1 Introduction

1.1 Application
PCS-985G can be applied for large-scale turbo-dynamo, gas-turbine generator and nuclear power
generator with different connection modes.
PCS-985G provides complete electric quantity protection of a generator and an exciter or
excitation transformer. It also supports ECT/EVT and meets the requirements of power plant
automation.
For a large-scale generator, two sets of PCS-985G can be used and then main protection,
abnormal operation condition protection and backup protection can be duplicated. Control circuit
and mechanical protection are installed on a separate panel. Two sets of PCS-985G use different
CT groups and main and backup protection in one PCS-985G share one CT group. The outputs
correspond to various trip coils.

1.2 Function
PCS-985G takes fully into account maximum configuration of large-scale generator, and suits the
generator with capacity of 100MW or above.

Note!

1.2.2 Configuration Explanation


1.2.2.1 Differential Protection
1.

For generator with the capacity of 300MW or above, panel A and B are both equipped with
generator differential protection.

2.

For generator differential protection, there are two kinds of percentage differential protection:
variable slope percentage differential protection and DPFC percentage differential protection.

1.2.2.2 Backup Protection


1.

Panel A and B are equipped with complete set of backup protection of generator and
excitation transformer/exciter. Different CTs are used for them.

2.

As to rotor earth-fault protection, two sets of such protection cannot work simultaneously
otherwise influence between them will appear. Only one set of rotor earth-fault protection can
be enabled during operation. If other set will be put into operation sometimes, this set shall be
quitted firstly.

1.2.2.3 Current Transformer


1.

Panels A and B adopt different CT.

2.

Main protection and backup protection share one group of CT.

3.

Generator reverse power protection can share one group of generator terminal CT with
generator differential protection, or adopt independent measurement CT.

1.2.2.4 Voltage Transformer


1.

Panel A and B shall adopt different VT or its different windings if possible.

2.

For generator inter-turn protection, in order to prevent undesired operation due to VT circuit
failure at HV side used dedicatedly for this protection, one set of protection shall adopt two
groups of VT. However, if it is considered to adopt only independent VT windings, too much
VT will be installed at generator terminal and it is not reasonable. So it is recommended to
equip three windings of VT there, namely VT1, VT2 and VT3. Panel A adopts voltage from
VT1 and VT3 while panel B VT2 and VT3. During normal operation, panel A adopts VT1 and
panel B adopts VT2 while VT3 is backup to both of them. If circuit of VT1 or VT2 fails, VT3 will
be switched on automatically by software.

3.

For residual voltage, there are two windings adopted by two sets of protection equipments
simultaneously in general.

1.3 Features

High-performance general-purpose hardware and real-time calculations

PCS-985G Generator Relay

1-3
Date: 2013-06-23

1 Introduction

Hardware structure of 32-bit microprocessorsdual DSP is adopted. A number of processors


operate in parallel. 32-bit microprocessors provide functions of HMI, communication, and printing,
etc. The two DSPs provide protection operations and output logic. High performance hardware
ensures real-time calculation for all relays in each sampling interval of this relay. This relay adopts
32-bit high performance CPUs and DSPs, internal high-speed bus, and intelligent I/O. Both
hardware and software adopt modular design, which can be flexibly configured. Features include
versatility, easy expansion, and easy maintenance.

Independent fault detector elements

The output mode of fault detector AND protection operation eliminates the possibility of
malfunction and misjudgment caused by hardware fault of the device.

Strong EM compatibility

Integral panel and fully enclosed chassis are adopted. Strong electricity and weak electricity are
strictly separated. Traditional rear board wiring mode is not used. At the same time, measures
against interference are taken in software design, greatly improving the immunity to disturbances.
EM radiation to outside satisfies relevant standards.

Modular programs

Modular programs allow flexible protection configuration and easy functional adjustment.

Variable slope percentage differential protection

Variable slope percentage characteristic is adopted for differential protection. Pickup slope and
maximum slope should be reasonably set, so that high sensitivity can be gained during internal
fault and transient unbalance current can be avoided during external fault. In order to prevent
undesired operation of differential protection due to CT saturation, measures to discriminate CT
saturation are provided for phase current at each side.

DPFC percentage differential protection

DPFC percentage differential protection reflects only deviation components of differential current
and restraint current and is not effected by load current. It can detect light fault within generator.
Besides, it is insensitive to CT saturation since its restraint coefficient is set comparatively high.

Detect CT Saturation by asynchronous method

According to relation between DPFC restraint current and DPFC differential current of differential
protection, external or internal fault can be discriminated correctly. For external fault, waveform
discrimination of phase current and differential current is adopted. Undesired operation will not
occur if CT correct transfer time from primary to secondary side is not less than 5ms. As to internal
fault, the device will operate quickly.

High-sensitive transverse differential protection

By adopting frequency tracking, digital filter and Fourier transformation, the filtration ratio of third
harmonic component can reach more than 100. These entire countermeasure guarantees the
reliability of the protection in all occasions as mentioned as below:

PCS-985G Generator Relay

1-4
Date: 2013-06-23

1 Introduction

The transverse differential protection can get reliable restraint effect because the faulty phase
current increases greatly while transverse differential current increases less in external fault
situation.
The protection has very high operation sensitivity because transverse differential current
increases comparatively large whereas phase current change not too observably in slightly
inter-turn fault situation.
The high-setting stage of transverse differential protection will operate quickly and reliably when
severe inter-turn fault occurs in stator winding.
In case of phase-to-phase fault of stator winding, not only transverse differential current but also
phase current increase greatly, therefore just low percentage restraint by phase current
guarantees the reliable operation of transverse differential protection against the fault.
As for unbalanced transverse differential current increasing during normal operation condition,
transverse differential protection uses float threshold to avoid undesired operation.

Percentage restraint inter-turn protection

By adopting frequency tracking, digital filter and Fourier transformation, the filtration ratio of third
harmonic component can reach more than 100. Calculated longitudinal residual overvoltage
protection is adopted in PCS-985G, which is the new criteria of generator inter-turn protection and
does not need the special VT for the protection.

Stator earth-fault protection

By adopting frequency tracking, digital filter and Fourier transformation, the filtration ratio of third
harmonic component can reach more than 100.
The sensitive stage of fundamental residual voltage protection operates and issues trip command
only if the dual criterias of residual voltages of generator terminal and neutral point are met at the
same time.
The ratio settings of third harmonic of generator terminal to that of neutral point used in third
harmonic ratio criteria will automatically suit to the change of ratio fore-and-aft incorporating in
power network third harmonic voltage of the plant unit. This automation adjustment function
ensures the correctness of signals generated and issued by the third harmonic voltage criteria
even during incorporation or isolation course of generator.
The ratio and phase-angle difference of third harmonic voltage of generator terminal to that of
neutral point keeps almost stable when the generator is in normal operation condition; also it is a
slow developing course. Through real time adjustment of coefficient of amplitude value and phase,
PCS-985 makes differential voltage between generator terminal and neutral point as zero in
normal operation condition. When stator earth fault occurs, the criteria tend to operate reliably and
sensitively.

Stator earth-fault protection with external voltage injection principle

The protection adopts digital technology to calculate earth fault resistance accurately.

PCS-985G Generator Relay

1-5
Date: 2013-06-23

1 Introduction

Settings configured two stage are provided. One stage operates to alarm, and the other stage
operates to trip.
The residual current protection is free from impact of 20Hz power, which provides mainly
protection for comparatively severe stator earth fault.
The protection is adaptive for various operation conditions, such as stillness, no-load, shutdown,
startup and connected to power grid.

Sampling-switch type rotor earth-fault protection

DC current is input by high-performance isolated amplifier. Via switching two different electronic
switches, PCS-985 solves four different ground-loop equations to compute rotor winding voltage,
rotor ground resistance and earthing position on real time and display these information on LCD.

Rotor earth-fault with external voltage injection principle

Injecting a low-frequency square wave between positive terminal and negative terminal of rotor
windings or between one terminal of rotor windings and axis, the device acquires leakage current
of rotor, and calculates insulation resistance between rotor windings and ground in real-time. The
injected square wave voltage is generated by the device. The protection reflects the insulation
reduction between rotor windings and axis.
The calculation to rotor earth resistance is unrelated to fault location, and no dead zone.
The calculation accuracy of rotor earth resistance is high and is not affected by the capacitance
between rotor windings and ground.
The calculation to rotor earth resistance is unrelated to excitation voltage. It can still supervise
insulation situation of rotor windings when no excitation voltage is supplied.
It can be adaptive to various lead-out modes of rotor windings, and both single-end injection and
double-ends injection can be selected. The fault location can be measured if selecting
double-ends injection.

Loss-of-excitation protection

Loss-of-excitation protection adopts optimizing protection scheme in which stator impedance


criteria, reactive power criteria, rotor voltage criteria and busbar voltage criteria, could be
optionally combined to meet various demands of different generator units.

Out-of-step protection

Out-of-step protection adopts three-impedance element (gains from positive-sequence current


and positive sequence voltage of generator) to distinguish out-of-step from steady oscillation.
More than that, the protection can accurately locate the position of oscillation center and record
oscillation slid numbers of external and internal oscillation respectively in real-time.

VT circuit failure supervision

Two groups of VT inputs are equipped at generator terminal. If one group fails, the device will
issue alarm and switch over to the healthy one automatically. It doesnt need to block protection

1 Introduction

element relevant to voltage. Based on percentage restraint characteristic, it can discriminate that
neutral point of VT circuit fails.

CT circuit failure supervision

Reliable blocking function when CT circuit failure can prevent the device from undesired operation
due to CT circuit failure or AC sampled circuit failure.

Flexible communication mode is provided. 2 independent Ethernet interfaces and 2 independent


RS-485 communication interfaces are provided. Power industry communication standard
IEC60870-5-103, Modbus protocol and new generation substation communication standard
IEC61850 are supported.

3 Operation Theory

3.1 Overview
The device has 2 plug-in modules (i.e. protection DSP module and fault detector DSP module),
and the logic relation between them is AND. They have independent sample circuit and output
circuit. AC current and voltage is converted into small voltage signal and sent to protection
calculation module (also called DSP module 1) and fault detector calculation module (also called
DSP module 2) respectively. Protection DSP module is responsible for protection calculation and
fault detector DSP module is responsible for fault detector. Fault detectors on fault detector DSP
module picks up to connect positive pole of power supply of output relays. Real-time data
exchange between protection DSP module and fault detector DSP module is performed. Based on
strict mutual check and self-check, any of them fails will lead to block the device and issue alarm
signal. The device will not mal-operate due to hardware error.

3.2 Fault Detector (FD)


Each fault detector element will be enabled when the corresponding protection element is enabled.
After the fault detector element operates, the positive power supply will be provided to output relay
and pickup signal will keep 500ms even the fault detector element drops off. Tripping output is only
enabled if both corresponding fault detector element on fault detector DSP module and
corresponding protection element on protection DSP module operate, otherwise the device will
issue alarm signal. The fault detector element with the prefix of FD_ will delay drop-off with a
time delay of 500ms, and the fault detector element with the prefix of St_ will dropoff with no
time delay. The principle of each fault detector element is given below:

tripping signal only due to CT circuit failure (optional) and inrush current. It eliminates influence of
transient and steady saturation of CT during external fault and ensures reliable operation even if
CT is in saturation condition during internal fault by means of its percentage restraint characteristic.
Its operation area is deep shadow area.
Unrestrained instantaneous differential protection element (described in section 3.3.5) will send
tripping signal without any blocking if differential current of any phase reaches its setting. Its
operation area is over the above two areas with no shadow.

3.3.2 Inrush Current Detection Element


1.

Second harmonic restraint principle

In the device, the second harmonic of differential current can be used to distinguish inrush current.
Its operation criterion is:

I 2 nd K 2 xb I1st
Where:

I 2 nd is the second harmonic of each phase differential current.


I1st is the differential fundamental current of corresponding phase.
k 2 xb is the setting of restraint coefficient of second harmonic. (0.15 is recommended value)
2.

Waveform distortion discrimination principle

During internal fault, differential currents of various sides transferred by CT are basically
fundamental sinusoidal wave. But when the transformer is energized, lots of harmonics occur. The
waveform is intermittent and unsymmetrical. A special algorithm can be used for discrimination of
the inrush current.
During internal fault, following relation exists:

S kb*S

S St
Where:
S is the full cycle integral of differential current
S+ is full cycle integral of the sum of instantaneous value of differential current and that of half
cycle before.
Kb is a fixed constant.
St is a threshold value which can be represented as follows:

3 Operation Theory

St * I d 0.1* I e
Where:
Id is the full cycle integral of differential current.
is a proportional constant.
Ie is the secondary rated current of excitation transformer/exciter.
If any of three phases can not meet above equation, the differential current can be considered as
inrush current and percentage differential protection will be blocked.
In this device, logic setting is provided for user to select the restraint blocking principle. If the logic
setting is set as 0, discrimination by harmonics is enabled. Otherwise, discrimination by
waveform distortion is enabled.

