Current Relay of Ground Protection

AL-4 - current relay of ground protection

The current relay AL-4 is the relay of current with ground protection which is not slowed down, but at the same time it is highly sensitive with one current chain. The device is used with the current transformer of the zero sequence in schemes of protection against short circuit to the earth of the generators, engines and lines with small currents of short circuit to the earth and in other devices of relay protection, antiemergency and industrial automatic equipment.

Average main error of actuating current in any digitized point of a scale doesn't exceed 10% of a setting for the AL-4 relay.

Current variation (calculated as a percentage of the average value of the actuating current) must not exceed 2,5 %.
