iRTU F: The RTU with Fault Detection

Published on

Fault detection and MV switchgear automation:

Overcurrent fault detection is a key point for the MV grid control.

The ability to detect these faults allows the operator of the Control Center to isolate the affected area very quickly.

The direct measurement of the CT (Current Transformer) allows the user to know, in real time, the RMS current that flows through each line, as well as the current flowing in the neutral line. This value is compared with the threshold current and the time curves (IDTF) predefined by the user in order to determine if there is a fault state.

The use of VPIS (Voltage Presence Indicating Systems) sensors when the overcurrent is detected, allows the user to know when the primary switchgear is opened.

iRTU F family is the ideal solution for Control and Automation of existing MV Substations, allowing the detection of any kind of overcurrent that appears in their lines and reporting to the control center the kind of event that has been detected. With the overcurrent information and the voltage presence detection, the iRTU decides if there is a fault in the MV grid and whether the switchgear must be opened or not, when there is no voltage due to the opening of the HV substation feeder.

iRTU F: The RTU with Fault Detection

  1. 1. iRTU F iRTU F Series : The RTU with fault detection Overcurrent fault detection is a key point for the MV grid control. The ability to detect these faults allows the operator of the Control Center to isolate the affected area very quickly. The direct measurement of the CT (Current Transformer) allows to know, in real time, the RMS current that flows through each line, as well as the current flowing in the neutral line. This value is compared with the threshold current and the time curves (IDTF) predefined by the user in order to determine if there is a fault state. The use of VPIS (Voltage Presence Indicating Systems) sensors when the overcurrent is detected, allows the user to know when the primary switchgear is opened.Product HighlightsFour direct readings of CT measurementsThree analog inputs, direct V 3kV insulation in the power supply, I/O and serial ports.Four digital inputsControl center connection through RS232 or ETH portswith IEC60870-5-101/-104, DNP3.0 or ModbusRTU/TCP maintenance (Telnet and FTP)Up to 3 ports (RS422/RS485) to connect any intelligentdevice (IED) using IEC60870-5-101/102/104, Modbus, compatibility and environmental standards required byProcome or DLMS. the electricity sectorI/O capabilities can be expanded with iRTUe modulesconnected through EXP422 port
  2. 2. Fault detection and MV switchgear automationiRTU F family is the ideal solution for Control and Automation of existing MV Substations, allowing to detectany kind of overcurrent that appears in their lines, and reporting to the control center the kind of event that hasbeen detected. With the overcurrent information and the voltage presence detection, the iRTU decides if thereis a fault in the MV grid and whether the switchgear must be opened or not, when there is no voltage due to theopening of the HV substation feeder.The procedure for overcurrent fault detection is summarized below :- Continuous reading of the current in RMS format.- Comparison with the threshold current and the time curves (IDTF), defined by the user in the iRTU data base.- Generation of the OC (overcurrent) alarm.- Reading of the voltage status through the VPIS sensors in order to know whether the substation feeder is opened or closed.- Based on the above parameters (RMS current value, voltage presence, time curves defined by the user, etc.), the iRTU decides if there is a fault condition and whether the switchgear must be opened.All parameters can be separately set for phase and homopolar cases in the iRTU database.Technical Specifications› Communications (4) Serial port (3kV isolation) with TX/RX LED indicators: 60870-5-101/102/104 (1) Full RS232 / RS422 / RS485 software configurable 61850 (2) RS422/RS485 software configurable (1) EXP422 for connection with iRTUe devices 1) Ethernet 10/100 45) (1) printers, etc.) › I/O (1) (4) Digital inputs.
