As society demands for an ever more reliable and sustainable energy supply, distribution system operators (DSOs) are driven to minimize the impact of faults in their grids and reduce network losses. This paper describes a method for optimal placement of distribution automation (DA) in closed-ring medium voltage (MV) distribution grids, resulting in a more efficient distribution of electrical energy, while ensuring reliable grid operation.
