Automation on 11kV and 6.6kV networks

Automatic Restoration System (ARS) is a system, targeted at the 11kV & 6.6kV networks, that uses software algorithms, Remsdaq and SCADA data communication systems to automatically reconfigure the electrical distribution network to restore supplies to customers within the first five minutes of a power supply interruption.

Automation on the 33kV network

Transmission Restoration System (TRS) is an automated solution leading to the restoration of customer supplies at 33kV voltage levels. It can identify the presence of an unplanned loss of supply and when appropriate, uses computational algorithms embedded into the Control Room Management System (CRMS) to reconfigure the available network to restore customer supplies. TRS aims to ensure that where possible customer supplies are restored via automatic switching actions within a three minute window.
