Construction of Sequence Network in Power System

Construction of Sequence Network in Power System: Before sections the Sequence Network of various Power System elements synchronous machines, transformers and lines have been given. Using these, the Construction of Sequence Network in Power System can be explained. To start with, the positive Sequence Network in Power System is constructed by examination of the one-line …

Sequence Impedance and Networks of Transformers

Sequence Impedance and Networks of Transformers: It is well known that almost all present day installations have three-phase transformers since they entail lower initial cost, have smaller space require­ments and higher efficiency. The positive sequence series impedance of a transformer equals its leakage impedance. Since a transformer is a static device, the leakage impedance does …

Zero Sequence Impedance of Transmission Line

Zero Sequence Impedance of Transmission Line: Zero Sequence Impedance of Transmission Line – A fully transposed three-phase line is completely symmetrical and therefore the per phase impedance offered by it is independent of the phase sequence of a balanced set of currents. In other words, the Sequence Impedance of Transmission Line offered by it to …

Sequence Impedances and Networks of Synchronous Machine

Sequence Impedances and Networks of Synchronous Machine: Sequence Impedances and Networks of Synchronous Machine – Figure 10.11 depicts an unloaded synchronous machine (generator or motor) grounded through a reactor (impedance Zn). Ea, Eb and Ec are the induced emfs of the three phases. When a fault (not shown in the figure) takes place at machine terminals, …

Phase Shift in Star Delta Transformer

Phase Shift in Star Delta Transformer: Positive and negative sequence voltages and currents undergo a Phase Shift in Star Delta Transformer which depends upon the labelling of terminals. Before considering this phase shift, we need to discuss the standard polarity marking of a single-phase transformer as shown in Fig. 10.5. The transformer ends marked with …

Symmetrical Component Transformation

Symmetrical Component Transformation: Symmetrical Component Transformation is given by a  set of three balanced voltages (phasors) Va,Vb,Vc is characterized by equal magnitudes and interphase differences of 120°. The set is said to have a phase sequence abc (positive sequence) if Vb lags Va by 120° and Vc lags Vb by 120°. The three phasors can …
