Overcurrent protection for low-power current transformer

Overcurrent protection for low-power current transformer – SIPROTEC 7SJ81

SIPROTEC 7SJ81

The SIPROTEC 7SJ81 provides 4 low-power current transformer inputs and optionally 3 low-power voltage transformer inputs. With the same low-power current transformer (LPCT) a wide range of primary rated line currents can be covered. Objects with rated currents in the range of 20 A to 2500 A can be protected when using low-power current transform­ers.

Overcurrent protection for low-power current transformer SIPROTEC 7SJ81

Features

The following low-power current transformer ratios are suitable for the following primary current operating ranges: 

  • 300 A /225 mV for a primary operating current range of 60 A to 630 A
  • 600 A /225 mV for a primary operating current range of 120 A to 1250 A
  • 1250 A /225 mV for a primary operating current range of 250 A to 2500 A
  • 100 A /225mV for a primary operating current range of 20 A to 200 A 

The SIPROTEC 7SJ81 units can be used for line protection of high and medium-voltage networks with grounded, low-resistance grounded, isolated or a compensated neutral point.
