Protection has assumed a large importance in the power industry in the recent years. This protection involves the use of relays on a large scale. Relays are basically used to give commands to circuit breakers, contactors, etc by sensing different parameters like current, voltage, etc. Just as electrical circuits may range from a few watts to 100 megawatts, the size and rating of the relays vary considerably. Study of relays is now being included in the engineering curriculum. M/S SCR Elektroniks have developed demonstration units for different types of relays such as under protection/over protection relay, temperature protection relay, motor protection relays, AC/DC relays and contactors keeping the engineering curriculum in view.
The following set of instructions will help you to operate the demonstration unit for AC Contactors and AC DC Relays with ease.
