Why do we have resistance measuring instruments, some with only two test leads, some with three and even some with four test leads? Figure 1 shows the measurement range (2-Wire, 3-Wire and… Read more
The author has observed young graduate engineers using available computer programs to model substation earth mats and calculate earth potential rise (EPR) without understanding the importance of the parameters involved. In one… Read more
A test is required to verify the continuity of each conductor including the circuit protective conductor (cpc) of every ring final circuit. The test results should establish that the ring is complete… Read more
Substations designed in the past made use of protection and control schemes implemented with single-function, electromechanical or static devices and hard-wired relay logic. SCADA functions were centralized and limited to monitoring of… Read more
Distribution systems serve as the link from the distribution substation to the customer. This system provides the safe and reliable transfer of electric energy to various customers throughout the service territory. Typical… Read more
