Complete Generator System Protection

Stator ground module works in combination with GE’s Multlin G60 and MiCOM Agile P345 to provide a 100% stator ground fault protection that is operational during generator start-up, running and stopped conditions. In the 100% stator ground fault protection based on sub-harmonic injection, a 20Hz voltage is injected to detect ground faults at any point across 100% of the winding thereby protecting the complete stator winding and allowing early detection of stator ground fault conditions.

 
Advanced Generator Protection

Protection & Control

 
20 Hz Injection Module

Using sub-harmonic injection provides early detection of stator ground fault conditions. This is accomplished by the injection module generating a square wave pulse of 20Hz with a magnitude of +/-26V into the stator winding. The injection module monitors the frequency and magnitude of the signal it generates which allows for the Stator module to determine if a ground fault has occurred in the stator winding. In addition, the stator module is also equipped with a critical-fail relay that can be wired to alarm failure of the module.

Coupling Filter

The coupling filter is used to meet two functions: to smooth the square wave and convert it into a sine wave and to protect the injection module from AC voltage impressed from the secondary of neutral grounding transformer. Coupling filter contains only passive components. It also contains voltage divider circuits to be used on applications with NGT secondary voltage greater than 500V
