There has been a significant change in design of protective relays over the past years, due to the advancement in microprocessor and signal processing technology. Due to the advancements in digital technology and decrease in digital hardware prices numeric relays are now available and being used for power system protection. This paper describes fundamental design for a numeric relay and presents algorithms to be used for different protection schemes i.e. overcurrent protection, distance…

Modern numerical relays have many new features that were not available in electromechanical or analog designs. These new features include setting groups, programmable logic and adaptive schemes.
The design of a directional comparison protection for EHV transmission lines
This new protection has a number of advantages over conventional line protection relays and is illustrated using the results of a study on a complex power system, where the fault waveforms are distorted by high frequency transients.
Digital Protection for Power Systems
Digital protection is based on the use of computers in power line relaying. Since the late 1960s, digital devices and techniques have been applied to almost all new protection schemes. Today the
