Rolling with the Punches: Workforce Resiliency in the Face of Disasters and Pandemics


Series: Grid Resiliency: Planning and Response
Date: 11-12-2020

ComEd is on the forefront of adopting a communication assisted protection philosophy, which enhances the efficiency of identification and isolation of a fault. Enhanced communication between DA devices will also assist with faster restoration of de-energized segments making the distribution system even more resilient.

In this session attendees will learn:

  • What motivates a utility to overhaul an existing distribution automation scheme that has proven successful over the course of 20+ years
  • What roadblocks must be overcome in order to implement an enhanced fiber-based distribution automation scheme
  • Secondary benefits to the grid provided by enhancing a utility’s distribution automation scheme with fiber optic communication
