AGI and outage management

When the power fails, utilities need to find the fault location quickly so trouble crews can restore power. AGI nodes can be equipped with last gasp capabilities that allow the OMS software to narrow down fault location to the protection zone of the device. AGI nodes can also confirm power restoration to verify that service has been restored.

Additionally, utilities can more quickly determine the fault location by adding AGI nodes throughout the distribution network. The AGI node information enables the utility to narrow down possible fault locations, reducing the overall investigation time.
