Substation Automation
This ongoing project replaces and upgrades substation automation systems, including Remote Terminal Units (RTU) and annunciators, in each of City Light's fourteen substations, and upgrades equipment at two substations annually. The project reduces the likelihood and length of system outages due to failure as the current equipment is wearing out and cannot be replaced in kind because the equipment is no longer manufactured. The project also enhances energy efficiency, and reduces the probability of fines from appropriate governing bodies if loss of a substation, due to equipment failure, causes instability of the western interconnection grid and/or loss of load.

Distribution Automation
This ongoing project automates radial distribution feeders, which includes installation of equipment to provide remote control of operations of switches on power lines and gather real time data on conditions in distribution power lines. The installation of strategically placed switches will provide the ability to automatically perform outage restoration, shift blocks of load to maximize efficiencies of feeders, and reconfigure the feeder grid. Typical operation will involve remotely detecting that a feeder fault has occurred, locating the damaged portion of the feeder between two remote controlled line switches, isolating the damaged portion of the feeder by opening appropriate remote controlled line switches, and re-energizing undamaged portions of the feeder via the primary feeder source and one or more backup sources using automatically controlled tie switches.
