Distribution Feeder Protection & Control
Instructor: Dr. Murty Yalla

Distribution protection is a complex scenario with many elements: relayed feeder breakers, recloser controlled feeder breakers, line reclosers, sectionalizing switches, sectionalizers and fuses. The application and location of the protective and sectionalizing infrastructure predicates the application and coordination of protection. Compounding the complexity is the application of DMS/DA and presence of DER/DG. The session covers the distribution topology and protective infrastructure, and application of settable of relays and recloser controls.
