Siemens introduces sensor bushing, protection and indication device
Siemens has introduced a solution for fast fault location and more transparency in the distribution grid. It is suitable for grounded, isolated, and compensated networks.
The system is called SICAM FCM plus (Feeder Condition Monitor). It is a multi-functional, short-circuit and earth-fault indicator which uses detection algorithms to indicate the direction of the cable fault, according to a Siemens press release.
Applicable for medium voltage distribution systems up to 36kV, the SICAM FCM plus with SIBushing delivers unrivaled transparency and high-precision measurement of distribution systems, resulting also in the consumption of significantly less power, compared to conventional instrument transformer technologies.
