It is realised that 80-90″% of all the faults held on overhead lines are transient in nature. Thesetransient faults create long lag in restoration times if done manually. Auto Recloser’s primary objectiveis to reduce outage time in distribution lines by providing rapid restore to power lines. It is done byautomatically closing the line after a pre-determined delay.Usually, the temporarily faults would clear themselves in first or second dead time. In case, the fault isof permanent nature the Recloser will enter into lockout state after giving the final closure attempt.After the breaker is in lockout condition, it remains in Open position until it’s manually closed by anoperator.
