System Protection and Relaying

Reliability and safety. Those two words are at the heart of what system protection is all about. While system protection and protective relaying in general are designed to protect the system infrastructure, they are also in place to minimize outages and prevent injuries to utility staff or the public. In addition, modern digital relays provide valuable metering, status and fault data all which allow the utility to better monitor the system and be able to determine what caused a fault in order to restore service and correct the problem.

Protection and relaying also play a part in the industrial/commercial realm. Whether for protection of motors, cable plant or switchgear, or for minimizing arc flash hazards, the settings developed for protective devices is critical for protection of investment and personnel. ESC engineering provides skilled capabilities in this area following a consistent, documented approach giving the client peace of mind that protection is in place.
