Proper protection is needed to isolate the faulted region from the rest of the network. When multiple protective devices are installed in series, they have certain characteristics, that provide a specific operating order. Relay coordination study is important in protection system design. It must ensure fast, selective, and reliable relay operation to cut off the faulted sections of the power system. The main goal of protective relay coordination is to obtain selectivity without losing quick fault clearance time and sensitivity.
In this course, you will learn about the essentials of electrical protection design, relay coordination, and measurement devices used for relaying. Real-life examples will be shown to help you understand the most prevalent issues faced, and how to solve them. After the course, you will understand everything that must be known about relay coordination in low voltage networks.
Calculations will be performed with a power system modeling software EA-PSM Electric. Learn more about the software.
