Power Distribution Automation
Power Distribution Automation shows how energy providers can deliver a reliable, good quality power supply to customers, while reducing operational costs by using a Distribution Automation (DA) system.
Essential reading for anyone working in power engineering and distribution automation, this book provides a detailed description of all the major components of a DA system, including communication infrastructure and analysis tools. Topics covered include:
- communication systems for distribution automation
- load flow analysis; short circuit analysis
- state estimation
- feeder reconfiguration for loss reduction
- service restoration and load balancing
- volt-var control
- fault location
- fault type identification
- economic analysis/cost benefit analysis
The book concludes by showing how DA has been implemented in practice, using a case study from Enexis, one of the major distribution system operators in The Netherlands.
