Power Protection Trainer (EST-EPP03)
This training system has been designed to provide the students with a fully comprehensive knowledge in Electrical Power Engineering systems. The trainer is composed of a set of modules for the simulation of the various subsystems forming a complete electrical power system, from power generation to energy utilization.
POWER PROTECTION TECHNIQUES
- In electrical power supply systems, currents and voltages are constantly measured and monitored to ensure that they remain within certain limits.
- In general, the current and voltage values are so high that they cannot be measured directly and special transformers have to be used to reduce these values to a level which can be measured safely and economically.
- In this laboratory single and three-phase current and voltage transformers are studied.
- In cases of short-circuit, for instance, the very high fault currents produced can destroy parts of the system and could often even endanger the lives of humans.
- For these reasons, special protection systems, which must react quickly and reliably in the event of faults, have been developed in the area of electrical power distribution.
- In this laboratory a number of protective relays are analyzed: under/over voltage time relays, definite time over-current relays, inverse time over-current relays, earth-fault relays, etc.).
