Current injection device REK 510

Current injection device for earth-fault protection of a synchronous machine rotor

The purpose of the rotor earth-fault protection is to detect earth faults in the excitation circuit of synchronous machines.

The excitation field circuit is isolated during normal operating conditions. The field circuit can be exposed to abnormal mechanical or thermal stress due to vibrations, overcurrent, choked cooling medium flow, etc. This may result in the breakdown of the insulation between the field winding and the rotor iron at a point exposed to excessive stress. A single earth fault is not very dangerous and does not cause immediate damage, because the fault current is small due to the low voltage. More dangerous is a second earth fault that appears as a rotor winding interturn fault and causes severe magnetic unbalance and heavy rotor vibrations leading to severe damage.

For generators with slip rings the rotor insulation resistance is sometimes reduced due to the accumulated coal dust layer produced by the coal brushes.

 

Why ABB?

  • Prevents severe damage because of worn windings
  • Rotor earth-fault protection for the excitation circuit of synchronous machine
