ED - Network improvements and system operability
The project aims to further reduce search times by identifying that permanent faults as being down a particular spur, or locating them to a particular location between sectionalisation points on the main line. Secondly, it aims to demonstrate that developing or “incipient” faults can be reliably detected.
The project will be deemed to have been successful when:
- at least one developing or “incipient” fault has been detected;
- the combination of Fault Passage Indicators, Tollgrade Lighthouse Power Sensors and existing equipment is successfully discriminating the correct spur which has faulted, or identifying that the fault is on the main line; and in the latter case, is providing a location estimate.
