The objectives of the project are:

To have fully tested and undertaken a FAT at Synaptec's laboratory.
To have completed a SAT at Braco R&D substation and approved Refase for use in live trials.
To install Refase on a live 132kV circuit and benchmark the performance against existing protection methods.
To have gained an understanding of the system’s suitability for business as usual adoption including a comprehensive business case and benefits realisation plan
