Protection relays suited for renewable energy sources

The current tendency of the electric power system is the adaptation of renewable energy sources. Mainly these are solar panels and wind farms. The entrance of renewable energy produces essential changes in the operating mode of the power system and, therefore, affects the protection relay and automation devices’ functioning. The use of renewable energy can decrease short-circuit currents and the insensitivity of the protection to this fault.

At Fanox, we have been envisioning this evolutionary process for renewable energies for years. Since then, we have specialized in developing a range of protection relays perfectly adapted to this installation type.

We understand that the future lies in moving towards a clean energy model. The electrical sector has the most capacity to integrate renewable generation sources. And at Fanox, we have adapted successfully, always basing our developments on innovation, research, and flexibility, our hallmark.
