Reduced Sags And Swells

Locating high impedance faults more quickly and precisely and adding electricity storage will reduce the frequency and severity of the voltage fluctuations that they can cause. Installing advanced reclosers that only allow a limited amount of current to flow through them upon reclosing can also reduce voltage fluctuations. Moreover, fewer customers on the same or adjacent distribution feeders would experience the voltage fluctuation caused by the fault. The benefit to consumers is based on the value of service.[1]
