Challenges in mixed circuit protection
Targeted and dependable faulted section identification is costly and complex when underground cables and overhead lines are mixed to create hybrid circuits. This is due to the requirement for civil works, power supplies, GPS clocks and telecommunications access needed by conventional and optical instrumentation at cable transition points for unit protection.
With one fibre, Synaptec can create multiple protected sections in series or in parallel up to 60 km / 37 miles from the substation.
Synaptec’s unique passive sensor technology allows synchronous and dependably accurate instrumentation of multiple locations over unmatched distances. This is ideal for faulted section identification in hybrid circuits, where cable transitions are often too remote or inaccessible for traditional or optical instrumentation to reach.
Synaptec’s Refase™ system installs easily to deliver reliable and secure faulted section identification in multiple cable sections, either in series or in parallel, to ensure safe Auto-Reclose (AR) functionality for overhead transient faults, while blocking AR for underground faults.

Photonic Temperature Transducer (PTT)
Synaptec’s temperature sensors are seamlessly compatible with its electrical current and voltage sensors and the central Interrogator, easily adding valuable insights into the performance and condition of primary equipment and plant.
The Interrogator is the core component in all Synaptec installations, responsible for performing centralised, light-speed interrogation of every sensor in the array. It fully supports any mix of Synaptec’s electrical and mechanical sensors and performs real-time...
Secondary Connected Module (SCM)
Synaptec’s SCM enables the incorporation of conventional CT or VT secondaries into a passive photonic sensing system to reduce cost and equipment footprint while enhancing visibility and control of complex MV-HV power systems.
