GENERAL INTRODUCTION

1.1

FOREWORD

The Reference Data Programs are some of the programs integrated into EDSA.

The Reference Data Programs are undergoing constant development. We have tried to make these programs as error free as possible. However, due to their flexibility, and the need for your engineering judgment in the input and the interpretation of results, we cannot guarantee the validity or accuracy of the results in applicability; they are the responsibility of the user.

We are attempting to make these programs as comprehensive, flexible, intelligent, and easy to use as

possible.

Additional analysis capabilities and manufacturers' data will be made available as they are

developed.

It is assumed that the user is a Professional Engineer familiar with the protective device coordination concepts which, in well-designed electrical systems, must assure a continuous supply of energy through the system, and must selectively coordinate protective devices so that damage and system outages are minimized, and isolated under abnormal conditions.

Any comments, suggestions, or errors encountered in either the results or documentation should be immediately brought to EDSA's attention.

1.2

PURPOSE

Many of the EDSA programs search through a library of available devices to select the most appropriate device for a particular application. Protective devices include Fuses, Relays, MCPs, Circuit Breakers, Harmonics Curves, Power Source Decrement/Withstand, and other typical protective devices. EDSA has a series of programs to add to the libraries for the various protective devices.

Each library entry consists of descriptive information and data points from a curve. The curve describes the properties of the specific device. The descriptive information identifies the device (such as manufacturer and model number) and some overall characteristics (such as voltage or amperage). Together, they provide the information needed to determine the fitness of a specific device for a particular application.

Typically, curve data come from graphs drawn on log-log paper. The data entry programs are designed for use with a digitizer to make entering the curves quick and easy. However, the user may use the keyboard to type in data points if a digitizer is not available. In the near future, the number of data entry points for curves will be extended beyond the existing 10 points.

BUILD AND EDIT PROTECTIVE DEVICES

1.3 USE OF THE PROGRAM

1.3.1 Capabilities

You may enter Fuse, MCP, Relay, Breaker, and other device data curves. You may also edit or move curves, or plot the curves on the screen to check the correctness of the data entered. For each type of protective device (Fuse, Relay , MCP, Breaker, etc.) you may choose one of two options:

1. Add new curves to the library.

2. Edit or delete items from the library.

Either option may create a temporary list of desired changes to the library. At the end of a session, the program merges the changes into the library. You may want to periodically save the files you are working on to protect yourself from data loss due to power source interruptions.

You can also print a listing of the data contained in the libraries.

1.3.2 Preparation of Data

You must acquire, from the manufacturer, the log-log data sheets, the catalog information of options, and the interrupt ratings, as well as instructions for their proper use. Make sure you determine which values are dependent on other values, such as: whether the short time pickup of a circuit breaker is a multiple of the sensor tap or the long time pickup.

You may wish to look at the data already provided for your guidance and the proper examples.

1.3.3 Entering the Data

From the EDSA Windows Main Menu, choose Reference Data. From this menu choose the particular device type you wish to edit. The individual program responsible for the management of that particular data type will load. If you wish to add new curves to the files you will choose to ADD the data. If you wish to change existing data, you will choose to EDIT the data.

METHODS AND ANALYSES

2.1

GENERAL NOTES

2.1.1 Ten-Point Curves

Most of the curves, or sections of curves, are entered as Ten Point Curves. These are ten unevenly spaced points representing the curve section. Each point is specified with the coordinates: Amps and Seconds. Some devices require the points to be a multiple of the Amp Setting. The endpoints are important. Make sure the points are grouped more closely in areas of the greatest curvature. You must enter all ten points. For speed and accuracy, EDSA uses linear interpolation on the points to regenerate the curve. Our studies have shown that carefully chosen linear interpolation points were more accurate numerically and visually near to the manufacturer’s data sheets.

Important Note:

Near future programs will be based on ODBC and will let you enter curves on 10, 20, etc. points for more accuracy. EDSA databases are being revised to “open” database systems to allow complete freedom in data entry.

