.
– Correct! And if the kit feedback point of the trip is correct.
– Yes I confirmed it. It shows 0.038s
– If you remove feedback the test kit continues
– Check the Programming logic of the relay, maybe Autoreclose digital output signal may have been connected to the trip output contact of Relay
– Check the PSL or configuration of the Distance relay. I have only a three-phase supply without neutral, in my system newly 1 phase loads are being added. how can I provide neutral wire to these loads, without implementing any Trafo (Delta-Wye)?

– Hi guys. How Can I reset these ledes?
-Reset, then reset indication LEDs, Check the BB switch if it’s on or off.
– I did it but it doesn’t work.
– Where can I find BB switch?
– On the same panel
– This is the Sepam Relay s configuration,

– Why we are using () In not gate function. is it mandatory to use the set brackets?
– Not Required
– If u Want to Invert an Input, U Can use it NOT directly. So set brackets Were not important, right?
