over & under excitation are related to voltage output of gen set..

overexcite generator and you will send system into overvoltage condition..

underexcite gen anf you will send system into undervoltage condition..

There is a bit more to it than that but in lamens terms that is the basics of it.. I would suggest you do some reading about voltage regulators, and generator excitation systems..

dear sir

thanks for nice and early reply on over and under excitation protection.as per your reply meaning of under and over excitation is related to generator termianal voltage but in protection theory over and under excitation phenomina is devoleped by reactive power ,power factor and stator current of generator .but how can this factor affect the excitation and condition create of over and under excitation of generator .

if possible clear my doubt.

Dear Mr. ekiechle,

I want to supplememnt to your views.

The Power Factor will be low when Under Excitation is experienced, and Viseversa. Beyond Saturation Point of Magnetisation Caracter - over excitation will not take place.

AVR will be put in to strain - beyond a particular limit, leading to tripping of Circuit Breaker.

Suresh,

Here is some material from Basler that has good information:
