TECHTALK: Deploying FLISR at the Coop Level

Located in Bastrop Texas and serving 96,000 meters, Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative recently implemented FLISR on their distribution network, moving them closer to the reality of a self-healing grid. Bluebonnet will discuss their rationale for implementing FLISR, lessons learned from planning, network setup, deployment, and making decisions to help them stay within their budget. By implementing FLISR on selected areas of their network, Bluebonnet expects a reduction in the average outage time, improvement in their reliability indices, and increased customer satisfaction.
