To catch a perfect wave, a surfer not only needs a lot of experience, but also exact timing in the water. The situation is similar with locating faults on overhead power lines – traveling waves propagate almost at speed of light, which is why exact timing in the nanosecond range is crucial. To ensure correct fault location and if necessary, tripping of the traveling wave relays, testing the protection elements with the same accuracy is inevitable.
With the TWX1 you can put the latest traveling wave relays and fault locators through their paces with precisely generated traveling waves.
