Power System Protection: Transformer Protection
What you'll learn
- Protection of power transformers
- Use of phase differential (87P) and ground differential (87G) protection in power transformers
- Use of instantaneous and inverse-time overcurrent (50/51), neutral inverse-time overcurrent (51N), and volts/hertz (24) protection in power transformers
- How to use the SEL-487E protective relay for protecting power transformers
- Understanding of power system analysis
This course is part of a multi-part course series about one of the main areas of power engineering: power system protection and control. Power system protection and control ensures the reliable continuous operation of power systems and is therefore an essential area of power engineering. In this course, you will learn about the different protective elements used for the protection of power transformers.
We will begin the course by giving a brief review of how power transformers are connected and how they operate, so that we can understand why and how to protect them from faults and abnormal operating conditions. We will then move on to discuss in great detail all the different protective elements that are used in industry to protect transformers. These include: phase differential (87P), ground differential (87G), instantaneous and inverse-time overcurrent (50/51), neutral inverse-time overcurrent (51N), and volts/hertz (24). We will end the course by explaining how an SEL-487E protective relay can be used for the protection of a power transformer.
By understanding how power transformers operate and how to implement different protective elements for their protection, you will be able to design robust protection schemes to protect these components from faults and abnormal operating conditions.

My name is Ricardo Romero and I am an Electrical Engineer with over ten years of experience in Power Systems. I obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Electrical Engineering from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I am also a licensed Professional Engineer in Power Systems in the states of Arizona, Louisiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia in the United States.
Although my professional experience is mainly in Power Systems, I am also passionate about other topics in Electrical Engineering including Analog Electronics, Control Systems, Digital Design, Digital Signal Processing, Electric Machinery, and Power Electronics. I gained knowledge in these areas of Electrical Engineering during my undergraduate and graduate studies, as well as during my professional career, and am excited to teach about them in Udemy.
My goal is to create high quality courses that cover both the theory behind a topic as well as real-world applications. Should you have any questions regarding any of my courses, please feel free to contact me.
