Making electric power safer, more reliable, and more economical can often involve upgrades to the power system. In a new white paper, SEL Engineering Services Director Peter Allen discusses the benefits of relay replacement and how they outweigh the initial capital investment.
In his paper, “Implement a Relay Replacement Program to Enhance System Performance and Flexibility and Reduce Costs,” Allen shares the benefits of a relay replacement program, particularly how newer devices can monitor and control a power system. He outlines a path for using adaptable digital relay technology to maintain power supply flexibility in the face of a changing industry and changing laws. Other areas of emphasis include fast fault locating, time-domain line protection, traveling-wave technology, and cybersecurity.
