Busbar Protection IED GRB200

Product Overview

The GRB200 low impedance differential relay for busbar protection is designed to provide very reliable, high-speed and selective protection for various types of busbar system. The GRB200 can be applied for single, double and ring busbars with or without transfer busbar, one-and-a-half CB (busbar) system and four bus-coupler busbars. A phase-segregated current differential scheme is employed, which can correctly distinguish between internal and external faults even in the event of CT saturation. GRB200 has two models, for centralized and de-centralized configurations.
