This paper describes the objectives and operating principles of a centralized distribution automation system (DAS) developed for the underground distribution system at Texas A&M University. The DAS detects electric faults based on information from fault indicators and automatically reconfigures the distribution system topology to isolate faulted sections and restore service to the maximum number of loads possible. It is a modular, scalable system that combines fast protection with flexible… CONTINUE READING
