Restricted earth fault is a type of differential protection – normally connected across a transformer secondary to protect the windings. You can see a note on this here:

Standby earth fault is general earth fault protection (usually measuring everything from the transformer secondary downstream). Normally this is implemented with a CT in the transformer neutral
