## RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CURRENT AND VOLTAGE IN

VARIOUS SYSTEM COMPONENTS
Resistor
The current and voltage are in phase in a purely resistive circuit, as shown in Figure
2-1.

## Figure 2-1. Resistor Circuit

Inductor
The current lags the voltage by /2 radians or 90o in a purely inductive circuit, as
shown in Figure 2-2.

## Phasors and System Arrangements

Capacitor
The current leads the voltage by /2 radians or 90o in a purely capacitive circuit, as
shown in Figure 2-3.

## Figure 2-3. Capacitor Circuit

Complex Impedance
In general, impedance is a complex number of the form Z = R+ jX, where R
(resistance) is the real part and X (reactance) is the reactive or imaginary part.
The inductive reactance (XL) in a coil or wire that is measured in ohms () is equal to
2 times the frequency (f) times the inductance (L) of the coil that is measured in
Henries (H) or XL = 2fL. The capacitive reactance (XC) of a capacitor that is
measured in ohms () is equal to the reciprocal of 2 times the frequency (f) times
the capacitance that is measured in farads (F) or XC = 1/(2fC).
Because impedance is a complex number it may be represented on the complex
number plane; however, because resistance is never negative, only the first and
fourth quadrants are involved in the analysis. The resistance (R) is located on the
positive real axis, inductive reactance (XL) is located on the positive reactance
(imaginary) axis, and capacitive reactance (XC) is located on the negative reactance
(imaginary) axis, as shown in Figure 2-4.

## Phasors and System Arrangements

Complex Impedance

## An impedance triangle is often used as a graphical representation of impedance.

The impedance triangle consists of vectors that represent resistance (R) and
reactance ( jX), as shown in Figure 2-5. The vector Z is the sum of the two vectors
R and jX.

## THREE-PHASE POWER LOADS

Introduction
A three-phase system has three sources of power with a certain time interval
between each source. It is very easy to generate three-phase voltages by
connecting three windings 120o apart on a generator. Figure 2-6 shows a threephase system in an ABC phase rotation sequence.
Three wires of a three-phase system can provide 173% ( 3) more power than two
wires of a single-phase system. When both single-phase and three-phase loads are
supplied from the same power supply, a three-phase, four-wire system (3, 4-wire),
which is called a wye (Y) connection, is used to supply power. If there are only
three-phase loads, a three-phase, three wire system (3, 2-wire), which is called a
delta () connection, is used to supply power.

Figure 2-16. Example of a Single Bus Arrangement

The single-bus scheme is not normally used for major substations. Dependence on
one main bus can cause serious outage in the event of breakers or bus failure. The
station must be de-energized in order to carry out bus maintenance or add bus
extensions. Although the protective relaying is relatively simple, the single bus
scheme is considered inflexible and subject to complete outage.

## DOUBLE BUS - DOUBLE BREAKER

Line

Line

Transformer
Figure 2-17. Examples of Double Bus-Double Breaker Scheme

The double-bus-double-breaker scheme requires two circuit breakers for each feeder
circuit. Normally each circuit is connected to both busses. In some cases, half of the
circuits could operate on each bus. For these cases, bus or breaker failure would
cause the loss of half the circuits. The location of the main bus must be such as to
prevent faults spreading to both buses. The use of two breakers per circuit makes
this scheme expensive. However, it represents a high order of reliability when all
circuits are connected to operate on both busses.

## The main-and-transfer-bus scheme adds a transfer bus to the single-bus scheme.

An extra bus-tie circuit breaker is provided to tie the main and transfer busses
together.
When a circuit breaker is removed from service for maintenance, the bus tie circuit
breaker is used to keep that circuit energized. Unless the protective relays are also
transferred, the bus-ti relaying must be capable of protecting transmission lines or
generators. This is considered rather unsatisfactory since relaying selectivity is poor.
A satisfactory alternative consists of connecting the line and bus relaying to current
transformers located on the lines rather than on the breakers. For this arrangement
line and bus relaying need not be transferred when a circuit breaker is taken out of
service for maintenance, with the bus-tie breaker used to keep the circuit energized.
If the main bus is ever taken out of service for maintenance, no circuit breakers
remain to protect any of the feeder circuits. Failure of any breaker or failure of the
main bus can cause complete loss of service of the station.
Disconnect switch operation with the main-and-transfer-bus scheme can lead to
operator error, injury, and possible shutdown.

## Figure 2-19. Example of a Double Bus Arrangement Scheme

This scheme used two main busses, and each circuit includes two bus selector
disconnect switches. A bus tie circuit connects to the two main busses and, when
closed, allows transfer of a feeder from one bus to the other bus without deenergizing the feeder circuit by operating the bus selector disconnect switches. The
circuits may all operate from the No. 1 main bus, or half of the circuits may be
operated off either bus. In the first case, the station will be out of service for bus or
breaker failure. In the second case, half of the circuits would be lost for bus or
breaker failure.
In some cases circuits operate from both the No. 1 and No. 2 bus and the bus-tie
breaker is normally operated closed. For this type of operation a very selective bus
protective relaying scheme is required in order to prevent complete loss of the
station for a fault on either bus.
Disconnect switch operation becomes quite involved with the possibility of operator
error, injury and possible shutdown. The double-bus-single-breaker scheme is poor
in reliability and is not used for important substations.

## Figure 2-20. Example of a Ring Bus Arrangement

In the ring-bus scheme, the breakers are arranged in a ring with circuits connected
between breakers. There is the same number of circuits as there are breakers.
During normal operation, all breakers are closed. For a circuit fault, two breakers are
tripped, and in the event one of the breakers fails to operate to clear the fault, an
additional circuit will be tripped by operation of breaker-failure backup relays. During
breaker maintenance, the ring is broken, but all lines remain in service.
The circuits connecter to the ring are arranged so that sources are alternated with
loads. For an extended circuit outage, the line disconnects switch may be opened
and the ring can be closed
No changes to protective relays are required for any of the various operating
conditions or during maintenance.
The ring bus scheme is economical in cost, has good reliability, is safe for operation,
is flexible, and is normally considered suitable for important substations up to a limit
of five circuits. Protective relaying and automatic reclosing are more complex than
for previous schemes described. It is common practice to build major substations
initially as a ringbus; for more than five outgoing circuits, the ring bus is usually
developed to the breaker-and-a-half scheme.

## The breaker-and-a-half scheme, sometimes called the three-switch scheme, has

three breakers in series between the main busses. Two circuits are connected
between the three breakers, hence the term breaker and a half. This pattern is
repeated along the main busses so that one and a half breakers are used for each
circuit.
Under normal operating conditions, all breakers are closed and both busses are
energized. AA circuit is tripped by opening the two associated circuit breakers. Tie
breaker failure will trip one additional circuit, but no additional circuit is lost if a line
trip involves failure of a bus tie breaker.
Either bus may be taken out of service at any time with no loss of service. With
sources connected opposite loads, it is possible to operate with both busses out of
service. Breaker maintenance can be done with no loss of service, no relay changes,
and simple operation of the breaker disconnects.
The breaker and a half arrangement is more expensive than the other schemes,
except the double breaker-double-bus scheme. However, the breaker-and-a-half
scheme is superior in flexibility, reliability, and safety. Protective relaying and
automatic reclosing schemes are more complex than for other schemes.

## Phasors and System Arrangements

RELIABILITY COMPARISONS
The various schemes have been compared to emphasize their advantages and
disadvantages. The basis of comparison to be employed is the economic justification
of a particular degree of reliability. The determination of the degree of reliability
involves an appraisal of anticipated operating conditions and the continuity of service
required by the load to be served.
