IntelliTEAM II® Automatic Restoration System
Available from S&C Electric Company
IntelliTEAM II is a self-healing, scalable feeder reconfiguration system that’s applied with electronic controls, radio or fiber-optic communication, and feeder switching/fault-interrupting devices. This field-proven Smart Grid solution automatically reconfigures the distribution system after a fault and quickly restores service to segments of the feeder which aren’t affected by the fault. No SCADA control or central monitoring is required. Decisions are made locally, based on real-time loading data.
IntelliTEAM II uses the excess capacity available from any alternate source — conventional, wind, distributed energy resource . . . even battery storage — to restore service in seconds to unfaulted line segments. It never overloads any part of the system. IntelliTEAM II substantially reduces “Customer Minutes of Interruption” (CMI), markedly improving your reliability ratings.
The rules-base algorithm needs no custom programming, extensive validation, or testing. IntelliTEAM II readily handles additional devices as your system grows . . . multiple contingencies too. It not only provides out-of-the-box restoration power, but the flexibility to select the priority of restoration.
IntelliTEAM II is a universal solution. It offers unmatched interoperability and can automate new as well as existing circuits. Since its introduction in 1997, thousands of IntelliTEAM-equipped devices have been deployed on utility overhead and underground systems around the world.
