Protection

Protection

When was the last time you reviewed your relay settings? Have you considered upgrading your old electromechanical relays to microprocessor-based multi-function relays? Is your generator protection coordinated with the excitation control and generator capability? Ready’s engineered electrical protection services prioritize safe and efficient transmission of electric power with schemes that minimize downtime while keeping your equipment intact.

Reliable distribution of power is one essential piece of infrastructure in society today. Well-engineered protection minimizes system downtime, equipment damage and potential personnel hazards in abnormal fault scenarios.

From motors to municipal coupling, Ready has experience in all facets of industrial and residential protection. Ready is specialized in the design, development, testing, and commissioning of protection schemes that quickly isolate faulted electrical equipment. With extensive experience in specifying Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) and GE Multilin relays, Ready is capable of designing protection systems that meet our clients’ preferences and requirements.

Further, Ready personnel have worked extensively with the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) standards. Applicable to Generator Owners and Generator Operators of dispersed generation, these NERC standards assign responsibility for reliability requirements to ensure dependability of the Bulk Power System in North America.

Examples of project topics which Ready Engineering protection experts have worked on recently include:
