Bus Protection

GE provides enhanced reliability through advanced protection for a wide range of bus protection applications. Our highly skilled technology teams understand bus bar principles and protection techniques, and use them to design, manufacture and support bus protection solutions that can be applied to a vast array of applications.

High magnitude fault currents require high speed operation of the bus bar protection to limit damage. However, this high speed clearing must be balanced against the need for security. Tripping incorrectly for an external fault may cause large outages and jeopardize power system stability. Learn more in our bus principles and protection guide.
