Recent addition of advanced fault location capability has significantly increased the value of these systems, reducing the time required to locate feeder faults at Con Edison by more than one hour.
—Paul Stergiou, Power Quality Manager
One of the most important development areas for power quality (PQ) monitoring is the implementation of intelligent systems that can automatically evaluate disturbances and conditions to make conclusions about the cause of the problem or even predict problems before they occur. Fault location is one of the most important of these intelligent applications. Automatic fault location can reduce the time to repair faults and have a direct impact on overall system reliability. However, implementing an automated fault location function requires a robust power quality monitoring system with functionality that allows integration of new functions and capabilities.
