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:
RTS = 1, SEL = 2, Doble = 3
If you don’t know the difference between devices, you won’t be able to:
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:
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:
