A better & more feasible approach for Open-Phase Fault Analysis

by dexter.galindo@etap.com1. May 2015 11:00

As debuted in our October 2014 Newsletter edition, ETAP offers a comprehensive graphical Open-Phase Fault Analysis (OPFA) capability to simulate and analyze the effects of an open phase condition.  This feature was the result of a close collaboration between ETAP R&D division, ETAP Nuclear Utility Users Group (NUUG) and the nuclear industry.  The ETAP NUUG demonstrated that using ETAP for OPFA was far more feasible than alternative methods, i.e. using an Electro-Magnetic Transient Program (EMTP).  ETAP OPFA has in turn saved utilities millions of dollars that would have been required by more costly approaches.

Recently, based on the request and sponsorship by Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), researchers at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) conducted a project aimed at benchmarking ETAP OPFA results against the results of elaborate physical models.  The conclusion of the research confirmed that ETAP OPFA results for transformers under open phase conditions were almost identical with the benchmark. This further validates ETAP as a superior choice for simulating open phase fault conditions.
