Generally, transient overreach may be caused by: overestimation of the current (the magnitude of the current as measured is larger than its actual value, and consequently, the fault appears closer than it is actually located), underestimation of the voltage (the magnitude of the voltage as measured is lower than its actual value) combination of the above Zone 1 and CVT TransientsPowerPoint Presentation: Distance Element Fundamentals XL XC R Z1 End ZonePowerPoint Presentation: Impedance locus may pass below the origin of the Z-plane - this would call for a time delay to obtain stabilityCVT Transient Overreach Solutions: apply delay (fixed or adaptable) reduce the reach adaptive techniques and better filtering algorithms CVT Transient Overreach SolutionsCVT Transients – Adaptive Solution: Optimize signal filtering: currents - max 3% error due to the dc component voltages - max 0.6% error due to CVT transients Adaptive double-reach approach filtering alone ensures maximum transient overreach at the level of 1% (for SIRs up to 5) and 20% (for SIRs up to 30) to reduce the transient overreach even further an adaptive double-reach zone 1 has been implemented CVT Transients – Adaptive SolutionCVT Transients – Adaptive Solution: The outer zone 1: is fixed at the actual reach applies certain security delay to cope with CVT transients The inner zone 1: has its reach dynamically controlled by the voltage magnitude is instantaneous CVT Transients – Adaptive SolutionDesirable Distance Relay Attributes: Desirable Distance Relay Attributes Filters : Prefiltering of currents to remove dc decaying transients Limit maximum transient overshoot (below 2%) Prefiltering of voltages to remove low frequency transients caused by CVTs Limit transient overreach to less than 5% for an SIR of 30 Accurate and fast frequency tracking algorithm Adaptive reach control for faults at reach pointsDistance Relay Operating Times: Distance Relay Operating TimesDistance Relay Operating Times: Distance Relay Operating Times 20ms 15ms 25ms 30ms 35msDistance Relay Operating Times: Distance Relay Operating Times SLG faults LL faults 3P faultsPowerPoint Presentation: Actual maximum reach curves Relay 1 Relay 3 Relay 2 Relay 4Maximum Torque Angle: Maximum Torque Angle Angle at which mho element has maximum reach Characteristics with smaller MTA will accommodate larger amount of arc resistanceMho Characteristics: Traditional Directional angle lowered and “slammed” Directional angle “slammed” Both MHO and directional angles “slammed” (lens) Mho CharacteristicsPowerPoint Presentation: Typical load characteristic impedance +R Operate area No Operate area +X L + = LOOKING INTO LINE normally considered forward Load Trajectory Reach Load SwingsPowerPoint Presentation: Load swing “Lenticular” Characteristic Load SwingsPowerPoint Presentation: Load Encroachment Characteristic The load encroachment element responds to positive sequence voltage and current and can be used to block phase distance and phase overcurrent elements.Blinders: Blinders Blinders limit the operation of distance relays (quad or mho) to a narrow region that parallels and encompasses the protected line Applied to long transmission lines, where mho settings are large enough to pick up on maximum load or minor system swingsQuadrilateral Characteristics: Quadrilateral CharacteristicsPowerPoint Presentation: Ground Resistance (Conductor falls on ground) XL R Resultant impedance outside of the mho operating region Quadrilateral CharacteristicsPowerPoint Presentation: Mho Quadrilateral Better coverage for ground faults due to resistance added to return path Lenticular Used for phase elements with long heavily loaded lines heavily loaded Standard for phase elements JX R Distance Characteristics -

Security can be improved using “voting” schemes (i.e., 2-out-of-3), potentially at expense of dependability. Redundancy of instrument transformers, battery systems, trip coil circuits, etc. also need to be considered.PowerPoint Presentation: BUS BUS End Zone Communication Channel 1 Communication Channel 2 Loss of Channel 2 AND Channels: POTT Less Reliable DCB Less Secure OR Channels: POTT More Reliable DCB More Secure More Channel Security More Channel Dependability Redundant CommunicationsRedundant Pilot Schemes: Redundant Pilot SchemesPilot Relay Desirable Attributes: Integrated functions: weak infeed echo line pick-up (SOTF) Basic protection elements used to key the communication: distance elements fast and sensitive ground (zero and negative sequence) directional IOCs with current, voltage, and/or dual polarization Pilot Relay Desirable AttributesPilot Relay Desirable Attributes: Pre-programmed distance-based pilot schemes: Direct Under-reaching Transfer Trip (DUTT) Permissive Under-reaching Transfer Trip (PUTT) Permissive Overreaching Transfer Trip (POTT) Hybrid Permissive Overreaching Transfer Trip (HYB POTT) Blocking scheme (DCB) Unblocking scheme (DCUB) Pilot Relay Desirable AttributesSecurity for dual-breaker terminals: Security for dual-breaker terminals Breaker-and-a-half and ring bus terminals are common designs for transmission lines. Standard practice has been to: sum currents from each circuit breaker externally by paralleling the CTs use external sum as the line current for protective relays For some close-in external fault events, poor CT performance may lead to improper operation of line relays.Security for dual-breaker terminals: Security for dual-breaker terminals Accurate CTs preserve the reverse current direction under weak remote infeedSecurity for dual-breaker terminals: Security for dual-breaker terminals Saturation of CT1 may invert the line current as measured from externally summated CTsSecurity for dual-breaker terminals: Security for dual-breaker terminals Direct measurement of currents from both circuit breakers allows the use of supervisory logic to prevent distance and directional overcurrent elements from operating incorrectly due to CT errors during reverse faults. Additional benefits of direct measurement