Protective Relay Maintenance, Generation (PRMG)

Protective Relay Maintenance, Generation

COURSE OVERVIEW

Participants will learn the basics of generator protection combined with hands-on training using 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. Participants learn the applicable NETA testing standards, what test result information should be recorded and what hand tools are necessary for proper relay adjustment and calibration.

Understanding proper relay maintenance procedures will ensure that the generator and prime mover are protected from damage and are operating within prescribed boundaries. This course provides the understanding of generator protective zones and their associated protective relays.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This course is developed to challenge test technicians who want to thoroughly understand generator and unit protection and the testing, calibration, and maintenance of generator protective relays.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

The Protective Relay Maintenance Generation course is an intensive, hands-on, lab oriented presentation covering:  

  1. Voltage controlled and voltage restrained overcurrent (27/51)
  2. Reverse Power (32)
  3. Loss of Field or Loss of Excitation (40)
  4. Negative Sequence (46)
  5. Generator Differential (87G)
Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:
  • Identify generator relay components and understand their operation
  • Interpret AC and DC internal and external drawings and schematics for the relay
  • Understand relay settings and calculate test parameters based on those settings
  • Know how to connect a relay test set to the relay to properly perform necessary tests
  • Perform standard field tests and properly calibrate any components that are out of tolerance
  • Properly record and evaluate test results

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 generators. This certification is valid for 3 years from the date of issue.
