Open phase detection system for start-up transformers in nuclear generating stations (RTC-2016-5160-3)

L. Rouco E. Lobato F.M. Echavarren K. Doenges

March 2016 - December 2019

Funding entity Ministerio de Economía, Industria y Competitividad

Participated by Iberdrola Generación Nuclear


The aim of this project is the development of a detection system of open phase conditions in the start-up transformers of nuclear generating stations. The challenge comes from the fact that start-up transformers are at no load. The project involves simulation studies, development of small-scale laboratory protopytes and the implementation of a full scale prototype in Cofrentes nuclear generating station.


Project cofunded by the Ministerio de Economía, Industria y Competitividad, and by EDRF funds, under the thematic objective “Strengthening research, technological development and innovation”.


    Research topics:
  • *Steady-state: load flows, analysis of power system constraints, optimal load flows, voltage control ancilliary service,short-circuits, protections in transmission and ditribution networks
  • *Electromagnetic transients: lightning and switching overvoltages in overhead and GIS substations, location of surge arresters
