Transformer Protection Tutorial

Application 2
Consider the autotransformer given below. The power transformer data has been
given: 175/175/30 MVA Autotransformer, YNyn0d1, 230/115/13.8 kV. The
current transformer ratios are as follows: HV CT ratio - 800/5, LV CT ratio 1200/5 and TV CT ratio 2000/5.

1. Calculate the ratio correction factors.


2. Verify that the differential protection does not operate due to errors
introduced by the on load tap changer. Consider a dual slope relay as
follows:
Iop = Is1, (Ibias Is1/K1)
Iop = K1 Ibias, (Is1/K1 Ibias Is2)
Iop = K1 Is2 + K2 (Ibias - Is2), (Ibias Is2)

Is1 = 0.2pu, K1 = 30%, K2 = 80%, Is2 = 1pu


3. Draw (a) the bias characteristic, (b) the CT and on load tap changer errors
(assume 20% total error), (c) differential and bias currents considering on
load tap changer errors and the characteristic knees (There are 2 knees as it is
a dual slope characteristic.)

Solution Application 2
1. Ratio correction factors
Since the transformer has an on load tap changer on the HV side, the nominal
voltage of the HV winding must be set to the mid tap voltage level. According
to the nameplate data, the mid tap voltage is 218.5kV. The mid tap voltage can
also be calculated as follows:

2. Errors introduced by the on load tap changer.


To check that the differential protection does not misoperate due to errors
introduced by the on load tap changer, the user may perform the following
calculations.
Transformer nominal rating

Calculate HV full load current at both tap extremities and LV and TV full load
current.

Determine Idiff at both tap extremities (with mid tap correction).


LV corrected current = 1.366 3.033 = 4.143
TV corrected current = 0.273 3.138 = 0.857
Idiff at tap 1 = 4.524 4.143 0.857 = 0.476 A =

Idiff at tap 19 = 5.588 4.143 0.857 = 0.588 A =

currents used in the Ibias calculation are the currents after ratio and vector
correction.

Determine relay differential current.


Iop = Is1, (Ibias Is1/K1)
Iop = K1 Ibias, (Is1/K1 Ibias Is2)
Iop = K1 Is2 + K2 (Ibias - Is2), (Ibias Is2)
Ibias at tap 1 is less than 1 pu and greater than 0.667 pu; since Is2 is set to 1pu,
Iop is calculated as follows:
Iop = 0.3 0.9524 = 0.286pu
Ibias at tap 19 is greater than 1pu; since Is2 is set to 1pu, Iop is calculated as
follows:
Iop = 0.3 1 + 0.8 (1.059 - 1) = 0.347pu

Check Idiff < Iop by a 10% margin for each tap extremity and adjust Is1
and/or K1 as necessary.
Tap 1: Since Idiff = 0.095pu and 0.9Iop = 0.9 x 0.286 = 0.257pu, the error
introduced by the on load tap changer causes no mal operation considering K1 =
30% and Is1 = 0.2pu.
Tap 19: Since Idiff = 0.118pu and 0.9Iop = 0.9 x 0.347 = 0.312pu, the error
introduced by the on load tap changer causes no mal operation considering K1 =
30%, Is1 = 0.2pu, K2 = 80% and Is2 = 0.8pu.
66.7% of transformer nominal rating

Calculate HV, LV and TV load current at 66.7% of the nominal MVA rating.
The 66.7% is the interception between Is1 and K1. It is determined as Is1/K1
100% = (0.2/0.3) 100 = 66.7%.

HV full load current on tap 1 (5%) = 0.667

Determine relay differential current.


Iop = Is1, (Is1/K1 Ibias)
Iop = K1 Ibias, (Is1/K1 Ibias Is2)
Iop = K1 Is2 + K2 (Ibias - Is2), (Ibias Is2)

Ibias at tap 1 is less than 0.667 pu; then Iop = 0.2pu


Ibias at tap 19 is less than 1 pu and greater than 0.667pu; since Is2 is 1pu, Iop is
calculated as follows:
Iop = 0.3 0.706 = 0.212pu

Check Idiff < Iop by a 10% margin for each tap extremity and adjust Is1
and/or K1 as necessary:
Tap 1: Since Idiff = 0.063 pu and 0.9Iop = 0.9 x 0.2 = 0.18pu, then there is
sufficient safety margin with K1 = 30% and Is1 = 0.2 pu.
Tap 19: Since Idiff = 0.0786pu and 0.9Iop = 0.9 x 0.212 = 0.19pu, then there is
sufficient safety margin with K1 = 30% and Is1 = 0.2 pu.
The following graph shows the bias characteristic, the CT and tap changer errors
(assumed as 20%), and the bias, differential coordinates corresponding to full
load current and 66.7% of full load current. It can also be seen that it is
necessary to check the safety margin at the two knee-points of the bias
characteristic.
