MCA4 Directional Feeder Protection
The MCA4 is a precise and reliable protection, control and monitoring relay for feeder, grid and generator applications. It incorporates all the ANSI and IEC concepts to comply with ever changing grid interconnection requirements.
Flexibility in hardware, software, application, user interface and communications makes the MCA4 adaptable to requirements today and in the future.
The protection functions of the MCA4 have been adapted to comply with the requirements of the VDE-AR-N-4110/4120:2018.
The parameterizing and analyzing software Smart view is usable for each HighPROTEC device and free of charge.

Interconnection of renewable energies (DER – distributed energy resources) to the public grid.
Over- / Undervoltage protection.
Protection of High, Medium and Low Voltage feeders against thermal damages by overload or short circuit currents.
Protection of High, Medium and Low Voltage feeders against overvoltage (insulation damage) and undervoltage.
Frequency based protection option, examples:
Load shedding by ROCOF
Auto reclosure option to fix short duration faults (like bird flying through overhead lines, ice on lines, lightning’s hitting overhead lines, wind caused arcing by on overhead lines.
