SEL Partners With Xcel Energy to Showcase Smart Grid Technology at the Political Conventions

As a Smart Grid Consortium partner, SEL promotes distribution automation solutions—including recloser controls, protective relays, and information processors—that improve distribution reliability as part of a smart grid. These solutions rapidly isolate faults, restore power, monitor demand, and maintain and restore stability. The smart grid monitors and controls the electric power system, providing analytics, situational awareness, and asset management to improve power delivery. Distributed intelligence facilitates reliable control of advanced generation technologies.
