Protective Relay Maintenance, Basic (PRMB)

Protective Relay Maintenance, Basic

COURSE OVERVIEW

The Protective Relay Maintenance Distribution course is an intensive, hands-on, lab oriented presentation. The participant will learn the basics of distribution protection combined with hands-on, realistic training on actual relays. Laboratory exercises will cover proper relay maintenance, specific test procedures, and detailed adjustment and calibration procedures utilizing state of the art relay test sets. Class participants will understand applicable NETA testing standards, what test result information should be recorded, and what hand tools are necessary for proper relay adjustment and calibration.

This course is available in Spanish.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This course is intended for electricians, technicians and engineers responsible for the testing, maintenance and calibration of relays that protect distribution feeders, transformers, buses, and loads.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

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

  • Understand how the relay is applied in the power system
  • Identify critical relay components
  • Understand how to effectively use manufacturer’s instruction literature to correctly interpret internal and external AC and DC relay schemes
  • Understand standard tests to be performed on the relay
  • Perform specified tests on, and calibrate the following relays to manufacturer’s specifications (ANSI device number):
    • Instantaneous and Time Overcurrent (50/51)
    • Directional/Controlled Overcurrent (67)
    • Bus Differential (87B)
    • Transformer Percentage Differential with Harmonic Restraint (87T)
    • Targets and Indicators

REQUIREMENTS

The student should have basic knowledge of AC/DC electricity. In addition, students must bring a scientific calculator. Technicians that successfully complete this course will be Certified to maintain electromechanical relays that protect industrial feeders, transformers and loads. This certification is valid for 3 years from the date of issue.
