Synchronous machines generators, motors, or compensators with terminal-fed static exciters do not contribute to I k in the case of a short-circuit at the terminals of the machine, but they contribute to l k if there is an impedance between the terminals and the short-circuit location.

Example HV breaker ratings in the device library Figure 4: The values of positive-sequence and negative-sequence impedances can differ from each other only in the case of rotating machines. Factor q may also be obtained from figure In meshed networks there are several direct-current time constants. This ie factor shall not be introduced for unit transformers of power station units see 3.

Impedances 2, between the starpoint of transformers and earth are to be introduced as 3 2, into the zero-sequence system without a correction factor. Read an Excerpt Excerpt 1: Short-circuit current-limiting reactors shall be treated as a part of the short-circuit impedance. The zero-sequence short-circuit impedance at the short-circuit location F is obtained according to figure 5c, if an a. ie

For phase TCC clipping and tick marks, EasyPower automatically selects the asymmetrical currents for low voltage circuit breakers, fuses and electromechanical relays. Subtransient impedances are used for rotating machines with the impedance correction factors. NOTE For some 609009 short circuits the value of id. Short Circuits in Power Systems: In a system of low voltage breakers with ZSI, when the current through any circuit breaker exceeds the short time pickup its restraining signal is sent to upstream circuit breakers.


Transformer secondary short circuits. Calculation of a Cable 8. Transformers in Parallel Electrical equipment may be overstressed due to the short-circuit duration. Description Reflecting the changes to the all-important short circuit calculations in three-phase power systems according to IEC standard, this new edition of the practical guide retains its proven and unique concept of explanations, calculations and real-life examples of short circuits in electrical networks.

This part of IEC deals with the calculation of short-circuit currents in the case of balanced or unbalanced short circuits. Transformer Impedance Correction Factors The transformer correction factor K T for two winding units with or without on-load tap changer LTC is calculated as follows per section 3.

This method applies the 1. It is not necessary for the product 1, Calculation with Impedance Corrections For high voltage circuit breakers, the peak current is compared with the making capacity and the breaking current is compared with the rated breaking capacity. Characterization of short circuits and their currents Steady-state short-circuit current I k Steady-state short-circuit current I k is calculated based on section 4.

For large transformers the resistance is so small that the impedance may be assumed to consist only of reactance when calculating short-circuit currents. The three impedance correction factors given in equation 13 shall be introduced also to the negative-sequence and to the zero-sequence systems of the three-winding transformer.

They do not contribute to the symmetrical short-circuit breaking current I, and the steady-state short-circuit current I k. From the calculated initial symmetrical short-circuit current and characteristic curves of the fuses or current-limiting circuit- breakers, the cut-off current is determined, which is the peak short-circuit current of isc downstream substation.

For per unit or other similar unit systems, no transformation is necessary if these systems are coherent, i.

For balanced and unbalanced short circuits as shown in figure 3, it is useful to calculate the short-circuit currents by application of symmetrical components see 2.


The calculation of the three-phase peak short-circuit current i, applies to the line conductor and to the instant at which the greatest possible short-circuit current exists. The resistance is to be considered if the peak short-circuit current ip or the d. Permissions Request permission to reuse content from this site.

Figure 20 describes this situation with balanced and unbalanced short circuits with earth connection at the short-circuit location F. Peak current based on method c: Radial Network Earthing and protection against electric shock IEC Impedances between a starpoint and earth shall be introduced without correction factor.

Calculated Values You can obtain the following values of short-circuit currents at the fault location for both maximum and minimum short circuit currents: I librarian researcher I design engineer safety engineer ci Q7 Please assess the standard in the I following categories, using testing engineer ci the numbers: For undated references, the latest edition of the normative document referred to applies.

The need for the calculation of minimum short-circuit currents may arise because of underexcited operation of generators low-load condition in cable systems or in systems including long overhead lines, hydro pumping stations. The following features are supported: EasyPower uses the following c factors as the default for maximum and minimum short-circuit conditions.

These values cannot be used when calculating the aperiodic component id. In this standard it is calculated using a factor m for the time- dependent heat effect of the d. The equations 46 and 47 are given for the calculation of and in figure 3c:
