WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This hands-on course is designed for test technicians and other persons involved in setting, testing, and diagnosing microprocessor-based relays that protect distribution feeders and buses.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Describe the application, components and operating principles of the relays.
  • Interpret external wiring connection and internal schematic diagram.
  • Demonstrate the necessary calibration adjustments.
  • Determine the equipment and software necessary to communicate with relays, and the communication parameters.
  • Perform the following relay element tests and interpret the results
    • Instantaneous and Time Overcurrent
  • Positive Sequence (50/51P)
  • Residual (50/51N)
  • Zero Sequence (50/51G)
  • Negative Sequence (50/51Q)
    • Under and Overvoltage (27/59)
    • Frequency (81)
    • Transformer Differential Elements (87)

REQUIREMENTS

The student should have basic knowledge of AC/DC electricity. In addition, students must bring a scientific calculator and a laptop to complete the lab portion that has Windows XP/Vista/7, 600+ MHz processor, 4+GB hard drive space, 1+GB RAM, a CD-rom drive, and rights to install relay communications software.  Note: IPads and tablets without a CD-rom or USB port are not acceptable.

Relays used in lab exercise will be, SEL -351, SEL-387, Multilin SR-750, and Multilin SR-745.
