This project aims to develop an integrated solution to locate and characterise faults, based on waveform analysis and information provided by other sensors installed on the LV overhead network.
The objectives are:

  • To help identify the section containing the fault

  • To detect weak points on the network by long-term waveform analysis, and so optimise maintenance and/or investments

  • Predict and accurately locate a potential fault on the system before it occurs

  • Introduce innovative monitoring and testing equipment that can pinpoint a fault.
