Multiple winding transformer differential protection
SIPROTEC 5 base module with large display
The transformer protection device SIPROTEC 7UT87 is an universal protection, control and automation device on the basis of the SIPROTEC 5 system. It is especially designed for protection of multiple winding transformers (up to 5 sides). Further it is to be used there, where a numerous of measuring points (up to 7 3-pole current measuring points) are required. Another application is simultaneously protection of two parallel transformers (additional fast backup protection).The SIPROTEC 7UT87 is the main protection for the transformer and includes a numerous other protection and monitoring functions. In addition the protection functions can also be used as backup protection for following protected objects (for example cable, line). It also supports modular availability of the hardware.
The device supports all SIPROTEC 5 system characteristics. It enables futureoriented system solutions with high investment security and low operating costs.
