March 8, 2012 – GE has released the End-to-End Fault Detection, Isolation & Restoration (FDIR/FLISR) system, a distribution automation solution to help utilities improve the reliability of their distribution network. According to the company, the solution is capable of detecting power system outage locations and automatically sectionalizing and reconfiguring distribution circuits to restore power to as many customers as possible, helping to reduce typical customer outage time from hours to under a minute. The solution can also help improve a utility’s SAIDI and SAIFI reliability indices, it adds.
