An Automated Technique for Extracting Phasors from Protective Relay’s Event Reports
AbstractPost-fault event report analysis is a crucial skill set for electric power engineers in the protection industry. This paper serves as a reference which elucidates the preprocessing procedures involved in transforming data present in event reports to phasors that can be used in various post-fault analysis application algorithms. The paper discusses key elements of this process such as interpreting the data and calculating voltage and current phasors from instantaneous sample values present in a fault record. A crucial component of event report analysis is choosing the appropriate time instant for calculating phasors for event report analysis. Conventionally, protection engineers manually perform event report analysis and arbitrarily select time instants after certain cycles of fault inception for this purpose. This approach prevents the process from being successfully automated. Furthermore, arbitrary selection of time instant does not utilize the entire fault data and may fail in several cases such as short time fault scenario and evolving fault scenario. For this purpose, this paper proposes an adaptive novel technique which utilizes the entire data present in the event report to select the most suitable time instant for event report analysis. The superiority of the proposed algorithm over conventional methods is demonstrated using three real-world scenarios. View Full-Text
