Project Description

Series 500

Control and Automation

The Series 500 address the most demanding applications, such as utility transmission and distribution systems, power plants, transportation or industrial applications, by combining diverse I/O options, advanced user-programming and high-performing control in a highly reliable, flexible and powerful device platform.

Object orientation and state-of-the-art toolset allow straightforward engineering throughout the system life-cycle without compromising user requirements. Designed with IEC 61850 and other open standards in mind the Series 500 products are future-proof and can be seamlessly integrated in multivendor distributed systems.

Series 500 is fully prepared to support modern fully digital substation solutions including third-party system engineering tool integration and process bus
architectures with high-speed GOOSE and IEC 61850-9-2 sampled value subscription.

Part of this Series, the TPU 500 relays family fully addresses the needs of transmission and sub-transmission power system protection by offering fast, reliable and fieldproven algorithms on a high performance hardware and software platform. Product options include protection functions for line, transformer, switchgear and other assets, featuring algorithms such as differential, distance, current, voltage and frequency together with control, supervision, recording and monitoring.
