This paper proposes an algorithm for fault detection, faulted phase and winding identification of a three-winding power transformer based on the induced voltages in the electrical power system. The ratio of the induced voltages of the primary-secondary, primary-tertiary and secondary-tertiary windings is the same as the corresponding turns ratio during(More)
Due to safety concerns and the risks associated with an islanded system, current legislation has prohibited the islanded operation of distributed generation. However, operation of a temporary island may be a useful support to the main supply. In particular, in the event of an upstream supply outage, the temporary islanding operation of distributed generator(More)
This paper describes a current differential relay for transformer protection that operates in conjunction with a core saturation detection-based blocking algorithm. The differential current for the magnetic inrush or over-excitation has a point of inflection at the start and end of each saturation period of the transformer core. At these instants,(More)
– To avoid undesirable disconnection of healthy wind generators (WGs) or a wind power plant, a WG protection relay should discriminate among faults, so that it can operate instantaneously for WG, connected feeder or connection bus faults, it can operate after a delay for inter-tie or grid faults, and it can avoid operating for parallel WG or adjacent feeder(More)
SUMMARY The primary plant and instrument transformers used in transmission substations generally remain in-service for many decades, typically 40 – 70 years, and are renewed only when physically or mechanically life-expired. However, the secondary systems, which include protection and control, are changed significantly more frequently. The current(More)
A protection relay for a wind turbine generator (WTG) based on positive- and negative-sequence fault components is proposed in the paper. The relay uses the magnitude of the positive-sequence component in the fault current to detect a fault on a parallel WTG, connected to the same power collection feeder, or a fault on an adjacent feeder; but for these(More)
