Fault location, isolation, and service restoration (FLISR) is a software application that reroutes powers in the event of a fault to restore power to as many customers as possible, as quickly as possible. Service restoration times range from sub-second to seconds depending on the type of FLISR solution used.
There are two main categories of FLISR – decentralized and centralized:
|Decentralized FLISR||Survalent's Centralized FLISR|
Due to the expense and complexity of maintaining scripts for every possible scenario, centralized (model-based) FLISR is typically the ideal solution when you want to set up FLISR on more than 10 devices in your network. By being able to adapt to any network configuration, centralized solutions like SurvalentONE FLISR can help avoid the widespread, sustained outages that cause customer outrage, make newspaper headlines, and result in high profile public inquiries.
That doesn’t mean you have to choose one or the other. Advanced model-based solutions like SurvalentONE FLISR let you have the best of both worlds. You can set up decentralized FLISR in areas where restoration times are critical and, for the rest of your network, take advantage of the scalability of a centralized solution to turn a sustained outage into a momentary outage for customers outside the faulted area.