of currents: independent BF protection for each circuit breaker independent autoreclosing for each breakerSecurity for dual-breaker terminals: Security for dual-breaker terminals Supervisory logic should: not affect speed or sensitivity of protection elements correctly allow tripping during evolving external-to-internal fault conditions determine direction of current flow through each breaker independently: Both currents in FWD direction internal fault One current FWD, one current REV external fault allow tripping during all forward/internal faults block tripping during all reverse/external faults initially block tripping during evolving external-to-internal faults until second fault appears in forward direction. Block is then lifted to permit tripping.Single-pole Tripping: Single-pole Tripping Distance relay must correctly identify a SLG fault and trip only the circuit breaker pole for the faulted phase. Autoreclosing and breaker failure functions must be initiated correctly on the fault event Security must be maintained on the healthy phases during the open pole condition and any reclosing attempt.Out-of-Step Condition: Out-of-Step Condition For certain operating conditions, a severe system disturbance can cause system instability and result in loss of synchronism between different generating units on an interconnected system.Out-of-Step Relaying: Out-of-Step Relaying Out-of-step blocking relays Operate in conjunction with mho tripping relays to prevent a terminal from tripping during severe system swings & out-of-step conditions. Prevent system from separating in an indiscriminate manner. Out-of-step tripping relays Operate independently of other devices to detect out-of-step condition during the first pole slip. Initiate tripping of breakers that separate system in order to balance load with available generation on any isolated part of the system.Out-of-Step Tripping: Out-of-Step Tripping The locus must stay for some time between the outer and middle characteristics Must move and stay between the middle and inner characteristics When the inner characteristic is entered the element is ready to tripPower Swing Blocking: Power Swing Blocking Applications: Establish a blocking signal for stable power swings (Power Swing Blocking) Establish a tripping signal for unstable power swings (Out-of-Step Tripping) Responds to: Positive-sequence voltage and currentSeries-compensated lines: Series-compensated lines Benefits of series capacitors : Reduction of overall X L of long lines Improvement of stability margins Ability to adjust line load levels Loss reduction Reduction of voltage drop during severe disturbances Normally economical for line lengths > 200 milesSeries-compensated lines: Series-compensated lines SCs create unfavorable conditions for protective relays and fault locators: Overreaching of distance elements Failure of distance element to pick up on low-current faults Phase selection problems in single-pole tripping applications Large fault location errorsSeries-compensated lines Series Capacitor with MOV: Series-compensated lines Series Capacitor with MOVSeries-compensated lines : Series-compensated linesSeries-compensated lines Dynamic Reach Control: Series-compensated lines Dynamic Reach ControlSeries-compensated lines Dynamic Reach Control for External Faults: Series-compensated lines Dynamic Reach Control for External FaultsSeries-compensated lines Dynamic Reach Control for External Faults: Series-compensated lines Dynamic Reach Control for External FaultsSeries-compensated lines Dynamic Reach Control for Internal Faults: Series-compensated lines Dynamic Reach Control for Internal FaultsDistance Protection Looking Through a Transformer: Distance Protection Looking Through a Transformer Phase distance elements can be set to see beyond any 3-phase power transformer CTs & VTs may be located independently on different sides of the transformer Given distance zone is defined by VT location (not CTs) Reach setting is in sec, and must take into account location & ratios of VTs, CTs and voltage ratio of the involved power transformerTransformer Group Compensation: Transformer Group Compensation Depending on location of VTs and CTs, distance relays need to compensate for the phase shift and magnitude change caused by the power transformerSetting Rules: Setting Rules Transformer positive sequence impedance must be included in reach setting only if transformer lies between VTs and intended reach point Currents require compensation only if transformer located between CTs and intended reach point Voltages require compensation only if transformer located between VTs and intended reach point Compensation set based on transformer connection & vector group as seen from CTs/VTs toward reach pointDistance Relay Desirable Attributes: Multiple reversible distance zones Individual per-zone, per-element characteristic: Dynamic voltage memory polarization Various characteristics, including mho, quad, lenticular Individual per-zone, per-element current supervision (FD) Multi-input phase comparator: additional ground directional supervision dynamic reactance supervision Transient overreach filtering/control Phase shift & magnitude compensation for distance applications with power transformers Distance Relay Desirable AttributesDistance Relay Desirable Attributes: For improved flexibility, it is desirable to have the following parameters settable on a per zone basis: Zero-sequence compensation Mutual zero-sequence compensation Maximum torque angle Blinders Directional angle Comparator limit angles (for lenticular characteristic) Overcurrent supervision Distance Relay Desirable AttributesDistance Relay Desirable Attributes: Additional functions Overcurrent elements (phase, neutral, ground, directional, negative sequence, etc.) Breaker failure Automatic reclosing (single & three-pole) Sync check Under/over voltage elements Special functions Power swing detection Load encroachment Pilot schemes Distance Relay Desirable AttributesPowerPoint Presentation: Questions?
