1. APPLICATION
The Time-Overcurrent Protection device MiCOM P122C is constructed with a
compact case and intended for selective short-circuit protection in high voltage and
medium voltage systems, for overload protection of transformers, cable and line
sections, and as backup protection of differential or distance protection equipment.
Systems in which the MiCOM P122C relays are installed may be operated as
impedance-grounded, resonant-grounded or isolated-neutral systems.

2. SCOPE
2.1 Protection and monitoring functions
The MiCOM P122C relay provides these protection and monitoring functions:
• Four-pole current measurement (A, B, C, N)
• Overcurrent protection for phases and earth, three stages each, with definite-time
and inverse-time characteristics for the first and second stages
• Unbalance protection, two stages, with definite-time and inverse-time
characteristics for the first stage
• Thermal overload protection
• Undercurrent/loss of load protection
• Circuit breaker failure protection
• Switching on to fault protection
• Blocking logic for reverse interlocking
• Logic selectivity
• Cold load pickup
• Circuit breaker supervision
• CT circuit supervision/broken conductor
2.2 Global functions
Further to the characteristics already listed and the extensive internal monitoring
system, the MiCOM P122C provides these global functions:
• Changing the setting group
• Measurement data acquisition
• Event counters
• Event recording (signal record with real time stamp)
• Fault recording
• Starting recording
• Disturbance recording (signal record with real time stamp and the measured
value of the three phase currents, the residual current or the frequency that
provoked a fault)

2.3 Construction
The MiCOM P122C relay is constructed with a universal case which may be either
wall surface mounted or flush mounted into a control panel as it is equipped with
removable screw clamp connectors and invertible mounting brackets.
2.4 Inputs and outputs
The MiCOM P122C relay is equipped with the following inputs and outputs:
• 4 current measuring inputs
• 2 or 7 (optional) binary signal inputs (features opto coupler input) with freely
configurable function assignment
• 8 output relays; 6 allow freely configurable function assignment
2.5 Interfaces
Operation and display:
• Integrated local control panel with LC-Display (2x16 alphanumeric characters)
• 8 LED indicators; 4 allow freely configurable function assignment
• 4 function keys; 2 freely assignable to the Trip order or to an output relay
• PC interface
• Communication interface to connect to a substation control system (optional)
Information is exchanged through the integrated local control panel, the PC interface,
or the optional communication interface.
The optional communication interface is designed to conform to international
standard IEC 60870-5-103, or it is programmed to run MODBUS.
