Abstract

The goal of this Major Qualifying Project was to demonstrate ways to make improvements to a distribution feeder using today’s technological advances. A model was first developed to create a virtual laboratory where faults could be simulated. These faults were later analyzed and discussed on how to reduce their impact to the system. The final objective is to encourage electrical utilities to invest in smart grid technology.
