Abstract

Ferroresonance is a complex non-linear electrical phenomenon that can make thermal and dielectric problems to the electric power equipment. Ferroresonance causes overcurrents and overvoltages which is dangerous for electrical equipment. In this paper, ferroresonance investigation will be carried out for the 33kV/110V VT at PMU Kota Kemuning, Malaysia using ATP-EMTP simulation. Different preconditions of ferroresonance modes were simulated to ascertain possible ferroresonance conditions in reality compare with simulated values. The effect of changing the values of series capacitor is considered. The purpose of this series of simulations is to determine the range of the series capacitance value within which the ferroresonance is likely to occur.
