Distribution Automation—From Simple Schemes to Advanced Centralized Solutions

Date held: April 17, 2019
Duration: 60 min

Effective distribution automation improves the reliability of power distribution systems. But no two distribution feeders are exactly the same. Distribution engineers may need a range of automated coordination solutions, from simple to sophisticated, to optimally cover all the areas of their distribution system.

This webinar will address several automated coordination schemes that are commonly used today. You’ll learn about:

  • Load transfer schemes.
  • Loop sectionalizing schemes.
  • Centralized automatic restoration solutions.