2.1.2 Slopes and Intercepts

For solid-state breakers, some of the line curve sections are specified with slope-intercept values. Unlike standard textbook slope-intercept forms, the intercept axis is the one second axis. All values are converted to Log before using. See section 2.13, page 165, on slope-intercept for more information on the entering of these data.

2.1.3 Multiplier Codes

For all breakers, the specification of a section of curve, or device setting, is either an Amp value, or a multiple of an Amp value, or a multiple of a multiple. Each item that needs a specification, will ask for a multiplier code to specify what it is a multiple of. The following codes are used:

#

-

Amp

X

-

Sensor or Amps Rating

C

-

Current Setting

L

-

Long Time Pickup

S

-

If you select the digitizer, you will go through the digitizer calibration procedure.

When the coordinates of the points required by the Digitizer Calibration Program are entered, place the digitizer cursor at that point, and press the cursor button. This tells the program where that point is on the digitizer.

After you press the cursor button, the program will ask you to move to the next point, etc. The program computes this next point based on the coordinates of the previous point.

Pressing the button for the third point completes the recalibration procedure.

Some onion sheets have x 10, x 100 multiplier. Make sure to note these multipliers in data entry.

To identify the characteristics of the curve, enter the screen information. Also enter three rankings: general rank, motor rank, and transformer rank.

Rankings (PDC) are used by the Protective Device Coordination program to deal with special purpose fuses of a manufacturer. If there are no special purpose fuses, enter a 1 for all rankings. The PDC program uses the rankings in the following manner:

1. If the PDC program is selecting a fuse for motor protection, a fuse with a motor ranking of 1 will be chosen over a fuse with a motor ranking of 2, etc.

2. If the PDC program is selecting a fuse for transformer protection, a fuse with a transformer ranking of 1 will be chosen over a fuse with a transformer ranking of 2, etc.

3. If the PDC program is selecting a fuse for general protection (not motor or transformer), a fuse with a general ranking of 1 will be chosen over a fuse with a general ranking of 2, etc.

BUILD AND EDIT PROTECTIVE DEVICES

2.4.1 Detailed Descriptions Of Data Fields For Solid-State Circuit Breakers

The example used is the GE 240V-30 with Micro Versa Trip (options S and L).

1. MANUFACTURER - Manufacture's name is used as a filename. You can create multiple filenames by calling them: GE1, GE2, etc., or SQD1, SQD2, etc

2. VOLTAGE RATING (in L-L Volts) - Note that different voltage ratings often have different interrupting ratings, (e.g.: 240 Volt breaker has 30,000 but 480 Volt breakers have 42,000 amperes interrupt rating). See the General Breaker Information screen.

3. BREAKER TYPE - General class of frames (e.g.: AKR). See the General Breaker Information screen.

4. TRIP TYPE - Each option assortment must be separated into different breakers, because different options will determine the existence of short time and instantaneous functions (e.g.: MVT-SL). They also may have different interrupt ratings. See the General Breaker Information screen.

5. INTERRUPT RATING (in amps) - Note that different options have different interrupt ratings. (e.g.: 30,000).

6. MAXIMUM AMPS RATING - Note that some frame sizes have more than one choice of maximum amps rating; you can separate these into more than one breaker (e.g.: 800). This is with regard to the frame size. See the Sensor Taps screen.

7. FRAME SIZE - Specific frame size name. (e.g.: AKR-30). This designation is related to the breaker type.

8. TRIP CONFIGURATION - Enter the type of options specified in Trip Type on the Choose Components screen.

9. NUMBER OF SENSORS - See the Sensor Taps screen for 240 MVT-SL.

10. SENSOR TAPS (in amps) - (Ex. 100, 150, 225, 300, 400, 600, 800).

11. CURRENT SETTING MULTIPLIER - See the picklist.

12. CURRENT SETTINGS - (Ex. 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.85, 0.9, 0.95, 1.0) See the Sensor Taps screen.

