Synchronization

03/17/2017 3:41 PM

Two substations "A" & "B" located 10 Km apart need to be synchronized using OPGW wire at 220KV. however The CVT at Substation "A" is of 100V secondary rating while that at Substation B is of 110V secondary rating. synchronizer is located at substation B. can the synchronizer do the job with different CVT ratings? what solution is needed to match CVT ratios ( CVT replacement is not economical now).

Most modern autosynchronizers are software configurable to account for different PT ratios. Hope you paid for that option, RTFM to find out.

Yes, but unlike you, I won't be cheating my client by pretending to possess expertise that I don't have. Just imagine how costly it will be to your client if you you were foolish enough to follow someone's free advice, and it turned out they're as unethical as you and recommended the wrong product.

Your avatar speaks volumes about you and your attitude towards the engineering profession. Now go find someone willing to work for free, their advice will be worth every penny that you paid for it.
