1. Introduction/Background
The df/dt settings were carried out for the individual regions separately in past as a safety net of the respective regions. However, with the synchronous interconnection of Northern Regional grid and central grid comprising of Eastern region, Western region and North Eastern Region on 26th August 2006 at 1222 hrs the system size has increased from the order of 25000 MW to 60000 MW. Consequently inertia of the combined system has increased, resulting into lower rate of change of frequency for a given loss of generation or load. Therefore, the existing defense mechanism based on rate of change of frequency relay (or df/dt relay) for protection the system from collapse following a loss of generation has become practically ineffective. Present df/dt setting in the Northern region is as tabulated below. Table-1 Existing df/dt relay setting in Northern Region Stage Initiating Hz/Sec Frequency (Hz)

The present sub-group has been constituted by the Operation Co-ordination SubCommittee (OCC) of the Northern Region Power Committee (NRPC) in its 9th meeting held on 15th Dec 2006 to review the setting of df/dt relays. The sub-group was advised to submit its report by 12th Feb 2007. Due to other various pressing issues such as weather related trippings in Northern Region during January-07, February-07 and March-07, the sub-group could not finalise its recommendations. The first sub-group meeting was organized on 18th Jan 2007 and the following was decided. 1. The combined North & Central Grid requires relief through df/dt relays to take care of network loading conditions following a large loss of generation. 2. The combined system has witnessed several incidents of loss of generation up to 1500 MW since the synchronization of Northern Grid with the Central Grid. However, in none of the above occasions, the df/dt relays with present setting have not operated. A list of such incident in the Northern Region is enclosed at annex-I. 3. It was observed that some df/dt relays have a limited storage facility for frequency data. However, this was not archived and analyzed as a matter of practice and therefore practical observation on actual df/dt recorded for different events is not available. Therefore the df/dt relay settings for the combined North-Central grid would be worked out through the following methods.

It is also suggested that the findings of this sub-group might be circulated in Western. 49. It can be appreciated that these values give us good indication of rate of change of the frequency in the system. analysis and discussions this report has been prepared and covers estimation of df/dt for different situations. The group also felt that to have greater insight into functioning of the relay specially rate of change of frequency measuring principle and limitations if any. 5.9 Hz) at 220 kV Gazipur and 220 kV Narela in the DTL system. Estimation of rate of change of frequency (df/dt): Power system frequency drops when the power supply in the system becomes insufficient due to loss of generation or tie line support. It was observed that the Vindhyachal HVDC back-to-back station had a digital recording of frequency at 100ms interval. Overloading of the generators is followed by considerable change in system voltages. Thus this goldmine of field data was also used to evaluate ‘H’ for some of the tripping incidents. The RRVPN and BBMB were also requested to revise the df/dt setting as above in their system at selected few locations. The findings of the same are given at annex-I & II. In the intervening period literature survey was carried out and work was done as decided in first meeting of the subgroup. International experience of df/dt relaying in very large power grids might also be studied separately.e. 2. simulation data and other findings were discussed and analyzed at second meeting of the subgroup at 10th April 2007. Based on these study.

the change in machine speed is oscillatory in nature. the generator’s governing system utilizes the spinning reserve (if available). its rate of change df/dt is an instantaneous indicator of power deficiency and can enable recognition of the MW imbalance. df = ∆ P f o dt -----(2) Therefore. The time taken by the system to settle to a low frequency would depend upon the inertia of the system. Therefore the simplified equation without significant loss of information is 2H . In addition. While the low frequency ‘f ’ is the final result of the power deficiency. However. The general equation of the system behavior following a loss of generation or load is as below . However. changing Pmech. df f o dt H fo df/dt PL PG D ∆f ∆P + Dx ∆f = ∆ P -----(1) Where = System Inertia Constant on system base (seconds) = Frequency at the time of disturbance (Hz) =Rate of change of frequency (Hz/Sec) =( PL-PG)/PG . If the amount of frequency drop is large.fluctuation in load power Pelec. The typical values of the H as given below: 3 . df/dt can be computed if we have the value the system inertia constant (H). before frequency settles to lower level. The system inertia constant is defined as the kinetic energy stored in the system per MVA. Therefore it is important to grasp the characteristics of the frequency response of the power system to loss of generation in order to stabilize the system faster and avoid catastrophe. altering frequency ‘f ’ and its rate of change df/dt. Thus Pmech and Pelec change in time. there are oscillations and these could lead to the higher line loading and consequently tripping of the generators/tie lines. These oscillations depend on the response of the generators and are seen differently at different locations. Higher the inertia of the system larger would be the time and vice versa. refer [3] 2H . Power change (per unit in system load base) =Load prior to generation Loss in MW =System Generation after Loss in MW =Power/frequency characteristic of the system in pu/Hz =Change in frequency This general equation can be simplified by considering the damping effect to be negligible during early onset of the event. protection systems for the low frequency may be activated in the power plants and the consequent shutdown of plant may lead to the separation of the interconnected system or black-out of the power system.

