This paper represents the work done in the field of distribution system. Power distribution systems are the
portion of electrical systems that connects consumers to the source of bulk power. Distribution System consists of
several substationswhich includes one or more feeders. Radial feeder system consists of having only one path for
power to flow from the source to each consumer. The protective systems of radial feeder are essential for the same. In
this paper we understand various protective schemes to avoid malfunctioning of electromechanical relay). Through
this paperwe are preparing operation of radial feeder protection as real substation environment. Through this
protection concept, the students, in addition to getting familiar with the fundamentals of protection, learned how
different protection schemes are wired and how they operate in a real power system.
