PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF AN ADAPTIVE DIGITAL DISTANCE RELAY IMMUNE TO HARMONIC EFFECTS
Microprocessor based distance relays use digital filters to process the input current and voltage signals and estimate the system impedance. Distance relays current and voltage input signals are not sinosuidal due to nonlinear and switching loads as well as harmonic frequencies produced by system faults. In this paper, performance of digital distance relays in presence of harmonics is studied. Different filters are proposed to improve the distance relay operational performance. To achieve an adaptive protection method, a fast Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) measurement method is proposed. A benchmark system is used for the development of digital protection simulation. Power system and distance relay model development are reported and some study results are provided.
