Adaptive Protection

The use of adjustable protective relay settings (e.g., current, voltage, feeders, and equipment) that can change in real time based on signals from local sensors or a central control system. This is particularly useful for feeder transfers and two-way power flow issues associated with high Distributed Energy Resource (DER) penetration.[1]
