FAULT DETECTION ON DIRECT CURRENT RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEMS

Due to the similarity between fault currents and load currents, it has been difficult to adequately protect a dc transit system, particularly against low current, arcing faults. The electrical characteristics of these systems are reviewed and analyzed to develop the basic design requirements for their proper protection. An analysis is made of a new device designed specifically for protection against low current faults. Test results are reported, and application guidelines are formulated.
