Analyze Relay Event Data—Plot relay oscillography, display phasor magnitudes and angles, and monitor digital status. Navigate through events with integrated zoom and pan functions.

Time-Align Event Reports—Easily coordinate multiple event report times for accurate comparison and analysis of signals from multiple relays or past event reports.

Perform Calculations—Create equations to analyze specific trip conditions. Instantly plot calculation results for quick event analysis. The built-in function library creates endless calculation possibilities.

COMTRADE Viewer—View COMTRADE reports from a variety of sources together in synchroWAVe Event for complete COMTRADE file analysis.

Visualize Distance Elements—Analyze protective relay distance element operation with the exact mho circle diagram. The mho circle diagram enables plotting apparent impedance and distance element characteristics for analysis.

Save Analysis Setup Time—Create personal and relay specific analysis templates to provide a customized view into the relay’s operation. Save and share templates for more efficient post-event analysis.

Understand Differential Element Performance—View the current differential ratios plotted directly onto the complex alpha plane. Supporting both two- and multi-terminal lines, you can overlay the differential ratio with the restraint region to quickly identify when the differential element picked up. Experiment with alternative restraint regions to explore the effects of alternate protection settings.

Advanced Fault Location Visualization—The SEL-411L Advanced Line Differential Protection, Automation, and Control System and the SEL-T400L Time-Domain Line Protection relay can record traveling-wave data to provide highly accurate fault locating. synchroWAVe Event generates a Bewley lattice diagram from the traveling-wave data to enable visualization, analysis, and understanding of the traveling waves recorded for an event.
