Tutorial #1 Fault Calculation
2nd Semester 2014-2015

Question # 1:
Consider the radial system shown in Fig. Q1. This contains five buses that are supplied from a 50Hz, 11 kV supply. With respect to the figure, the system has the following parameters:
Z s1 Z s 2 0.242 j 2.42 , Z s 0 0.0017 j 0.1
Z 12 0.242 j 2.42 , = Z 34 Z s1 , Z 23 0.121 + j 1.21 , Z 45 0.29 + j 2.89
Z ij Z ij , Z ij Z ij0 3Z ij

Calculate the 3-phase fault, line-to-ground fault, and L-L fault at each bus.

Question # 2:
For the system shown in Fig. 2, and starting from the data that are given, calculate the three-phase
and single-line-ground fault in Amperes at the Buses 3, 2, and 1 using:
a. The Ohmic method referring the system to the 115 kV bus.
b. The per-unit method.
