Abstract

This paper primarily addresses the subject of reducing outages or reducing the outage duration, auto-restoration applications for transmission substations, (where 'transmission' is defined as 69 kV and higher), and the subject of proactively preventing outages. This paper is a summary of the report of K3-WG for transmission systems. The contribution of this paper includes the presentation of the state-of-the-art, practical techniques and measures for preventing and reducing outages in transmission substations which, if properly adopted, can significantly improve transmission system reliability.
