This project is to investigate the viability of using a reverse VAr technique for generator protection to reduce the cost of interface protection. More specifically it is to undertake a literature survey of the technique to identify the existing worldwide experience, develop a software model of the Loss of Mains (LoM) relay based on the reverse VAr principle and test the relay model by means of transient simulation.
To investigate the performance of the reverse reactive power flows for use in detecting loss of mains at generation connections.
