tested in six earth fault cases, faults in the forward and reverse direction per phase. isolation, unshielded wires, defective power optimizers, or an inverter internal fault can cause DC current leakage to ground (PE - protective earth). An external fault in the star side will result in current flowing in the line current transformer of the affected phase and at the same time a balancing current flows in the neutral current transformer, hence the resultant current in the relay is therefore zero.So this REF relay will not be actuated for external earth fault. NICEIC considers that the second method is the more suitable for lighting circuits. For basic model, please refer to K-3837 earth fault detector. [8] R. Kaczmarek, W. Y. Huang, and P.