3.3.3 CT Saturation Detection Element


In order to prevent undesired operation of steady-state percentage differential protection caused
by transient or steady-state CT saturation during external fault, composite harmonics of secondary
differential current is used for the device to discriminate CT saturation. The expression is as
following:

I cop K nxb I1
Where:

I cop is the composite harmonics of phase differential current.


I1 is the fundamental component of corresponding phase differential current.
k nxb is proportional coefficient.
For an internal fault, DPFC restraint current and DPFC differential current appear simultaneously.
If DPFC restraint current appears before DPFC differential current, it maybe an external fault. CT
saturation detection element shall be adopted in this case. It can prevent percentage differential
protection from undesired operation due to CT saturation.

3.3.4 High-setting Percentage Differential Protection Element (HSDP)


A percentage differential protection with high percentage and high setting is equipped with the
device to prevent delayed operation of percentage differential protection caused by CT saturation
and other factors during serious internal fault. This protection is blocked only by inrush current
criterion i.e. second harmonic of differential current or waveform discrimination. It can prevent
influence of steady state and transient CT saturation during external fault and can operate
correctly and quickly during internal fault even if CT is in saturation condition. Operation criterion of
3-8

this high setting percentage differential protection is:

The aim of unrestrained instantaneous differential protection for excitation transformer/exciter is to
accelerate the trip speed for excitation transformer/exciters inner fault. So the element does not
need any block element, but the setting should be greater than maximum inrush current.
Its operation criterion is:
Differential current of any phase is greater than the setting [I_InstDiff_Exc].

3.3.6 Differential Current Abnormality Alarm and CT Circuit Failure Blocking


Differential current abnormality alarm with percentage restraint and instant CT circuit failure
blocking function are equipped with the device.

3 Operation Theory

CT circuit failure blocking function can be configured by logic setting [Opt_CTS_Blk_PcntDiff_Exc].


When such failure occurs and is discriminated, issuing alarm signal only or blocking percentage
differential protection is optional. If the logic setting is set as 1, percentage differential protection
will be blocked immediately.

3.3.7 Overexcitation Detection Element


When an excitation transformer/exciter is overexcited, the exciting current will increase sharply
which may result in unwanted operation of differential protection. Therefore the overexcitation
shall be discriminated to block the current differential protection. The fifth harmonic of differential
current is used as criterion of overexcitation discrimination.

I 5th k5 xb * I1st
Where:

I1st is fundamental component of differential current.


I 5th is fifth harmonic of differential current.

k5 xb is the fifth harmonic restraint coefficient, it is fixed at 0.25.


Note!
High-setting percentage differential protection is not blocked by fifth harmonic of differential
current.

3.4.2 High Performance Blocking Technique in Case of CT Saturation


In order to prevent unwanted operation of steady-state percentage differential protection due to CT
transient or steady state saturation during external fault, discrimination of waveform of differential
current principle is adopted as criterion of CT saturation.
PCS-985G Generator Relay

3-13
Date: 2013-06-28

3 Operation Theory

When fault occurs, the equipment decides firstly whether it is internal or external fault. If it is
external fault, criterion of CT saturation is enabled. If any phase differential current of differential
protection meets the criterion, it is decided that this differential current comes from CT saturation
and the percentage differential protection will be blocked.

3.4.3 High-setting Percentage Differential Protection (HSDP)


A percentage differential protection with high percentage coefficient and high pick-up setting is
equipped with the equipment to prevent operation of percentage differential protection delayed by
CT saturation and other factors during serious internal fault. It can prevent influence of steady
state and transient CT saturation during external fault due to its percentage restraint characteristic
and can operate correctly and quickly during internal fault and CT being saturated. Operation
criterion of this high setting percentage differential protection is

I d 1.2 I e

I d 1.0 I r
Where:
Differential current I d and restraint current I r are the same as mentioned above.
When fault occurs, the operation criterion will be discriminated phase by phase and percentage
differential protection will operate if the criterion is met.
Parameters of this protection are configured during manufacturing and not need to be configured
in site.

3.4.4 Unrestrained Instantaneous Differential Protection (UIDP)


This protection will operate and trip immediately if differential current of any phase is higher than
its setting.

3.4.5 Differential Current Abnormality Alarm and CT Circuit Failure Blocking


Differential current abnormality alarm with percentage restraint and instant CT circuit failure
blocking function are equipped with the device.
CT circuit failure blocking function can be configured by logic setting [Opt_CTS_Blk_PcntDiff_Gen].
When such failure occurs and is discriminated, issuing alarm signal only or blocking percentage
differential protection is optional. If the logic setting is set as 1, percentage differential protection
will be blocked immediately.

due to influence of load current. DPFC percentage differential protection of generator is equipped
with the device for that and it can significantly improve sensitivity of the protection during small
current internal fault of generator.

Where:

I dt is floating threshold which increases progressively along with DPFC increasing. Take its
multiple as 1.25 can ensure threshold voltage always a bit higher than imbalance current. So that
unwanted operation of the equipment can be avoided during power swing and frequency deviation
conditions.

I1 and I 2 are currents at the generator terminal and the neutral point of generator
respectively.

I d is DPFC differential current.

I r is DPFC restraint current whose maximum value is taken for actual restraint.
I dth is fixed threshold.
Note!
Calculation of restraint current of DPFC percentage differential protection is different from
steady-state percentage differential protection, it is difficult to test this function on site, so
we recommend only qualitative function test on site.
DPFC differential protection is equipped to each phase of generator, but the user should
know that DPFC restraint quantity for each phase is the same maximum value among the
three phases.
The following figure shows operating characteristic of DPFC percentage differential protection.

When fault occurs, the operation criterion will be discriminated phase by phase and percentage

eliminate the effect of transient and steady-state CT saturation during the external fault because
the restraint coefficient is set at a higher value.

3.6 Generator Inter-turn Protection


3.6.1 High-sensitive Transverse Differential Protection
Transverse differential protection installed on connection between two neutral points of generator
is used as main protection of inter-turn fault of generators stator winding, open circuit fault of
branches and short circuit fault between phases.
Since this protection adopts frequency tracing, digital filtering and full cycle Fourier algorithm, the
third harmonic can be reduced to 1/100 within the frequency tracing range and the protection can
response the fundamental component only.
This protection comprises two stages: high-setting stage (insensitive stage) and sensitive stage.
3.6.1.1 High-setting Stage
This stage is equivalent to traditional transverse differential protection. When the transverse
differential current is in excess of the setting [I_InsensTrvDiff_Gen], high-setting stage of
transverse differential protection operates.
3.6.1.2 Sensitive Stage
Phase current percentage restraint principle is used for this stage. The operation criterion is

I d I hcZD

I MAX I e
I (1 K
) I hcZD
d
hcZD

I
e

when I MAX I e
when I MAX I e

Where:

I d is the transverse differential current.


I hcZD is the transverse differential current setting [I_SensTrvDiff_Gen].

I MAX is the maximum value of three phase current of generator.


I d is the rated current of generator.

3-18

PCS-985G Generator Relay


Date: 2013-06-28

3 Operation Theory

K hcZD is the restraint coefficient.


Phase current percentage restraint transverse differential principle can ensure no unwanted
operation during external fault and sensitive operation during internal fault. As this principle is
adopted, current setting of the transverse differential protection shall be only higher than
unbalance current during normal operation and much less than that of traditional transverse
differential current protection. Sensitivity for inter-turn fault of generator can be enhanced then.
This protection has also a floating threshold for high transverse differential unbalance current
during other normal operation conditions.
Operation of the high sensitive transverse differential protection will lead a tripping immediately.
When rotor of generator is grounded at one point, a configurable time delay [t_TrvDiff_Gen] will be
inserted in the tripping course. Figure 3.6-1 shows logic diagram of this protection.

3.6.2 Longitudinal Residual Voltage Protection


Longitudinal residual voltage protection is configured for inter-turn fault of stator winding of
generator. It uses open-delta voltage of dedicated VT at the generator terminal as the criterion.
Since this protection adopts frequency tracing, digital filtering and full cycle Fourier algorithm, the
third harmonic can be reduced to 1/100 within the frequency tracing range and the protection can
response the basic wave component only.
Setting of this protection shall be higher than maximum unbalance voltage during external fault,
whilst directional flag indicating internal fault must be satisfied. When measured longitudinal
residual voltage is in excess of the setting [V_SensROV_Longl_Gen] and lasts for longer than the
delay setting [t_ROV_Longl_Gen], this protective element will trip breakers according to the
configuration of [TrpLog_IntTurn_Gen].
Operation of this element is usually configured to be delayed shortly by 0.1s~0.2s.

3.6.3 VT2 Circuit Failure Alarm and Blocking


Longitudinal residual voltage protection for inter-turn fault of stator shall be blocked when the
dedicated VT2 circuit at the generator terminal fails. There are two criteria to decide to whether or
not block the protection.
Criterion 1:
1.

Negative-sequence voltage of VT1: 3U2<U2_set1 and broken-delta voltage of VT2: 3U0>Uozd

(residual voltage setting)


2.

Negative-sequence voltage of VT2: 3U2<U2_set2 and broken-delta voltage of VT2:


3U0>Uozd (residual voltage setting)

Criterion 2:

U AB U ab 5V or U BC U bc 5V or U CA U ca 5V , and broken-delta voltage of VT2:


3U0>Uozd (residual voltage setting)
Where:

U AB , U BC , U CA are phase-to-phase voltages of VT1


U ab , U bc , U ca are phase-to-phase voltages of VT2
That any one of these three sub-criteria is met means criterion 2 picks up.
When any of criterion 1 and criterion 2 operates, alarm of VT2 circuit failure will be issued with a
time delay of 40ms and longitudinal residual voltage protection will be blocked.
After VT2 circuit failure reverting to normal condition, blocking can be released by pressing the
reset button.

3.6.4 DPFC Inter-turn Protection


The operation criterion is:

FRe U 2 I 2 e j 1.25 dF

U 2 0.5V 1.25du
I 2 0.02In 1.25di
If the three criterions are met simultaneity, the directional flag of protection is set. Under
negative-sequence voltage and negative-sequence current controlling, the protection operates
after 0.2~0.5s time delay.
AC current and voltage input of DPFC inter-turn protection are from the generator terminal directly.
When the VT1 at the generator terminal fails, DPFC inter-turn protection is blocked. The setting is
default setting. The sensitivity is about 3V of longitudinal residual voltage.
DPFC inter-turn protection cannot response to inter-turn fault before the generator is connected
into the power system.

3.6.5 Calculated Longitudinal Residual Voltage Protection


Dedicated VT is not needed in this protection, calculated longitudinal residual voltage used by the
PCS-985G Generator Relay

protection is composed of residual voltage of generator terminal VT1 and neutral point, the
protection is configured for inter-turn fault of stator winding of generator.
The operation criterion is:

U z0 U f 0 K tz U n 0 U z 0 zd
Where:

U zozd is the residual voltage setting [V_SensROV_Longl_Gen].

U f 0 is residual voltage of generator terminal VT1.

U n 0 is residual voltage of neutral point.


K tz is complex number adjustment coefficient.
After the generator is connected into the power system, calculated longitudinal residual voltage
protection will be controlled by DPFC negative-sequence power direction element, the voltage
setting for this protection should be greater than the maximum unbalance voltage during normal
operation.
Calculated longitudinal residual voltage protection share the voltage setting and time delay setting
with longitudinal residual voltage protection, it can operate to issue alarm signal or trip with a short
time delay (0.1s~0.2s.)

3U0>Uozd (residual voltage setting)

Where:

U ab , U bc , U ca are phase-to-phase voltages of VT2.
When any of criterion 1 and criterion 2 operates, alarm of VT1 circuit failure will be issued with a
time delay of 40ms and calculated longitudinal residual voltage protection will be blocked.
After VT1 circuit failure reverting to normal condition, blocking can be released by pressing the
reset button.

3.7 Phase-to-phase Backup Protection of Generator


3.7.1 Voltage Controlled Overcurrent Protection
This protection is used as a backup protection of generator, main transformer, HV busbar and
adjacent lines. There are two stages with their own delay settings respectively. Stage 1 is used to
trip bus coupler breaker or other circuit breaker and stage 2 to shut down the generator. Figure
3.7-1 shows its logic diagram.

negative-sequence overvoltage element. These two elements are jointed together by OR gate. By

3 Operation Theory

relevant logic setting, stage 1 and stage 2 of overcurrent protection can be configured to be
controlled by composite voltage element respectively.
3.7.1.2 Current Memory
For generators with self shunt excitation, current will decrease so quickly during fault that it may be
lower than overcurrent setting before tripping. So memorized function for remember fault current is
equipped with this protection. Logic setting [En_Mem_Curr_Gen] is used for configuration of this
function.
Note!
When logic setting [En_Mem_Curr_Gen] is enabled, overcurrent protection must be
controlled by voltage element.
3.7.1.3 Blocking by HV-side Composite Voltage
Overcurrent protection can be blocked not only by composite voltage at generator terminal but
also by composite voltage at HV side of main transformer. This function can be configured by
setting logic setting [En_HVS.VCE_Ctrl_OC_Gen] as 1.
3.7.1.4 Influence on Protection Performance during VT Circuit Failure
A logic setting [Opt_VTS_Ctrl_OC_Gen] is used to configure composite voltage element during VT
circuit failure. When this logic setting is set as 1, if VT circuit failure at this side is detected, the
composite voltage element will not meet conditions to operate. When this logic setting is set as 0,
if VT circuit failure at this side is detected, composite voltage element is disabled, overcurrent
protection will not be blocked and becomes a pure overcurrent protection.

