Schneider Electric has launched its Intelligent Loop Automation solution. The company says the solution is composed of a certified set of architectures and configurations to manage fault location, isolation and service restoration (FLISR) automatically on distribution feeders in response to network conditions, including faults, outages and load imbalances.

Supported by Schneider Electric's U.S. Energy Applications Center, utilities can deploy switchable devices, control units and remote terminal units with a Loop Automation configuration that is tailored to their supply feeders. When a fault occurs, Schneider says the system will automatically open switches on either side of the faulted segment to isolate the fault and restore service to unaffected segments in less than one minute.
