INTRODUCTION

1. Background of Study

Current Transformer (CT) is used to measure secondary current for metering and protection purposes. In another words, CT is used to transform a primary quantity in terms of its magnitude and phase to a secondary value such that in normal condition the secondary value is substantially proportional to the primary value. Much development by various manufacturers has been done to improve the output measurements. The appearance and development of the Optical Current Transformer (OCT) in the last few decades become much more interesting to replace the conventional CT in the power system operation. In the past 15 years, Optical CT has received a significant attention by a manufaturer to replace iron-core CT in electric power industry. This Optical CT is non conductive and lightweight which can give the end user easiness of installing and doing maintenance.

2. Literature Review

In [1], the author describes the experimental comparison between conventional current transformer (CT) and the optical current transformer (OCT) especially in steady state response, transient response and impact of ambient temperature. Optical CT offered high accuracy in measuring the primary current for measuring or protection purposes compared to a conventional CT. Most of the studies regarding the Otpical CT lately are raised in order to demonstrate the advantages of the Optical CT in power system compared to conventional CT. In reality, this optical CT has been installed together with Magnetic CT to compare the effectiveness and the accuracy of the Optical CT with Magnetic CT. In [2], thermal modeling of CT for Top Oil Temperature (TOT) and Hot Spot Temperature (HST) was developed to analyze the behaviour of the oil-filled CT’s temperature. The paper describes the modified model of TOT and HST under various load conditions. For this testing purpose, the fiber-optic and thermocouples were embedded inside the CT during manufacturing stage so that heat can be measured with an accuracy of +/- 2oC. 3. Experimental Setup For the comparison of Optical CT and Magnetic CT, two types of CT were selected to run all the experiments. Below is the detail of the CT use for the experiment.
|Optical CT |Magnetic CT |
|Voltage 69kV, BIL 350kV |Voltage 145kV, BIL 650kV |
|Rated frequency 60Hz |Rated frequency 60Hz |
|Weight 625lbs |Weight 153lbs |
|Current 800/400/5A |Rated max thermal current 3000A |
|5A high energy output |Rated short circuit current 63kA |
| |Rated delay time 40(s |

For TOT and HST measurement, four CT with two different rating was selected which are 100/200:5A and 600/1200:5A. The dimension of each CT as per table below.
|Tank Height |: |570mm |
|Tank maximum OD |: |360mm |
|Tank minimum ID |: |350mm |
|Porcelain Insulator height |: |90mm |
|CT total height |: |1530mm |

CHAPTER 2
METHODOLOGY

1. Steady State Perfomance

This test was carried out to test the accuracies of the Optical CT compared with Magnetic CT under the normal condition. Steady state between two types of CT is compared by using measurement technique where the high precision reference magnetic CT output is compared with the tested CT output. The test was conducted by closing both circuit breaker and electronic switch and the current were injected through the circuit from 248A to 762A in 8 steps as shows in Figure [1]. The test was done separately as the CT will be tested together with reference CT. [pic]
Figure 1: Experimental test setup

The test was carried out with Optical CT first where the output of Optical CT was compared with a 1000:1A high precision reference CT’s output. The output of both Optical CT and high precision reference Ct were connected to Differential Amplifier as shown in Figure [2] to compare the outputs between them.

[pic]
Figure 2: Optical CT measurement test setup

Table [1] shows the result of the experiment. We can see that the differences (%) between high precision CT and Optical CT not exceed 0.3%.
Table 1: Optical CT test result
|Applied Current (A) |Difference (A) |Difference (%) |
|248 |0.4 |0.16 |
|313 |0.7 |0.22 |
|390 |0.8 |0.20 |
|466 |0.8 |0.17 |
|543 |0.6 |0.11 |
|619 |0.6 |0.09 |
|688 |0.4 |0.05 |
|762 |0.2 |0.02 |

Test setup for Magnetic CT is shown in Figure [3] where high precision CT was connected to a 1( calibrated resistor and directly connected to voltmeter while the output of Magnetic CT is directly connected to voltmeter for current measurement.

