The Remote Medium Voltage Lines Fault Indication and Status Monitoring System is a system completely designed, developed and implemented by EDZ. The system main goal is to transmit and interpret medium voltage networks abnormalities associated with fault conditions and power lines disconnection status.
In October 2003, EDZ launched the project implementation. The first phase covered the line status monitoring part, the system is to automatically detect power cut-OFFs and turn-ONs incidents, transmit the corresponding data to the central station, which in turn instantaneously updates EDZ dispatchers through a regular GSM-mobile voice call. Next phases extended the functionalities of the system to enhance utility response after short circuit occurrence. More components were installed on the network and new modules were added to the interpreting software to instantaneously notify fault conditions.
