Demand Response 34 l Grid Planning 40 l Mobile Dispatch 462009 S&C Electric Company766-A0901Conventional reclosers stress the circuit with fault current every time they reclose into a fault. The results: Avoidable damage to the windings of upstream transformers, conductor splices, terminators, and connectors . . . shortening their lives. Plus voltage sags on adjacent, unfaulted feeders.But S&Cs IntelliRupter wont damage your system. Its PulseClosing Technology performs a fast close-open operation at just the right point on the voltage wave, putting a short, 5-ms pulse of current on the line to test for the presence of faults.IntelliRupter offers you:A completely integrated package including controls, communications, power supply, and three-phase voltage and current sensing. Eliminates cost, clutter, and complexity. Controls are line-powered, no VTs needed.Easy up, easy on.All system components are contained in the IntelliRupter base for easy, single- point-lift installation. Simple conguration and operation from the comfort of your vehicle, using secure WiFi-based wireless communication.NEW! Available with IntelliTEAM SG Automatic Restoration System. This self-healing feeder reconfguration system responds to system disturbances and restores power to all the loads the system can handle. With new features like Rapid Self- Healing and IntelliTEAM SG Designer, IntelliTEAM SG is faster and easier to use than ever before.NEW! Now with single-phase tripping capability, plus optional external power supply and ber-optic com-munication.S&Cs IntelliRupter PulseCloser eliminates the need to close into a fault to test the line.Current versus TimeConventional RecloserFault from Phase Wire to Grounded NeutralCurrent versus TimeIntelliRupter PulseCloserFault from Phase Wire to Grounded NeutralPulseClosing Technology tests for faults with non-disruptive 5-millisecond current pulses.With each reclosing, circuit is stressed by fault current.Still not convinced?See an actual demo of IntelliRupter pulseclosing versus a typical recloser atwww.sandc.com/ir-demo25-kV Non-Disconnect Style IntelliRupter PulseCloserScreen shotof typicalrecloserclosing into a fault2009AWARD WINNERusa.siemens.com/power-transmissionPlant-wide Integrated Automation Solutions for Glass & Solar Power TransmissionConnecting mankindBalancing transmission grids means powering the worldVarious factors are transforming the power transmission business: the drive toward renewable energy, the expansion and interconnection of grid systems, and the need to gradually replace and upgrade aging grid infrastructures. Reliably balancing load and demand is becoming even more important with the increasing share of renewables in the energy mix and the growing importance of distributed generation.Siemens expertly supports this transformation with power transmission products, solutions, and services designed to contribute to the development of a high-performing and sustainable global transmission infrastructure. Our solutions make it possible to master the complexity of todays transmission systems, keep them in perfect balance, manage all interfaces, and make power available wherever and whenever it is required.May 2012|www.tdworld.com 2Vol. 64No. 5CONTENTSCOVERSTORYMAY20123440465460Powerlink Leads With Process BusAustralias aggressive implementation of IEC 61850 process bus solutions increases station capabilities.By Pascal Schaub and Anthony Kenwrick, Powerlink Queensland, and David Ingram, Queensland University of TechnologyTargeting the Customer Smart meters and demand response are adding intelligence to the smart grid.By Gene Wolf, Technical Writer Super Grid Increases System StabilityThe 400-kV super grid interconnection of six Arabian countries is now fully operational.By Ahmed Ali Ebrahim, Gulf Cooperation Council Interconnection AuthorityWhen the Lights Go Out Seattle City Light improves customer service with outage management.By Joyce Miceli and Tracye Cantrell, Seattle City LightCable Condition Revealed Field cable assessments at RWE Rhein-Ruhr Netzservice prove to be technically viable and economically valuable.By Andreas Borlinghaus, RWE Rhein-Ruhr Netzservice GmbHDashboards Turn Data Into InformationUnion Power turns a surfeit of data into valuable information displayed to satisfy stakeholder needs.By Todd Harrington and David Gross, Union Power Cooperative463440Never Compromisewww. hubbel l power s ys t ems . com10-111SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW WHEN TO INTERRUPT AND WHEN NOT TO.Today, maintaining an aging distributionsystem is an important part of providing uninterrupted service.
