Protection and control platform (By relay type)

Current differential relay

The ALP series covers differential protection and accounts for current transformer errors by providing a two slope differential setting characteristic. The events of transformer ultrasaturation during inrush and very low second harmonic content are properly covered by the unique SECURE blocking algorithm.

  • Application for up to six winding transformers
  • DNP3 and IEC61850 GOOSE communication
  • Cybersecure to help meet NERC CIP requirements

Hardware configurations

  • ALP-2000 : Combination of twelve (12) current and voltage inputs, six (6) digital inputs, four (4) relay outputs, two (2) high-speed power outputs, up to four (4) fiber Ethernet ports

 

  • ALP-4000: Combination of twenty-four (24) current and voltage inputs in a single device, sixteen (16) digital inputs, sixteen (16) relay outputs, eight (8) high-speed power outputs, up to four (4) fiber Ethernet ports
