GOMEZ, Víctor A; PENA, Robin A  and  HERNANDEZ, Cesar. Identification and Location of Distribution Systems Failures Through Service Quality Meters of Electric Power. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.2, pp.109-116. ISSN 0718-0764.

A new methodology for identifying and locating faults in distribution systems of electric power is proposed. The installation of electronic meters to record the electrical service continuity is proposed. These meters facilitated the detection of permanent faults or transient non-homogeneous networks, providing information about weaknesses in power systems. This allows adopting corrective action with respect to the duration and frequency of interruptions in the circuits of local distribution systems. The proposal mitigates the discontinuity of the service and the significant costs for the electricity companies and especially for the users of electricity.

Keywords : electricity interruptions; electrical continuity; distribution systems; faults.
