If you’ve read anything about relay testing in the last five years, you’ve probably read the terms “system testing” or “dynamic testing”. This style of testing tries to answer the question “Will this relay work properly when I put it into service?”; instead of the typical relay test plan that answers “What do I need to do to get checkmarks on my electro-mechanical based relay test sheet?”
Dynamic, or system, tests draw the characteristic curve of the protection and apply faults along the characteristic to prove that the relay has been programmed correctly. We’ll show you how to perform this style of testing in the following videos.

We can’t use their products without express permission from them, even if we rented or purchased them. We’ve been trying to get that permission for years but no-one seems to know who we should talk to, or they don’t return our messages. At this point, the only hope is for you to contact your local Doble rep and ask them to contact us to participate.
We contacted Megger to see if they wanted to participate and they said that they need approval from the higher-ups before they could send a test-set. Please contact your Megger rep and ask them to contact Greg Valdez (Megger’s Marketing Communications Manager) to see if we can add them to this series.
Don’t see your test-set in this series? Leave a comment below and we’ll see if we can get a demonstration unit and add a video for that test-set.
