RuggedCom Inc. and Siemens Energy Inc. have announced the availability of a wireless integrated distribution feeder automation (DFA) solution using RuggedCom’s RuggedMAX broadband wireless solutions and Siemens Siprotec Compact line/feeder protection. The combined smart grid DFA solution allows for “optimized fault detection, isolation and restoration to minimize the extent of power outages by quickly isolating affected areas”. The joint solution was demonstrated at the IEEE PES Transmission and Distribution conference in New Orleans, La., last month.
