BASIC FEATURES 5.1 a) General The medium voltage overhead line Fault Current Sensor and Indicator shall be of the outdoor type suitable for working in the tropical climate condition stipulated in clause 3.0 above. The components used in the Indicator shall be suitably protected from direct sunlight to prevent malfunctioning due to solar radiation.The maximum operating temperature shall not be less than 70C.

b)

CEB STANDARD 072 : 1998

c)

The Indicator shall be suitable for mounting on line supports such as wood poles / reinforced concrete poles / lattice steel towers, three to five meters below the 11kV and 33kV live lines. It shall be fully self-contained type without any external connection and isolated from the line. The Indicator shall be suitable for use on a three phase line and the fault sensing shall be based on detection of the variation in the electromagnetic field below the three phase conductors. It shall not be a directional type. The Indicator shall be of the programmable type suitable for sensing; i) ii) Short-circuit fault up to 13.1 kA Low earth leakage fault of maximum sensitivity of 4A or less with tripping level setting range up to 50A.

d)

e)

f)

The Indicators which are detecting the variation of the electromagnetic field due to fault current ( Indicators installed between the circuit breaker and fault point shall only sense the fault current) shall only provide intermittent Neon / Xenon flash indication after the circuit breaker trips on fault. The duration of flash indication shall be adjustable from 2 to 12 hours. A secondary flashing LED indication shall also be provided to indicate the transient fault and permanent fault, and the duration shall be able to set at 24 hours. Facilities shall be provided to program the sequence of operation of flash lamp indication as required by the purchaser. The Indicator shall be suitable to provide the following operations. i) ii) iii) Flash (neon/xenon) indication for phase to earth fault. Flash (neon/xenon) indication for phase to phase/three phase short circuit Flash LED indication of Transient and permanent faults.

g) h)

i)

The Indicator shall have the following Flash indication resetting facilities; i) ii) iii) To reset automatically after restoration of supply To reset after Programmed duration after occurring of fault to reset manually.

j)

The Indicator shall be selective in action as indicated below; i) ii) It shall not respond to any sudden variation (increase/decrease) in load current. It shall not respond to high magnetising inrush current.

5.2

Equipment Housing

The Fault Current Sensor and Indicator housing shall be made of high strength plastic and shall be of UV stabilised and flame retarding type. 5.3 Mounting Bracket

The mounting bracket of the Fault Current Sensor and Indicator shall be made of Stainless steel or aluminum suitable for mounting on overhead distribution line supports such as wood poles, concrete poles and lattice steel towers.

CEB STANDARD 072 : 1998

5.4

Flash Indication

The flash indicator shall be of the neon/xenon type and the flash indication shall be visible for at least 250m in day time and 2km in night time. The flash indicator shall be so designed to allow a uniform 360 monitoring 5.5 Power supply

The power supply for the operation of the equipment shall be from a lithium battery suitable for 5-7 years trouble free service.

6.0
