Every second that a power outage persists, utilities lose revenue as well as customer trust. To minimize grid problems, operators must be able to reliably and automatically control field devices. Consequently, distribution automation (DA) systems have become essential for quickly locating and isolating grid faults, and also for making fast, efficient field repairs.
In this e-Book, you will learn the:
- Pros and cons of centralized and mesh network communications;
- Various communication issues that can occur when the grid is under stress; and
- Business and operational benefits of reliable DA.
