Ensto Smartcloser is an autorecloser installed on overhead distribution network. It detects and interrupts momentary faults. If the fault is permanent, it automatically isolates the faulty section of the network.
The use of reclosers prevents customers from suffering electrical outages. Each outage corresponds to a cost for Electrical Utilities (e.g. loss of energy sales) but also for customers (e.g. loss of production for commercial and industrial). Indicators such as SAIDI and SAIFI help to measure the reliability of Electrical Utilities.
Adding Ensto Smartclosers to the network is a simple and cost-effective solution to improve network reliability, decrease outage duration and thus save money.
