Guide for Protective Relay Applications to Transmission Lines
|Publication Date:||5 October 2015|
Concepts of transmission line protection are discussed in this guide. Applications of these concepts to various system configurations and line termination arrangements are presented. Many important issues, such as coordination of settings, operating times, characteristics of relays, impact of mutual coupling of lines on the protection systems, automatic reclosing, and use of communication channels, are examined. Special protection systems, multi-terminal lines, and single-phase tripping and reclosing are also included. The impact that system parameters and system performance have on the selection of relays and relay schemes is discussed as well.
The purpose of this guide is to provide protection engineers with information that helps them to properly apply relays and other devices to protect three-phase high-voltage transmission lines.
