The paper addresses one of the new and most important issues arising when Low Power Voltage Transformers (LPVTs) are used in power network substations for evaluating, among others, the residual voltage measurement. Conversely to open-triangle inductive instrument transformers, the use of phase voltage transformers for measuring the residual voltage gets challenging due to the very high accuracy required for the three LPVTs. In the paper, a general expression to estimate the residual voltage measurement uncertainty, starting from the LPVTs accuracy, is presented. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is then confirmed with both Monte Carlo simulations and actual measurements on a general three-phase system.

Abstract

The paper addresses one of the new and most important issues arising when Low Power Voltage Transformers (LPVTs) are used in power network substations for evaluating, among others, the residual voltage measurement. Conversely to open-triangle inductive instrument transformers, the use of phase voltage transformers for measuring the residual voltage gets challenging due to the very high accuracy required for the three LPVTs. In the paper, a general expression to estimate the residual voltage measurement uncertainty, starting from the LPVTs accuracy, is presented. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is then confirmed with both Monte Carlo simulations and actual measurements on a general three-phase system.
