Functions

DIGSI 5 permits all functions to be configured and combined as required.

  • Minimum tripping time: 19 ms
  • Main protection function is differential protection with adaptive algorithm for maximum sensitivity and stability even with the most different transformer errors, current-transformer saturation and capacitive charging currents
  • Directional backup protection and various additional functions
  • Detection of ground faults of any type in compensated or isolated electrical power systems using the following functions: 3I0>, V0>, transient ground fault, cos φ, sin φ, harmonic, dir. Detection of intermittent ground faults and admittance
  • Ground fault detection using the pulse detection method
  • Detection of current-transformer saturation
  • Fault locator plus for accurate fault location with inhomogenous line sections and targeted automatic overhead-line section reclosing (AREC)
  • Arc protection
  • Automatic frequency relief for underfrequency load shedding, taking changed infeed conditions due to decentralized power generation into consideration
  • Power protection, configurable as active or reactive power protection
  • Directional reactive power undervoltage protection (QU protection)
  • Detection of current and voltage signals up to the 50th harmonic with high accuracy for selected protection functions (such as thermal overload protection) and operational measured values
  • Control, synchrocheck and switchgear interlocking protection
  • Graphical logic editor to create powerful automation functions in the device
  • Single-line representation in small or large display
  • Integrated electrical Ethernet RJ45 for DIGSI 5 and IEC 61850 (reporting and GOOSE)
  • 2 optional pluggable communication modules, usable for different and redundant protocols (IEC 61850-8-1, IEC 60870-5-103, IEC 60870-5-104, Modbus TCP, DNP3 serial and TCP, PROFINET IO)
  • Serial protection data communication via optical fibers, two-wire connections and communication networks (SDH networks, MPLS electrical power systems, for example using IEEE C37.94, and others), including automatic switchover between ring and chain topology.
  • Reliable data transmission via PRP and HSR redundancy protocols
  • Extensive cyber security functionality, such as role-based access control (RBAC), protocolling security-related events  or signed firmware
  • Simple, quick and secure access to device data via a standard Web browser – without additional software
  • Phasor measurement unit (PMU) for synchrophasor measured values and IEEE C37.118 protocol
  • Time synchronization using IEEE 1588
  • Powerful fault recording (buffer for a max. record time of 80 sec. at 8 kHz or 320 sec. at 2 kHz)
  • Auxiliary functions for simple tests and commissioning

Applications

Benefits
