EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits6 Phase-to-phase short circuit on an unloaded generator Let phase b be shorted to phase c: I a = 0, I c = -I b and V b = V c Then V 1 = V 2 = (V a -V b )/3 I 0 = 0 and I 1 = -I 2 = j I b / 3 I 1 = -I 2 V1V1 V2V2 E Connect the positive and negative sequence networks in parallel at the fault, calculate I 1 Then I b = -j 3 I 1 and I c = 3 I 1

EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits10 Single-phase-to-ground short circuit on an unloaded power system Construct a Thevenin equivalent circuit for each sequence network. Let phase a be the faulted phase: V a = 0 and I b = I c = 0. Then I 0 = I 1 = I 2 = I a /3 and V 0 + V 1 + V 2 = 0. Connect the sequence equivalents in series at the fault (terminals), calculate I 0, and I a = 3 I 0. This current is total fault current. Line and other apparatus currents are found by solution of the sequence networks.

EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits15 Use current division to find current from T1 in each sequence network: |I 0 | = 2.255 1.055/(1.135) = 2.096 |I 1 | = |I 2 | = 2.255 0.935/(1.165) = 1.810 And the transformation back to the line current from T1 gives: I a = -j(1.810 + 1.810 + 2.096) = -j 5.72 per unit Note that on the LV side of T1, the zero-sequence line current is zero (due to the delta connection). The positive and negative sequence currents are shifted in phase by ±30 degrees, but in opposite directions. This is considered on the next slide.
EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits16 Phase shifts in delta-wye transformers Consider the delta-wye step-up transformer shown below: –The positive sequence shows a phase shift of 30º (hv side leading lv side) –The negative sequence has a phase shift of -30º A a B b c C

EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits18 Consider the previous example, but now compute the currents at the generator G1 (the line currents on the low-voltage side of T1) The zero-sequence current is zero due to the transformer connection The LV side positive sequence current is shifted by –30º while the negative sequence current is shifted by +30º
EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits19 On the HV side of T1, the example gave: I 0 = -j 2.255 1.055/(1.135) = -j 2.096 pu I 1 = I 2 = -j 2.255 0.935/(1.165) = 1.810 /-90º pu On the LV side of T1: I 0 = 0 pu I 1 = 1.810 /-90º - 30º = 1.810 /-120º pu I 2 = 1.810 /-90º + 30º = 1.810 /-60º pu I a = I 0 +I 1 +I 2 = 3.14 /-90º per unit I b = I 0 +a 2 I 1 +aI 2 = 3.14 /90º per unit I c = I 0 +aI 1 +a 2 I 2 = 0.00 per unit
EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits20 A a B b c C I a = 3.14 /-90º per unit I A = 5.72/-90º per unit Note that I B and I C create small circulating currents in the delta side of both transformers (only one of which is shown). I B = I C = 0.29/-90º per unit

EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits23 Ungrounded Power Delivery Systems Many process industries have trouble with unplanned process shut-down due to faults –Since the most common fault is a short circuit from single phase to ground, why not use an ungrounded system? –Supply power from a delta-delta or wye- delta step-down transformer and the LV system is ungrounded
EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits24 V1V1 V2V2 V0V0 EE I 0 = 0 G1 Motor T2T1 L Static loads ungrounded system 1 -gnd sc I a = 3I 0 = 0 The process can continue to operate until it can be shut down in an orderly fashion.
EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits25 EE I 0 But include stray capacitance to ground, and there is an RLC series circuit that can produce high-frequency transients that may be lightly damped. This can cause problems with transient overvoltages. E R 1th L 1th R 2th L 2th C0C0 If the fault is a repetitive, arcing short-circuit, large transient voltages to ground can be produced. This may damage insulation and lead to burn-down of the system V1V1 V2V2 V0V0
EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits26 The solution is to use high-resistance grounding to limit the single phase to ground short circuit current to a very small value, but greater than the charging current. G1 Motor T2T1 L Static loads 1 -gnd sc The process can continue to operate, but now transient voltages are damped much better and present less danger.

EE 751Unsymmetrical Short Circuits28 Discussion Many other faults have been analyzed using symmetrical components –See, for example, Electrical Transmission and Distribution Reference Book, Westinghouse Electric Corporation, 1964 –Another approach for more complicated cases: use three-phase primitive branch impedance matrix and transform to three- phase bus admittance matrix in abc coordinates
