The distance relay program provides the protection engineer the tools to examine the performance of distance relay (21) settings, scheme logics, analog and digital interfaces to instrument transformers, circuit breakers, isolator switches and other protective devices.

The innovative design of the impedance relay protection module and library allows the user to access the relay settings and simulate the actual analog / digital interfaces, setting groups, relay logic and more.
