Enhance Your Power System Protection With Negative Sequence Relaying

Theory - Power Systems Engineering - PEguru

In the realm of protective relaying, overcurrent protection is the simplest and an essential scheme. Phase and residual protection are quite common in the industry. Phase elements should be set carefully so as to afford protection for equipment downstream of it while not limit the load current in anyway. Residual currents can be set more sensitive than phase relays since they do not limit the load current. Between these two, it is easy to forget the negative sequence protection.
