Protective Relay Maintenance, Solid-State (PRMSS)

Protective Relay Maintenance, Solid-State

COURSE OVERVIEW

Through proper maintenance and testing, technicians can help ensure the integrity of the protection system and ensure service continuity. This intensive hands-on course is designed specifically for test technicians responsible for the setting, testing, and calibration of solid-state protective relays. The somewhat specialized testing procedures used to test and calibrate these relays will be fully addressed through valuable theoretical operating explanations and rigorous lab exercises.

The participant will learn the basics of substation 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. 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.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This intensive hands-on course is designed specifically for test technicians responsible for the setting, testing, and calibration of solid-state protective relays.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

The Protective Relay Maintenance Solid State course is an intensive, hands-on, lab oriented class covering:

  1. Sync Check Relay (25)
  2. Voltage Relays (27/59)
  3. Directional Power (32R)
  4. Overcurrent (50/51)
  5. Directional Overcurrent (67)
  6. Transformer Differential (87T)
Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:
  • Identify the type of relay and its functions
  • Interpret internal and external AC and DC schematics.
  • Properly connect a relay test set to the relay for testing purposes.
  • Perform the field tests and calibrate the tested relay as necessary
  • Properly interpret test results and take corrective action if necessary
  • Understand test forms and keep proper records.

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 solid-state relays. This certification is valid for 3 years from the date of issue.
