Abstract

This paper presents a novel protection technique for the detection of inter-turn faults in synchronous machines. It is based on the calculation of voltage in the stator windings from the usual phases and neutral voltage, typically available in all
generator protection relays. The existing turn-to-turn protection mechanisms require additional voltage transformers. The main contribution of this technique is that it can be implemented without using any additional voltage transformers. This
technique has been successfully tested in a special synchronous machine with taps in the stator windings, where turn-to-turn faults have been created.
