This paper presents a new digital distance relaying scheme which takes care of a simultaneous open conductor and ground fault occurring coincidently on the same phase at the same point on a series-compensated double-circuit line. The effect of series compensation, mutual zero-sequence coupling, remote infeed/outfeed, and fault resistance on the relay reach has been considered by the proposed scheme. The conventional digital distance relay having facility of series compensation fails to provide adequate protection in the presence of such conditions. The proposed scheme is based on the derivation of the compensated values of impedance using symmetrical component theory. To validate the proposed scheme, numerous computer simulations have been carried out using MATLAB/SIMULINK software on an existing 400-kV, 300-km-long series-compensated double-circuit transmission line. At the end, a comparative evaluation between the proposed scheme and the conventional scheme having a facility of series compensation is carried out. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme since the percentage error is within ±4.19%.