[pic]
Figure 3 The result is shows in Table [2] where we can conclude that the differences (%) from applied currents are exceed of 0.3%.

|Applied Current (A) |Difference (A) |Difference (%) |
|248 |0.6 |0.26 |
|313 |1.4 |0.44 |
|390 |2.4 |0.61 |
|466 |0.7 |0.15 |
|543 |0.7 |0.12 |
|619 |0.0 |0.00 |
|688 |4.5 |0.65 |
|762 |4.0 |0.52 |

2. Transient and Switching Performance

In order to test the transient performance, each CTs were tested by injecting the primary current that above its rated value. This experiment was tested separately between Magnetic CT and Optical CT because each CT has their own rated value. Secondary Magnetic CT was set to 400/5 A and the output of regulating transformer was set to give the current of 425A. Figure [ ] shows the result of this experiment where we can see the transient current reached the steady state after 3 cycles with the sine signal was distorted.

[pic]
Figure 4

The Optical CT was then being tested using the same circuit in order to make the regulating transformer to give output of 5840A. As we can see in Figure [ ], the sine wave was not distorted.

[pic]
Figure 5

3. Step Response Test

DC bias circuit which has 2.75A current pulse was constructed to test the step response of the Optical CT only which contain the thyristor switch connected to 48VDC and 0.1 ( shunt resistor as shows in Figure [ ]. The purpose of this test is to prove that the Optical CT can measure DC current. [pic]
Figure 6

Figure [ ] shows the result of this testing whereby the Optical CT delays the current impulse signal by 40(s. This result shows that the Optical CT can be use in measuring DC current without any saturation.

[pic]
Figure 7

4. Temperature Performance of Optical CT

For this testing, electric heater is used to heat the Optical CT sensor head and thermocouple is used to measure the heat. While heating up the Optical CT, the system was loaded with 392A and the temperature of sensor head was increased. The result of this experiment is shown in Table [ ] where proved that the temperature does not effect the Optical CT output.

|Temperature (oC) |Optical CT (Amp) |Magnetic CT (Amp) |
|23.5 |392 |392 |
|27.5 |392 |392 |
|30.0 |392 |391 |
|39.8 |393 |393 |
|43.5 |393 |393 |
|47.3 |390 |390 |

5. Thermal modeling of Oil-Filled Current Transformer

Hot spot temperature measurement is using fiber optic embedded inside the CT as shown in Figure [ ] which then it will be connected to a controller. Besides, the termocouples was used for redundancy. [pic]
Figure 8 Top oil temperature was measure using the K-type thermocouples at the top of the tank as shown in Figure [ ]. The experiment consists of step load changes, 24-hour load cycle and ramp load profile where two different rating Ct was used.
[pic]
Figure 9

i) Step Profiles [pic]

From the figure above, it can be seen that the HST is always above the TOT for lower ratio CT. This step profile is used to determine the input parameters for modeling the TOT and HST.

ii) 24-Hour and Ramp Profile

[pic]

[pic]

From the figure above, it can be seen that the HST measured from the experiment remain above the TOT measured at all values of load currents while in the high ratio CT, the TOT rises faster than HST. This caused by the higher copper losses in the primary winding compare to the core losses.

CHAPTER 3
ADVANTAGE & DISADVANTAGE

After done various experiments for Optical CT and Magnetic CT comparison, it can be conclude that the Optical CT has various advantages compared to Magnetic CT. First experiment is comparison of the steady state performance of CT. The experiment was carried out by analyze the output of Optical CT and Magnetic CT with high precision CT. The Optical CT give the output with less than 0.3% difference compared to Magnetic CT. This mean, the Optical CT has high accuracy when measuring the high voltage current. Secondly, the transient and switching performance of CT was tested. From this experiment, it can be seen that the transient of Magnetic CT reached to their steady state after three cycles with a distortion. It went the same as for Optical CT but gives no distortion sine wave. It can be conclude that the Optical CT can give a better result in measuring during transient and switching period. Step response test was conducted only for Optical CT to show the capability of the Optical CT in measuring DC current. The result show us the proved by delaying the current impulse only by 40(s. Magnetic CT was unable to measure the DC current and it gives an advantage to the utility sector to utilize the benefit of installing the Optical CT in the substation. At last, the temperature performance of Optical CT was analyzed by increasing the sensor head temperature by mean of electrical heater. The result shows that the temperature will not affect the performance of both Optical and Magnetic CT. The last experiment is regarding the Top Oil Temperature (TOT) and Hot Spot Temperature (HST) modeling of oil-filled CT. It can be conclude that the model of TOT and HST has been successfully design to measure of TOT and HST of CT. This online monitoring may not be practical but the data extracted from this experiment will be useful in the future offline analysis of CT’s temperature measurement.

