G&W Electric Introduces its Model-Based Single Phase FLISR
G&W Electric Co., a global supplier of electric power equipment since 1905, announced the debut of its new Single Phase Fault Location, Isolation and Service Restoration (FLISR) at DistribuTECH International 2020. The first Model-Based Single Phase FLISR available on the market will be on display at booth 2623, where the company will be conducting live demonstrations. As the latest innovation in FLISR technology, G&W Electric’s new, state-of-the-art technology provides a solution to the utility industry’s most common fault, a single-phase line to ground fault. The new Single Phase FLISR serves as an additional option to further improve reliability indices by only isolating the single phase that is affected by a fault. With improved power availability and reliability indices, power outages can be reduced from hours to just seconds.
“For more than two decades, G&W Electric has been providing innovative FLISR solutions to give our customers the most trusted products to improve power availability and reliability,” said John Mueller, Chairman and Owner of G&W Electric. “At G&W Electric, we’re thrilled to introduce our latest cutting-edge technology to help utilities to provide more reliable power to their customers.” By providing greater visibility into outages, the new single phase FLISR allows utilities to automatically reroute power, minimizing the number of customers impacted by outages. With reduced power disturbances, utilities can improve its standard reliability metrics such as the System Average Interruption Frequency Index (SAIFI) and the System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI).
