The testing and verification of protection devices and arrangements introduces a number of issues. This happens because the main function of protection devices is related to operation under fault conditions so these devices cannot be tested under normal operating conditions. This problem is worsened by the growing complexity of protection arrangements, application of protection relays with extensive software functionalities, and frequently used Ethernet peer-to-peer logic.

This course is intended for electrical engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of protection relay testing and commissioning. Presented details cover basic testing terminology, various tests including factory production, type tests, commissioning and maintenance tests. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to address different tests, related procedures, outcomes, simulation hardware and software and procedures during protection relay commissioning and occasional maintenance.
