Gila River Power GE DGP (Digital Generator Protection) Relay Retrofit
Typical of most plants constructed from the 1980s into the 2000s, the generators at Entegra’s Gila River Power Station were fitted with analog solid-state and early processor-based protection relays. With failure rates increasing as these legacy devices near the end of their reliable life-cycle, power generating stations are faced with two options: operating with decades old technology and hardware (with OEM support and replacements becoming nearly non-existent) or seek alternate solutions.
