Digital Fault Recorder (DFR): Introduction

  • Digital Fault Recorder (DFR) is a device that is installed in a substation to record the waveform from a fault on a transmission line. It is a multi-functional data acquisition device that is able to record all waveform signals at a sampling rate of 1024 samples per cycle. Thus, it can monitor all power quality load profiles and synchrophasors. DFR provides complete isolation and analysis of any event and gives solutions for protection and optimum operation of the electric system. It is a powerful platform for cost-effective performance solution, acquisition, analysis, and data reporting from power system substations. Features of DFR include modular design, centralized & decentralized architecture, modern synchronization, comprehensive web-interface, and scalable architecture.
  • DFR uses communications to retrieve fault, disturbance, and sequence of event records that are captured by protection relays distributed throughout a substation. It internally stores this critical substation information, which is used in local station troubleshooting. It also archives this data in a remote enterprise network location for permanent storage and analysis. Rise in contracts, agreements, and product developments is fueling the global DFR market.
