Abstract

The report describes the trial of a MINOS computer-based Switchgear Monitoring and Control system and gives a detailed account of the development of an intelligent microprocessor-based unit for use inside switchgear. The system provides the distribution network status, engineering information, warning and alarm messages and remote operation, all of which allow confirmative and/or corrective actions to be taken to minimise danger and reduce production delays. The system also stores data so that past events and discrepancies can be analysed, thereby increasing management understanding of distribution networks.
