Note: – At least 10 experiments should be performed out of which 3 should be simulation based.

(A) Hardware Based:

  1. To determine direct axis reactance (xd) and quadrature axis reactance (xq) of a salient pole alternator.
  2. To determine negative and zero sequence reactances of an alternator.
  3. To determine sub transient direct axis reactance (xd) and sub transient quadrature axis

reactance (xq) of an alternator

  1. To determine fault current for L-G, L-L, L-L-G and L-L-L faults at the terminals of an

alternator at very low excitation

  1. To study the IDMT over current relay and determine the time current characteristics
  2. To study percentage differential relay
  3. To study Impedance, MHO and Reactance type distance relays
  4. To determine location of fault in a cable using cable fault locator
