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=SINTEF+S12145

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...