13. LONG TIME PICKUP MULTIPLIER - See Per Unit Value picklist.

14. LONG TIME PICKUPS - (Ex. 0.8, 0.9, 1.0, 1.1). See Long Time Pickups screen.

15. NUMBER OF LONG TIME DELAYS - See “Name” on Long Time Delays screen.

16. LONG TIME DELAY MULTIPLIER - See Per Unit Value picklist.

17. LONG TIME DELAY NAMES - Name of bands (Ex. 1, 2, 3, 4).

Page 50

EDSA

BUILD AND EDIT PROTECTIVE DEVICES

18. LONG TIME DELAY SLOPES - The algebraic slope of the delay using log #10 values. See the Slope-Intercept section (Ex. - 0.500 for Min. and Max. Slope).

19. LONG TIME DELAY INTERCEPTS - The algebraic intercept of the delay band using log 10 values. To calculate, extend the delay bands until it crosses the Time = 1 second line. Enter the log 10 of the amps value at the interception (Min. and Max. Intercepts).

20. NUMBER OF SHORT TIME PICKUPS - See “Name” on Short Time Pickups screen.

21. SHORT TIME PICKUP MULTIPLIER - See “Per Unit Value” picklist on Short Time Pickups screen.

22. SHORT TIME PICKUPS - (Ex. 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9). See “Pickup Value” on Short Time Pickups screen.

23. NUMBER OF SHORT TIME InT RAMPS - See Short Time InT Delays screen.

24. SHORT TIME InT MULTIPLIERS - See Per Unit Value picklist. Each InT band has a separate multiplier code because the ramp moves with the current setting or other base value, whereas, if you have no ramp, it moves with the short time pickup. See Short Time InT Delays screen.

25. SHORT TIME InT NAMES - Enter NONE if no ramp functions, FIX if ramp is fixed, IN and OUT for switch settings if switchable.

26. SHORT TIME InT SLOPES - For no ramp or OUT position, use slope = 0, otherwise calculate the same as Long Time Delay (Ex. 0, -0.5).

27. SHORT TIME InT INTERCEPTS - For no ramp or OUT position, use intercepts = 0, otherwise calculate the same as Long Time Delay. (Ex. 0, 0.65), log 10 (4.5) = 0.65.

28. SHORT TIME DELAY NAMES - (Ex. MIN., INT., MAX).

29. SHORT TIME DELAY MAX TIMES (in seconds) - Top of delay bands (Ex. 0.17, 0.3, 0.49).

30. SHORT TIME DELAY MIN TIMES (in seconds) - Bottom of display bands (Ex. 0.1, 0.23,

0.36).

31. INSTANTANEOUS PICKUP MULTIPLIER - See Per Unit Value picklist.

32. INSTANTANEOUS PICKUP - (Ex. 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10). See the screen.

33. INSTANTANEOUS TIME (in seconds) - Top of instantaneous delay (Ex. 0.05).

2.4.2 Notes; Solid-State Circuit Breakers:

1. Always enter pickups and delays in order of increasing amps and time values (in the order that the PDC program will choose when selecting).

2. For continuous band settings, such as pickups, enter values for the PDC program to step through. For example, if short time pickups are 2-10, entering 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10 will cause the PDC programs to step through 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10 as possible values when it is selecting. If you select the setting as 5 or 7.54, the PDC program will allow you to use them instead of only 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10.

2.6 ADJUSTABLE MAGNETIC BREAKERS

2.6.1 Adding Adjustable Magnetic Breaker Curves

The data entry programs use the EDSA Windows standards for on-screen editing. The TAB key

is used to skip to the next field without changing the current field. "Back TAB" is used to skip

back to the previous field without changing the current field. You may choose keyboard or digitizer for data entry.

If the digitizer is used to enter a curve, the cursor must be moved to ten different points on the

curve. The cursor button must be pressed once at each point. As the points are entered, the X and

Y coordinates will appear on the screen. All ten points must be entered before the values can be

edited. If the keyboard is used, the coordinates X and Y must be typed for each point. The prompts at the bottom of the screen request the amp and time values that must be noted.

As each coordinate is entered, it appears in the display area of the screen as well as the prompt area.

When all ten points have been entered, the points may be edited with the keyboard.

After the curve is entered and saved, the user can proceed to the next breaker unit.

When all breaker units have been entered, one can return to the general information screen.

It must be noted that all curves are automatically shifted left to a baseline with amp values near

1.0.

