Abstract:
The present invention provides an add-on breaker-failure protection device and its method of resetting to prevent mal-operation from subsidence current. The present invention provides economical solution as duplication of circuit breakers (CBs) in substations is not realistic. This invention, after measuring the decaying DC component within a one-cycle moving window, generates a reset signal to the existing breaker-failure function. The method provides clear differentiation between the alternating pattern of fault current and exponential decaying pattern in subsidence current is necessary to prevent the mal-operation of probable breaker-failure functions. The presented invention presents a simpler structure that can be easily integrated to the existing circuit breaker and relay setup. The add-on circuit completely removes the effect of decaying DC component present in the CT secondary current. Hence, it clearly differentiates between the actual fault current and subsidence current in the CT secondary to prevent the mal-operation of breaker-failure function due to subsidence current of longer duration. 

 
THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
