SYNOPSIS

Of the three types of shunt faults - three-phase, phase- and earth-faults - the most complicated is the earth fault due to the different methods of earthing the neutral.

There are two approaches how to calculate the earth fault current:
The first is a relatively straightforward use of formulas to compute the single-phase fault current for the following cases:
1. A solidly earthed Dyn transformer or generator
2. A Dyn transformer or generator earthed through a neutral earthing resistor
3. A YNd main transformer with a ZN neutral earthing transformer

The alternative in-depth approach is to consider the symmetrical components and the connection of the sequence networks for various types of faults. This is the icing on the cake that will enable the learner to understand the following:
1. Why the earth fault current, Ia = 3I0 ·
2. Why the equivalent earth fault impedance, Ze = ⅓ (2Z1Th + Z0Th)
3. Why the Thevenin zero sequence impedance excludes the zero sequence data upstream
    of a Dyn transformer
4. The flow of the sequence and phase currents in a system with a neutral earthing transformer

Objectives

1. To reintroduce three old friends – the per unit system, Thevenin’s theorem and symmetrical components
    or The Romance of the Three Sisters.
2. To breathe new life into old formulas and to transform old equations into meaningful entities, which can
    then be related to Ohm’s law for a clearer understanding
3. To be able to make simple, quick and reasonably accurate estimates of the results of power system studies


Session 4 on Load Flow & Motor Starting Analysis at 9.30 – 11.30 am on 22 August 2020
