### Overview

Any internal fault in the capacitor bank leads to unbalance in the Shunt capacitor banks (SCB) and severe damage to the entire bank, which can result in an explosion or fire. Generally internal faults in the shunt capacitor bank are due to the open or short-circuit of the capacitor units or elements. The “Current unbalance protection of SCB” function uses measured phase current (I3P) and measured unbalance current (I3UNB). Based on the measured unbalance current deviation from the stored reference current value, the function identifies the severity of the internal fault in the SCB.

For more detailed information on “Current unbalance protection of SCB” function, refer to ABB, Relion 670 Series manuals.
