INTRODUCTIONN owadays, the modern society has come to depend In order to carry out power system protection main functions, protection must fulfill the followingheavily upon continuous and reliable availability of criteria; reliability, selectivity (discrimination),electricity and a high quality of electricity too [1]. sensitivity, stability and speed [6-15]. Besides ofApplications such as process industries, banking and power system protection requirements, protectivetelecommunication networking cannot function relays are the most important part in power system. Inwithout a reliable source of electric power. Thus, electrical engineering, a protective relay is a complexmaintaining a continuous supply of electricity is electromechanical apparatus, designed to calculateessential if electric supply fail to deliver. This is where operating conditions on an electrical circuit and trippower system protection becomes an important asset. circuit breakers when fault is detected. As the designerIn general, power system protection main functions or engineer of the system struggles with devising aare safeguard the entire system to maintain continuity system arrangement, the engineer simply cannot buildof supply, minimize damage and repair costs where it a system which will never fail regardless of anysenses a fault and ensure safety of personnel [2]. reasons. For designing the protective relaying,These requirements are necessary for early detection, understanding the fault characteristics is required.localization of faults and prompt removal of faulty Related to this, protection engineer should beequipment from service. Since power system conversant about tripping characteristics of variousdevelopments change its structure, the power system protective relays. The design of protective relayingprotection becomes very vital. The continuous of has to ensure that relays will be able to detectpower systems expansion with inconsistent increase of abnormal or undesirable conditions and then trip thetransmission loadability leads to protection systems circuit breaker to disconnect the affected area withoutwhich are required to perform with realibility and affecting other undesired areas. According tosecurity in the network [3-5]. statistical evidence, large numbers of relay tripping are due to improper or inadequate settings rather than to genuine faults [1] The IJES Page 1

II. OVERCURRENT RELAY COORDINATION Primary devices, which is close to the fault Basically, overcurrent relay (OCR) is a typelocation should act first before backup devices which of protective relay which operates when the loadare located farther. The primary device must respond current exceeds a preset value. It has a single input into the fault as fast as possible. These primary devices the form of ac current. The output of the relay isand backup devices must be coordinated together and normally open-contact and can changes to closed statecoordination time interval (CTI) is the criteria to be when the relay trips. Relay has two settings whichconsidered for coordination [12]. It is predefined CTI commonly known as time setting and plug setting. Theand it depends on the type of relays. For function of time setting is to decide the operating timeelectromagnetic relays, CTI is 0.3 to 0.4s while for of the relay while plug setting decides the currentmicroprocessor based relay, CTI is 0.1 to 0.2s [12]. required for the relay to pick up.The backup devices should not act first unless the The overcurrent relay is widely used in manyprimary devices fails to operate. protection applications throughout power systems. In reference [16], fault analysis may be When a fault occurs, huge amount of current flowsdivided into two steps: a) determination of the which may damage power system components.maximum currents that components must endure and Therefore, overcurrent relay must de-energize theswitching devices must interrupt and b) coordination faulted line as soon as possible to protect the systemof circuit protection.

  3. 3. Computational Intelligence Based Technique in Optimal Overcurrent Relay Coordination: A Review determine break points [33]. In the functional method, Overcurrent relays generally have current the constraints on the relay settings are formulated bysetting multipliers ranging from 50 to 200% in steps of a set of functional dependencies. Other topological25% which is referred to as plug setting (PS) [24-26]. analysis which is linear graph theory has beenPS for each relay is determined by two parameters; the extended to analyze all simple loops of the network inminimum fault current and the maximum load current both directions considering the minimum set of[24-26]. These devices provide fast operation at high breakpoints and so as the primary and backup relaycurrent and slow operation at low current and as the pairs. The solution found using this method is the bestfault current is a function of the fault location the of option settings considered but not optimal in anycoordination with other overcurrent devices is possible strict sense. Meaning that, the TSM or time dial[27]. The coordination of this protective relay is set up settings (TDS) of the relays are high. Furthermore,during the process of system design based on the fault due to the complexity of the system, trial and errorcurrent calculation. To clear faults properly within a approach and topological analysis are time consumingdefinite time, each protective relay has to coordinate and not optimal.with other protective relays located at all adjacent In cases where the distribution system hasbuses. Their coordination time is an important factor more than one connected source, directionalof the protection system design. Thus, the overall overcurrent relays turn out to be the convenienceprotection coordination is very complicated. choice. Birla et al. in [34], classified the previous Relay coordination problem is to determine works on directional overcurrent relay into threethe sequence of relay operations for each possible categories: curve fitting technique, graph theoreticalfault location so that the faulted section is isolated technique and optimization technique. The curvewith sufficient margins and without excessive time fitting techniques are used to determine the finestdelays [28]. This sequence selection is a function of function to represent data. The relay characteristic isnetwork topology, relay characteristics and protection modeled mathematically by polynomial form usingphilosophy [29]. In distribution system, the curve fitting techniques [35, 36]. Second category isovercurrent relay coordination problem can be defined graph theoretical techniques, were also reported inas constrained optimization problem. The objective in [37]. The system structure is utilized for analyzing thethe coordination problem of overcurrent relays is to information on minimum set of breakpoints, sequencedetermine the time setting multiplier (TSM) and plug for setting relay and all primary or backup relays andsetting multiplier (PSM) of each relay, so that the line directionality for directional relays. Figure 3overall operating time of the primary relays is below shows classical or conventional method usedminimized properly. Other authors aim is to determine for optimal overcurrent relay coordination.the TSM and pickup current setting for each relay, sothat the overall operating time of the primary relays isminimized. For optimal coordination, these parameters Conventional Methodshould fulfill all constraints under the shortestoperation time. Besides TSM, PSM and pickupcurrent setting, optimum method, objective function(OF), type of network either radial or interconnected Trial & Error Topological Analysisnetwork, non-linear relay characteristic proportional toTSM and PSM are to be important aspects for anoptimal coordination.

These methods can be classified overcome the conventional approach which relaysinto three classes which are trial and error, topological were arranged in a sequence before considered foranalysis method and optimization method [8-9, 16, 30- coordination [38] and due to its advantages, it32]. Trial and error approach was used but it has slow becomes popular among researchers. Furthermore,convergence rate as a result of large number of optimization techniques eliminate the need to find theiterations needed to reach a suitable relay setting [28, set of breakpoints.33]. To minimize the number of iterations required for Urdaneta et al.
