As part of the SliceNet project, Efacec have devised a SmartGrid Self-Healing solution. With access to modern wireless technologies like 5G, the algorithm resorts to high-speed peer-to-peer communication to provide a fast and reliable self-healing solution. When a fault in the grid results in a power outage, the area affected by the outage is significantly reduced and the power grid operators quickly identify the location of the fault. Outage time is reduced for a large number of customers because the algorithm promptly re-configures the grid automatically, powering the healthy line section from an alternative medium voltage feeder.
