Type MVAJ Tripping and Control Relays

Figure 1: Type MVAJ relay withdrawn from case

Features
High speed operation High and low burden alternatives Low burden models suitable for ac and dc operation Models surge proof against high capacitance discharge currents in the dc supply system, are available Control relays immune to ac can be supplied

Table 1 lists the general characteristics and includes information on how the relay burden is modified at, or just after operation. Economy indicates that the burden is reduced to a low value. Instantaneous cut off is a feature of some hand and electrically reset elements and reduces the burden to zero, whilst others incorporate a time delay to enable series elements to operate. This time delay is 40ms to 60ms in all cases except that of the types MVAJ 26 and 56 in which the delay is 2s. All low burden relays are suitable for ac or dc operation. All high burden relays are for dc operation only.

circuits. In particular they can be used in distributed tripping or control relay contact logic schemes, where the initiating contact may be remote from the relay. The relays have a high burden which is either cut off at operation or economised to a low figure, either instantaneously or after a time delay. The high burden provides immunity to capacitance discharge currents, which can result at the inception of an earth fault on battery wiring and immunity to the subsequent leakage current. The high burden also permits the use of supervision relays such as type MVAX where the wiring is at risk and provides reliable operation of series elements such as repeat relays type MCAA. For the latter purpose type MVAJ relays can be provided with a time delayed economising feature.

Models Available
Type MVAJ relays may broadly be divided into three groups: High burden tripping relays complying with ESI 48-4 Class EB2 Low burden tripping relays which comply with ESI 48-4 Class EB1 Control relays which meet the requirements of National Grid Company SPEC.NGTS 2.19:1996

circuit to be connected directly to the dc supply via case terminals. Since this reduces the necessary break duty on the associated protection output relay, this feature is particularly useful when several tripping relays are operated in parallel.
Control relay type MVAJ 34

Description
High burden tripping relays types MVAJ 21, 23, 24,25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 51, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58 and 59

These relays are suitable for applications where immunity to capacitance discharge and high minimum operation currents are not required.
Low burden self-reset tripping relay type MVAJ 17

The type MVAJ 17 is a low burden self-resetting tripping relay which complies with the provisions of NGC SPEC. NGTS3.63:1996. Its main feature is the facility which allows the economising element

This is a dual-rated electrically reset relay, the main function of which is to switch protection and autoreclosing equipment in and out of service from a remote point via pilot wires. It complies with NGC SPEC. NGTS2.19:1996.

All relays use common standardised parts. Versions have one, two or four contact stacks depending upon the number of output contacts required.
Types MVAJ 21, 51 high burden self-resetting relays

These relays use a contact on the main contact stack to energise a separate, rear-mounted economising

element. After operation this reduces the burden by switching in resistance in series with the main element and switching out shunt resistance. Figure 2 shows a typical circuit diagram for self-resetting relays of this type with high speed economy. When the main attracted armature unit RL1 is energised by the protection contact PR, a contact RL1-a energises auxiliary element RL2. When contacts RL2-a and RL2-b open, resistor R4 is put in series with RL1 while the circuit to resistor R2 is broken.
Types MVAJ 23, 24, 25, 53, 54, 55 high burden tripping relays with instantaneous cut-off

mechanical latching of the contacts has occurred. Types MVAJ 23 and 53 hand reset whilst the types MVAJ 24 and 54 have a second coil which, when energised, unlatches the relay resetting mechanism. Types MVAJ 25 and 55 may be reset either by hand or electrically, by means of the same design of mechanism. See Figure 3.
Type MVAJ 26 and 56 time delay on drop-off relays

conveniently provide an auxiliary contact with a dwell time long enough to ensure correct tripping of the lower voltage circuit breaker. Typically the relay is initiated by transformer protection, such as overall differential, restricted earth fault, and Buchholz relays, in arrangements where both the HV and LV circuit breakers are to be tripped simultaneously. The HV circuit breaker may be expected to trip more quickly than the LV breaker. So the tripping signal is maintained by the delayed resetting, to ensure complete clearance by the LV circuit breaker, even though the fault may have been cleared largely by the HV circuit breaker and the protection has started to reset. The MVAJ 26 and 56 relays can accept either a fleeting initiation or persistent initiation. With the latter, the relay will provide a tripping signal of corresponding duration plus the 2 seconds delay.

The types MVAJ 26 and 56 relays have been specially designed for applications requiring a tripping relay which is self-resetting after a nominal delay of 2 seconds. This relay may be used, for example, for intertripping between the higher voltage and lower voltage circuit breakers of a large three phase power transformer. This may become necessary when the higher voltage circuit breaker is tripped after a heavy internal fault, by protection which cannot

These relays incorporate a break contact in series with the operate coil. Located on the main contact stack, it is arranged to break the coil circuit once the relay mechanism has completely operated. This reduces the relay burden to zero as soon as

Figure 2: MVAJ 21 self-reset with instantaneous economy (high burden) 4

The relay consists of a main attracted armature element with a hand reset operation indicator and one electromagnet with two contact stacks.
Types MVAJ 27, 28, 29, 57, 58, 59 relays with time delayed drop-off.

These relays are hand reset, electrically reset and hand/ electrically reset respectively and all have time delayed cut-off circuits. The burden is reduced to zero 40/ 60ms after energisation by the use of a second attracted armature element mounted in the rear of the case. This time delay allows ample time for any flagging or auxiliary element in series with the tripping relay to operate before cut-off. Figure 4 shows a typical circuit diagram for an electrically reset trip relay with time delayed cut-off feature.

When the contact PR is closed, relays RL1 (operate) and RL2(t) operate. After operation the current in the coil of RL1 (operate) is maintained by contact RL2-a; contacts RL1-a and RL1-b open, whilst RL1-c closes. The opening of RL1-a causes relay RL2(t) to start to reset. This resetting is delayed by 40-60ms by means of a copper slug fitted to the front of RL2(t). When RL2(t) resets, RL2-a opens, reducing the current through RL1 (operate) coil to zero. The relay is now latched mechanically into the operated state. It may now be reset via an external contact or push-button which energises the RL1 (reset) coil via the closed contact RL1-c.

Low burden tripping relays types MVAJ 11, 13, 14, 15, 41, 43, 44, 45

These are low burden versions of types MVAJ 21, 23, 24, 25, 51, 53, 54 and 55 relays respectively. They comply with the less onerous requirements of ESI 48-4, Class EB1.