3.7.2 Impedance Protection


Two stages impedance protection is equipped at the generator terminal as its phase-to-phase
backup protection. Phase-to-phase current used in impedance protection is derived from CT at the
neutral point of generator. Full impedance, directional impedance or shifted impedance
characteristic can be selected to operate for these two stages. Full impedance characteristic suits
case of forward setting of a zone being equal to its reverse setting. Directional impedance
characteristic suits case of reverse setting of a zone being set as 0. Shifted impedance
characteristic suits for case that forward setting of a zone is higher than its reverse setting. Reach
angle of impedance protection is 78. Forward of the impedance protection is configurable and

Where:

I t is floating threshold which increases gradually along with DPFC increasing. Take its multiple

Unwanted operation of the device can be avoided during conditions of power swing and frequency
deviation from nominal values.

I th is the fixed threshold. When DPFC phase-to-phase current is higher than 0.2Ie, the fault

Where:
Flg_Zn_Gen is internally generated indicating stage n of distance protection of generator is met.
n can be 1 or 2.
Note!
If VT circuit failure occurs, impedance protection of generator will be blocked.
Note!
When stage 1 of phase-to-phase backup protection of generator operates to trip bus
coupler circuit breaker, this function can be selected whether or not be blocked by the logic
setting [En_CB_Ctrl_OC1_Gen].

3.8 Stator Earth-fault Protection


3.8.1 Fundamental Residual Overvoltage Protection
Single-phase earth fault within 85%~95% ranges from terminal of stator winding can be protected
by fundamental residual overvoltage protection.
Fundamental residual overvoltage protection reacts to magnitude of residual voltage of generator.
Since it adopts frequency tracing, digital filtering and full cycle Fourier algorithm, the third
harmonic can be reduced to 1/100 within the frequency tracing range and the protection can
response the basic wave component only.
This protection comprises two stages: sensitive stage and insensitive stage (high setting stage).
3.8.1.1 Sensitive Stage
Operation criterion:

U n0 U 0zd
Where:

PCS-985G Generator Relay

3-27
Date: 2013-06-28

3 Operation Theory

U n 0 is residual voltage of neutral point of generator.


U 0zd is operation threshold setting of fundamental residual voltage [V_SensROV_Sta].
When the sensitive stage operates to trip, in order to prevent sensitive stage of fundamental
residual overvoltage protection from undesired trip due to external fault, it can be blocked by
residual voltage at HV side of main transformer, and the blocking setting of residual voltage can
settable.
3.8.1.2 High-setting Stage
Operation criterion:

U n0 U 0hzd
Where:

U n0 is residual voltage of neutral point of generator.


U 0hzd is residual voltage high setting [V_InsensROV_Sta]. 20V~25V is recommended generally.
The high-setting stage can be independently set to trip.

3.8.2 Third Harmonic Voltage Ratio Protection


This protection is designed to cover only about 25% of earth fault of the stator winding away from
generator terminal. Third harmonic voltage of generator terminal is got from its broken-delta
residual voltage. Third harmonic voltage of neutral point side is got from neutral point VT of the
generator.
Operation criterion:

U 3T / U 3N K 3wzd
Where:

U 3T and U 3N are third harmonic voltage of generator terminal and neutral point respectively.
K 3wzd is the third harmonic voltage percentage setting.
During incorporation of generator to power system, the ratio U3T/U3N changes considerably owing
to variation of equivalent capacitive reactance at generator terminal. So two different settings are
designed for protection before and after connection of generator with system, and these two
settings can be switched over with alternation of contacts position of the terminal breaker.
In addition, settings are provided for deciding whether the ratio protection of third harmonics
3-28

3 Operation Theory

voltage is used for alarm or tripping or both.


Third harmonic voltage ratio protection can operates for alarm purpose or trip purpose.

3.8.3 Third Harmonic Voltage Differential Protection


Operation criterion:

U 3T K t U 3 N Kre U 3 N
Where:

U 3T and U 3 N are third harmonic vector voltage of generator terminal and neutral point
K t is automatic tracing regulation coefficient
K re is third harmonic differential percentage setting
This protection is enabled automatically when the generator has been connected with the system
and load current is higher than 0.2 Ie (generator rated current) and only issues alarms if operates.
Third harmonic voltage differential protection operates only for alarm purpose.

3.8.4 VT Circuit Failure Blocking


1.

Broken-delta VT circuit failure alarm of generator terminal and neutral point of generator

Since broken-delta voltages of VT at neutral point and generator terminal are taken for residual
voltage protection of stator, failure of these VT circuits will make this protection fail to operation. So
alarm shall be issued during this case. Third harmonic voltage ratio criterion and third harmonic
voltage differential criterion shall be disabled during VT circuit failure at neutral point of generator.
The operation criterion is:
Positive-sequence voltage of secondary winding of generator terminal is higher than 0.9Un and
third harmonic of residual voltage is lower than 0.1V.
VT circuit failure alarm will be issued by delay 10s and reverted automatically by delay 10s when
the failure vanishes.
If residual voltage of generator terminal is from calculated residual voltage, broken-delta circuit
failure of VT1 at generator terminal is not discriminated.
The alarm function of broken-delta VT circuit failure of generator terminal and neutral point of
generator can be enabled or disabled by logic setting [En_Alm_DeltVTS1_Gen].
2.

Primary circuit failure of VT1 at generator terminal

Secondary circuit failure of VT1 of generator terminal will not influence ground protection of stator.
PCS-985G Generator Relay

3-29
Date: 2013-06-28

3 Operation Theory

Primary circuit failure of VT1 of generator terminal will cause basic wave component of residual
voltage of generator terminal increasing and third harmonic component decreasing, and will not
cause unwanted operation of basic wave residual voltage protection and third harmonic voltage
ratio protection. However, it will cause unwanted operation of third harmonic voltage differential
protection, so this protection shall be blocked during this failure. The operation criterion is:
1.

Negative-sequence voltage of VT2: 3U2<3V

2.

Negative-sequence voltage of VT1: 3U2 >8V

3.

Calculated residual voltage of VT1: 3U0>8V

4.

Open-delta residual voltage of VT1: 3U0>8V

When these criterions are met, VT1 primary circuit failure alarm will be sent by short delay and
third harmonic voltage differential protection and third harmonic voltage ratio protection will be
blocked.
If residual voltage of generator terminal is from calculated residual voltage, primary circuit failure of
VT1 is not discriminated.

3.9.1 Earthing Resistance Criterion


Earthing resistance criterion is not related to the location of stator windings earth fault, and it can
protect 100% range of stator windings for single-phase earth-fault.
According to the earthing resistance of stator windings, PCS-985G provides two stages for alarm
purpose with high setting and for trip purpose with low setting respectively. The operation

criterions are:

RE REsetL

(for trip purpose)

RE REsetH

(for alarm purpose)

Where:

RE is calculated earth resistance.


REsetL is resistance setting for trip purpose.
REsetH is resistance setting for alarm purpose.

3.9.2 Earthing Current Criterion


If an earth fault happens to stator windings near generator terminal during normal generator
operation, fundamental components will increase obviously and the sensitivity of detecting
low-frequency faulty components will be affected seriously. In order to improve the sensitivity,
earthing current criterion is equipped with the device. It can detect single-phase fault with the
range of 80%~90% stator windings away from generator terminal. The great advantage of this
criterion is that more close to the generator terminal the fault point locates, more high sensitivity
the criterion can get, which can realize 100% stator earth-fault protection cooperated with the
earthing resistance criterion.
The operation criterion is:

I G 0 I Eset
Where:

I G 0 is earthing current of stator without being subjected to digital filter.


I Eset is earthing current setting.

3.9.3 External Voltage Circuit Monitoring


When U LF 0 ( U G 0 is low-frequency voltage after Un0 is digital filtered) is smaller than the setting
value or I LF 0 ( I G 0 is low-frequency current after In0 is digital filtered) is smaller than the setting
value, it means that external injection circuit for stator earth-fault protection is abnormal. The
device will be blocked and issue an alarm signal.

3.11 Rotor Earth-fault Protection with Voltage Injection


3.11.1 One-point Earth-fault Protection
Based on leading-out mode of rotor windings, rotor earth fault protection with injection principle of
double-ends or single-end can be selected. The injected power supply is connected to rotor
winding from between the positive/negative pole (or only negative pole) and shaft. The switching
cycle of injected power supply can be adjusted depended on in accordance with the capacitor
between rotor winding and ground. The rotor earth-fault protection with injection principle can
reflect a decline in insulation resistance between generator rotor and shaft by real-time calculating
one-point earth resistance of rotor.
The work circuit of voltage injection into the rotor winding at double-ends and single-end is shown
in Figure 3.11-1 and Figure 3.11-2 respectively.

two-point earth fault protection will be enabled automatically with a time delay after regular stage

Inverse-time stator overload protection consists of three parts: low-setting initiator, inverse-time
part and upper-limit definite-time part.
The upper-limit definite-time part has minimum operating time. When stator current reaches its low
setting (Iszd), inverse-time part initiates and the heat is accumulated. When the accumulated
value is greater than the setting, inverse-time stator overload protection operates to trip.
Inverse-time part can simulate generator-heating process including heat accumulation and
dissipation. When the stator current is lower than rated value, the heat accumulation will decrease
accordingly.

due to negative-sequence current. This protection takes negative-sequence current at generator
terminal and neutral point as its criterion.

3.14 Loss-of-excitation Protection


Loss of excitation represents abnormal operation of generator due to excitation failure. There are 3
criterion used for loss-of-excitation protection: undervoltage criterion, stator-side impedance
criterion and rotor-side criterion.

3.14.1 Undervoltage Criterion


Three-phase voltages on busbar side generally and those at generator terminal sometimes are
taken as this criterion. Three-phase voltage should meet the criterion simultaneous.

Where:
Upp is phase-to-phase voltage of busbar or of generator terminal.
Ulezd is undervoltage setting [V_BusUV_LossExc_Gen].
When bus voltage is taken as the criterion, if bus VT circuit fails, the protection will be blocked.

When generator terminal voltage is taken as the criterion, if one group of VT circuit fails, the other
group of VT will be switched over automatically.

This criterion is impedance circle including asynchronous impedance circle and steady-state
stabilization limit circle. The operation criterion is

270 Arg

Z jX B
90
Z jX A

Where:
XA: can be set as the system impedance Xs for steady-state stabilization limit circle and XA= 0.5
X'd for asynchronous impedance circle
XB: is taken as Xd+0.5 X'd for non-salient pole generator and 0.5(XdXq)+0.5 X'd for salient pole
generator
The impedance criterion can be combined with reverse reactive power criterion, i.e.,
Q<[Q_RevQ_LossExc_Gen].
Using the same current and voltage to calculate inactive power and reverse power.
Figure 3.14-1 and Figure 3.14-2 show operation characteristics of steady-state stabilization
impedance circle and asynchronous impedance circle.

Besides operation criterion mentioned above, there are also auxiliary operation criterion, namely:
1.

Positive-sequence voltage is greater than or equal to 6V

2.

Negative-sequence voltage U2 is lower than 0.1Un (rated voltage of generator)

3.

Generator current is no less than 0.1Ie (rated current of generator)

3.14.3 Rotor-side Criterion


Rotor-side criterion comprises:
Rotor-side undervoltage criterion: Ur<Ur1zd
Where:
Ur is rotor voltage
Ur1zd is undervoltage setting [V_RotUV_LossExc_Gen]
Variable excitation voltage criterion: Ur < KrelXdzPUf0
Where:
Xdz=Xd+Xs, Xd is synchronous reactance of generator (per unit value)
Xs is equivalent reactance on system side connected with the generator (per unit value)
P is rated apparent power of generator (per unit value)
Uf0 is rated voltage of exciter during generator without load
Krel is reliability coefficient.
If Ur drops to zero or minus value suddenly during loss of excitation, the rotor under voltage
criterion will be met quickly before steady-state stability limit of the generator reaches. If Ur drops
to zero or reduces to a value gradually during loss of excitation, the variable excitation voltage
criterion will be reached. Excitation undervoltage or loss of excitation will cause out-of-step, and
then excitation voltage and output power of the generator will swing seriously. In this case, the

rotor under voltage criterion and the variable excitation voltage criterion will be met and withdrawn
periodically in general. So the excitation voltage element will revert with delay during out-of-step
condition while the impedance entering the steady state stability limit circle.

3.14.4 Logic Scheme


Three stages are equipped with loss-of-excitation protection: stage 1 is used to trip adopting
busbar-side undervoltage criterion, stage 2 is used to trip adopting generator terminal
undervoltage criterion, stage 3 is used to trip or alarm with long time delay.

configuring this stage, considering of security, it is strongly recommended that impedance criterion
should be used as well as undervoltage criterion rather than that only undervoltage (busbar or

2.

