This report provides a list of fault mitigation measures for the medium voltage level (15 kV to 50 kV) that results from previous project experience, as well as a review of the information available in technical papers, literature, manufacturer’s information, etc. The list includes both traditional approaches and new methods for fault mitigation (including mitigation measures under development).
In addition to the literature review, a survey has been prepared and sent to utilities in North America (USA and Canada) and Europe. The reasoning for each of the questions in the survey, as well as the compilation of the responses from participating utilities, is summarized in this report.
