An ENA co-ordinated project the objective of which is the development of an on-line instrument that can successfully measure / estimate fault level on a distribution network with repeatability and reliability.
The device will connect to the network, and establish the network source impedance from small-scale disturbances / perturbations resulting from transformer tap changer operation, etc. This impedance can accurately be correlated to a true network fault level for that location, providing near real-time information to network control and planning engineers alike.