Boundary divides the impedance plane into left part L and right part R

3.

Reactance line divides the impedance plane into upper part U and lower part D

Considering lens and boundary comprehensively, the impedance plane is divided into four areas:
OL, IL, IR and OR. If the locus of impedance is passing through these four areas in sequence from
right to left or vice versa, and staying in each area for a moment longer than the setting, this case
is considered as power swing. The times of passing through are accumulated and the grand total
is considered as the times of pole sliding. When the grand total reaches its setting value,
out-of-step protection operates.
As to reactance line, if the impedance locus passes through the upper part U, the swing center is
considered outside the generator. If the locus passes through the lower part D, the swing center is
considered within the generator. Settings of times of pole sliding can be configured separately for
these two cases.
Out-of-step protection can be used either for alarm only or tripping. Minimum swing period which
can be identified by this protection is 120 ms.

3.16.1 Overvoltage Protection
Overvoltage protection is used as protection against stator overvoltage occurring in various
operation conditions. It will issue tripping command when the maximum phase-to-phase voltage at
the generator terminal is in excess of the setting. Voltage calculation is independent of the
variation of frequency. Two stages of overvoltage protection are equipped with PCS-985G for
tripping, stage 2 can also operate for alarming. Stage 2 of overvoltage protection can be used as
the no-load overvoltage protection, which can be disabled after the generator is connected into the
power system (controlled by the logic setting [En_CB_BlkOV2_Gen]). Figure 3.16-1 shows logic
diagram of overvoltage protection.

3.17 Over-excitation Protection


Over-excitation protection is used to prevent generator from damage due to over excitation. It
represents multiple of over excitation of generator. Besides, over excitation protection comprises
definite-time protection and inverse-time protection.
For generator, over-excitation protection calculates the voltage from generator terminal to
discriminate whether it is over excitation.

3.17.1 Definite-time Over-excitation Protection


Two stages are equipped for definite-time over-excitation protection, and one stage for alarm
purpose and one stage for trip purpose. Their time delays can be configured.
Multiple of over excitation n can be expressed as follows:
n Upu / Fpu

Where:
Upu is per unit value of voltage

Fpu is per unit value of frequency

and low power protection.

and tripping is needed, the steam valve of turbine has to be closed firstly. Sequence tripping
reverse power protection is used for this condition. Such protection is a reverse power protection
blocked by position contact of steam valve and circuit breaker of generator. It can trip relevant
circuit breaker with a certain delay since the steam valve being closed. Its setting range is

3.19 Frequency Protection


Frequency protection of generator comprises underfrequency and overfrequency protection.

3.19.1 Underfrequency Protection


When frequency is lower than setting value, underfrequency protection will operate to issue alarm
or trip if the accumulated time or once duration of under frequency operation reaches time delay.
This protection is blocked by position contact of circuit breaker and no current flag.
Three stages of underfrequency protection are equipped for PCS-985G. Stage 1 is usually
configured as accumulating frequency protection, and can be reset to zero only after erasing
reports. Stage 2 and stage 3 can be configured as continuous frequency protection.

3.20 Inadvertent Energization Protection


Inadvertent energization protection is also called unwanted closing protection is used for following
cases:
1.

In the course of generators hand turning (low frequency condition), if it has not been excited,
breaker closure by accident may lead to asynchronous starting of the generator. The
protection is put into use automatically with time delay t1 when two groups of voltage derived
from two independent VTs are all less than undervoltage setting and exit with time delay t2
(designed to cooperate with low-frequency blocking criterion) when the two groups of voltage
revert to normal level.

2.

In the case that generator breaker is closed by accident in excited condition but frequency is
under normal level which may occur in startup-and-shutdown process. The protection is put
into use automatically with time delay t3 while low-frequency criterion is met and returns with
time delay t4 after the frequency criteria releases. Here, t4 should be set as long as to ensure
the completion of tripping course.

3.

In the case that generator breaker is closed by accident in excited condition but frequency is
greater than the setting which may occur in startup-and-shutdown process. The protection is
put into use with time delay t3 and returns with time delay t4, which can be enabled or
disabled by logic setting, and is also controlled by position contact of circuit breaker. Here, t3
should coordinate with open time of circuit breaker, and t4 should be set as long as to ensure
the completion of tripping course.

Considering security of the protection, both currents from generator terminal and neutral point are
used in the logic as criteria.

3.21 Startup and Shutdown Protection


Protections functions that can reflect phase-to-phase fault and stator earth-fault are provided
during startup and shutdown process of generator.
For stator earth-fault, residual overvoltage protection is provided.
For phase-to-phase fault of generator, overcurrent protections of differential circuit or
low-frequency overcurrent protection is provided.
Since frequency during startup and shutdown process is usually very low, algorithm independent
of frequency is used for this protection.
Whether the protection should be blocked or not by frequency element or auxiliary contact of
circuit breaker can be determined by logic setting.

3.24 Breaker Failure Protection at Generator Terminal


When there is an internal fault of the generator, the protection operates to trip. If the circuit at
generator terminal or at HV side of main transformer fails, it needs to initiate breaker failure
protection and trip adjacent circuit breaker in time. Breaker failure protection uses the current from
generator terminal CT as auxiliary criterion.
The current auxiliary criterion can be phase overcurrent element or negative-sequence current
element.

3.25 CT Circuit Supervision


3.25.1 Three-phase Current Circuit Failure Alarm
The operation criterion is:
3I0 > 0.04 In+ 0.25Imax
Where:
3I0 is residual current
In is secondary rated current (1A or 5A).
Imax is maximum phase current.
If this criterion is met, CT circuit failure alarm will be issued with a time delay of 10s. Once the
condition reverts normal condition, the alarm will be reset with a time delay of 10s.

3.25.2 Differential Current Alarm in Differential Protection Circuit


This function is enabled only when relevant differential protection logic setting is set as enabled. If
the criterion is met, the alarm will be sent by delay 0.3s and corresponding differential protection
will not be blocked. When the differential current eliminates, the alarm will be reset by delay 1.2s.
In order to increase sensitivity of this alarm, percentage restraint differential current alarm criterion
is adopted as shown as below.
dI > di_bjzd
dI > kbj Ires
If the differential current reaches its threshold and reaches differential alarm level of percentage

3-60

PCS-985G Generator Relay


Date: 2013-06-28

3 Operation Theory

restraint factor multiplied by restraint current, the differential current alarm will be issued.
Where:
dI is differential current.
di_bjzd is threshold value of differential current alarm.
kbj is percentage coefficient of differential current alarm.
Ires is restrained current.

3.25.3 Alarm or Blocking to Differential Protection by CT Circuit Failure


Instantaneous CT circuit failure discrimination is equipped for differential protection. Only when
related logic setting and relevant enabling binary input of protection are set 1, the alarm or
blocking to instantaneous CT circuit failure discrimination will be enabled.
If an internal fault occurs, at least one of following four conditions will be present:
1.

Negative-sequence voltage at any side is greater than 2V

2.

Any phase current of a certain side increases after fault detector operating

3.

Maximum phase current is greater than 1.2Ie after fault detector operating

4.

At least three-phase currents increases after fault detector picks up

If none of above four conditions occurs within 40ms after differential protections fault detectors
picks up, the protection treats it as CT circuit failure. If the logic setting [Opt_CTS_Blk_PcntDiff_x]
(x can be Gen or Exc) is set as 1, the differential protection will be blocked and alarm will be
issued. If this logic setting is set as 0, the differential protection will trip and alarm will be issued
simultaneously.
If the alarm is issued, the signal can be removed only when the failure is removed and the device
is reset by manual.
Before the generator is connected to power grid, the blocking and alarm to CT circuit failure will be
disabled automatically.

3.26 VT Circuit Supervision


3.26.1 VT Circuit of Any Side Failure Alarm
The operation criterion is:
1.

Positive-sequence voltage is smaller than 18V and any phase current is greater than 0.04In

2.

Negative-sequence voltage 3U2 is in excess of 8V

If any one condition occurs, VT circuit failure alarm will be issued with a time delay of 10s, and the
alarm will be removed automatically by delay 10s when the failure is removed.

PCS-985G Generator Relay

3-61
Date: 2013-06-28

3 Operation Theory

3.26.2 Voltage Valance on Generator Terminals


When two groups of VT are equipped at generator terminal, VT circuit failure can be detected by
comparing phase voltage with positive sequence voltage of these two groups of VT.
Operation criterions are:
|UAB-Uab| >5V
|UBC-Ubc| >5V
|UCA-Uca| >5V
|U1 - U1| >3V
Where:
UAB, UBC, UCA and U1 are phase-to-phase voltage and positive sequence voltage of VT group 1.
Uab, Ubc, Uca and U1 are phase-to-phase voltage and positive sequence voltage of VT group 2.
If any condition mentioned above occurs, VT circuit failure alarm will be issued with delay 0.42s
and the VT group used will be switched.
When only a VT fails, it will not influence the function of related protection such as
loss-of-excitation, out-of-step, overvoltage, over-excitation, reverse power, frequency, impedance
protection and overcurrent protection.
If only one group of VT is provided at generators terminal, user can disable this function.

3.26.3 Three-phase Voltage Circuit Failure Supervision


Operation criterions are:
1.

Positive-sequence voltage (U1) is greater than 48V

2.

Calculated third harmonic residual voltage (3U0_3) is greater than k*U1.

k is percentage coefficient, and takes 0.2~0.5.


When the above criterions are met, corresponding alarm signal of VT circuit failure will be issued
with a time delay of 20s. The alarm signal will be removed automatically with a time delay of 20s
after the abnormality disappears.
For VT2 and other VTs, their percentage coefficient can be settable respectively and their failure
criterions are also enabled or disabled respectively.

3.27 Mechanical protection


Interfaces of mechanical protection such as thermo-technical protection, interruption of water
protection, excitation system protection and one spare mechanical protection are equipped for the
equipment. External protection equipments send those signals to PCS-985G to make the event
record and send alarm and maybe tripping command to relevant circuit breaker with delay. There
are eight binary inputs provided for those protections.

4 Supervision

4.1 Overview
Protection system is in quiescent state under normal conditions, and it is required to respond
promptly for faults occurred on power system. When equipment is in energizing process before the
LED HEALTHY is on, the equipment need to be checked to ensure no abnormality. Therefore,
the automatic supervision function, which checks the health of the protection system when startup
and during normal operation, plays an important role.
The numerical relay based on the microprocessor operations is suitable for implementing this
automatic supervision function of the protection system.
In case a defect is detected during initialization when DC power supply is provided to the
equipment, the equipment will be blocked with indication and alarm of relay out of service. It is
suggested a trial recovery of the equipment by re-energization. Please contact supplier if the
equipment is still failure.
When a failure is detected by the automatic supervision, it is followed by a LCD message, LED
indication and alarm contact outputs. The failure alarm is also recorded in event recording report
and can be printed if required.

4.2 Relay Self-supervision


4.2.1 Relay Hardware Supervision
The automatic supervision function can provide monitoring of all chips on protection DSP module
and fault detector DSP module to prevent any damaged or errors during the normal operation. The
alarm signals [Alm_DSP_ProtBrd] or [Alm_DSP_FDBrd] will be issued if any damages or errors
are detected and the device will be blocked.

4.2.2 Binary Output Supervision


The state of binary outputs of each BO module is continually monitored. If any abnormality is
detected, the alarm signals [Bxx.Alm_Output] will be issued with device being blocked (xx is the
slot No. of corresponding BO module).

4.2.3 Binary Input Supervision


The state of binary inputs detected by protection DSP module and fault detector DSP module
should be the same. Otherwise, the protective device will be blocked.

4.2.4 Setting Checking


This relay has 30 setting groups, while only one is active at the same time. The settings of active
setting group are checked to ensure they are reasonable. If settings are checked to be
unreasonable or out of setting scopes, a corresponding alarm signal will be issued, and the
protective device is blocked.

4 Supervision

4.2.5 Opto-coupler Power Supervision


Positive power supply of opto-coupler on each BI module is continuously monitored, and if a
failure or damage on the module is detected, then the alarm signal [Alm_PwrLoss_Opto1] or
[Alm_PwrLoss_Opto2] will be issued.

4.2.6 Fault Detector Element Supervision


If any fault detector picks up to trigger oscillography function, the corresponding binary input
changing report will be recorded in IO Events menu with operation report [FD_Prot] being
issued.
When fault detector in fault detector DSP module picks up, while the fault detector in protection
DSP module doesnt pick up, or fault detectors in protection DSP and fault detector DSP module
picks up continuously, equipment will issue abnormality alarm but not be blocked.

4.2.7 Test Mode Supervision


When protection equipment is in test mode the alarm signal [Alm_TestMode] is issued without
blocking equipment.

4.2.8 Hardware Configuration Supervision


Module configuration is checked automatically during equipment initialization, if plug-in module
configuration is not consistent to the design drawing of an applied-specific, the alarm signal
[Fail_BoardConfig] is issued with the equipment being blocked.

