Pilot wire current differential feeder protection
The 7PG21 is a three-phase unit differential protection used to detect in zone phase and earth faults. The relay is applied to the overhead line and underground cable circuits as well as shorter circuits such as interconnectors.
Relays (and associated CTs) are installed at each end of the protected circuit and connected together with dedicated metallic pilot wires.
This established protection system provides simple, robust protection of proven performance facilitating straightforward installation, commissioning and maintenance.
Relays have 3 current inputs and are housed in E6 cases.
Additional relays and components can be added to the basic protection to provide:
Increased insulation level
Pilot wire supervision to monitor the integrity of the pilot circuit.
Current differential protection over a single pair of pilot wires
Optional pilot wire supervision
Optional overcurrent guard (check)
Optional unstabilising / intertripping
