Abstract

In light of the escalating complexity and ever-changing dynamics within power systems, the necessity for resilient and effective protection schemes is paramount to uphold grid stability and reliability. Among these, Overcurrent Relays (OCRs) stand as pivotal components, tasked with the crucial role of detecting and mitigating faults within power networks. This research presents an innovative approach towards enhancing OCRs utilizing the Raspberry Pi Pico, a microcontroller board, in conjunction with adaptive strategies. The primary aim is to augment the performance and versatility of OCRs, ensuring their adeptness in promptly and accurately addressing varied fault scenarios encountered within power systems. Through the integration of adaptive strategies and the utilization of Raspberry Pi Pico, this paper seeks to contribute towards advancing the efficacy and adaptability of OCRs, thereby bolstering the overall resilience and dependability of power system protection mechanisms. The proposed approach for optimizing OCRs is evaluated through experimentation and analysis, demonstrating improved performance and adaptability compared to traditional methods. Results indicate enhanced fault detection and mitigation capabilities, underscoring the potential of the Raspberry Pi Pico-based OCR system in addressing the evolving challenges within modern power systems. The findings of this research contribute valuable insights to the field of power system protection, paving the way for more resilient and dependable grid operation.