4.3 AC Circuit Supervision


4.3.1 Voltage and Current Drift Supervision and Auto-adjustment
The voltage and current drift are influenced by the variation of temperature or other environment
factors. PCS-985 can continually and automatically trace the drift value and adjust it to normal
value.

4.3.2 Sample Supervision


The device can provide monitoring of AC current and voltage samplings for protection DSP
module and fault detector DSP module. If the detected values are wrong or inconsistent, an alarm
[Alm_Sample_DSP] will be issued and the relay will be blocked.

4.4 Secondary Circuit Supervision


4.4.1 Current Transformer Supervision (CTS)
The CTS function will be always processed all the time. The CTS logic in the relay is designed to
detect the CT secondary circuit to ensure that current measurement is the actual value of power
system. The main purpose is to detect faults in the secondary circuits of CT and to avoid
influences on corresponding protection functions.

4 Supervision

Please refer to Section 3.31 for details.

4.4.2 Voltage Transformer Supervision (VTS)


The VTS function is also processed continuously. The VTS logic in the relay is designed to detect
the VT secondary circuit to ensure that voltage measurement is the actual value of power system.
When VT failure is detected, equipment can automatically adjust the configuration of protective
elements of which the stability would be affected and might lead to mal-operation.
Please refer to Section 3.32 for details.

4.5 Alarm Messages


PCS-985 can provide self-supervision of hardware circuit and device operation status. When any
abnormal condition is detected, the fault information or report can be displayed and a
corresponding alarm will be issued.
Note!
If alarm signal is issued with equipment being blocked, please try to make a fault diagnosis
by referring the issued alarm messages but not simply reboot or re-power the relay. If user
cannot find the failure reason on site, please inform the manufacturer or the agent for
maintenance.
All the alarm messages and relevant LED affections are listed in following table.

5.4 Event and Fault Recorder


5.4.1 Introduction
The PCS-985G is equipped with integral measurements, event, fault and disturbance recording
facilities suitable for analysis of complex system disturbances. The relay is flexible enough to allow
for the programming of these facilities to specific user application requirements and is discussed
below.

5.4.2 Event & Fault Records


The relay records and time tags up to 32 events and stores them in non-volatile (battery backed up)
memory. This enables the system operator to establish the sequence of events that occurred
within the relay following a particular power system condition, switching sequence etc. When the
available space is exhausted, the oldest event is automatically overwritten by the new one.
The real time clock within the relay provides the time tag to each event, to a resolution of 1ms. The
event records are available for viewing either via the front plate LCD or remotely, via the
communications ports (courier and MODBUS versions only).
Local viewing on the LCD is achieved in the menu column entitled REPORT. This column allows
viewing of event and fault records and is shown by setting sequence No. of the event or fault
report by user. Refer to Section 8 for details of operation method.

5.4.3 Type of Event


An event may be a change of state of a control input or output relay, an alarm condition and
operation reports of protection etc.

5.4.4 State Change of Binary Inputs


If one or more of the opto inputs has changed state since the last time that the protection algorithm
ran, the new status is logged as an event.
Please see Section 5.3 for details about the binary input signals.

5.4.5 Relay Alarm Signals


Any alarm signal generated by the relays will also be logged as individual events.
Please see Section 4.4 for details about the alarm signals.

5.4.6 Fault Detector Elements


The signal of fault detector indicates one protection element (or several protection elements) picks

5.5 Disturbance Record


The integral disturbance recorder has an area of memory specifically set aside for record storage.
The number of records that may be stored by the relay is dependent upon the selected recording
duration. The recorder of CPU board can typically store a minimum of 32 records, among them 8
records with instantaneous waveform. The record is composed of tripping element, faulty phase,
operation time and the waveform content is composed of differential currents, corrected current of
each side of generator or transformer, three-phase current of each side, residual current of each
side (if available), three-phase voltages, residual voltage of each side, negative sequence voltage
and tripping pulse.
The MON board can store up to 4 seconds (24 sampling points per cycle) or 8 seconds (12
sampling points per cycle) continual waveform, which including all channels analog quantities
(sampled data, differential currents and so on), all the binary input changing state, binary output,
pick up flags of fault detectors, alarm signals, operation signals and tripping signals. Disturbance
records continue to be recorded until the available memory is exhausted, at which time the oldest
record(s) are overwritten to make space for the newest one.
It is not possible to view the disturbance records locally via the LCD; they must be extracted using
suitable software such as PCS-PC.
The CPU board can also record latest 8 cycles of waveform in normal operation condition, which is

composed of three phases current, corrected current of each side for differential protection, three
phases voltage and residual voltage of each side. This function can help user to check the poles
correctness of secondary circuit by comparing the phase of related quantities shown in wave
figure.

PCS-985 adopts 32-bit microchip processor CPU as control core for logic calculation and
management function, meanwhile, adopts high-speed digital signal processor DSP to be in charge
of all the protection calculation. 24 points are sampled in every cycle and parallel processing of
sampled data can be realized in each sampling interval to ensure ultra-high reliability and safety of
protection equipment.
The working process of the device is as follows: firstly, the current and voltage is converted into
small voltage signal and sent to DSP module after being filtered and converted by AD for
protection calculation and fault detector respectively. When DSP module completes all the
protection calculation, the result will be sent to 32-bit CPU on MON module to be recorded.
Protection calculation DSP module carries out protection logic calculation, tripping output, and
MON module completes SOE (sequence of event) record, waveform recording, printing,
communication between protection and SAS and communication between HMI and CPU. The
work process of fault detector DSP module is similar to that of protection DSP module, and the
only difference is, when fault detector DSP module decides a fault detector picks up, only positive
power supply of output relay is switched on.
PCS-985 is comprised of intelligent modules, except that few particular modules position cannot
be changed in the whole device (PWR module and DSP module), the others like AI (analog input)
module such as AC current, AC voltage and etc., and BI/BO module such as binary input, tripping
output, signal output, and etc can be flexibly configured according to the remained slot positions.

6.2 Plug-in Module Terminal Definition


The device consists of power supply module, MON module, DSP module, AI module, BI module,
tripping output module, signal output module, input and output signal for mechanical relay. The
definition and application of each module and its terminal is introduced as follows:

6.2.1 PWR Plug-in Module (Power Supply)


PWR module (slot P1) is a DC/DC or AC/DC converter with electrical insulation between input and
output. It has an input voltage range as described in Chapter 2 Technical Data. The standardized
output voltages are +5V and +24V DC. The tolerances of the output voltages are continuously
monitored.
The +5V DC output provides power supply for all the electrical elements that need +5V DC power
supply in this device. The +24V DC output provides power supply for the static relays of this
device.
The use of an external miniature circuit breaker is recommended. The miniature circuit breaker
must be in the on position when the device is in operation and in the off position when the device is
in cold reserve.
A 12-pin connector is fixed on PWR module. The terminal definition of the connector is described
as below.

Note!

The standard rated voltage of PWR module is self-adaptive to 220Vdc or 110Vdc. For
non-standard rated voltage power supply module please specify when place order, and
check if the rated voltage of power supply module is the same as the voltage of power
source before the device being put into service.
PWR module provides terminal 12 and grounding screw for device grounding. Terminal 12
shall be connected to grounding screw and then connected to the earth copper bar of
panel via dedicated grounding wire.
Effective grounding is the most important measure for a device to prevent EMI, so effective
grounding must be ensured before the device is put into service.
PCS-985, like almost all electronic relays, contains electrolytic capacitors. These
capacitors are well known to be subject to deterioration over time if voltage is not applied
periodically. Deterioration can be avoided by powering the relays up once a year.

6.2.2 MON Plug-in Module (Monitor)


MON module (slot 01) consists of high-performance built-in processor, FLASH, SRAM, SDRAM,
Ethernet controller and other peripherals. Its functions include management of the complete
device, human machine interface, communication and waveform recording etc.
MON module uses the internal bus to receive the data from other modules of the device. It
communicates with the LCD module by RS-485 bus. This module comprises 100BaseT Ethernet
interfaces, RS-485 communication interfaces, PPS/IRIG-B differential time synchronization
interface and RS-232 printing interface.
Modules with various combinations of memory and interface are available as shown in the table
below.

The correct connection is shown in Figure 6.2-4. Generally, the shielded cable with two pairs of
twisted pairs inside shall be applied. One pair of the twisted pairs are respectively used to connect
the + and terminals of difference signal. The other pair of twisted pairs are used to connect
the signal ground of the communication interface. The module reserves a free terminal for all the
communication ports. The free terminal has no connection with any signal of the device, and it is
used to connect the external shields of the cable when connecting multiple devices in series. The
external shield of the cable shall be grounded at one of the ends only.

1.

Three-phase current channel 9 is measurement CT channel, it can be connected with


the measurement CT that used for reverse power protection.

2.

Traditional rotor earth-fault protection use the voltage channel of B22_23~B22_24


(Generator neutral point residual VT1)

3.

Rotor earth-fault protection with voltage injection adopts the following 2 channels:
1) B22_19~B22_20, residual current from neutral point;
2) B22_21~B22_22, from generator neutral point residual VT2.

4.

For rotor earth-fault protection with ping-pang type, NR1418 should be selected.
In NR1418, UR2+ should be connected to positive pole of rotor winding, and UR2should be connected to negative pole of rotor winding. UR2+ and UR2- are applied to
acquire the rotor voltage used for loss-of-excitation protection.

[I_SensTrvDiff_Gen]

Setting of this protection shall be higher than maximum unbalance current during normal operation
condition. Reliability factor can be more than 2. The setting value is usually:

I op 0.05 I f ln / na

Equation 7.4-5

Where:

I OP represents the setting [I_SensTrvDiff_Gen].

I f ln is primary rated current of generator and


na is ratio of residual CT of transverse differential protection.
Phase current restraint factor is a fixed coefficient in the program.
2.

[I_InsensTrvDiff_Gen]

This is the current setting of high-setting transverse differential protection.


It is equivalent to traditional transverse differential protection. Setting of this protection is as follows
which shall be higher than maximum unbalance current during external short circuit fault.

3.

[t_TrvDiff_Gen]

This is the delay of transverse differential protection (act on only after the occurrence of one-point
ground of rotor).
When one point earth fault occurs within rotor of generator and one point earth fault protection
operates, in order to prevent unwanted operation of transverse protection due to instantaneous
two points earth fault within the rotor, operation of this protection shall be delayed for 0.5 s 1 s.

Note!
When a turn-to-turn fault occurs, the equipment will trip relevant breakers without delay
according to the tripping output logic setting, but a time delay decided by user will act on
after occurrence of one-point ground of rotor.

This is the positive direction impedance setting of distance protection stage1. Here positive
direction means the direction is pointing to the transformer instead of generator itself.
If the value of this setting is greater than the next one, then the characteristic of distance protection
is set as excursive impedance circle; if it is equal to the next one, the characteristic is whole
impedance circle; if the next one is set as 0, the characteristic becomes directional impedance.
Generally, low impedance protection is considered as the backup protection of generator in case
that voltage-controlled overcurrent protection cannot satisfy the sensitivity requirement of
generator.
6.

[Z1_Rev_Gen]

Negative direction impedance setting of distance protection stage1. In general, this setting is set
as 5-10% of the positive direction impedance setting.
7.

[En_Mem_Curr_Gen]

That the setting is set as 1 indicates the excitation mode of generator is self shunt excitation
mode. In that case, the protection will remember the current value at the initiation of fault, and
operates based on it, no matter whether the current will decrease due to the descending excitation
voltage result from terminal voltages getting down when external fault occurs. Once this setting is
set as 1, the backup overcurrent protection of generator is always controlled by composite
voltage element.

Note!
In the above Tablecurrent used in backup protection of generator comes from the backup
current input channel.

Setting Explanation

1.

[V_SensROV_Sta]

This is the setting of fundamental residual overvoltage protection.


Setting of this protection U op shall be higher than maximum unbalance voltage U unb. max of single
phase VT at neutral point during normal operation.

U op K rel U unb. max

Equation 7.4-12

Where K rel is reliability factor, 1.21.3 generally; U unb. max is the maximum measured fundamental
unbalance residual voltage derived from single VT at the neutral point of generator.
To assure its security, user should check the transferred residual voltage through coupling
capacitance between HV side and LV side of transformer when external earth fault occurs on the
HV side of the transformer. Meanwhile, settings, including time delay and operation setting, should
be considered to cooperate with that of earth fault protection of the system.

Note!
The residual voltage used in this protection comes from VT at the neutral point of
generator.
2.

[V_InsensROV_Sta]

This is the setting of high-setting fundamental residual overvoltage protection.


Only residual voltage at neutral point is taken for high setting zone of fundamental residual voltage
protection. If ratio of VT on neutral point is nTVN

U gn
3

/100V , this setting is usually 20 V 25 V.

