VAMP40 course – feeder: 5. Current circuits supervision, 2nd harmonic blocking function, free programable current curve

In the fourth article we configured non-directional earth fault protection and disturbance recorder. Full course of VAMP40 you can find here. In this article we are going to configure current circuits supervision, 2nd harmonic blocking function and free programmable current curve. It is important to control currents circuits. Broken currents circuits lead to damage current […]
