Basic Power Systems(2142404)
“Switch Gear &Protection” subject gives general awareness of different Protective Equipment for Power Systems such as Relays, Circuit Breakers, and Isolators. It also explains about protective system- how it works and where it works? Different applications of the relays for different elements of power system is also discussed in the subject. To introduce students to power system protection and switchgear. To teach students theory and applications of the main components used in power system protection for electric machines, transformers, bus bars, overhead and underground feeders. To teach students the theory, construction, applications of main types Circuit breakers, Relays for protection of generators, transformers and protection of feeders from over- voltages and other hazards. It emphasis on neutral grounding for overall protection. To develop an ability and skill to design the feasible protection systems needed for each main part of a power system in students.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1.Student gains knowledge on different Protective Equipment or Power Systems
2. Know about various protective systems- how it works and where it works?
3. Different applications of the relays, circuit breakers, grounding for different elements of power system is also discussed in the subject.
4. Ability to discuss Recovery and Restriking
5. Ability to express Oil Circuit Breaker, Air Blast Circuit Breakers, SF6 Circuit Breaker.
6.Abiity to identify DMT, IDMT type relays
7. Ability to identify Rotor, Stator Faults, interturn faults and their protection.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
