      Challenges


      As power grids become more complex with new practices and smart technologies, effective and efficient automation provides real value. It's important to support growth in demand and variation in energy flow due to renewable energy, as well as minimize the duration and frequency of outages and the number of affected users.
      • Solutions

        Our feeder automation control and monitoring solutions range from Fault Passage Indicators to Smart Feeder RTUs, allowing users to have an impact on outages, from basic fault location to self-healing smart grid schemes. SAIDI and SAIFI are at the heart of every solution in order to provide maximum energy availability.

      • Benefits

        With the correct distribution feeder automation solution, huge savings can be achieved:

        • Maximum reduction of SAIDI with fault location and restoration up to 20 times faster.
        • Scalable and flexible integration, based on your investment and targets.
        • Reduction in operating and capital costs by up to 30%.
