Classifications of different types of fault: balance and unbalance fault. Definition of the symmetrical components: positive, negative and zero sequence. Fault analysis and calculations based on the symmetrical components. The concept of instrument transformers, current transformer (CT) and voltage transformer (VT), purpose of using these types in the electrical network and its construction. Instrument transformers secondary connection, their standard limits and the proper way of grounding. Classifications of the instrument transformers based on their applications and standards will also be discussed. Definition of ratio and phase errors of the instrument transformers will be introduced.

Power System Protection Lab/EPE 463
The required test of the instrument transformers, current transformer (CT) and voltage transformer (VT)  are given: polarity test, ratio test, isolation test and continuity test. The characteristics of  different types of over current and earth fault relays (Electromechanical and static relays). The feeder protection relay which is used to protect the underground cables based on pilot principle is connected and tested. Characteristics of the transformer percentage biased differential relay and its use in protecting the power transformer is also tested to check the operation in different conditions. Sensitive Earth Fault Relay (MCSU01) which is used to protect the network from the high resistance fault is given in this lab. The characteristics of definite time and inverse time overvoltage relays is checked for MVTU12 AND MVTD12 relays, respectively. Finally, the instantaneous over current and earth fault relay and their applications of increasing the security of the electrical network is given in this lab.
