Abstract

The study focuses on the protection strategy for an underground power cable (transmission) for a medium voltage distribution network using dual slope percentage bias differential relay (ANSI 87). The underground cable is the bridge that connects the power supply from generator to distribution substations, it must be well protected from internal fault that may cause insulation breakdown and leads to electrical failure; while remain unaffected for external fault conditions. The fault simulation is done with PSCAD software, and the suitable protection settings for the applied differential relay is proposed. The study found that the relay is stable for external faults while allowing sensitive settings to pick up internal fault if the setting was carefully chosen.
