duration. The main cause of these voltage surges in power system are due to lightning impulses and switching impulses of the system. But over voltage in the power system may also be caused by, insulation failure, arcing ground and resonance etc. The voltage surges appear in the electrical power system due to switching surge, insulationFile Size: KB. This work presents an extension of our previous work on voltage stress analysis of a 3 MVA, 33/11 kV, 3-phase, 50 Hz, Dyn 11 transformer against the application of standard and non-standard Author: Bjørn Gustavsen. Surge protection. One of the major effects of lightning strike on electrical and electronic equipment is a high voltage surge. A surge is caused by the lightning discharge when the associated current tries to find a path to ground. A surge need not be due to a direct strike alone but can happen due to a strike on a nearby structure.   The specifications of the transformers are KVA, KV/ KV/50Hz. The primary (High Tension) side of the transformer is DELTA connected (3 phase, 3 wire system) with 33 KV input and secondary (Low Tension) side of the transformer is STAR connected with the star point grounded via neutral (3 phase, 4 wire system) with V output.

  Resonance; Switching surge: The over voltages produced on the power system due to switching are known as switching surge. If the traveling waves hit the windings of a transformer or generator it may cause considerable damage. (Zinc) cylinders, for example let’s assume the lightning arrester is designed for 11 or 33 kV. Reply. th Avenue North, Largo, FL () Products Defined by You, Refined by Beckwith GENERATOR PROTECTION Fundamentals and Application San Francisco Chapter Electrical Workshop: Measurement, Safety, and Protection. distribution systems with voltages above 1 kV and generally applied up to and including 52 kV(1). For technical and economic reasons, the service voltage of medium voltage distribution networks rarely exceeds 36 kV. The connection of an electrical installation to a MV utility distribution network. This paper presents a practical case study where a transformer-feeder circuit consisting of / kV autotransformer and kV cable was energised resulting in resonant overvoltages.

An excessive number of protections may also be harmful, since, even if they operate correctly in the case of a fault, they can operate in an untimely way when there is no fault, causing more or less widespread disturbance and out-of-order conditions, sometimes more damaging than the faults themselves, as the cause cannot be found (even. The tap changer function in the transformer is to regulate the voltage level. This is done by either adding or removing turns from the secondary transformer winding. It is the most complex part of the transformer and also an important one. Even the smallest fault results in the wrong power output [6]. The PN number is usually between 28 to File Size: KB.
