RTU530 product line

Enabling a self-healing grid

RTU530 delivers a new set of features and solutions for the secondary distribution automation segment in addition to many other applications. The device’s highly customizable design enables the adaptation of input and output modules based on application requirements while a robust design and optional conformal coating guarantee a long cycle life. Low power consumption enables a greener installation while optimizing the capacity of UPS batteries.

The new platform builds upon the functionality of the RTU500 series and adds more processing capacity and a faster communication bus. This enables to run out-of-the-box applications such as fault detection, automatic transfer system (ATS), load shedding or fault detection isolation and restoration (FDIR) within your network and integrates seamlessly with fleet management. All come embedded with enhanced cybersecurity features such as secure communication, encryption, and security logging which are part of the DNA of the RTU500 series.

Self-healing distribution grid

The RTU530 main controller with an integrated predefined algorithm, the modularity of RTU500 components, and the DIN rail communication portfolio of  EDS500 allow simple integration of typical applications into the medium and low voltage grid as follows (image).

Automatic transfer system (ATS)

ATS provides a continuous power supply made possible by a detection function and an automatic switch-over function from the main source to an alternative energy source. The automatic switchover is triggered by the failure of the active main source.

Transformer monitor and control

This consists of simple monitoring of the current flow and fault detection. The application detects long-term or periodical overload stresses and supports in the calculation of the asset’s maintenance plan. Oil temperature and level monitoring allows detailed analyses of the transformer and protects the environment in case of a transformer-leakage. Measuring voltage and current in the feeders allows an automatic tap changer control to maintain voltage within a defined range in the distribution network.

Generator patrol and control

The application fulfills the requirements of a distribution code connecting small scale or mobile power stations to a distribution system. A communication link, automatic speed, power factor, and voltage control are all part of this RTU based application.

Generators are rotating machines that are subject to vibration and heat while running. Monitoring of temperature and unbalance caused by a rotor imbalance and unbalance or overload from the grid helps in evaluating the generator’s lifetime.

Fault detection isolation and restoration

Automatic logic functionality with measurement and fault detectors and motorized switches allows identifying a faulty cable within a short period of time, to isolate the fault, and to restore the supply. This application starts with ATS as a simple reconfiguration functionality and goes up to a high-level solution with peer to peer communication.
