Hello all

I am interested in real time information and how it can be used in the power industry in general and power distributions networks in particular all help are welcomed.

In distribution networks:
All primary substations supply information to a central control engineer.
Such information could be

1) Load on each feeder
2) Transformer tap values and voltages
3) Protection alarms
4) State of switchgear (tripped/open/closed etc)
5) Frequency

This allows the control engineer to keep a track of the health of the network and peform load shifts or supply restoration remotely.

More and more secondary substations are being fitted with equipment such as fault passage indicators which allow the control engineer to section faults much more quickly; and save time, where previously, a field engineer would have had to have travelled around the network "fault-bashing".

Obviously at higher voltages, real-time information would be use to bring generation on line as required.
