Course Objectives

Learning Objectives:
- Trainees will be able to describe the roles that CTs and VTs play in monitoring system conditions and providing reliable input the various protection relays.
- Trainees will be able to describe the vital characteristics of CTs and VTs, paricularly as they relate to performance and accuracy.
- Trainees will be able to describe the conventions for polarity; that is the direction of current flow in instrument transformers.
- Trainees will be able to describe how the polarity of CTs and VTs can be determined, including both the interpretation of markings on the transformer terminals and some simple tests that can be made to determine polarity.
- Trainees will be able to describe the conventions applied to phasor diagrams, including phase rotation and phase sequence.
- Trainees will be able to explain how a phasor diagram can be constructed based on the information presented in a circuit connection diagram.
- Trainees will be able to describe the basics of the per unit impedance system of calculation, which is useful in the analysis of fault conditions.
- Trainees will be able to relate per unit impedances to ohmic values of impedance for basic equipment configurations.