A number of incidents since NR-Central grid synchronization were analyzed.

e. The accuracy of df/dt measurement depends on the accuracy of frequency measurements. Refer Annex-V: ABB document on Frequency relay behaviour. Result of the estimation based on loss of generation simulation shows that the inertia constant of the North-Central combined system is around 6. Refer Annex-II Frequency recorded at 10-samples/second (i. 3. df/dt Measurement principle by relays: Going through the technical information provided by various relay manufacturers. Higher value of df/dt is observed near the node where generation is lost.5 seconds in the system load base.6 mHz considering the time resolution of 1 micro second. 4.4 seconds in the system load base.1 Hz/sec was observed. Different values of df/dt are observed at different locations for the same loss of generation. This frequency measurement is carried out through time measurement of a cycle (time between two zero crossing).On none of the occasion loss of generation up to 1500MW in the interconnected system. 1311 hrs rate of change of more than 0. Rate of change of frequency observed at NR and WR side bus of Vindhyachal are different for same incident of loss of generation. and calculate the df/dt every 5ms.1. However. 100 millisecond intervals) at Vindhyachal back to back station for both NR side bus as well as WR side bus was taken for analysis. The measurements static error depends on the quartz crystal’s absolute accuracy.2. The rate of change of frequency measurement is based on two successive frequency measurements and the time difference between the frequency measurements.1 Hz/sec was observed. it is inferred that relay adopts following measurement principles.3. It is observed that it contain oscillatory component. on one of the occasion of system split on 28th Feb 2007.8 to 10. df/dt of more than 0.6 to 9. The measured frequency value for df/dt calculation is averaged over three cycles.5. Refer Annex-IV. Based on rate of change of frequency using simulation studies Power system dynamics simulation studies were carried out for measuring the frequency transients. Refer Annex-I Result of the estimation based on loss of generation field data shows that the inertia constant of the North-Central combined system is around 5. 4. They operate when the frequency 6 . To restrain the influence of this component average of rate of change of frequency over 200 milliseconds was taken and from that inertia constant of the system was determined. 4. Some relays measure the change in frequency (∆ f) over a time interval (∆t=100ms). The biggest error in frequency measurement is in the range of +/.

fo . The system inertia constant for the combined North-Central grid based on simulation studies and field data works out to about 5. 4.000 MW system would result in 2H =50 x 1500/(60000-1500) 2x8 =0. The system inertia constant value based on individual generator’s inertia constant as calculated above (3.5 % or +/-55m Hz/s.4 sec.9 Hz /0. From the response of df/dt relay set at 49. Technical data sheet of AREVA manufactured MICOM relays indicates that for frequency supervised rate of change of frequency ‘f + df/dt’ protection accuracy is +/.6 to 10.change exceeds the setting value 50 consecutive times. whichever is greater. DTL has reported that df/dt relays with modified settings have operated on two occasions during the observation period . Initial findings and conclusion: 5. df/dt estimation for combined North-Central System.93 secs) seems to be inaccurate since with this value of inertia constant frequency trend of 0. Without a significant loss of information in the result inertia constant value of 8.0 can be taken for the finding out the frequency trend following a loss of generation.075 Hz/sec is observed.On one occasion it has operated on 9th Feb 2007 when there were multiple trippings going on in the system due to fog and on another occasion it has operated on 28th Feb 2007 when Northern region system (Size about 18000 MW) got separated from central grid losing about 600 MW generation through tie line. Analysis of 100 millisecond interval frequency received from Vindhyachal also indicates that on none of the occasion of loss of generation listed in Annex-I frequency trend of more than 0. Based on this a 1500 MW loss at a frequency of 50 Hz in a 60.1 Hz per sec as decided in the first meeting of sub group it has been observed that these relay had not operated on any of the occasion of loss of generation listed in Annex-I.08 Hz/sec and. However. Refer Annex-VII 5.1.11 Hz/sec 7 df dt = ∆P . for a 2000 MW loss it would be 0. The wide variation in system inertia may be due to daily variation in generation dispatch and system load.3.1 Hz/sec can be achieved even with a loss of only 960 MW. Refer Annex-VI: Toshiba Corporation document on Frequency and Voltage protection.

1 Hz/sec at 50 Hz /49. • • Each region could have a df/dt setting at a higher value say 0.2.1 Hz/sec Many df/dt relays have a minimum setting of 0. Further as mentioned in section – 4 error of +/.3. Some of the single largest contingency in the combined system are: Sl No. The quantum would depend on net import by any zone/flow gate. • Recommended df/dt settings and further work: The combined North Central system could have a large number of df/dt relays at minimum setting of 0.9 Hz based on single largest contingency.5. Available df/dt relay settings: The minimum df/dt relay setting available is 0. Further work is required to be done in the area of employing Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) to detect loss of generation & activating load shedding in neighbouring nodes.2 Hz/sec only.2 Hz /Sec and above as that would signify separation of system. 8 .5 % or +/. 5.mHz (whichever is greater) is expected. Based on the proximity of loss of generation some relays will pick up and some will not because df/dt will not be same everywhere. 1 2 3 4 5 Contingency Loss of Talchar STPS (StageI & Stage II) Loss of Vindhyachal STPs Loss of Korba STPS Loss of Singrauli STPS Loss of Rihand STPS MW Loss 3000 3260 2100 2000 2000 Approximate load relief through such relay may be taken as 4000 MW spread over combined North Central system.