CHAPTER 4
SUMMARY

The Optical CT provide more advantages for the application in power system industries. From the experiment conducted, the Optical CT compared to Magnetic CT has a better accuracy in measuring steady state performance and the sine wave of Optical CT during transient and switching performance is not distorted and the transient current reached the steady state after three cycles. It also provide the capability in measuring DC current compared to Magnetic CT. Lastly, the heat of CT will not affect the CT performance while in service. Beside all the experimental results, the Optical CT can provide several of benefit or advantages as listed below compared to conventional CT: 1. Non-conductive 2. Lightweight compared to conventional CT 3. Wider bandwidth for the Faraday effect-based measuring system 4. Offer three different output signals; Low Energy Analog (LEA), High Energy Analog (HEA) and digital output
The Top Oil Temperature and Hot Spot Temperature modeling significant in measuring the CT while in service (online). This method although its costly, it provide initial data for future offline analysis of current transformer.

...Electrical Power Assignment 1 Task 3 – Q4 3 Phase Transformer Construction Diagram Description As shown in the diagram above, a three phase has three sets of iron cores instead of the one of a single phase transformer. Each ‘leg’ of the transformer has its own primary and secondary windings. Each primary winding will have the same amount of coils as will each secondary winding. The three primary windings (shown above as P1, P2 and P3) and the secondary windings (shown above as S1, S2 and S3) can be connected in either a star or delta arrangement to give a required output. Also the output could be wired in a zigzag arrangement for special purposes where a phase shift of 30° is required. Core Types There are a few different types of core that are used in transformers, some are described below: Solid Cores Solid cores are just made of solid iron and are used in circuits such as switch mode power supplies which operate above mains frequencies and even up to a few kHz. The materials used in these cores combine high magnetic permeability with high electrical resistivity. Laminated Steel Cores These cores are made from layers of high permeability silicon steel and are usually used at power and audio frequencies. They are used because in a solid core at high frequencies ‘eddy currents’ are formed. The laminations confine eddy currents inside each lamination and so decrease the losses. Air Cores An air core is simply a transformer without any core......

Porter Analysis Electricity Industry

...The electric utility industry generates, transmits and delivers electrical power to consumers, businesses and governments. Today there are three primary business structures in the regulated electrical utility industry—public companies owned by shareholders, municipally owned companies, and those owned and operated by the federal government. Shareholder owned companies are the largest group, providing half of all electricity in the United States. Burning fossil fuels to power steam turbines produces over half of electricity consumed today.1 Other generation methods include harvesting the power of nuclear reactions to power turbines and, increasingly, renewable methods such as wind or water-powered generation. Unlike most manufactured products electricity cannot be stored, so a complex and delicate fabric of transmission systems (know as the power grid) exists to deliver power when and where it is needed. Many firms involved in the generation of power are also involved in its transmission and sale to end-users, making vertical integration commonplace within the industry. This end-to-end integration, as well as end users’ dependence on electricity, has led to historically strict government control of the industry. The most significant piece of regulation in the last century was known as the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935 also known as PUHCA. The act had a profound effect on the regulated electrical industry. First, and most importantly, it set limits on the......

...n one of the few in-depth treatments of power in conflict situations, Hubert M. Blalock begins by acknowledging something most of us know but rarely state: "The concept of power is both exceedingly slippery to pin down and yet indispensable in enabling one to analyze...."[1] Having defined power, as in physics, as having both potential and kinetic forms, he opts for the latter usage alone in his text. That is, he acknowledges power as both the capacity of an individual or group to accomplish something, and the actual doing of something, but he limits his discussion to "actions actually accomplished." Additional insights into understanding power are offered by Beyond Intractability project participants. This has two advantages. First, it dovetails with how most of us think about power most of the time. Second, it is easier to quantify. It is much easier to measure something that has occurred than something that is a possibility. An actual occurrence is a fact that can be checked. There may be disagreement on the sources of its occurrence, but the argument about its occurrence is likely to be short-lived if adequate facts can be brought to bear. If one side has won in a disagreement (in that it has gotten the other to do something it wanted), we have prima facie evidence that the first is more powerful -- or at least has exerted more power -- than the second. Since concerns of relative power are important in conflicts, it is helpful to have a clear picture of who......

