The objective of this project was to perform fault & protection coordination studies for the Springvale Mine.


  • Collection and review of power system data;
  • Modelling the network in PTW tools;
  • Fault level calculations for 66kV, 3.3kV, 1kV and 415V networks;
  • Calculation and review of overcurrent and earth fault protection settings associated with the above network. Up to ± 90 overcurrent & Earth fault protection devices in the mine.
  • Updating the SLDs as per the latest development of the mine;
  • Compilation of the technical report.
