Short Circuit Studies 1) Short circuit study as an engineering tool: The main objective of the short circuit study is to determine the interrupting capability required for circuit breakers at each switching location. For this type of application, the maximum currents the breaker may be exposed to during the three phase balanced faults on each side of the breaker need to be determined. For protective relaying design it is necessary to determine voltages and currents for balanced and unbalanced faults at many locations in the system. 2)Short Circuit Problem Formulation: Assumptions: 1) Normally, all shunt elements including loads and line charging are neglected. Loads may be represented with constant load impedance models. 2) Each generator is represented by a constant voltage behind its subtransient reactance. 3) All tap changing transformers are assumed to be at their nominal tap settings. 4) Balanced transmission lines are assumed. For a balanced three phase fault only the positive sequence network is excited. For an unbalanced fault, all three sequence networks may be excited. 5) The negative and positive sequence networks are normally assumed equal and coupling between adjacent circuits is taken into account in the zero sequence network only.
3) All voltages behind the generator reactances are assumed equal in magnitude and phase angle (normally one per unit). Therefore no current is flowing in any portion of the network prior to the fault.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
