Protective Relay Requirements

Protective relays serve as a power system’s first line of defense as they assess and mitigate potential risks to the grid. Due to the critical role these devices play, there are various regulations and standards regarding the maintenance and testing of relays. 

Protective relay technician training equips your team with the appropriate skills and knowledge to meet compliance regulations, such as NERC PRC-005-2. Under this NERC standard for protection system maintenance, unmonitored protective relays must undergo maintenance every six years.
