Amprion in Germany, which operates a transmission grid, aimed to reduce protection setting tolerances to a minimum based on measurements taken with OMICRON’s CPC 100 + CP CU1 system.
EVI measures actual line impedances with OMICRON’s CPC 100 system utilising the CP CU1 coupling unit, thereby gaining the precise adjustment parameters.
The combination of portable, reliable and precise hardware and powerful software guarantees that the best possible solution is available for the most challenging testing tasks.
Eskom (South Africa) needed to test the protective relay scheme of a 400–765kV power transformer, whose current transformers are located some 500m apart. The CPC 100 from OMICRON fulfilled these requirements.
Omicron is offering version 3.10 of its Primary Test Manager (PTM) software, which supports users during the diagnostic testing of power transformers, circuit breakers, current transformers and associated equipment such as bushings and on-load tap changers.