Solar Power as Away of Providing Heat and Electrical Energy from Heat

...Solar power as away of providing heat and electrical energy from heat The Sun the heat of the sun is about equivalent to burning a billion trillion tons of coal an hour. Even though only a small fraction of that heat ever reaches the earth it is still more then enough to power the whole world. People seemed to realize the importance of the sun around 30,000 BC. This was when people first started planting crops of wheat. They realized plants did better when planted in the sun over the shade. This caused them to worship the sun as a God. Many cultures built large and extravagant temples to worship the sun in. Other cultures built places to observe the sun in, such as Stonehenge in England. Different Types of Solar Panels There are three main types of solar panels. They are flat plate collectors, focusing collectors, and solar cells. The first kind is a flat plate collector. Flat plate collectors are fastened on the top of the roof of a house. They usually either heat the house or its water. A flat plate collector consists of a black rectangular frame, two or three sheets of glass, and copper plumbing. A flat plat collector uses the greenhouse affect. The sun rays go through the glass but can’t get out through the glass. The sun rays heat the water-filled copper tubes. Then the water is used to heat the home or water. Another type of a solar panel is a focusing collector. They consist of a mirror or......

The first issue was about how to evaluate managers’ performances in situations where the numbers were distorted by uncontrollable factors. So Rob Cushman could try to dothe following:- Call some energy companies and ask them to diagnose the transformer problem further and figureout if there any other ways to fix the problem permanently.- Have some back up electrical units, such as generators, just in case the power failure continues toexist.- See if there is a pattern in the power failures. If there is, try to set a schedule around the power cutand work as fast an efficient as possible while power is still available.The second was an issue as to whether to increase the proportion of total compensationthat was linked to individual performance evaluations. And Rob Cushman could figurethis out by doing the following:- Create a report based system where managers can use a check list and/or a critique worksheet andwrite down what tasks their team has completed for the day or week.

Fist let’s use Porter’s Five Forces to analyze Cooper Industry.  Bargaining power of new entrants Level: Medium Cooper tried to fulfill their goals of growth and diversification through acquisitions, and they did success. The diversification allowed Cooper to do the business in many different industries. For example, Cooper began the diversification in 1967 when it acquired the Lufkin Rule Company- a hand tool business. After that, it acquired two more hand tool business companies in 1968 and 1970. Although there were competitors in all the industries that Cooper diversified into, the operation strategy makes Cooper have a stable market shares in different industries.  Bargaining power of substitutes. Level: Medium Low Cooper actually had a pretty wide range of product market, which is the result of their acquisition. There will be even less substitution if Cooper focus on their business of making engines and compressors to propel natural gas through pipelines. Later, with a wider products market, Cooper can definitely decrease the power of their substitutes.  Bargaining power of supplier...

It represents these temperatures are the allowed ranges, not the actual set points.  We usually set the temperature between 76 and 80 during the summer and between 66 and 68 in the winter when in heating mode. So, I would have opinion that employees would have find it ‘’OVERKILL’’. Few suggestions that would make a company to energy oriented usage. a. Keep the air conditioner not cooler then 78* and the heater not warmer than the 68*, set the AC temp higher or the heat temp. Lower when you are away, or turn it off completely if no required. b. Microwaves, personal refrigerators, and fans will be banned if any electrical cord found to be cut, THATS SEEMS TO BE INSANE. As it cannot be considered as the fault of all employees, it make occur by default as well. c. Use the ceiling fans found in all the rooms to stay cooler and to help AC do its job. As well as computers turned off after 7pm would make me feel THATS FINE, as it helps to save energy. d. Recycling barrels availability throughout the building seems to be impressive idea.

...Homework 1 Directions: Read the paragraph below. It comes from a real situation encountered in one of the Big Three U.S. automobile manufacturers. Diagnose the errors that might have been made in managing across the various functional areas that were involved in designing the automobile. The total amount of electrical power in a vehicle is determined by the capacity of the alternator. The power must serve over twenty subsystems, such as the stereo, the engine, the instrument panel, and so on. These subsystems are developed and controlled by separate “chimney” organizations, and power allocations must be made for each subsystem. The problem was, in this vehicle program, when the requirements of all the chimneys and teams were added up, they equaled 125 percent of the capacity of the alternator. Keith, who had recently taken over as head of this vehicle program (which had made changes in direction and was behind schedule to begin with), called a meeting of the Program Steering Committee designed to resolve this conflict and reach a compromise. However, many of the chimney representatives who were members of the team came to this meeting with instructions from their bosses [who, incidentally, did their performance appraisals] not to make any compromises, but to make certain that their chimney “got what it needed” and “didn’t lose out.” After Keith presented the group with the problem and the need to reach a compromise solution, their response surprised him: “It’s not our......
