Apply the WSO wireless sensors for overhead lines to improve distribution system reliability by remotely monitoring circuits for faults and outages. Using centrally reported data, dispatch repair personnel directly to the faulted line section, reducing outage durations by up to 50%. Users can also periodically log circuit load data for system analysis and remotely monitor the system.
Remote Fault Monitoring—Receive wireless indication of fault status from the WSO-11 Wireless Sensor for Overhead Lines to pinpoint the fault location before dispatching troubleshooting crews. The WSO-11 uses the AutoRANGER trip logic for simple integration with existing protection schemes. After detecting a fault, the WSO-11 alerts personnel of the affected area with an exception fault report.
Outage Indication—Identify de-energized sections of the circuit with exception outage reports. After the outage, the WSO-11 automatically sends a restoration report indicating when the line section is re-energized.
Feeder Reconfiguration—Install near remote-controlled, motor-operated switches to provide information for feeder reconfiguration.
Momentary Event Detection—Detect momentary faults, momentary outages, disturbance events, and load pickup events to improve system reliability.
Load Monitor—Approximate circuit loading with average or peak load data refreshed every 24 hours.
Note: Consult factory for available radio solution.