As an example, below are shown the values to be entered for the General Electric type EC-1 magnetic breaker:

Actually, there are four different frame sizes. If frame sizes have more than ten sensor taps, they must be split into multiple frame sizes to enter into the program. There will be seven frame sizes with the following information on next page:

For AK-15, AK-25, and AK-50, it is the Max Amps value that makes the distinction between different frame sizes.

There are three long time pickups: 0.8, 0.9, 1.0.

There are nine short time pickups: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

There are six instantaneous pickups: 20, 30, 40, 50, 65, 75.

There are three long time delay curves labeled 1A-MAX, 1B-INT, 1C-MIN.

There are three short time delay curves labeled 2A-MAX, 2B-INT, 2C-MIN.

There is one instantaneous delay curve labeled SPEC.

This completes the data entry.

2.8 THERMAL AND OVERLOAD RELAYS

2.8.1 Adding Thermal Relay Curves

The data entry programs use the EDSA Windows standards for on-screen editing. When editing values on a screen, the TAB key is used to skip to the next field without changing the current field. "Back TAB" is used to skip back to the previous field without changing the current field.

You may select the digitizer or the keyboard for data entry.

Note that the program records both a "Min" and "Max" curve for each relay unit.

You must, of course, enter both "Min" and "Max" for the same unit.

For each relay unit, enter the number of relay type designations for that unit. For each unit, after you have entered the number of type designations, you then enter those designations. Then enter the data points for the curve.

For entering the curve, if you are using the digitizer, move the cursor to ten different points on the curve. Press the cursor button once at each point. As you enter the points, the X and Y coordinates will appear on the screen. You must enter all ten points before you can edit the values.

If you are using the keyboard, type in the X and Y coordinates for each point.

As each coordinate is entered, it appears in the display area of the screen.

When all ten points have been entered, you may edit the points with the keyboard.

If you are satisfied that the curve is correct, save the curve in the relay data file. The curve will be saved for each relay type designation you entered. After the curve is entered and saved, you proceed to the next relay unit.

When all relay units have been entered, you return to the general information screen.

2.9 HOW TO BUILD AND EDIT RECLOSERS

EDIT PROTECTIVE DEVICES 2.9 HOW TO BUILD AND EDIT RECLOSERS Sample Reclosers Data File. Reclosers are

Sample Reclosers Data File.

Reclosers are intelligent interrupting devices that open and reclose the circuit several times. This is due to the fact that over 75% of overhead faults are temporary in nature, and are mostly due to storms and high winds causing phases to touch each other, or are of a similar temporary and transient nature. Reclosers can usually be programmed to open and re-energize the circuit three to four times, and then, if the fault has not cleared, they will lock-open and isolate the faulted area.

Reclosers are single-phase or three-phase, and reclosers controls are either hydraulic or electronic. Interrupting medium are oil or vacuum. Three-phase reclosers are usually used in circuits where the lockout of all three phases are necessary and single-phasing needs to be avoided. Single-phase reclosers can be used in three-phase systems and also in single-phase systems. If the loads served are single-phase and a line-to-ground fault happens, one phase can be locked out and the rest of loads can be served.

C.

X axis is the log of the current.

D.

Y axis is the log of time.

E.

Following industry convention, X and Y axes are labeled with the current and time values respectively.

F.

Therefore, the log of the time and current values must be computed and inputted.

G.

Since Log (1) = 0, the origin of a log-log time-current plot is:

time = 1 second.

current = 1 * (pick-up current).

EDSA BUILD AND EDIT PROTECTIVE DEVICES TABLE A-2 TABLE A-3 Standard voltages for generators differ from

Standard voltages for generators differ from the corresponding standard voltages for motors. The two NEMA standards MG1-10.30 and MG1-22.13 list motor and generator voltages as shown in Table A-2. For these corresponding “Standard” voltages use the starting KVA as specified in Table A-1. If corresponding voltages are “Non-Standard”, modify the starting KVA by the multiplication factor given in Table A-3.

Previous standard voltage which was 220 Volts should be operated on 240 Volts whenever possible.
