Automated Feeder Reconfiguration module fills in the gap between the calculated optimal switching status and real life, specially in presence of DER and MV feeder. It determines the optimal off-point location for a feeder under consideration of the load situation for the current switching and loading conditions.
- Emergency unloading a feeder: an overload has to be managed In case a feeder is overloaded, to reconfigure the feeder in a way that, if possible, no overloads occur
- Load Balancing: is a function used for substations fed by parallel Transformers or Power lines
- Optimal Configuration: minimizing losses, to provide additional transfer capacity and reduce cost at the same time.
The feature works on radial network configurations (distribution networks) and the loads come from the load modeling module.
