Modern relays capture a great deal of information on faults and switchgear operation. They also contain more advanced communications than earlier devices. This trial is intended to develop a real-world solution that first allows these communications to reduce the amount of wiring required (hence reducing both installation cost and the risk of mal-operation), and second provides a platform for the kind of advanced analysis being developed by Strathclyde under Supergen V.
This project is intended to enhance Northern Powergrid understanding with regard to switchgear operations, by integrating the information available from modern electronic relays.
