Abstract:
ABSTRACT Distribution transformer is an essential link in the distribution system. Failure of distribution transformers causes capital loss and loss of revenue to the nation. With the increasing loads, voltages and short-circuit duty of the distribution substation feeders, distribution over current protection has become more important today than it was even 10 years ago. The ability of the protective equipment to minimize damage when failures do occur and also to minimize service interruption time is demanded not only for economic reasons but also because the general public just expects “reliable” service. In distribution transformers, the loading on the secondary side increases sometimes due to increased power consumption. Due to this load draws more current from transformer than its rated value. If proper protection is not provided against this overload current then it damages the transformer insulation windings. An overload and fault protector for a distribution transformer or the like is disclosed. A series-connected high range current-limiting MCB is to be installed to protect the transformer from damages due to overloading by instantaneous tripping. It should withstand the initial magnetizing inrush current and should not trip during that period. Keywords: Arduino, Circuit Breaker, Distribution Transformer, Overload
