what exactly is a remote substation?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

hi there

i am doing a fault analysis on a power system that consists of two substations interconnected by a line.

The purpose of this project is to determine the positive and zero sequence impedances of the line and the source for different types of faults. I am doing this so i can determine the correct settings for the relays by use of a specific software.

The fault is applied on the line interconnecting these substations. How do i identify the local and remote substations? Does it depend on the fault location?

please assist..

thanks

Local usually refers to the place where the protective device is. It may gather data from remote places by telemetry.
