An inverse time admittance relay for fault detection in distribution networks containing DGs
Dewadasa, Manjula, Ghosh, Arindam, & Ledwich, Gerard (2009) An inverse time admittance relay for fault detection in distribution networks containing DGs. In TENCON 2009 IEEE Region 10 Conference, 23-26 November 2009, Suntec International Convention and Exhibition Centre, Singapore.
Isolation of a faulted segment, from either side of a fault, in a radial feeder that has several converter interfaced DGs is a challenging task when current sensing protective devices are employed. The protective device, even if it senses a downstream fault, may not operate if fault current level is low due to the current limiting operation of converters. In this paper, a new inverse type relay is introduced based on line admittance measurement to protect a distribution network, which has several converter interfaced DGs. The basic operation of this relay, its grading and reach settings are explained. Moreover a method is proposed to compensate the fault resistance such that the relay operation under this condition is reliable. Then designed relay performances are evaluated in a radial distribution network. The results are validated through PSCAD/EMTDC simulation and MATLAB calculations.
