The cup structure Fig. 11. Induction-cup structure. employs a hollow cylindrical rotor, whereas the double-loop structure employs two loops at right angles to one another. The cup structure may have additional poles between those shown in Fig. 11. Functionally, both structures are practically identical. These structures are more efficient torque producers than either the shaded-pole or the watthour-meter structures, and they are the type used in high-speed relays. Single-Induction-Loop Structure.
Such relays may be polarized either by a permanent magnet or by a field coil connected to be energized by the voltage of the circuit. A field coil would be used if the relay were calibrated to operate in terms of the magnitude of power (watts) in the circuit. With adjustable calibration, the relay would also have overcurrent (or overpower) or undercurrent (or underpower) characteristics, or both, in addition to being directional. VOLTAGE-DIRECTIONAL RELAYS Voltage-directional relays are the same as current-directional relays except for the number of turns and the resistance of the armature coil, and possibly except for the polarizing source.
3. Inverse-time curves. The time curves of Fig. 3 can be used to estimate not only how long it will take the relay to close its contacts at a given multiple of pickup and for any time adjustment but also how far the relay disc will travel toward the contact-closed position within any time interval. For example, assume that the No. 5 time-dial adjustment is used, and that the multiple of pickup is 3. 45 seconds to close its contacts. 45 seconds, the relay would close its contacts if the No. 3 time-dial adjustment were used.
