Homework Statement
FIGURE 3 shows part of an electrical supply system.
Draw the impedance diagrams reducing to a single impedance.
Calculate the fault MVA levels in each unit for a fault on the left 3.3 kV bus with the bus section
switch B open and A closed. Use a base MVA of 10 and show
the fault MVA levels on a diagram.
Comment on the result and suggest a method of improving the system to limit the fault MVA through T1 to approximately 5 × FL current. (It is not necessary to recalculate.)
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
The fault MVA and pu impedances
[tex]G_1 and G_2\text{fault MVA} = \frac{16}{0.8}=20MVA[/tex]
[tex]G_1 and G_2\text{ pu impedance} = \frac{10}{20}\frac{20}{100}=0.1pu[/tex]
[tex]G_3\text{fault MVA} = \frac{1.6}{0.8}=2MVA[/tex]
[tex]G_3\text{ pu impedance} = \frac{10}{2}\frac{20}{100}=1pu[/tex]
[tex]T_1,T_2and T_3\text{ pu impedance} = \frac{10}{10}\frac{5}{100}=0.05pu[/tex]
So we need to work out the total impedance and fault current.
[tex] T_2T_3=0.025pu[/tex]
[tex]G_3+T_2T_3=1.025pu[/tex]
[tex](G_3+T_2T_3)G_1G_2=0.0477pu[/tex]
[tex][(G_3+T_2T_3)G_1G_2]+T_1=0.0977pu[/tex]
So the fault MVA
[tex]\frac{10}{0.0977}=102.4MVA[/tex]
So the fault MVA through T_{1} is 102.4
and through the rest
[tex]\text{voltage MVA}(G_3+T_2T_3)G_1G_2=102.4*0.0477=4.88MVA[/tex]
Fault through G_{1} and G_{2}
[tex]\frac{4.88}{0.1}=48.88MVA[/tex]
Fault through G_{3}+T_{2}T_{3}
[tex]\frac{4.88}{1.025}=4.76[/tex]
[tex]\text{voltage MVA G_{3}}=4.76*1=4.76MVA[/tex]
voltage MVA over T_{2}T_{3}
[tex]=0.025*4.76=0.119MVA[/tex]
Fault through T_{2} and T_{3}
[tex]\frac{0.110}{0.05}=2.38MVA[/tex]
I think this is correct.
The part I am struggling with is
"Comment on the result and suggest a method of improving the system to limit the fault MVA through T1 to approximately 5 × FL current. (It is not necessary to recalculate.)"
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
