APP 651R: SEL-651R Advanced Recloser Control


This course is designed for utility and industrial protection engineers and power system consultants.

APP 651R provides an introduction to the SEL-651R Advanced Recloser Control. The course will also cover basic recloser control functions, advanced capabilities, and application examples, including Automatic Network Reconfiguration, single-phase trip and reclose, and harmonic analysis. APP 651R also includes introduction to the acSELerator QuickSet Design Templates for creating customized settings templates. Students (in groups of two) will work directly with the SEL-651R, performing hands-on communications, settings, and testing.
