This course will familiarize participants with the different concepts related to Power Systems Protection. This course is divided into three parts. Part-1 deals with the basics of power systems protection, that include nature of faults, qualities and basic principles of protection, and the components of protection. Part -II deals with the function, operation and classification of Relays. Finally, Part -III deals with the setting of protection relay. By the end of this course participants will be able to: Explain the significance of power system protection Define the nature of faults Explain a few abnormal conditions arising from different types of faults Explain the essential qualities of protection Explain the operation of Protective relay Classify and discuss each type of relay Electromagnetic Relay Static Relay Numerical Relay.