Residual voltage transferred by coupling capacitance per phase between HV and LV side windings
of step-up transformer shall be checked when external fault occurs at HV side of the transformer.
Coordination both on setting and delay between this protection and system earth fault protection
could be achieved then.

nTV 0 is ratio of open-delta residual voltage at the terminal of generator;
nTVN is ratio of residual VT on neutral point.
During incorporation of generator to power system, the ratio U 3T / U 3N

changes considerably

owing to variation of equivalent capacitive reactance at generator terminal. So two different


settings are designed for protection before and after connection of generator with system, and
these two settings can be switched over with alternation of contacts position of the terminal
breaker.
The setting shall be (1.3 1.5) before incorporation and (1.3 1.5) 2 after that.
Where 1 and 2 are the maximum real-measured third harmonic voltage ratio before and

Setting Explanation

This is the current setting of ground overcurrent protection. Cooperating with the criteria of
earthing resistance, residual current criteria acts as backup protection against earth fault within
80% of the stators winding apart from the terminal of generator. This criteria responses to the
current flowing thought the connection line between generator neutral point and the ground. This
setting can be set as:

Where:

U Nsec is secondary voltage of ground-transformer when single-phase metallic short circuit fault
occurs at the terminal of generator;

nCT is ratio of inter-CT connected at secondary side of ground-transformer;

This is voltage setting of residual voltage element for supervising the working condition of external

below the next one, it means the external power supply fails.
3.

[ANG_corr_InjEF_Sta]

Correction Angle to eliminate angle error of the CTs and angle distortions caused by a less than
ideal earthing or neutral transformer. The correct setting for this parameter can only be determined
with a primary test. The adjustment should be made for the tripping value.
4.

[R_InjEF_Sta]

The setting is used to compensate the resistance caused by the angle error of the CTs and angle
distortions caused by a less than ideal earthing or neutral transformer. The correct setting for this
parameter can only be determined with a primary test. The adjustment should be made for the
tripping value.
Note!
In large power units with generator circuit breaker, applications can be found where there
is some additional loading equipment on the low-voltage side of the unit transformer to
reduce the influence by the residual voltage when the generator circuit breaker is open.
The 20 Hz source is connected via the neutral transformer in the generator neutral point.
With the generator circuit breaker closed, the protection measures the loading resistance
on the unit transformer side, which can be mistaken for an earth resistance.

Out-of-step protection operates only when out-of-step occurs in power system. Then, based on
situation at that time, the dispatching center will adopt islanding, generator shutting or restraint and
other necessary measures. Only if center of oscillation situates within the generator or near the
generator, or the oscillation lasts too long, and phase difference of electro-motive force between
two sides of the breaker less than 90, this protection will trip.
Characteristic of this protection comprises three parts: lens part , boundary part and

8 Human Machine Interface

The operator can access the protective device from the front panel. Local communication with the
protective device is possible using a computer via a multiplex RJ45 port on the front panel.
Furthermore, remote communication is also possible using a PC with the substation automation
system via rear RS485 port or rear Ethernet port. The operator is able to check the protective
device status at any time.
This chapter describes human machine interface (HMI), and give operator an instruction about
how to display or print event report, setting and so on through HMI menu tree and display metering
value, including R.M.S. current, voltage, etc. through LCD. Procedures to change active setting
group or a settable parameter value through keypad are also described in details.

8.1 Overview
The human-machine interface consists of a human-machine interface (HMI) module which allows
a communication to be as simple as possible for the user. The HMI module helps to draw your
attention to something that has occurred which may activate a LED or a report displayed on the
LCD. Operator can locate the data of interest by navigating the keypad.

and the address relevant to IP address of Ethernet A. If all the sampling values of the voltage and
the current cant be fully displayed within one screen, they will be scrolling-displayed automatically
from the top to the bottom.
If the device has detected any abnormal state, it will display the self-check alarm information.

8.3.3 Display Disturbance Records


This device can store 64 disturbance records and 64 disturbance records with fault waveform.
When there is protection element operating, the LCD will automatically display the latest
disturbance record, and two kinds of LCD display interfaces will be available depending on
whether there are supervision events at present.
For the situation that the disturbance records and the supervision events coexist, the upper half
part is the disturbance record, and the lower half part is the supervision event. As to the upper half
part, it displays separately the record number of the disturbance record, fault name, generating
time of the disturbance record (with a format of yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss), protection element and
tripping element. If there is protection element operation, faulty phase and relative operation time
with reference to fault detector element are displayed. At the same time, if displayed rows of
protection element and tripping element are more than 3, a scroll bar will appear at the right. The
height of the black part of the scroll bar basically indicates the total lines of protection element and
tripping element, and its position suggests the position of the currently displayed line of the total

lines. The scroll bar of protection element and tripping element will roll up at the speed of one line
per time. When it rolls to the last three lines, it will roll from the earliest protection element and
tripping element again. The displayed content of the lower half part is similar to that of the upper
half part.
If the device has no the supervision event, the display interface will only show the disturbance
record.

9.1 Overview
This section outlines the remote communications interfaces of NR equipment. The protective
device supports a choice of three protocols via the rear communication interface (RS-485 or
Ethernet), selected via the model number by setting. The protocol provided by the protective
device is indicated in the menu SettingsDevice SetupComm Settings. Using the keypad
and LCD, set the parameter [Protocol_RS485A] and [Protocol_RS485B], the corresponding
protocol will be selected.
The rear EIA RS-485 interface is isolated and is suitable for permanent connection of whichever
protocol is selected. The advantage of this type of connection is that up to 32 protective devices
can be daisy chained together using a simple twisted pair electrical connection.
It should be noted that the descriptions contained within this section do not aim to fully detail the
protocol itself. The relevant documentation for the protocol should be referred to for this
information. This section serves to describe the specific implementation of the protocol in the relay.

9.2 Rear Communication Port Information


9.2.1 RS-485 Interface
This protective device provides two rear RS-485 communication ports, and each port has three
terminals in the 12-terminal screw connector located on the back of the relay and each port has a
ground terminal for the earth shield of the communication cable. Please refer to the section of
Communication Interface module for details of the connection terminals. The rear ports provide
RS-485 serial data communication and are intended for use with a permanently wired connection
to a remote control center.
9.2.1.1 EIA RS-485 Standardized Bus
The EIA RS-485 two-wire connection provides a half-duplex fully isolated serial connection to the
product. The connection is polarized and whilst the products connection diagrams indicate the
polarization of the connection terminals it should be borne in mind that there is no agreed
definition of which terminal is which. If the master is unable to communicate with the product, and
the communication parameters match, then it is possible that the two-wire connection is reversed.
9.2.1.2 Bus Termination
The EIA RS-485 bus must have 120 (Ohm) Watt terminating resistors fitted at either end
across the signal wires (refer to Figure 9.2-1). Some devices may be able to provide the bus
terminating resistors by different connection or configuration arrangements, in which case
separate external components will not be required. However, this product does not provide such a
facility, so if it is located at the bus terminus then an external termination resistor will be required.

9.2.1.3 Bus Connections & Topologies


The EIA RS-485 standard requires that each device is directly connected to the physical cable that
is the communications bus. Stubs and tees are expressly forbidden, such as star topologies. Loop
bus topologies are not part of the EIA RS-485 standard and are forbidden by it also.
Two-core screened cable is recommended. The specification of the cable will be dependent on the
application, although a multi-strand 0.5mm2 per core is normally adequate. Total cable length
must not exceed 500m. The screen must be continuous and connected to ground at one end,
normally at the master connection point; it is important to avoid circulating currents, especially
when the cable runs between buildings, for both safety and noise reasons.
This product does not provide a signal ground connection. If a signal ground connection is present
in the bus cable then it must be ignored, although it must have continuity for the benefit of other
devices connected to the bus. At no stage must the signal ground be connected to the cables
screen or to the products chassis. This is for both safety and noise reasons.
9.2.1.4 Biasing
It may also be necessary to bias the signal wires to prevent jabber. Jabber occurs when the signal
level has an indeterminate state because the bus is not being actively driven. This can occur when
all the slaves are in receive mode and the master is slow to turn from receive mode to transmit
mode. This may be because the master purposefully waits in receive mode, or even in a high
impedance state, until it has something to transmit. Jabber causes the receiving device(s) to miss
the first bits of the first character in the packet, which results in the slave rejecting the message
and consequentially not responding. Symptoms of these are poor response times (due to retries),
increasing message error counters, erratic communications, and even a complete failure to
communicate.
Biasing requires that the signal lines be weakly pulled to a defined voltage level of about 1V. There
should only be one bias point on the bus, which is best situated at the master connection point.
The DC source used for the bias must be clean; otherwise noise will be injected. Note that some
devices may (optionally) be able to provide the bus bias, in which case external components will
not be required.

9 Communication

NOTE!

It is extremely important that the 120 termination resistors are fitted. Failure to do so
will result in an excessive bias voltage that may damage the devices connected to the
bus.

As the field voltage is much higher than that required, NR cannot assume
responsibility for any damage that may occur to a device connected to the network as
a result of incorrect application of this voltage.

Ensure that the field voltage is not being used for other purposes (i.e. powering logic
inputs) as this may cause noise to be passed to the communication network.

9.2.2 Ethernet Interface


This protective device can provide four rear Ethernet interfaces (optional) and they are unattached
each other. Parameters of each Ethernet port can be configured in the submenu in the menu
SettingsDevice SetupComm Settings.
9.2.2.1 Ethernet Standardized Communication Cable
It is recommended to use twisted screened eight-core cable as the communication cable. A picture
is shown bellow.

Figure 9.2-2 Ethernet communication cable

9.2.2.2 Connections and Topologies


Each device is connected with an exchanger via communication cable, and thereby it forms a star
structure network. Dual-network is recommended in order to increase reliability. SCADA is also
connected to the exchanger and will play a role of master station, so the every equipment which
has been connected to the exchanger will play a role of slave unit.

9.2.3 IEC60870-5-103 Communication


The IEC specification IEC60870-5-103: Telecontrol Equipment and Systems, Part 5: Transmission
Protocols Section 103 defines the use of standards IEC60870-5-1 to IEC60870-5-5 to perform
communication with protective device. The standard configuration for the IEC60870-5-103
protocol is to use a twisted pair EIA RS-485 connection over distances up to 500m. It also supports
to use an Ethernet connection. The relay operates as a slave in the system, responding to
commands from a master station.
To use the rear port with IEC60870-5-103 communication, the relevant settings of the protective
device must be configured. To do this use the keypad and LCD user interface. In the menu
SettingsDevice SetupComm Settings, set the parameters [Protocol_RS485A],
[Protocol_RS485B], [Baud_RS485A] and [Baud_RS485B]. For using the Ethernet port with
IEC60870-5-103 communication, the IP address and submask of each Ethernet port can be set in
the same submenu. Please refer to the corresponding section in Chapter Settings for further
details.

9.3 IEC60870-5-103 Interface over Serial Port


The IEC60870-5-103 interface over serial port (RS-485) is a master/slave interface with the
protective device as the slave device. It is properly developed by NR.
The protective device conforms to compatibility level 3.
The following IEC60870-5-103 facilities are supported by this interface:

9.3.1 Physical Connection and Link Layer


Two EIA RS-485 standardized ports are available for IEC60870-5-103 in this protective device.
The transmission speed is optional: 4800 bit/s, 9600 bit/s, 19200 bit/s or 38400 bit/s.
The link layer strictly abides by the rules defined in the IEC60870-5-103.

9.3.2 Initialization
Whenever the protective device has been powered up, or if the communication parameters have
been changed, a reset command is required to initialize the communications. The protective
device will respond to either of the two reset commands (Reset CU or Reset FCB), the difference
is that the Reset CU will clear any unsent messages in the transmit buffer.
The protective device will respond to the reset command with an identification message ASDU 5,
the COT (Cause Of Transmission) of this response will be either Reset CU or Reset FCB
depending on the nature of the reset command.

9.3.3 Time Synchronization


The protective device time and date can be set using the time synchronization feature of the
IEC60870-5-103 protocol. The protective device will correct for the transmission delay as specified
in IEC60870-5-103. If the time synchronization message is sent as a send/confirm message then
the protective device will respond with a confirmation. Whether the time-synchronization message
is sent as a send confirmation or a broadcast (send/no reply) message, a time synchronization
class 1 event will be generated/produced.
If the protective device clock is synchronized using the IRIG-B input then it will not be possible to
set the protective device time using the IEC60870-5-103 interface. An attempt to set the time via
the interface will cause the protective device to create an event with the current date and time
taken from the IRIG-B synchronized internal clock.

9.3.4 Spontaneous Events


Events are categorized using the following information:

Type identification (TYP)

Function type (FUN)

Information number (INF)

Messages sent to substation automation system are grouped according to IEC60870-5-103


protocol. Operation elements are sent by ASDU2 (time-tagged message with relative time), and
status of binary Input and alarm element are sent by ASDU1 (time-tagged message). The cause of
transmission (COT) of these responses is 1.

9.3.5 General Interrogation


The GI can be used to read the status of the relay, the function numbers, and information numbers
that will be returned during the GI cycle. The GI cycle strictly abides by the rules defined in the
IEC60870-5-103.
Refer the IEC60870-5-103 standard can get the enough details about general interrogation.

9.3.6 General Functions


The generic functions can be used to read the setting and protection measurement of the relay,
and modify the setting. Two supported type identifications are ASDU 21 and ASDU 10. For more
details about generic functions, see the IEC60870-5-103 standard.

9.3.7 Disturbance Records


This protective device can store up to 64 disturbance records in its memory. A pickup of the fault
detector or an operation of the relay can make the protective device store the disturbance records.
The disturbance records are stored in uncompressed format and can be extracted by using the
standard mechanisms described in IEC60870-5-103.

9.4.2 Communication Profiles


The PCS-985G series relays supports IEC 61850 server services over TCP/IP communication
protocol stacks. The TCP/IP profile requires the PCS-985G series relays to have an IP address to
establish communications. These addresses are located in the submenu Settings->Device
Setup->Comm Settings.
1.

MMS protocol

IEC 61850 specifies the use of the Manufacturing Message Specification (MMS) at the upper
(application) layer for transfer of real-time data. This protocol has been in existence for a number
of years and provides a set of services suitable for the transfer of data within a substation LAN
environment. IEC 61850-7-2 abstract services and objects are mapped to actual MMS protocol
services in IEC61850-8-1.
2.

Client/server

This is a connection-oriented type of communication. The connection and communication activity


is initiated and controlled by the client. Substation computers running HMI programs or SOE
logging software are considered as IEC61850 clients. Substation equipment such as protection
relays, meters, RTUs, instrument transformer, tap changers, or bay control units are considered as
servers.
Please note that gateways can be considered as clients and servers subject to the communication
object. When retrieving data from IEDs within the substation, the gateways are considered as
servers whereas transmitting data to control centers, the gateways are considered as clients.
3.

Peer-to-peer

PCS-985G Generator Relay

9-7
Date: 2013-06-29

9 Communication

This is a non-connection-oriented, high speed type of communication usually between substation


equipment, such as protection relays. GOOSE is the method of peer-to-peer communication.
4.

Substation configuration language (SCL)

A substation configuration language is a number of files used to describe IED configurations and
communication systems according to IEC 61850-5 and IEC 61850-7. Each configured device has
an IED Capability Description (ICD) file and a Configured IED Description (CID) file. The
substation single line information is stored in a System Specification Description (SSD) file. The
entire substation configuration is stored in a Substation Configuration Description (SCD) file. The
SCD file is the combination of the following items: individual ICD files, SSD file, communication
system parameters (MMS, GOOSE control block, SV control block), as well as GOOSE/SV
connection relationship amongst IEDs.

9.4.3 MMS Communication Network Deployment


To enhance the stability and reliability of SAS, dual-MMS Ethernet is widely adopted. This section
is applied to introduce the details of dual-MMS Ethernet technology. Generally, single-MMS
Ethernet is recommended to be adopted in the SAS of 110kV and lower voltage levels, while
dual-MMS Ethernet is recommended to be adopted in the SAS of voltage levels above 110kV.
Client-server mode is adopted: clients (SCADA, control center and etc.) communicate with the
IEDs via MMS communication network, and the IEDs operate as the servers. IEDs are connected
to clients passively, and they can interact with the clients according to the configuration and the
issued command of the clients.
Three modes for dual-MMS Ethernet (abbreviated as dual-net) are provided as below.
Note! Hereinafter, the normal operation status of net means the physical link and TCP
link are both ok. The abnormal operation status of net means physical link or TCP link is
broken.

Figure 9.4-1 Dual-net full duplex mode sharing the RCB block instance

Net A and Net B share the same report control block (abbreviated as RCB) enabled by the client.
IED sends undifferentiated date through dual-net to the clients. If one net is physically
disconnected, the flag of RCB instance (i.e.: RptEna in above figure) is still true. Only when
both Net A and Net B are disconnected, the flag of the RCB instance will automatically change to
false.
In normal operation status of mode 1, IED provides the same MMS service for Net A and Net B. If
one net is physically disconnected (i.e.: Abnormal operation status in above figure), the working
mode will switch to single-net mode seamlessly and immediately. Network communication
supervision is unnecessary here, and Buffered Report Control Block (abbreviated as BRCB) need
not to be used. On the other net, date alternation works normally. Therefore, MMS service can
interact normally without interruption. This mode ensures no data loss during one net is in
abnormal operation status.
In mode 1, one report will be transmitted twice via dual nets for the same report instance, so the
client needs to distinguish whether two reports are same according to corresponding EntryIDs.

Figure 9.4-2 Dual-net hot-standby mode sharing the same RCB instance

In mode 2, the MMS service is provided on main MMS link, no MMS service interacts on the
standby MMS link. The definitions of two links are as follows:

Main MMS Link: Physically connected, TCP level connected, MMS report service available.

Standby MMS Link: Physically connected, TCP level connected, MMS report service not
available.

If the main net fails to operate (i.e.: Abnormal operation status in the above figure), the IED will
set RptEna to false. Meanwhile the client will detect the failure by heartbeat message or
keep-alive, it will automatically enable the RCB instance by setting RptEna back to true
through standby MMS link. By the buffer function of BRCB, the IED can provide uninterrupted
MMS service on the standby net. However, the differences of BRCB standards among different
manufacturers may cause data loss. Moreover, if duration of net switch is too long, the data loss is
positively as the capacity of BRCBs buffer function is limited.
Note! In mode 1 and mode 2, Net A IED host address and Net B IED host address must be
the same. E.g.: if the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0, network prefix of Net A is 198.120.0.0,
network prefix of Net B is 198.121.0.0, Net A IP address of the IED is 198.120.1.2, and
then Net B IP address of the IED must be configured as 198.121.1.2, i.e.: Net A IED host
address =1x256+2=258, Net B IED host address =1x256+2=258, Net A IED host address
equals to Net B IED host address.

In mode 3, IED provides 2 report instances for each RCB, Net A and Net B work independently
from each other, failures of one net will not affect the other net at all.
In this mode, 2 report instances are required for each client. Therefore, the IED may be unable to
provide enough report instances if there are too many clients.
Net A and Net B send the same report separately when they operates normally, To ensure no
repeated data is saved into database, massive calculation is required for the client.
Moreover, accurate clock synchronization of the IED is required to distinguish whether 2 reports
are the same report according to the timestamps. Clock synchronization error of the IED may lead
to report loss/redundancy.
As a conclusion:
In mode 2, its difficult to realize seamless switchover between dual nets;
In mode 3, the IED may be unable to provide enough report instances if too many clients are
applied on site.
For the consideration of client treatment and IED implementation, mode 1 (Dual-net full duplex
mode sharing the same report instance) is recommended for MMS communication network
deployment.

9.4.4 Server Data Organization


IEC61850 defines an object-oriented approach to data and services. An IEC61850 physical device
can contain one or more logical device(s) (for proxy). Each logical device can contain many logical
nodes. Each logical node can contain many data objects. Each data object is composed of data
attributes and data attribute components. Services are available at each level for performing
various functions, such as reading, writing, control commands, and reporting.

PCS-985G Generator Relay

9-11
Date: 2013-06-29

9 Communication

Each IED represents one IEC61850 physical device. The physical device contains one or more
logical device(s), and the logical device contains many logical nodes. The logical node LPHD
contains information about the IED physical device. The logical node LLN0 contains common
information about the IED logical device.
9.4.4.1 Digital Status Values
The GGIO logical node is available in the PCS-985G series relays to provide access to digital
status points (including general I/O inputs and warnings) and associated timestamps and quality
flags. The data content must be configured before the data can be used. GGIO provides digital
status points for access by clients. It is intended that clients use GGIO in order to access digital
status values from the PCS-985G series relays. Clients can utilize the IEC61850 buffered
reporting features available from GGIO in order to build sequence of events (SOE) logs and HMI
display screens. Buffered reporting should generally be used for SOE logs since the buffering
capability reduces the chances of missing data state changes. All needed status data objects are
transmitted to HMI clients via buffered reporting, and the corresponding buffered reporting control
block (BRCB) is defined in LLN0.
9.4.4.2 Analog Values
Most of analog measured values are available through the MMXU logical nodes, and metering
values in MMTR, the others in MMXN, MSQI and so on. Each MMXU logical node provides data
from an IED current/voltage source. There is one MMXU available for each configurable source.
MMXU1 provides data from CT/VT source 1(usually for protection purpose), and MMXU2 provides
data from CT/VT source 2 (usually for monitor and display purpose). All these analog data objects
are transmitted to HMI clients via unbuffered reporting periodically, and the corresponding
unbuffered reporting control block (URCB) is defined in LLN0. MMXUx logical nodes provide the
following data for each source:

MMXU.MX.Hz: frequency

MMXU.MX.PPV.phsAB: phase AB voltage magnitude and angle

MMXU.MX.PPV.phsBC: phase BC voltage magnitude and angle

MMXU.MX.PPV.phsCA: Phase CA voltage magnitude and angle

MMXU.MX.PhV.phsA: phase AG voltage magnitude and angle

MMXU.MX.PhV.phsB: phase BG voltage magnitude and angle

RSYN: Synchronism-check

RFLO: Fault location

The protection elements listed above contain start (pickup) and operate flags, instead of any
element has its own start (pickup) flag separately, all the elements share a common start (pickup)
flags PTRC.ST.Str.general. The operate flag for PTOC1 is PTOC1.ST.Op.general. For the
PCS-985G relays protection elements, these flags take their values from related module for the
corresponding element. Similar to digital status values, the protection trip information is reported
via BRCB, and it also locates in LLN0.
9.4.4.4 LLN0 and Other Logical Nodes
Logical node LLN0 is essential for an IEC61850 based IED. This LN shall be used to address
common issues for Logical Devices. Most of the public services, the common settings, control
values and some device oriented data objects are available here. The public services may be
BRCB, URCB and GSE control blocks and similar global defines for the whole device; the
common settings include all the setting items of communication settings, system settings and
some of the protection setting items, which can be configured to two or more protection elements
(logical nodes). In LLN0, the item Loc is a device control object, this Do item indicates the local
operation for complete logical device, when it is true, all the remote control commands to the IED
will be blocked and those commands make effective until the item Loc is changed to false. In
PCS-985G relays, besides the logical nodes we describe above, there are some other logical
nodes below in the IEDs:
MMXU: This LN shall be used to acquire values from CTs and VTs and calculate measurands
such as r.m.s. values for current and voltage or power flows out of the acquired voltage and

current samples. These values are normally used for operational purposes such as power flow
supervision and management, screen displays, state estimation, etc. The requested accuracy for
these functions has to be provided.
LPHD: Physical device information, the logical node to model common issues for physical
device.
PTRC: Protection trip conditioning, it shall be used to connect the operate outputs of one or
more protection functions to a common trip to be transmitted to XCBR. In addition or alternatively,
any combination of operate outputs of protection functions may be combined to a new operate
of PTRC.
RDRE: Disturbance recorder function. It triggers the fault wave recorder and its output refers
to the IEEE Standard Format for Transient Data Exchange (COMTRADE) for Power System (IEC
60255-24). All enabled channels are included in the recording, independently of the trigger mode.

9.4.5 Server Features and Configuration


9.4.5.1 Buffered/unbuffered Reporting
IEC61850 buffered and unbuffered reporting control blocks locate in LLN0, they can be configured
to transmit information of protection trip information (in the Protection logical nodes), binary status
values (in GGIO) and analog measured/calculated values (in MMXU, MMTR and MSQI). The
reporting control blocks can be configured in CID files, and then be sent to the IED via an
IEC61850 client. The following items can be configured.

TrgOps: Trigger options. The following bits are supported by the PCS-985G relays:
Bit 1: Data-change
Bit 4: Integrity
Bit 5: General interrogation

OptFlds: Option Fields. The following bits are supported by the PCS-985G relays:
Bit 1: Sequence-number
Bit 2: Report-time-stamp
Bit 3: Reason-for-inclusion
Bit 4: Data-set-name
Bit 5: Data-reference
Bit 6: Buffer-overflow (for buffered reports only)
Bit 7: EntryID (for buffered reports only)
Bit 8: Conf-revision
Bit 9: Segmentation

IntgPd: Integrity period.

BufTm: Buffer time.

9.4.5.2 File Transfer


MMS file services are supported to allow transfer of oscillography, event record or other files from
a PCS-985G device.
9.4.5.3 Timestamps
The Universal Time Coordinated (UTC for short) timestamp associated with all IEC61850 data
items represents the latest change time of either the value or quality flags of the data item
9.4.5.4 Logical Node Name Prefixes
IEC61850 specifies that each logical node can have a name with a total length of 11 characters.
The name is composed of:

A five or six-character name prefix.

A four-character standard name (for example, MMXU, GGIO, PIOC, etc.).

A one or two-character instantiation index.

