Customers today have a high dependence on reliable energy for their every day productivity and convenience. Service feeders can experience faults due to natural effects, man-made situations, or from equipment failures, causing customers to experience service interruptions. Knowing where these faults are, limiting the total number of customers that are impacted by these faults, and quickly restoring power to customers are issues that utilities continually face.
SolutionsThe FLISR process includes the following steps/applications:
Value PropositionTo maintain reliable service, Schneider Electric’s FLISR application provides the optimal plan of control actions for detecting, locating, and isolating faults and restoring power on a distribution feeder.
DifferentiationAutomatic (Closed Loop) Mode – FLISR can be run in a fully automated mode. Fault Location is executed without operator interaction when a permanent fault on a feeder is detected. Fault Location execution is followed by automatic execution of Element Isolation and Service Restoration, in sequence.
