Power System Protection: Busbar Protection

Learn about the protection of substation buses to further your career in electrical and power engineering

This course is part of a multi-part course series about one of the main areas of power engineering: power system protection and control. Power system protection and control ensures the reliable continuous operation of power systems and is therefore an essential area of power engineering. In this course, you will learn about the different protective elements used for the protection of substation buses.

What you’ll learn

  • Protection of substation buses.
  • Use of different protective elements for substation bus protection, such as current differential (87) and high-impedance voltage differential (87V).
  • How to use the SEL-487B protective relay for protecting substation buses.

Course Content

  • Course Introduction –> 3 lectures • 4min.
  • Substation Bus Protection –> 6 lectures • 2hr 22min.
  • Course Exam –> 0 lectures • 0min.
  • Course Wrap-Up –> 1 lecture • 1min.

Power System Protection: Busbar Protection

Requirements

This course is part of a multi-part course series about one of the main areas of power engineering: power system protection and control. Power system protection and control ensures the reliable continuous operation of power systems and is therefore an essential area of power engineering. In this course, you will learn about the different protective elements used for the protection of substation buses.

We will begin the course by giving a brief review of the different types of substation bus arrangements typically found in power systems, so that we can understand why and how to protect them from faults and abnormal operating conditions. We will then discuss, in a great amount of detail, all the protective elements used in industry for the protection of substation buses. These include: current differential (87) and high-impedance voltage differential (87V). We will end the course by explaining how an SEL-487B protective relay can be used for the protection of a substation bus.

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.
