This online protective relay testing seminar follows Chris Werstiuk (author of The Relay Testing Handbook) as he shows you the basic skills you need to test any digital relay with any modern test-set. Watch this series of videos on any device with speakers or headphones, and a high-speed internet connection. The videos are broken down into logical chunks that you can watch at any time, and in any order, so that you can fit this series into your busy schedule.
Traditional relay testing plans are laser focused on the relay’s protective elements like inverse time overcurrent (51) or line distance protection (21). Many relay test plans start by re-configuring a digital relay to make it operate like an electro-mechanical relay, and then apply electro-mechanical relay test procedures to record a pickup and timing results. The relay is reconfigured during the test procedure for every element until all of the enabled elements are tested. This is a great way to get results for a test sheet and the test routines make sense in an electro-mechanical relaying world because electro-mechanical relays can be calibrated. Modern digital protective relays do not have these adjustments and simply do not fail in the same way that electro-mechanical relays do. So why are we performing the same kinds of tests?
Chris Werstiuk (author of The Relay Testing Handbook) spent most of his relay testing career finding mistakes in digital relays that, at best, caused confusion for operating personnel and, at worst, prevented the relay from operating at all for any fault. His testing procedures started like the ones described above, but they evolved over time as he found new mistakes that prevented a relay from operating correctly. Chris began finding more and more errors in relay settings as his test plans changed to become more realistic, and he often found problems in relays that were in-service for years that would never operate because they had been tested using electro-mechanical procedures. Most of these problems are obvious if you know where to look, and the test plan described in this seminar can be faster, more efficient, and more effective than traditional test plans.
This seminar explains how to test protective relays using Chris’ decades of relay testing experience and nearly a decade of relay testing training to make smarter test plans hat are more effective and more efficient than traditional test plans.
We cover the following information using a variety of relays and test-sets for every topic
