Implementation of Machine-to-Machine Solutions to Improve Quality of Service for Electrical Energy Distribution Networks in Colombia

Abstract

In order to incorporate smart elements into distribution networks at ITELCA laboratories in Bogotá-Colombia, a Machine-to-Machine-based solution has been developed. This solution aids in the process of low-cost electrical fault location, which contributes to improving quality of service, particularly by shortening interruption time spans in mid-voltage grids. The implementation makes use of a GENEKO modem that exploits its digital inputs together with a full coverage of certain required
auxiliary services so as to generate proper detection signals whenever failure currents occur; which allows incorporating the latest failure detection technology into the system.
