What are the different protection systems used to protect the transformer internally and externall..

Answer / remus de jesus

In our design, the common protection would be:
1. Bucholz Relay (96) - initiates transformer differential
lockout
2. Pressure Relief (63) - initiates transformer
differential lockout
3. Winding Temperature (26W) - initiates first a timer set
between 0 to 30 minutes, and after a pre-determined time
will initiate differential lockout
4. Oil Temperature (26Q) - initiates a timer set between 0
to 30 minutes, and after a pre-determined time will
initiate differential lockout
5. Sudden Pressure - initiates transformer differential
lockout
6. Transformer Overcurrent (50/51/50N/51N) - initiates
tripping of low side breaker
7. Ground Protection/Ground Overcurrent Relay (51G) - the
connected relay in the neutral of the wye winding is used
generally to protect bank circuit from ground faults

Fire fighting protection protects transformer from external
fires. But if fire is caused internally, this mechanism
provides no protection of the transformer at all.

What are the different protection systems used to protect the transformer internally and externall..

Answer / minal

one of the protection systems used in the transformer is
Gas operated Bucholz relay.
The transformer is filled with oil. On passing current
through it, gas bubbles are formed inside it.After the
formation of gases, immediately the relay gets operated &
it will sense the gas which gets build inside the
transformer. These gases are harmful and which switchoff
the transformer. This relay sense the gas & trip off the
transformer before a fault is occured
