  • PCS-996R Disturbance Fault Recorder

  • The PCS-996R disturbance & fault recorder (DFR) is a multifunctional data acquisition system designed to address the data recording requirements of substations. It captures the curves of monitored quantities and aligns the values of different supervised objects to build disturbance records. The PCS-996R helps users simplify disturbance analysis by combining the discrete records in different protective relays.

    The disturbance & fault recording system architecture can be centralized or distributed based upon customers’ requests. DFRs can also be applied to a substation independently with a local computer and HMI software. The protocol for the communication network can be IEC 61850, FTP and IEC 60870- 5-103 based on LAN. GOOSE function is integrated to receive information from the process bus.

  • The robust hardware platform adopted for DFR is the same as NR Electric’s protection and control system, which has been well proven in field.
  • This device adopts a fully-closed chassis with a well designed structure, providing separate spaces for low and high voltage systems. The traditionally integrated circuit board mode is abandoned. Furthermore, anti-interference measures are integrated into the software, thus enhancing anti-interference capabilities.
  • This device makes use of an advanced hardware platform, which includes 16 bits parallel A/D converter, 320*240 graphic dot matrix LCD, and real-time multi-task operating system. The advanced hardware platform can achieve the high-capacity, high-precision, high-speed, and real-time data processing. The high-precision parallel A/D converter can sample all the AC signals simultaneously in order to ensure the accuracy of these measurements.