Complete names are of the form xxxxxxPTOC1, where the xxxxxx character string is configurable.
Details regarding the logical node naming rules are given in IEC61850 parts 6 and 7-2. It is
recommended that a consistent naming convention be used for an entire substation project.
9.4.5.5 GOOSE Services
IEC61850 specifies the type of broadcast data transfer services: Generic Object Oriented
Substation Events (GOOSE). IEC61850 GOOSE services provide virtual LAN (VLAN) support,
Ethernet priority tagging, and Ether-type Application ID configuration. The support for VLANs and
priority tagging allows for the optimization of Ethernet network traffic. GOOSE messages can be
given a higher priority than standard Ethernet traffic, and they can be separated onto specific
VLANs. Devices that transmit GOOSE messages also function as servers. Each GOOSE
publisher contains a GOOSE control block to configure and control the transmission.
The GOOSE transmission (including subscribing and publishing) is controlled by GOOSE logic link
settings in device.
The PCS-985G relays support IEC61850 Generic Object Oriented Substation Event (GOOSE)
communication. All GOOSE messages contain IEC61850 data collected into a dataset. It is this
dataset that is transferred using GOOSE message services. The GOOSE related dataset is
configured in the CID file and it is recommended that the fixed GOOSE be used for
implementations that require GOOSE data transfer between PCS-985G relays.
IEC61850 GOOSE messaging contains a number of configurable parameters, all of which must be
correct to achieve the successful transfer of data. It is critical that the configured datasets at the
transmission and reception devices are an exact match in terms of data structure, and that the
GOOSE addresses and name strings match exactly.

10.1 Overview
The device must be shipped, stored and installed with the greatest care.
Choose the place of installation such that the communication interface and the controls on the
front of the device are easily accessible.
Air must circulate freely around the equipment. Observe all the requirements regarding place of
installation and ambient conditions given in this instruction manual.
Take care that the external wiring is properly brought into the equipment and terminated correctly
and pay special attention to grounding. Strictly observe the corresponding guidelines contained in
this section.

10.2 Safety Information


Modules and units may only be replaced by correspondingly trained personnel. Always observe
the basic precautions to avoid damage due to electrostatic discharge when handling the
equipment.
In certain cases, the settings have to be configured according to the demands of the engineering
configuration after replacement. It is therefore assumed that the personnel who replace modules
and units are familiar with the use of the operator program on the service PC.
DANGER! Only insert or withdraw the PWR module while the power supply is switched
off. To this end, disconnect the power supply cable that connects with the PWR module.
WARNING! Only insert or withdraw other modules while the power supply is switched off.

WARNING! The modules may only be inserted in the slots designated in Section 6.2.
Components can be damaged or destroyed by inserting boards in the wrong slots.
DANGER! Improper handling of the equipment can cause damage or an incorrect
response of the equipment itself or the primary plant.
WARNING! Industry packs and ribbon cables may only be replaced or the positions of
jumpers be changed on a workbench appropriately designed for working on electronic
equipment. The modules, bus backplanes are sensitive to electrostatic discharge when
not in the unit's housing.
The basic precautions to guard against electrostatic discharge are as follows:

Should boards have to be removed from this relay installed in a grounded cubicle in an HV
switchgear installation, please discharge yourself by touching station ground (the cubicle)
beforehand.

PCS-985G Generator Relay

10-1
Date: 2013-05-29

10 Installation

Only hold electronic boards at the edges, taking care not to touch the components.

Only works on boards that have been removed from the cubicle on a workbench designed for
electronic equipment and wear a grounded wristband. Do not wear a grounded wristband,
however, while inserting or withdrawing units.

Always store and ship the electronic boards in their original packing. Place electronic parts in
electrostatic screened packing materials.

10.3 Checking Shipment


Check that the consignment is complete immediately upon receipt. Notify the nearest NR
Company or agent, should departures from the delivery note, the shipping papers or the order be
found.
Visually inspect all the material when unpacking it. When there is evidence of transport damage,
lodge a claim immediately in writing with the last carrier and notify the nearest NR Company or
agent.
If the equipment is not going to be installed immediately, store all the parts in their original packing
in a clean dry place at a moderate temperature. The humidity at a maximum temperature and the
permissible storage temperature range in dry air are listed in Chapter Technical Data.

10.4 Material and Tools Required


The necessary mounting kits will be provided, including screws, pincers and assembly
instructions.
A suitable drill and spanners are required to secure the cubicles to the floor using the plugs
provided (if this relay is mounted in cubicles).

10.5 Device Location and Ambient Conditions


The place of installation should permit easy access especially to front of the device, i.e. to the
human machine interface of the equipment.
There should also be free access at the rear of the equipment for additions and replacement of
electronic boards.
Since every piece of technical equipment can be damaged or destroyed by inadmissible ambient
conditions, such as:
1.

The location should not be exposed to excessive air pollution (dust, aggressive substances).

2.

Severe vibration, extreme changes of temperature, high levels of humidity, surge voltages of
high amplitude and short rise time and strong induced magnetic fields should be avoided as
far as possible.

3.

Air must not be allowed to circulate freely around the equipment.

The equipment can in principle be mounted in any attitude, but it is normally mounted vertically

In the case of equipment supplied in cubicles, place the cubicles on the foundations that have
been prepared. Take care while doing so not to jam or otherwise damage any of the cables that
have already been installed. Secure the cubicles to the foundations.

10.7 Electrical Installation and Wiring


10.7.1 Grounding Guidelines
Switching operations in HV installations generate transient over voltages on control signal cables.
There is also a background of electromagnetic RF fields in electrical installations that can induce
spurious currents in the devices themselves or the leads connected to them.
All these influences can influence the operation of electronic apparatus.
On the other hand, electronic apparatus can transmit interference that can disrupt the operation of
other apparatus.
In order to minimize these influences as far as possible, certain standards have to be observed
with respect to grounding, wiring and screening.
NOTE! All these precautions can only be effective if the station ground is of good quality.

10.7.2 Cubicle Grounding


The cubicle must be designed and fitted out such that the impedance for RF interference of the
ground path from the electronic device to the cubicle ground terminal is as low as possible.
Metal accessories such as side plates, blanking plates etc., must be effectively connected
surface-to-surface to the grounded frame to ensure a low-impedance path to ground for RF
interference. The contact surfaces must not only conduct well, they must also be non-corroding.

10 Installation

NOTE! If the above conditions are not fulfilled, there is a possibility of the cubicle or parts
of it forming a resonant circuit at certain frequencies that would amplify the transmission
of interference by the devices installed and also reduce their immunity to induced
interference.
Movable parts of the cubicle such as doors (front and back) or hinged equipment frames must be
effectively grounded to the frame by three braided copper strips (see Figure 10.7-1).
The metal parts of the cubicle housing and the ground rail are interconnected electrically
conducting and corrosion proof. The contact surfaces shall be as large as possible.
NOTE! For metallic connections please observe the voltage difference of both materials
according to the electrochemical code.
The cubicle ground rail must be effectively connected to the station ground rail by a grounding strip
(braided copper).

10.7.3 Ground Connection on the Device


There is a ground terminal on the rear panel, and the ground braided copper strip can be
connected with it. Take care that the grounding strip is always as short as possible. The main thing
is that the device is only grounded at one point. Grounding loops from unit to unit are not allowed.
There are some ground terminals on some connectors of this relay, and the sign is GND. All the
ground terminals are connected in the cabinet of this relay. So, the ground terminal on the rear
panel (see Figure 10.7-2) is the only ground terminal of this device.

10.7.4 Grounding Strips and their Installation


High frequency currents are produced by interference in the ground connections and because of
skin effect at these frequencies, only the surface region of the grounding strips is of consequence.
The grounding strips must therefore be of (preferably tinned) braided copper and not round copper
conductors, as the cross-section of round copper would have to be too large.
Proper terminations must be fitted to both ends (press/pinch fit and tinned) with a hole for bolting
them firmly to the items to be connected.
The surfaces to which the grounding strips are bolted must be electrically conducting and
non-corroding.
The following figure shows the ground strip and termination.

11 Commissioning

11.1 Overview
This relay is fully numerical in their design, implementing all protection and non-protection
functions in software. The relay employs a high degree of self-checking and in the unlikely event of
a failure, will give an alarm. As a result of this, the commissioning test does not need to be as
extensive as with non-numeric electronic or electro-mechanical relays.
To commission numerical relays, it is only necessary to verify that the hardware is functioning
correctly and the application-specific software settings have been applied to the relay.
Blank commissioning test and setting records are provided at the end of this manual for
completion as required.
Before carrying out any work on the equipment, the user should be familiar with the contents of the
safety and technical data sections and the ratings on the equipments rating label.

The insulation resistance should be greater than 100M at 500V.


Test method:
To unplug all the terminals sockets of this relay, and do the Insulation resistance test for each
circuit above with an electronic or brushless insulation tester.
On completion of the insulation resistance tests, ensure all external wiring is correctly reconnected
to the protection.
11.5.1.3 External Wiring
Check that the external wiring is correct to the relevant relay diagram and scheme diagram.
Ensure as far as practical that phasing/phase rotation appears to be as expected.
Check the wiring against the schematic diagram for the installation to ensure compliance with the
customers normal practice.
11.5.1.4 Auxiliary Power Supply
The relay only can be operated under the auxiliary power supply depending on the relays nominal
power supply rating.
The incoming voltage must be within the operating range specified in Chapter Technical Data,
before energizing the relay, measure the auxiliary supply to ensure it within the operating range.
Other requirements to the auxiliary power supply are specified in Chapter Technical Data. See
this section for further details about the parameters of the power supply.
WARNING! Energize this relay only if the power supply is within the specified operating
ranges in Chapter Technical Data.

11.5.2 With the Relay Energized


The following groups of checks verify that the relay hardware and software is functioning correctly
and should be carried out with the auxiliary supply applied to the relay.
The current and voltage transformer connections must remain isolated from the relay for these
checks. The trip circuit should also remain isolated to prevent accidental operation of the
associated circuit breaker.

11.5.2.2 Date and Time


If the time and date is not being maintained by substation automation system, the date and time
should be set manually.
Set the date and time to the correct local time and date using menu item Clock.
In the event of the auxiliary supply failing, with a battery fitted on CPU board, the time and date will
be maintained. Therefore when the auxiliary supply is restored the time and date will be correct
and not need to set again.
To test this, remove the auxiliary supply from the relay for approximately 30s. After being
re-energized, the time and date should be correct.
11.5.2.3 Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs)
On power up, the green LED HEALTHY should have illuminated and stayed on indicating that
the relay is healthy.
The relay has latched signal relays which remember the state of the trip, auto-reclose when the
relay was last energized from an auxiliary supply. Therefore these indicators may also illuminate
when the auxiliary supply is applied. If any of these LEDs are on then they should be reset before
proceeding with further testing. If the LED successfully reset, the LED goes out. There is no testing
required for that that LED because it is known to be operational.
It is likely that alarms related to voltage transformer supervision will not reset at this stage.
11.5.2.4 Testing HEALTHY and ALARM LEDs
Apply the rated DC power supply and check that the HEALTHY LED is lighting in green. We
need to emphasize that the HEALTHY LED is always lighting in operation course except that the
equipment find serious errors in it.
Produce one of the abnormal conditions listed in Chapter Supervision, the ALARM LED will
light in yellow. When abnormal condition reset, the ALARM LED extinguishes.
11.5.2.5 Testing AC Current Inputs
This test verified that the accuracy of current measurement is within the acceptable tolerances.
Apply rated current to each current transformer input in turn; checking its magnitude using a
multimeter/test set readout. The corresponding reading can then be checked in the relays menu.
The measurement accuracy of the protection is 2.5% or 0.02In. However, an additional allowance
must be made for the accuracy of the test equipment being used.
NOTE! The closing circuit should remain isolated during these checks to prevent
accidental operation of the associated circuit breaker.

11.5.3 Print Fault Report


In order to acquire the details of protection operation, it is convenient to print the fault report of
protection device. The printing work can be easily finished when operator presses the print button
on panel of protection device to energize binary input [BI_Print] or operate control menu. What
should be noticed is that only the latest fault report can be printed if operator presses the print
button. A complete fault report includes the content shown as follows.
1) Trip event report
2) Binary input when protection devices start
3) Self-check and the transition of binary input in the process of devices start
4) Fault wave forms compatible with COMTRADE
5) The setting value when the protection device trips

11.5.4 On-load Checks


The objectives of the on-load checks are:

Confirm the external wiring to the current and voltage inputs is correct.

Measure the magnitude of on-load current and voltage (if applicable).

Check the polarity of each current transformer.

However, these checks can only be carried out if there are no restrictions preventing the
tenderization of the plant being protected.

If it has been necessary to disconnect any of the external wiring from the protection in order to
perform any of the foregoing tests, it should be ensured that all connections are replaced in
accordance with the relevant external connection or scheme diagram. Confirm current and voltage
transformer wiring.

11.6 Final Checks


After the above tests are completed, remove all test or temporary shorting leads, etc. If it has been
necessary to disconnect any of the external wiring from the protection in order to perform the
wiring verification tests, it should be ensured that all connections are replaced in accordance with
the relevant external connection or scheme diagram.
Ensure that the protection has been restored to service.
If the protection is in a new installation or the circuit breaker has just been maintained, the circuit
breaker maintenance and current counters should be zero. If a test block is installed, remove the
test plug and replace the cover so that the protection is put into service.
Ensure that all event records, fault records, disturbance records and alarms have been cleared
and LEDs has been reset before leaving the protection.
