IEEE PC37.91 DRAFT
Draft Guide for Protecting Power Transformers
|Publication Date:||1 September 2020|
The scope of this guide includes general philosophy, practical applications, and economic considerations involved in power transformer protection.
Emphasis is placed on practical applications. General philosophy and economic considerations in protecting transformers are reviewed. Types of faults in transformers are described. Technical problems with the protection systems, including the behavior of current transformers (CTs) during system faults, are discussed. Associated problems, such as fault clearing and reenergization, are discussed as well.
The purpose of this guide is to provide protection engineers with information to assist in properly applying relays and other devices to protect transformers used in transmission and distribution systems.
