ANNUAL JOURNAL OF TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF VARNA, BULGARIA , Volume 4, pp 67-72; doi:10.29114/ajtuv.vol4.iss1.172

Abstract: In the medium voltage electrical power lines, the most common fault is the phase to ground fault. The determining factors for selection of the neutral grounding mode of the medium voltage electrical power lines are the selectivity of the relay protection, the transient voltages during phase to ground fault, the magnitude of the fault currents, etc. The paper studies the influence of the transient resistance of phase to ground fault on the selectivity and sensitivity of the earth fault protection when the neutral of the power transformer is grounded through active resistance in medium voltage power grids.
