    DETECTING FAULTS/RESTORATIONS
    Knowing when and where the power goes out is critical to a successfull power system management program. And, having accurate information as to the nature of the fault (ie., line-line, line-ground, etc.) can be extremely helpful in getting to the root cause and in quicker restoration times.
    Fault Location
      Key features include:
    •   Advanced substation data recording
    •   Capturing event and fault data in high resolution
    •   Ability to identify the location of faults
    •   Compatible with full suite of Fischer Block sensor devices
    • DATASHEET
      FAULT LOCATION
      Electric power distribution systems face various problems caused by lightning, storms, insulation breakdown, and others. These many times lead to power interruptions and unacceptable power continuity indices. Fault Location is used to reduce the outage time and minimize the outage impact to end users of electricity. Fault location techniques have recently been challenged by the growing amount of distributed energy sources thorughout the network. Impedance-based techniques for fault locating can overcome the effects of such distributed energy sources.
      Fault Analysis
        Key features include:
      •   Advanced substation data recording
      •   Capturing event and fault data in high resolution
      •   Analyzing events to determine root cause

        EVENT/WAVEFORM CAPTURE
        Weak insulators, excessive arcing during capacitor bank or breaker switching, noisy load-tap changers, failing equipment and and loose connections, can all cause problems ultimately lead to system faults and equipment breakdown. Pre-fault detection is key to preventing faults and disturbances in an electrical power system. High-resolution waveform capture and analysis provides users with the insight and actionable intelligence needed to keep their systems up and running smoothly.

        Fischer Block device sensors capture high-resolution oscillography waveforms (associated with faults and other network events) at data rates up to 64 samples per cycle (typical). Patent-pending algorithms are used to make a statistical correlation of high-resolution data with historical failure data inforamtion in order to provide system operators with critical time-to-failure and end-of-life estimates on key assets. Wave data can be stored indefinitely for further forensic investigation of outages, disturbances, events, and equipment failures to provide key information in support of a sound condition based maintenance program.

          PRC002 RECORD CAPTURE
          NERC Disturbance Monitoring Standard (PRC-002-2) governs the requirements for Disturbance Monitoring Equipment (DME) within BES substations. The The Fischer Block series of intelligent devices are fully compliant with these DME requirements (FR, SOE, DDR), recording both analog and digital channels simultaneously. Record archiving is performed by default and SOE records can be stored for up to several years per record.
