|Title:||A new fault detection method for single-phase autoreclosing|
|Author:||de Mattos, LMN|
|Abstract:||Single-phase autoreclosing (SPAR) is among the alternatives for mitigating the many harmful effects that a line-to-ground fault in a transmission line (TL) may cause. This procedure basically consists of opening the compromised phase, waiting a preset time span (dead time), and recomposing the previously isolated phase. In the vast majority of SPAR implementations, the open phase switching proceeds with no guarantee of whether the TL is still faulted. Switching the open phase into a fault might represent a more severe threat to the system than simply disconnecting the TL in the first place. Hence, in an effort to ensure higher levels of operational reliability to SPAR, the present paper offers a new methodology to check the soundness of the open phase during the dead time before its reclosing. First, the method's fundamental concepts are exposed. Second, a huge number of steady-state tests are presented, for which both the system topology and its operative condition were varied. To conclude, the SPAR is simulated in the time-domain with the most critical condition found in the steady-state analysis. The proposed strategy was capable of correctly identifying whether the system was faulted in every performed simulation|
