This guide is intended to aid those engineers who have reevaluated the risks associated with faults within network vaults, particularly for those network vaults located within or near highrise buildings. It will also identify currently available devices that are being used in network transformer protection schemes. These devices should act to sense the fault and initiate fault interruption locally or remotely, there by minimizing damage and restoration time. These devices will be described as to their fault detecting capabilities. An example utilizing a number of protective schemes is presented in Appendix B.
Working Group Details
IEEE Guide for Protection of Secondary Network Systems
Current available devices that are being used in secondary network systems protections schemes are covered in this guide. These devices act to sense the fault and initiate fault interruption locally or remotely, thereby minimizing damage and restoration time.
IEEE Guide for the Protection of Network Transformers
Guidelines for the application of network protectors are established. The use of network transformers and protectors with distributed resources is addressed.
