Regulation of quality of supply - an innovation driving force? Novel equipment for reducing customers' interruption costs by bypassing switches during maintenance

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1271568

The paper deals with localization of phase-to-phase shortcircuits on a medium voltage (MV) feeder with distributed generation (DG). Fundamental frequency currents and voltages are utilized for estimating the distance to the fault location. Loads and DG connected to the feeder cause errors in the est...

Trends in Quality of Supply in A Liberalized Electricity Market

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1063627

It is a question of concern if - and how - the vulnerability of the electric power grid and probability of interruptions is increasing as assets are ageing and components are being utilized closer to their limits. These aspects may have severe long-term consequences which it is of vital importance t...
