Overhead HV fault location solution
Fast, accurate location of faults, downed lines and other issues on the high voltage overhead distribution network
Efficient supply restoration after HV overhead distribution network faults is of critical importance, particularly during storm conditions. Damage to rural sections of network can present safety risks for the public and network repair teams. Faults can be difficult to locate, increasing the time to restore supplies and leaving damaged lines in unsafe conditions.
Currently in development, LineSIGHT is an advanced new monitoring and fault management system and is capable of accurately locating outage issues such as downed lines and low hanging conductors.
LineSIGHT can also detect component deterioration and intermittent problems developing on the network, helping with health assessment and allowing prioritisation of DNOs’ investment in replacement and reinforcement schemes.
By highlighting priority areas for maintenance, upgrades and replacement, LineSIGHT realizes greater benefit from operational budgets.
Rapidly locate the causes of power outage with an accuracy of 500m, reducing the need for engineers to ‘walk the line’ to find remote faults.
Helps Network Operators identify developing network issues before they lead to supply outages, disruption to customers and costly penalties.
LineSIGHT enables operators to allocate resources for faster, more effective interventions when an incident occurs.
