As reported by "Uralinformbjuro" the press service of MES Urals Energy installed terminals wave detect short-circuit overhead transmission lines at substations of 500 kV "Emelino" and 220 kilovolt "Krasnoufimsk." The new equipment will more quickly identify damaged power lines "Emelino — Longitudinal" and "Longitudinal — Krasnoufimsk." Consequently, reduced recovery time and overhead lines.
"A wave method is innovative. This equipment is not only a point short circuit, but also automatically transmits distance information to its operational staff. This greatly improves the responsiveness to the outage," — said the head of service of relay protection and automation MES Urals Sergey Sorokin.
Wave terminals until put into trial operation. Power engineers will analyze in detail their work in substations.
It should be noted that the SS "Emelino" — the first "intelligent" substation MES Urals. It is a major center of Ekaterinburg power-Pervouralskiy energy district of Sverdlovsk region. PS "Krasnoufimsk" supplies electricity to the south-west of the Middle Urals. In addition, it is an important part of energy transit 220 kilovolts between the Perm Region and the Sverdlovsk region.
