powerMAX Special Protection Schemes for Utilities

Remedial Action Schemes for Wide-Area Protection, Control, and Monitoring

PowerMAX-Remedial Action Schemes

SEL powerMAX remedial action scheme (RAS) solutions for utilities operate transmission corridors at a higher capacity than ever before. Daily revenues are increased, and in some cases, over 50 percent more power can be transmitted across existing transmission lines. This frees up billions of dollars of capital expenditure to enhance existing transmission lines instead of building new transmission lines. Distributed computing and communications create smart transmission grid management for adding renewable and distributed energy resources. SEL powerMAX RAS solutions are commonly used by utilities for wide-area monitoring, control, and integration of large wind power stations in transmission systems.
