UKPN have made extensive use of a hard coded script
automation system, which has had a significant positive impact on its
quality of supply performance. This system automatically responds to a
source circuit breaker tripping by locating the fault using Fault Passage
Indicators (FPI), isolates the fault using pre programmed remote control
switches along the feeder, and finally restores as many customers as
possible by closing either the normal open point or source feeder
The project expects the following objectives to be fulfilled:
- The automatic reconfiguration of the distribution network
following a fault
- Impacts of High Voltage (HV) faults on the distribution network.
