  • A Partial Discharge Detection Method for SF6Insulated Inverted Current Transformers Adopting Inner Shield Case as UHF Sensor

    A partial discharge (PD) detection method for SF6insulated inverted current transformers (SIICTs) adopting an inner shield case as an ultra-high frequency (UHF) sensor is proposed in this paper. The inner shield case is a component of the SIICT. Its structure is similar to that of an antenna and can be used as a UHF sensor to measure the PD UHF signal. A 110 kV current transformer is used as an experimental object and the voltage standing-wave ratio of the inner shield case is calculated. The validity and sensitivity of this method are proved by experiments with ac voltage. This PD detection method solves the problem that the UHF sensor is difficult to mount inside current transformers and provides a novel method for PD detection of SIICTs.

  • Correlation between hot-spot temperature and aging factor of oil-immersed current transformers

    Effect of a variable and continuous load on top-oil (TOT) and hot-spot (HST) temperature rise and in turn, on aging of mineral-oil-immersed transformers has been well studied. Detailed loading procedures covered in relevant IEEE Standard serve utilities manage critical assets in the form of power and distribution transformers. Current transformers (CT) have neither been specifically addressed nor independently studied. Due to a significantly different electromechanical design and in particular lower volume of oil, it is necessary to check the thermal characteristics of a CT against existing general guidelines. A state-of-the-art technology using optical fibers was employed for direct measurement of HST at various load profiles. Results indicate a significant difference between HST reference value in standards and the experimentally obtained value for CTs. Moreover, accelerated aging factors for CTs appear to be different from those calculated by using the standards for power and distribution transformers.

  • Impacts of Superconducting Cables on the Dynamic Response of Current Transformers and Protective Relaying Devices

    Replacing conventional ac transmission lines with superconducting cables provides performance advantages since superconducting cables have lower series inductance and very low ac resistance. However, the very low resistance will also have an impact on the dynamic response of current transformers (CTs) and on the response of protective relays that process their current measurements. Whenever a short circuit occurs on an ac power system the resulting current will have both fundamental frequency ac response and a decaying dc offset. The amplitude of the dc offset is dependent on the point on the ac voltage wave where the fault occurs, which is random. The rate of this decay depends on the R-L time constant of the ac circuit involved in the current path. A larger time constant increases the odds that a CT will enter saturation. Superconducting cables will increase the R-L time constant, and potentially increase the severity of CT saturation, creating error in the secondary current used by the protective relays. For many protection functions this error will delay the protective action, but in a few cases it may cause circuit breakers to trip in error. This paper will model a sample system with differing levels of penetration of superconducting cables and look at the impact of the superconducting cables on the dynamic CT response and on different protective relay functions and discuss potential solutions.

  • Online partial discharge detection in HV cables using conventional current transformers

    This paper investigates the performance of conventional current transformer for online partial discharge detection in high voltage cables. It is based on the frequency response of such current transformers. The frequency behaviour was investigated using a simulation package (Powersim) by varying parameters including core permeability, stray capacitance, core material etc. Experimental investigation was also conducted on a 33 KV 200/5A current transformer. Simulation and experimental results are presented and compared in this paper.

  • A nonlinear model for the estimation of the primary current in current transformers

    The measurement of the current in industrial electrical devices is often carried out by resorting to the use of current transformers. The reliability of these devices is compromised when the measured current is higher than the nominal value, due to the saturation and hysteresis effects of the magnetic core. In this paper, a nonlinear model of the current transformer is identified by means of a separable least squares technique. This model is successfully employed for the estimation of the primary current starting from experimental measures of the distorted current.

  • High frequency modeling of protection / measurement current transformers for partial discharge detection

    This paper investigates the choice of using preinstalled protection and measurement current transformers (CTs) for the detection of high frequency partial discharge (PD) signals in medium voltage cables by conducting frequency response analysis (FRA) of these CTs and by frequency response modeling. Researchers have developed many high frequency models, mainly for the transient behavior of CTs. While the energy of the high frequency signals in these models is very high, the energy content associated with PDs is very low. The transformer core behavior will be different in both cases and, as far as the authors could ascertain, there is little information on the FRA of such CTs for low energy high frequency input. A high frequency model of the current transformer is presented. The Jiles-Atherton model is used to analyse the behavior of the CT core in a high frequency partial discharge environment. A method for obtaining model parameters such as parasitic capacitances, leakage inductance, winding resistance, and iron loss component is proposed.
