RHP-SCD Voltage Limiting Device

RHP-SCD limits impermissible touch voltage developed in railway lines to very low safe levels by efficiently short-circuiting the negative rail and the earth. The programmable automatic opening of the RHP-SCD limits the effects of stray currents. In fault cases such as accidental short-circuits with the contact lines, the RHP-SCD generates a durable conductive path between the overloaded area and the substation and is able to carry the traction fault current until the fault is cleared by the traction high speed circuit breaker.
