REB500 - Distributed busbar protection

The IEC 61850 enabled REB500 IED is designed to support different protection philosophies. You can create a distributed protection solution by assigning bay units into dedicated bay cubicles. In this distributed solution, the bay protection is assigned to separate bay units. Alternatively, you can integrate all necessary functionality into one or several centralized cubicles. 

Reliable
REB500 is using proven concepts and algorithms continuously used and improved for over 15 years. The unique signal prolongation principle enables continuous measurement and ensures correct operation of the busbar protection, even when the current transformers are heavily saturated during external faults. This principle ensures correct operation of the busbar protection instead of blocking the protection function and leaving the busbar unprotected.

Secure
REB500 detects all bus and feeder faults for any type of system earthing, whether it is an isolated system or a solidly, low impedance or compensated earthed system. It operates selectively for all faults in the protected zone and maintains complete stability for faults outside the protected zone. 

The integrated overall check zone feature is completely independent of the isolator position indications. This feature enables REB500 to remain stable in case the busbar replica is not valid.
