Time-domain line protection sets a new standard for transmission line protection. With or without communications, it provides ultra-high-speed trip times, superior security, and simplicity.
The heart of time-domain protection architecture is a traveling-wave differential element (TW87) over a dedicated point-to-point fiber channel. This is combined with three other protection elements in the relay to provide comprehensive, secure transmission line protection.
Our time-domain products include MHz sampling that gathers detailed information about fault events, enabling SEL time-domain protection to register system conditions that other methods simply cannot see. This is why it’s able to make secure tripping decisions with unprecedented speed—5 milliseconds or less. And even the smallest fraction of time can make a large cumulative difference in preventing damage and wear to transformers, cables, and circuit breakers under fault conditions.
Nothing else can match the accuracy, speed, and security of a time-domain protection system.
Deployed together, the SEL-T401L Ultra-High-Speed Line Relay with time-domain protection and the SEL-411L Advanced Line Differential Protection, Automation, and Control System provide a complete transmission line protection solution.
An evolution of SEL’s groundbreaking SEL-T400L Time-Domain Line Protection relay, this is a high-performance line protection relay with a complete suite of primary and backup protection functions.
Improve the reliability of your line protection with the high-speed operation and increased fault location accuracy of the SEL-T400L.
Ethernet connectivity and secure network management for SCADA, engineering access, and control. Deploy the SEL-2730M with the SEL-T400L or SEL-T401L to integrate with your substation Ethernet network.
A wide-area networking multiplexer optimized for utility and industrial applications. The ICON is configurable for SONET or Ethernet transport. It is also ideal for migrating legacy network technologies to a converged network solution. Deploy the ICON with the SEL-T400L or SEL-T401L to implement double-ended traveling-wave fault location over a multiplexed network.
Receive Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) time signals, and distribute precise time via multiple output protocols, including IRIG-B and the Network Time Protocol (NTP).
Let us partner with you to create an SEL solution for your system. From engineering studies and system design through commissioning and training, SEL engineers bring inventiveness and a deep understanding of the fundamental principles of electric power systems to every project. No matter how complex or sophisticated the system, we can help you protect, simplify, and control it.
