S O N R E L A Y S C H O O L 2 0 1 9 Some Background Historically, ground-distance relays were not commonly used in the era of electro-mechanical relaying. In that era protection was commonly: Phase-distance Directional Ground-overcurrent With the advent of solid-state and now microprocessor relays, the ground-distance functions are more easily accomplished and have become more commonly applied. H A

N D S O N R E L A Y S C H O O L 2 0 1 9 Some Background Training Programs for Relay Technicians have historically educated new technicians well in how to test and work on phase-distance relays because they have been around for so long. Not all training programs have done as well when it comes to ground-distance concepts and practical application. This presentation will attempt to fill in some of the conceptual gaps that might be present between phase-distance and ground-distance relaying. H

O L 2 0 Ground-Distance Decisions If the relay sees an impedance of 16 = 4.32A.1582.42V, V, then the fault appears to be much farther away than it actually is on the transmission line. How does the relay properly locate the fault? 1 9 H A N D S O N R E L A Y S C H O O L

2 0 1 9 Zero Sequence Compensation We factor out the ground impedance using a compensation factor: KN What does KN do for us? First remember that for a ground fault a relay sees a combination of line impedance + ground impedance. Compensation factors allow a relay to factor out the portion of impedance seen at the relay location that is the ground impedance. This allows the relay to estimate the transmission line impedance to the fault location. H A N D S O N R E L A Y S C H O

How does this relay properly locate the fault? This relay uses the settings highlighted on the right to make compensation calculations. The first two are used for Zone 1 while the second two are used for other Zones. From the SEL-321 Manual: H A N D S O N R E L A Y S C H O O L 2 0 Ground-Mho Where did this test current come from? Since relay manufacturers vary in their exact form of compensation we need the form specifically used by this relay:

ZAG = (VA / IA) / (1+k0) ZPer-Phase = ZLoop / (1+k0) 1 9 H A N D S O N R E L A Y S C H O O L 2 0 Ground-Mho How do we use this? Using our knowledge that the loop impedance is the perphase impedance times the compensation factor we can take the Zone 2 settings, multiply the compensation factor and our result is the relay reach for Zone 2. Lets do it:

Zone 2 per-phase setting/reach is Z2MGZ1ANG Z=9.36 = 4.32A83.97 The compensation factor=1+k0 where k0=k0mk0AV, V KN = 1 + 0.726 = 4.32A-3.6 = 4.32A9V, V = 1.725-1.552V, V ZLoop= 9.36 = 4.32A83.97 * 1.725-1.552V, V = 16 = 4.32A.1582.42 Look familiar? 1 9 H A N D S O N R E L A Y S C H O O L 2 Ground-Distance Decisions How does the relay properly locate the fault?

0 1 9 Testing Ground-Distance Relays Review: Relays must make decisions based on the voltage and current at the relay location. Raw relay response to ground-impedance functions happens in the loop-impedance plane. The relay has to factor out the zero-sequence impedance to calculate a fault position on the protected line. Testing: Essentially happens in the loop-impedance plane. Once a test voltage is determined, one divides the loop impedance to calculate the test current for the impedance point being tested.

C H O O L 2 0 1 9 Synopsis - Fundamentals 1. Relays make decisions based on voltage and current at the relay location. 2. Relays are generally set in terms of per-phase impedance. 3. For ground faults relays respond to loop impedance. Relays are tested in the loop impedance plane. 4. A Compensation Factor (KN) is used to factor out zero sequence impedance to allow a relay to make a fault location decision based on the per-phase settings. Relay manufacturers use a variety of forms of compensation but their fundamental application is the same. 5. Relay test software may need interpretation to resolve discrepancies between raw values of voltage and current and per-phase settings. H A N D S O N R
