pro·tec·tive block

an incompletely understood mechanism whereby a pacemaker is protected from being discharged by the impulse from another center; the mechanism, usually conceived as an encircling zone of unidirectionally refractory tissue permitting egress of impulses from the center but preventing access to the center, is seen in operation in ventricular parasystole where the parasystolic center is protected from discharge by the sinus pacemaker and so is able to maintain its intrinsic rhythm undisturbed.

For example, insert the new transformer substation on the both ends buses of the line; the equivalent impedance of the power system becomes smaller so that the proportion of the series capacitor compensation capacitance value relative to the system impedance increases, thus affecting the movement behavior of the protection. At present, there is a special case, namely, due to the system renovation or expansion, in the series compensated lines access a new substation, the original series capacitor compensation capacitive reactance does not change, so the new line compensation degree is exceed 50%, while also makes the series compensation system structure changed; the system operation mode increases.
