Functions

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

  • Motor protection functions: Startup time monitoring, thermal overload protection for stator and rotor, restart inhibit, unbalanced-load protection, load-jam protection
  • Stator and bearing temperature monitoring via temperature sensors with external RTD unit.
  • Differential motor protection as fast short-circuit protection for motors of high power
  • Sensitive ground-fault protection (non-directional, directional) to detect stator ground faults
  • Directional and non-directional overcurrent protection (short- circuit protection) with 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 
  • Overvoltage and undervoltage protection
  • Arc protection
  • Power protection, configurable as active or reactive power 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
  • PQ-Basic: voltage unbalance; voltage changes: overvoltage, dip, interruption; TDD, THD and Harmonics

  • Graphical logic editor to create powerful automation functions in the device
  • Integrated electrical Ethernet RJ45 for DIGSI 5 and IEC 61850 (reporting and GOOSE)
  • Up to 4 pluggable communication modules, usable for different and redundant protocols (IEC 61850-8-1, IEC 61850-9-2 Client, IEC 60870-5-103, IEC 60870-5-104, Modbus TCP, DNP3 serial and TCP, PROFINET IO, PROFINET IO S2 redundancy)
  • Virtual network sharing (IEEE 802.1Q - VLAN)
  • Reliable data transmission via PRP and HSR redundancy protocols
  • Extensive cybersecurity functionality, such as role-based access control (RBAC), protocolling security-related events, signed firmware or authenticated network access IEEE 802.1X
  • Simple, quick and secure access to the device via a standard Web browser to display all information and diagnostic data, as well as vector diagrams, single-line and device display pages
  • Secure serial protection data communication, also over great distances and all available physical media (optical fiber, two-wire connections and communication networks)
  • Capturing operational measured variables and protection function measured values for the evaluation of the systems,to support commissioning, and to analyze faults
  • Synchrophasor measured values with the IEEE C37.118 Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU)
  • 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
  • Flexibly adjustable I/O quantity structure within the scope of the SIPROTEC 5 modular system

 

Applications

  • Protection against thermal overload of the stator from overcurrent, cooling problems or pollution
  • Protection against thermal overload of the rotor during startup due to: Frequent startups, excessively long startups or blocked rotor
  • Monitoring for voltage unbalance or phase outage
  • Monitoring the thermal state and the bearing temperatures with  temperature measurement
  • Detection of idling drives of pumps and compressors, for example
  • Detection of ground faults in the motor
  • Protection against motor short circuits
  • Protection against instability due to undervoltage
  • Acquisition and recording of power quality data in the medium voltage and subordinate low voltage network.

Benefits

  • Safety due to powerful protection functions
  • Purposeful and easy handling of devices and software thanks to a user-friendly design
  • Cybersecurity in accordance with NERC CIP and BDEW Whitepaper requirements
  • Highest availability even under extreme environmental conditions by “conformal coating“ of electronic boards
  • Full compatibility between IEC 61850 Editions 1, 2.0  and 2.1
