4 Why Study Faults? Determine currents and voltages in the system under fault conditions Use information to set protective devices Determine withstand capability that system equipment must have: Insulating level Fault current capability of circuit breakers: Maximum momentary current Interrupting current

13 AC Decrement In the previous analysis we treated the generator as a constant voltage behind a constant impedance for each phase. The constant inductance is valid for steady state conditions but for transient conditions, the generator inductance is not constant. Recall that for steady state conditions, the
