Power Distribution Automation shows how energy providers can deliver a reliable, good quality power supply to customers, while reducing operational costs by using a Distribution Automation (DA) system.

Essential reading for anyone working in power engineering and distribution automation, this book provides a detailed description of all the major components of a DA system, including communication infrastructure and analysis tools. Topics covered include:

  • communication systems for distribution automation
  • load flow analysis; short circuit analysis
  • state estimation
  • feeder reconfiguration for loss reduction
  • service restoration and load balancing
  • volt-var control
  • fault location
  • fault type identification
  • economic analysis/cost benefit analysis

The book concludes by showing how DA has been implemented in practice, using a case study from Enexis, one of the major distribution system operators in The Netherlands.
