Power system protection and control ensures the reliable continuous operation of power systems and is, therefore, an important area of power engineering. In this course, you will learn about the principles of busbar protection and the different protective elements used to protect substation buses. By understanding how substation buses operate and how to implement different protective elements for their protection, you will be able to design robust protection schemes to protect these components from faults and abnormal operating conditions.
In a significant amount of detail, we will then discuss all the protective elements used in the industry to protect substation buses. These include current differential (87) and high-impedance voltage differential (87V). The course ends with explaining how an SEL-487B protective relay can be used for the protection of a substation bus.
