Voltage sensors on both sides of the circuit breaker allow the use of reclosers in a ring network without any additional expenses.In the opinion of the utility’s expert team, Tavrida Electric reclosers meet all the requirements of operational reliability and ensure the efficient operation of the distribution network. New projects are planned for implementation in 2018.
