A relay is an electrical switch that opens and closes electrical contacts under control of another electrical circuit. A relay provides isolation of control signals from switched signals. Relays are known in the widest possible number of configurations and are used in various commercial and industrial applications. Relays are used to control a high voltage circuit with a low voltage signal, to control a high current circuit with a low current signal, to perform time delay functions, to perform logic functions, and to provide transient surge protection. Electromagnetic relays are commonly used as switching components for controlling current flow in load circuits in response to control signals. Time delay relays are used to provide a mechanism for turning a device on or off after a predetermined amount of time. Protective relays come in a variety of types. Distance relays are very popular devices for transmission line protection. A current (or voltage) relay is used to protect a power system, or a power transmission line based on the principle of current differential.
