Commissioning Procedures for Protection Relays

Pre commissioning check/Instruction of Protection Relays Refer to Siemens protection relays:- Check the relay model number (type number) is as per specifications. Note the serial no of the relay of the relay. Inspect the relay for signs of physical damage. Check that any series resistors, where applicable, have been installed e.g. for CTMM relays a series resistor is required in the power circuit, depending on the supply voltage. Test the relay as per the procedure for the given relay. Protection relays can be divided in to current operated ( eg- CDG…

Voltage Transformers testing and commissioning Guidelines

Voltage Transformers ratio check

Potential / Voltage transformers Testing and Pre-Commissioning Check   Potential /Voltage transformers can be broadly divided in to two type : Indoor and outdoor type. Indoor type – Cast resin. Outdoor type – Live tank, Oil cooled.These can be of electromagnetic of capacitive voltage transformer type (CVT). PT rating  are specified as follows –  1) Metering Core-  132 KV /3 : 100v / 3 – nominal ratio 100 VA – Rated burden Class 1.0- Accuracy is 1 %, between 80 % and 120 % of rated voltage and with burdens between 25…
