  1. 1. 1 Protective Device Coordination Hector J. Rivera, Member, IEE they must be very reliable. Abstract-- Power Protection is one of the most important fields In much the same way as the early computers of the in Power Electrical Engineering. Through time many software’s 1950s and 1960s were a precursor to the computational has been created to analyze electrical designs. Our project capabilities of today’s computers. Specialized hardwire consist of prepare a user guide easy to understand of how to use systems were developed for locally monitoring the operation an existing power protection analysis program calling ETAP. This user guide must include how to create a one-line diagram, of power plants and for remotely monitoring and controlling how to configure power system devises, and an explanation of the switches in transmission substation. The Remote Terminal right way to perform a short and fault analysis. Finally, we Units of these early monitoring systems were implemented prepare an advance user guide with detailed explanations of with relay logic, while the master station consisted primarily special features and technical concept of ETAP program. Also, of large banks of annunciator panels with red and green light as a requirement of our project, we analyzed a case study of indication the state of the points being monitored with flashing power system and perform the protective device coordination of it. light indication a change in state or an alarm condition. The impact of computers has nowhere been more Index Terms—ETAP, fault analysis, protection devices, revolutionary than in electrical engineering. The design, protective device coordination. analysis and operation of electrical and electronic systems has become completely dominated by computers, a transformation I. INTRODUCTION that has been motivated by the natural ease of interface between computers and electrical systems, and the promise of E lectricity has been a subject of scientific interest since at least the early 17th century. Probably the first electrical engineer was William Gilbert who designed the versorium: a spectacular improvements in speed and efficiency. Our project consists of develop a protective device device that detected the presence of statically charged objects. coordination using a graphical software program to add He was also the first to draw a clear distinction between features and flexibility in the area of electrical system magnetism and static electricity and is credited with protection. Also, this graphical software program it’s going to establishing the term electricity. However it was not until the be using for all kind of element that used these. We will select 19th century that research into the subject started to intensify. the software program, analyze all types of element protection Notable developments in this century include the work of that are utilizing in electrical systems, and simulate the Georg Ohm, who in 1827 quantified the relationship between program using various management studies. the electric current and potential difference in a conductor, Michael Faraday, the discoverer of electromagnetic induction II. TOPICS COVERED in 1831, and James Clerk Maxwell, who in 1873 published a Trough this capstone project we covered a lot of electrical unified theory of electricity and magnetism in his treatise on power engineering topics. Some of these are summarized Electricity and Magnetism. They are the fathers of electrical below. engineering and the electric systems. Today, power system protection is that part of electrical A. Relay Hardware power engineering that deals with protecting the electrical The relay hardware for electronic relays consists of both power system from faults by isolating the faulted part from the analog and digital devices. The input signals are analog and rest of the network. require, at very minimum, a conversion to digital form. Any electric power system involves a large amount of Therefore, the relays design is often a mixture of analog auxiliary equipment for the protection of generators, electronic devices and digital hardware. The relays may also transformers, and the transmission lines. Circuit breakers are contain transformers or other components that are also found employed to protect all elements of a power system from short in electromagnetic and electromechanical protective devices. circuits and overloads, and for normal switching operations. Induction relays are available in many variations to provide The principle of a protection scheme is to keep the power accurate pickup and time-current responses for a wide range of system stable by isolating only the components that are under simple or complex system conditions. Induction relays are fault, even as leaving as much of the network as possible still basically induction motors. The moving element, or rotor, is in operation. Thus, protection schemes must apply a very usually a metal disk, although it sometimes may be a metal pragmatic and pessimistic approach to clearing system faults. cylinder or cup. Electronic relays require less power to operate For this reason, the technology and philosophies utilized in than their mechanical equivalents, producing a smaller load protection schemes are often old and well-established because burden on the CT’s and PT’s that supply them. The most frequently used relay is the over current relay, combining both instantaneous and inverse-time tripping functions.

Fuses are designed for Fig.1 shows the original oneline diagram given to us many different applications and with variety of characteristics with the objective of perform the protective device to meet the requirements both routine and special situations. coordination. It does not include any protective device. Fuses have different curves to realize these requirements. The minimum melting curve is an average melting time measured in low voltage test where arcing does not occur. Other curve is total clearing curve should be used in coordinating against the minimum melting characteristics of a larger fuse, located toward the power source. Distribution fuses links are given voltage ratings of 7.2, 14.4, and 17 KV nominal, or 7.8, 15, and 18 KV maximum for use in open-link cutouts. C. ETAP Program ETAP seamlessly integrates the analysis of power control circuits within one electrical analysis program. The control system diagram simulates the sequence of the operation control devices such as solenoids, relays, controlled contacts multi-sequence contacts and actuators including inrush conditions.

Scope Develop a short circuit study for Power Transformers and relay settings for a waste water treatment plant and the protective devices associated. The Bayamón Waste Water Treatment Plant has seven large power transformers with their respective protective devices (power fuses or protective relaying) in service. The intention of this short circuit study is to verify the appropriated protective device coordination and recommended the appropriated changes if any. For this plant we will cover the relay coordination and settings for the protective device associated. The short circuit current available at Bayamón Waste Water Treatment Plant, with 38 kV connection tap, is submitted by Puerto Rico Electric Authority (PREPA). Three phase short circuit current is 20,000 A and 11,547 A Fig. 2. Fault Simulation at Load 1 of BWWTP for phase to ground. The ETAP Power Simulation computer program, version 5.5 from Operation Technology, Inc was used for all the short circuit studies and simulations.
