Traveling Wave Fault Locators-TWS MkVI Traveling wave fault locator


Manufacturer: Qualitrol show products

A device that provides extremely precise fault location on mulitple lines enabling operation and maintenance engineers to respond rapidly to events to correct defects at minimum cost and maximum efficiency.

Description

A device that provides extremely precise fault location on mulitple lines enabling operation and maintenance engineers to respond rapidly to events to correct defects at minimum cost and maximum efficiency.

7 ways TWS can save time and money and improve reliability:

  • Reduce line patrol manpower costs
  • Reduce aerial patrol costs
  • Prevent re-occuring faults
  • Reduce power quality impact of ‘preventable faults’
  • Eliminate separate substation clock
  • Reduce costs to maintain system security during line outage
  • Reduce cost of regulatory fines due to power outage

Features

  • Accuracy to ±500 feet (±150 meters) independent of impedance methods
  • Reduce downtime by getting to the fault site faster
  • Track intermittent self clearing faults and focus maintenance at the right spot to prevent a major breakdown
  • Results automatically displayed and e-mailed
  • Fast installation and set up on multiple lines - no line or substation outage required
  • Modular, reliable hardware
  • Flexible communications

Options:

  • Up to 8 line modules to monitor up to 8 circuits
  • GPS card, pulse output - optional 1pps or 1ppm selectable

Applications

  • Fault location on interconnected overhead lines where high reliability is important.
  • Accurate,consistent results for all types of faults quickly displayed in a control room or engineering center where the information is needed to direct maintenance teams and reduce downtime
