– Type rs232 to USB converter drivers. Micom (Areva) P121 software version is 6.H relay don’t connect with relay
– Using Micom s1 studio and Micom s1agile
– I downloaded all data models still same error present
– Change the USB port of your laptop and try again
– Go to device manager on the laptop
– Check driver settings
– Assign as per p121 communication parameters
– Is your OS Windows 10? Then it will be working without a driver. To check whether it is working go to Device manager and see the listed Com ports.
– I downloaded the software now it’s working
– No 10
– Please share this relay terminals details.. 12 and 34 are NO/NC contacts
– 9 & 10 are current coil
– 1,2
– After coil operation. what is the status of NO contact
– 3&4 would normally be used for trip wiring as it has a trip isolator switch in series.. see the red tab on the grab handle of the relay.
– This particular model is a self-powered type. So terminals 5,6,7,8 are not used. Power is derived from CT terminals 9&10.

– Can anyone give settings for this transformer relay Areva P633?
– All that you need from this nameplate are
1. Trxm rating 20000kVA

  1. Voltage levels 66/11kV
  2. Vector group YNyno

    – sir, Premier 100, please.
    – sorry, I don’t have premier 100 series manual
    – I need a Secure Prodigy meter manual. Can anyone share, please?
    – What is the standard followed for 132 kV cable ampacity calculation?. ( Installation method above ground).

– Anyone please share the Operating time formula for Normal. Inverse 1.3 seconds curve.
– this is for the Normal Inverse 3 seconds curve I think
– In the case of 1.3 inverse curve instead of 0.1414 take-ups 0.0613 value should be used.
– 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 in order 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?
-Depend on your coordination
– Zero
– 100msec
– To allow line zone 1 to clear fault first

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

-Anyone faced this problem while adding a relay to the IEC station in sip5?
– If anyone having 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 the problem 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 having a method Statement for how to create logic for Sepam Relay using SFT2841

– 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?

– 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 meaning?
– 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 to 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 for OHL REL670 will be used
-In addition, RED670 have the ability to 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

-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 use 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 showing 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 trip 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 an output that is high 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 definitely 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?


– What is the meaning of this error code, please? p343
– This error code means that analog input module serial E2ROM Failure.
– We advise replacing analog input modules through an authorized repair center.

– Anyone knows how to trigger DR in sip 4 either online or manually?
– Open relay online and go to test then double click on test waveform, DR will be triggered.

– HMI in LabView with IEC 61850 (MMS) Communication
-It’s just a simulation or HILT (LOOP IN TESTING)?
– First I configure the SEL 751 in QuickSet software, then I use the SEL Architect software for IEC 61850 configuration, in the end, I use the RELAB OPC SERVER software to read the reports I created and the software transforms them into OPC signals and the LabView can read that data in real-time. You can also use Kepserverx to transform MMS or GOOSE data to OPC
– Value under switch on condition means in case of differential

– I have good knowledge of digsi4 but no knowledge of digsi5 software. Anyone has any guidelines to access digsi5. I need to see how the signal is configured for SAS OR GOOSING.
– Actually in 5 no need to assign any signal for IEC all are pre-configured
– In the file, there is the option of IEC structure on that, you can see

– Anybody Simulated signals from IED SCOUT?
– This block “MVGAPC1” is used for SAS in the REF615, but I don’t need it to appear on the events

– can anybody tell me the difference between short-term overcurrent trips and long-term overcurrent trips?
-What is the password of SEL 551?
-Try TAIL Or OTTER
– Sometimes the password for ftp might be FTPUSER too. If you have quickset settings, you will get the information in it

-Does anyone face time inaccuracy in OMICRON CMC256 only if trip time < 1-second?

-What are you testing?
-Phase Overcurrent.

– What are you using? Quick CMC, state sequence, or auto?

– We use a 125V DC system for our substations. The string consists of 93 NiCad cells. The charger is SENS. The only settings available on the charger are FLOAT, set at 1.37VpC 122V, and EQUALIZE, set at 1.57Vpc 138V. These values appear to be assuming the string consists of 88 cells.

– Should I just adjust the FLOAT to 130V?
-I don’t see any way to set the number of cells in the string.
-How separate furreol in canon mk2600 printer?
-Anyone worked on Micom 546 relay. Line differential relay? I am facing one problem that the tx of differential communication getting on-off frequently in back relay tx is getting
on-off, or in your mux, In HMI of relay
– Value is getting 1 and 0.
– maybe you can check in measurement 4 in display relay, same or not with tx on HMI.
– What is the password of this relay SR-489?

-The factory default passcode is zero (0)

– Also, you can try state sequence.

– just an update Was able to find in the setting where there is the number of cells for the string but was not allowed to change the value which was found to be 93.
– we Will try to contact the manufacturer to address this.

– What’s the difference between WCDM11 type relay and WCD type? Both are reverse power protection relays but can we interchange them?
– how I install DIGSI 4 in windows 8 or windows 10?
-Hi the above relay SIEMENS show the error LED and monitor SMS.

– can you help me to solve this issue? Busbar relay 7ss52?

– Actually, it falls back in monitor mode, go down there will be one option of reset. do that.

-Yes. Otherwise, nothing will show in time

-hi, could anyone shares PDF standard library “IEC 60255-6 ELECTRICAL RELAYS -PART6:MEASURING RELAYS AND PROTECTION EQUIPMENT”?

– Does anyone have a manual for this relay or how to read the settings for this relay?
– Which relay?
– Micom p444
– Once switch off auxiliary supply And switch on


– I have a question about inrush on the Transmission line:

– Is it inrush current created during energizing of under-ground transmission line? On voltage levels of 132kV and 6.5KM
– No, inrush current produces during charging of transformer.
– Anyone has Rio file for field failure and pole slip?
What is the default password of this Siemens Relay?

– 000000
