Correct Answer - Option 1 : 20


Plug setting multiplier is the ratio of fault current and the product of plug setting and CT ratio.

Plug setting multiplier \(= \frac{{fault\;current}}{{plug\;setting \times CT\;ratio}}\)


Given: Fault current is 4000 A, CT ratio is  400/5 A, Relay setting is 50%.

Plug setting = relay setting × secondary CT current

= 0.5 × 5 = 2.5

CT ratio \(= \frac{{400}}{5} = 80\)

Plug setting multiplier \(= \frac{{4000}}{{2.5 \times 80}} = 20\)
