Time Synchronization of protection relays with IEEE 1588


A lot of IEDs (Intelligent Electronic Devices) installed around the world are not supporting modern time synchronization with IEEE 1588. TICRO 100 is used to integrate such devices into IEEE1588/PTPv2 time synchronization infrastructures.

This Application Note shows how to integrate non PTP compliant IEDs into IEEE 1588/PTPv2 time synchronization infrastructures. In detail it shows, how to synchronize Protection Relays with optical interface. The explained procedure can be easily used with protection relays from different vendors supporting optical time synchronization.

The following topics are covered:

  • Setting up the TICRO 100 and the protection relay
  • Selection of the correct PTP network settings
  • Verification if the relay has been successfully synchronized
