Meet with SEL R&D and application engineers to see the newest technologies and discuss real-world applications from SEL for power system protection and control. You’ll learn about the world’s first true traveling wave protection—SEL’s high-performance time-domain line protection that securely and dramatically reduces relay tripping times—as well as our new lightweight metal powerCORE Substation Control Enclosures that keep your substation projects on time and on budget. You’ll also hear about new, simple, secure SEL Time-Domain Link (TiDL) technology to modernize your substation. In addition, we will have hands-on demonstrations to show you how to build fast, secure, and deterministic Ethernet communications networks for high-speed protection with game-changing software-defined networking (SDN) technology, how to significantly speed up distribution protection schemes using SEL’s wireless fault transmitters, and more!

Technology highlights include:


SEL-FT50/SEL-FR12 Fault Transmitter and Receiver System

The SEL-FT50 and SEL-FR12 Fault Transmitter and Receiver System speeds up distribution protection schemes without sacrificing sensitivity. Reduce trip times from seconds to milliseconds.


SEL-2740S Software-Defined Network Switch

The SEL-2740S Software-Defined Network Switch is designed for the harsh environments commonly found in the energy and utility sectors. The SEL-2740S is the industry's first software-defined networking (SDN)-enabled switch. Built for the highest reliability and best performance, it revolutionizes the way networks are engineered and maintained.


SEL-T400L Time-Domain Line Protection

With breakthrough time-domain technologies, the SEL-T400L Time-Domain Line Protection securely trips in as fast as 1 millisecond, records events with sampling up to 1 MHz, and detects faults accurately to the nearest tower with single- and double-ended fault locators.


Microgrid Control Systems

SEL's microgrid control systems (MGCs) are efficient, reliable, and secure solutions for guaranteeing uninterrupted energy delivery to your facility and customers. They control and protect both renewable and conventional generation. SEL systems allow you to operate independently, ensuring a constant supply of energy after the loss of the utility point of common coupling (PCC).


SEL-751 Feeder Protection Relay

The SEL-751 Feeder Protection Relay is ideal for directional overcurrent, fault location, arc-flash detection, and high-impedance fault detection applications. Flexible I/O options, easy mounting, and fast settings make the SEL-751 the right solution for industrial and utility feeder protection. The SEL-751 provides complete feeder protection, with overcurrent, overvoltage, undervoltage, directional power, IEC cable/line thermal, vector shift, sensitive earth fault (SEF), load encroachment, and frequency elements.


Time-Domain Link (TiDL) Technology

There’s no comparison. TiDL is changing the industry perception of digital substation solutions because of its speed, security, and simplicity.


SEL-3360 Compact Industrial Computer

The tough SEL-3360 Compact Industrial Computer is built to withstand harsh environments in utility substations, industrial control systems, and automation systems. By eliminating all moving parts (including rotating hard drives and fans) and using error-correcting code (ECC) memory technology, SEL compact industrial computers have over ten times the mean time between failures (MTBF) of typical industrial computers. Designed, manufactured, and tested to the same standards as our protective relays, every SEL-3360 comes with an unprecedented ten-year worldwide SEL warranty.
