Signal-Based Fast-Tripping Protection Schemes for Electric Distribution System Resilience

Matt Reno Factsheet

Project Overview:

This project improves the resilience of the electric power distribution system by developing faster and more accurate fault-detection protection schemes. Using signal-based algorithms with very high frequency sampling sensors on the grid, the novel protection schemes will locate and isolate disturbances and faults on the grid.
