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.
An ENA coordinated 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.
