Relay Testing Can Be Frustrating

a relay test frustrated becuase they DON'T have our Relay Testing Book

If you’ve spent any amount of time out in the field testing relays, you already know a few things:

  • Every manufacturer has their own standards, symbols, and terminology. They use different diagrams, different labeling…  All that means is A LOT OF TIME spent studying manuals, and A LOT OF TIME troubleshooting.
  • Every job is different. Virtually every testing job will, in some way, ask you to do something you have no idea how to do. This is stressful, frustrating, and time consuming. 
  • Modern relays have a staggering amount of functionality. This means they can do a lot more… but it also means there is a lot more to test as you try to sort through the mess of screens, menus, and options to find what you’re looking for.

You're Not Alone!

Most Relay Testers Struggle to Get the Job Done...

Without proper training, you have probably created a few workarounds over time to help you get by, or relied on automated test software. But that approach only gets you so far, because:

  • Protective relays are more powerful and more complex than they used to be. Relay testing technicians require a broader knowledge base to do their jobs efficiently and effectively.
  • Most electrical books are written by engineers who focus on electrical THEORY, and completely neglect the part you need: PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS.
  • You think you’ve hacked the system and figured out a solution, but it only works on THAT relay with its specific settings. Your new hack often doesn’t work on the next relay.

  • The fundamentals of end-to-end testing
  • Why end-to-end testing is used
  • How end-to-end testing works in real life
  • When and where to perform an end-to-end test
  • Detailed end-to-end testing procedures
  • Descriptions of the most common protection schemes, such as:
  • Direct Under-Reaching Transfer Trip (DUTT)
  • Permissive Over-Reaching Transfer Trip (POTT)
  • Directional Comparison Unblocking (DCUB)
  • check-circle
    Permissive Under-Reaching Transfer Trip (PUTT)
  • check-circle
    Directional Comparison Blocking (DCB)
  • check-circle
    Line Differential (Pilot Wire, Charge Comparison, Traditional Differential, and the Alpha Plane)

You can get the softcover version to comfortably read and absorb the information at your own pace, and then use the PDF version to get the information in the field when you need it most!

End to End Testing relay testing book

"I have been in electrical testing for the past 15 years and have worked for NETA shops and utilities. The booklet is excellent for a beginner as well as a seasoned test technician. I purchased this for a look at another’s perspective on end-to-end relay testing. Included are test plans, connections, procedures and testing philosophies. The user will find an overview of nearly all of the popular protection strategies as well as a very helpful overview chart.

I have been so impressed with the booklet that I will purchase the expansive relay manual.

Bravo Mr. Werstiuk, (author), you have accomplished in a few pages the equivalent of a semester of test school."
