Abstract

In an apparatus protection perspective, generators constitute a special class of power network equipment because faults are very rare but can be highly destructive and therefore very costly when they occur. If for most utilities, generation integrity must be preserved by avoiding erroneous tripping, removing a generator in case of a serious fault is also a primary if not an absolute requirement. Furthermore, protection has to be provided for out-of-range operation normally not found in other types of equipment such as overvoltage, overexcitation, limited frequency or speed range, etc.
