TECHTALK: Case Study for Building a Business Case for FLISR Based on Outage Prevention and Restoration Benefits


Based on a full-scale simulation in a live 25 kV distribution system, Powertech team has developed a model for estimating the benefits of FLISR. This presentation will provide a brief overview of FLISR, how it works and the automation schemes. The major focus of the presentation is on the benefits estimated from the simulation, and how the benefits can lead to successful business case for rural (radial) distribution systems. The model used will be described to help others pursuing FLISR.
