2C138 SEF Relay
The main earth fault protection relays in distributions systems, power stations & large manufacturing / processing plants can fail to detect a high impedance breakdown to earth causing hazard to human life & potential damage to plant & equipment. In these & other situations demanding extra sensitive earth fault protection, the 2C138 relay using solid state techniques, can be applied to detect earth currents down to 0.5% of the CT nominal current.
The relay is tuned to reject 3rd & higher harmonic frequencies to avoid problems under quiescent conditions. An adjustable time delay is built in to provide stability during switching & other transient disturbances & to allow adequate grading with other protection systems at high fault current levels.
