Intelligent Loop Automation Solution to Improve Power Reliability

Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, announced the launch of its Intelligent Loop Automation solution. This solution is composed of a certified set of architectures and configurations to manage fault location, isolation and service restoration (FLISR) automatically on distribution feeders in response to network conditions, including faults, outages and load imbalances. Tested by Schneider Electric’s engineers, Intelligent Loop Automation reduces outage restoration time and costs, improves customer satisfaction and makes field crews more efficient. Supported by the expertise of Schneider Electric’s U.S. Energy Applications Center (EAC), utilities can deploy switchable devices, control units and remote terminal units (RTUs) with a Loop Automation configuration that is specifically tailored to their unique supply feeders. Once activated, the loop automation scheme minimizes the customer impact of outages on the local feeder network. When a fault occurs, the system will automatically open switches on either side of the faulted segment to isolate the fault and restore service to unaffected segments in less than one minute. The solution segregates the fault to a minimal network area, helping field crews to find the exact location of the fault quickly and minimize restoration time. Schneider Electric’s Intelligent Loop Automation solution includes communication-ready control units and switchgear that is driven by a set of certified and tested rules. This orchestration enables the coordinated switching required to provide proper timing of actions to ensure safe and rapid operation. Utilization of communication systems gives utilities the ability to remotely collect information from various points on the grid in shorter time intervals, and update situational awareness and control systems, thus improving the reliability of distribution network operations.
