Transformer Protection Relays

Transformer Protection Relays

Managing the flow of electrical current through a large facility is essential to keep it functioning at optimal performance. At the same time, it is essential to protect workers and operators from serious incidents that could pose a great risk to life. A protection relay is the best way to ensure you always maintain complete control over your facility’s power. At CSE Uniserve, we provide industry-leading electrical engineering services, outstanding power control and distribution products and offer expert training to some of the world’s leading companies. For nearly four decades we have delivered exceptional engineering solutions to businesses in Australia, starting out from humble beginnings in Sydney to now having offices across Australia.

Are You Looking For A Transformer Protection Relay?

There is nothing more dangerous in a worksite than an electrical fire that can spread through a facility. Effective power protection is essential to any building or work environment, as the electrical demands of a given site increase so too do the risks involved in generating and distributing that energy. Industries like mining, oil and gas refining, water treatment, transportation and sustainable energy require vast amounts of electrical current. The only way for this sort of work to be conducted safely is through the use of relay that mitigates against dangerous faults.

As the world continues to embrace technological advances in all facets of life and across all industries, the capabilities to reduce problematic power outages that lead to major costs and reactive expenses have become widely accessible throughout the energy market. At the forefront of independent system, integration is CSE Global, the parent company of CSE Uniserve. Based in Australia and serving the needs of our extensive customer base since 1978, CSE Uniserve have a wide range of solutions that encompass everything from transformer protection relay systems to asset monitoring and diagnostics. Power conversion, protection and automation and technical services are the core competencies that form the basis of what we do, and as such we are focused on servicing the following industries:

  • Mining
  • Oil and Gas
  • Water
  • Utilities and associated renewables
  • Heavy industry and manufacturing

For over 35 years we have worked toward cutting-edge, innovative solutions that exceed the expectations of our customers and in this time have assembled a team of world-class engineers and technicians to bolster and enhance our approaches to new processes and thereby offer unparalleled service to the respective markets. At CSE Uniserve, we are firm believers in expanding the opportunities available to clients by looking beyond the traditional, tried and tested products available in hope of exploring the deployment of new and alternative technologies that offer increased and differential value.  Our agenda is always fuelled by finding and following best practices in terms of the solutions and service we provide, and in terms of our own company, we continually strive toward quality assurance in everything that we do.

The Features Of A Transformer Protection Relay

One of the products we offer here at CSE Uniserve is the Solcon TPR-6, which accurately measures temperature increases in order to protect a transformer from possible damage that would result from a build-up in heat in the bearings and, or, windings. What’s more, a built-in self-test protects against operator faults and disconnected sensors. This relay houses advanced microprocessor-based circuitry and two level protections for alarm and trip. The possibility to select between trip and trip fail-safe is another feature and it incorporates disconnected sensor protection. Inputs and outputs are programmable and the relay is easy to install and is simple to operate.

Using transformer protection will lead to repair over catastrophic failure where properly monitored and controlled, which will also increase the lifetime potential for your transformers. The cost efficiencies and long-term savings caused by minimising outages and not having to replace equipment far outweigh any initial investment and have the knock-on effect of benefitting your corporate image in the eyes of your clients and stakeholders. At CSE Uniserve, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive technical support expertise and lifetime service through dedicated in-house and on-site services for all our technologies. We offer the highest quality repair of products and quality maintenance, training, testing and commissioning, site audits and preventative maintenance and a customer support line that operates all day every day. As such, we encourage you to engage us in your current endeavours and to work side-by-side with CSE Uniserve to find creative solutions that will deliver the results you expect and lead to a formidable partnership and industry best performance.

Our Protection Relays

CSE Uniserve have been exclusively distributing GE Multilin and now GE MiCOM and MiDOS relays throughout Australia and New Zealand for nearly 30 years. Transformer protection relays are suitable for different transformer protection applications, including medium voltage and high voltage transformers of any size, dual secondary transformers, auto-transformers, three-winding transformers, transformers with dual-breaker terminals. Additionally, these relays are designed for both new and retrofit installations. New installations typically use wye-connected current transformers and internally compensate the measured currents for the phase shift of the protected transformer. Traditional installations may use delta-connected or wye-connected current transformers that externally compensate the measured currents for the phase shift of the protected transformer. We accommodate both methods as simple configuration settings. Beyond these typical applications, our transformer protection relays can be applied to more advanced applications.

Bespoke Power Distribution Solutions

If you are at the planning stages of a new project or site build, then a transformer relay should be very high on your list of priorities alongside other electrical engineering considerations such as digital substations, generator protection and other types of system protection as well as planned maintenance systems. For all of your future engineering needs, the wise choice is to rely on a company with a track record of delivering outstanding solutions to deadline on the most demanding projects to high profile clients. CSE Uniserve is that company; we can supply the tailored electrical engineering machinery and equipment along with the specialised training that you require to ensure your site operates safely and efficiently to its full potential. Why not discuss your particular needs with us and see how we can exceed your expectations by designing a bespoke plan for your power control system. We are happy to consult with you by phone or in person.

CSE Uniserve is Australia’s leading supplier of electrical equipment & engineering services.
