Online Course 1-2: Phasor Drawings for Relay Testers (4 NETA CTDs)

Phasor diagrams are your one-stop-shop for understanding an electrical system at a glance. You’d think that all of the relay test-sets, phase-angle meters, and relays would use the same angle systems to communicate this important information to prevent confusion. Unfortunately, you’d be wrong.

Imagine you’re testing an SEL relay using a Doble test-set and RTS software and you set up a simple three-phase, balanced, metering test (ABC). Each device would display the following angles during a typical meter test:

  1. A-Phase voltage = 0 degrees, B-Phase voltage = 120 degrees, C-Phase voltage = 240 degrees
  2. A-Phase voltage = 0 degrees, B-Phase voltage = -120 degrees, C-Phase voltage = 120 degrees
  3. A-Phase voltage = 0 degrees, B-Phase voltage = 240 degrees, C-Phase voltage = 120 degrees

Can you confidently match the angle system to the device? (Write down your answers and click to compare {RTS = ?, SEL = ?, Doble = ?})

RTS = 1, SEL = 2, Doble = 3

 

If you don’t know the difference between devices, you won’t be able to:

  • Perform a meter test properly (more on meter tests in the future)
  • Create effective test-plans
  • Troubleshoot test-plan problems

Can you believe that there is a fourth angle system out there we haven’t mentioned yet?

This course will introduce you to phasors and show you how to convert waveform drawings into phasor drawings so that you can understand what phasors are and how they are created.  You will be able to understand what is happening inside your relay and test-set with these topics:

  • What are Phasors?
  • How to Draw Phasor Diagrams
  • Drawing Phasors with Lagging Angles
  • Drawing Phasors with Different Scales

In a perfect world, these four lessons would be all you needed to become a phasor drawing master. You would be a master at understanding and drawing phasor diagrams in Megger test-sets and GE SR relays but, unfortunately, it seems every manufacturer has a different system for the angles in phasor drawings.  The remaining lessons in this course will help you understand all of the different angle systems used by test-sets from Doble, Omicron, and Manta Test Systems as well as the angle systems used by GE UR and SEL relays:

  • Draw Phasors with Positive Angles
  • Draw Phasors with Negative Angles
  • Draw Phasors with Positive and Negative Angles

You get immediate access to the course if you pay with a credit card. All of our online courses include:

  • High-quality video presentations introducing you to theory behind the topic to help you understand how it works
  • Real-world examples that show you how to apply the theory
  • Interactive exercises and quizzes that simulate the most realistic situations possible to help you learn by doing
  • A comment section where you can ask your questions and get your answers from instructors or fellow students

    Anyone who loves to be a relay engineer, Chris is the guy who can teach you so well, who can make you be what you wanted to be as a relay engineer.

    He is Second to none when it comes to teaching about relays. He is the Guru :)

    In order to clarify already understood concepts and learn new ones in order to make themselves a more confident and reliable relay tester and commissioning tech. Also to be able to mentor in the correct manner to hopefully eliminate some of the so many bad habits of testers in the industry.

    For people who feel they may know some details about relay testing but get confused by the different phase angles and phase rotation. It clears up the differences and opens your eyes to the need to be careful when trying to figure out phase rotation.

    How did the course help you?
    Totally understanding how to deal with the phasor diagrams which I do need to test and commission protection relays
    How do you feel about relay testing now?
    Much easier to test
    Why should someone take this course?
    It will help you to improve the testing skills much more than only practicing with no scientific knowledge

    If you don’t have any experience about relay testing, this will be little bit hard to understand. However, in my case, I just watched this course so many times before relay testing and now, I can go on right way to do it with confidence. This is really valuable for your carrier as relay tester.

    A Relay Course Evaluation

    How did you feel about testing relays before the course?
    I have never experienced before and just did bench top relay testing.
    How did the course help you?
    increase my knowledge regarding protection relay world and now I did my first job of SEL-700G for FAT testing.
    How do you feel about relay testing now?
    Very exciting and there are lots of fun and interests.
    Why should someone take this course?
    to verify their knowledge with other expert. since sometimes, they are very stubborn and tend to believe their experience.

    A Relay Course Evaluation

    I’ve done enough coursework in my life in various disciplines and trade crafts to have forgotten some of them. In all of my studies, I have rarely met an instructor who knew their material better, delivered it more clearly and effectively, or who obviously enjoyed teaching their subject more. His class helped me understand relay testing at a level far above what I knew before I took it. It would be difficult to overstate the value of his classes.
