  • Surge protection of communication equipments for power line communication: Effects on communication signal

    The effect on the communication signal by Zener Diodes (ZDs) when connected as surge protection devices in coupling circuits for power line communication (PLC) against common mode and differential mode electrical surges on the power line channel is investigated. Unlike the conventional mode of providing differential mode surge protection only, common mode surge protection was introduced as well. This was done by introducing the grid grounding system to the conventional mode of protection. The results show that with common mode surge protection included, the received signal is attenuated and there is signal drop at certain critical frequency. The ZDs have no significant effect on the received signal when used in the differential mode.

  • Failure risk prediction using artificial neural networks for lightning surge protection of underground MV cables

    Lightning surge is actually being considered as one of the most dangerous events in power distribution systems. Basically, it hits the overhead distribution line then propagates to the other network components, such as underground cables and transformers. Due to lightning strokes, insulation failure of such components could occur. The failure risk can be determined on the basis of network configuration, its parameters, and surge arresters data. The determination of this index can greatly help in optimizing the network surge protection. The implementation of an artificial neural network (ANN) for prediction of the failure risk for underground medium-voltage cables connected to overhead distribution lines is introduced. The main advantage of ANN actually is the time and effort savings due to the random nature of the problem and extended calculation process. The calculation of the failure risk using ANN is applied to a group of industrial surge arresters. The results of the ANN test coincide with the analytical ones.

  • Ungrounded Lightning Surge Protection Device for Wireless Sensor Networks Node in the Wilderness

    The maintenance free remote monitoring character of wireless sensor networks (WSN) node in the wilderness demands ungrounded lightning surge protection. In this paper, a protection device with functions of low frequency surge cutting off and RF signal passing is designed, in which discharge circuit consists of three-level surge by-pass circuit, the antenna outer conductor and the circuit board copper clad. The current capacity, the start time and the output voltage meet the requirements of surge protection for weak current device. The discrete components that undertake protective effect were involved in impedance matching calculation. The parameters of discrete components were estimated and adjusted constantly at test stage to insure the inserted protection device impedance matching with the node RF transceiver module and antenna. The experimental results show that the node with the ungrounded protection device can pass the fourth level surge immunity experiments and have run of 49 months in Xinjiang coal fire area outdoor monitoring site.

  • Design of effective surge protection circuits for an active EMI filter

    An effective design method of surge protection circuits for an active EMI filter (AEF) is proposed. The overcurrent and overvoltage at the voltage-sense voltage-compensate type AEF due to a surge is analyzed, and protection circuits using the transient voltage suppression (TVS) diodes are designed. Effects of protection circuits are validated by a 2kV surge test. Performances of the AEF for the noise attenuation are also measured by a vector network analyzer (VNA), and the AEF performances after employing the protection circuits are compared.

  • Surge protection for explosion hazard areas: Principles for ex-proof device

    All electrical equipment needs special characteristics to installation in explosion hazard areas. These requirements are necessary to avoid an explosion caused by electrical current. Surge Protection Devices (SPD) are designed to conduct surge currents created by lightning discharges and switching operations. When the SPD are installed in explosion hazard areas, they need to fulfill two different requirements. Conduct the surge currents, avoiding the ignition in the explosive atmosphere.

  • Surge protection for low voltage power supplies in case of direct lightning strikes - testing of complete systems

    The latest generation of surge protective devices protects sensitive electronic equipment even in case of impulse currents and impulse voltages resulting from direct lightning strokes. Modern arresters should influence the power supply of downstream consumers the least possible. Laboratory tests at complete installations or parts of installations are a possibility to prove the efficiency of such protection devices. Also the performance of installation parts flown through by partial lightning currents can be examined in laboratory tests. The following paper will introduce test procedures by means of application examples in telecommunications and railway engineering, which allow to prove the lightning current carrying capability of system components, the continuity of supply for the system and equipment protection, even at direct lightning currents. These engineering and test services performed in the laboratories of the manufacturer of the SPDs provide a valuable contribution to proving the efficiency of the lightning and surge protective measures.

  • Voltage Surge Protection Circuit for Superconducting Bias Coil

    In some circumstances, a superconducting dc magnetizing coil with a magnetic core may be subject to a large induced voltage surge due to coupling with other coils or a sudden break/close of its circuit. For instance, the superconducting bias coil in a saturated iron-core type fault current limiter may experience a huge induced voltage when a short-circuit fault takes place in the power grid. These events may result in damage of the coil or other elements in the circuit. Therefore, it is important to have a measure for protecting the superconducting coil from large voltage surges. We designed a circuit configuration that is capable of suppressing voltage surges on the dc superconducting coil and has no adverse effect on the coil's normal magnetizing capacity. Experiments were carried out to verify the validity of the design. In this paper, we introduce the protective circuitry and its work principle. We also report the experimental results which are in a good agreement with theoretical calculations.
