Abstract
This report covers research and development of ground-fault relays for use on low-voltage alternating-current utilization circuits in mining. Sensitive relaying employs very low pickup levels such that, when used in conjunction with very high resistance grounding, the exposure of a human to ventricular fibrillation is significantly reduced. To delineate the desired relay characteristics, the report reviews and updates previous research in this area. The critical relay component for sensitive ground-fault relays has been found to be the current transformer. Electronics for two prototype relays-- an analog relay and a digital relay--have been produced through the research, and information is presented so that either may be duplicated.
