Switchgear recently commissioned



 

A group of engineers and technicians gathered at the base of a NOJA Power OSM recloser installation to commission the company’s first reclosers in the US state of Pennsylvania. Among them were representatives of the local municipality, the local engineering consultants, the local contractors, and delegates from the recloser manufacturer. On arrival to the site, the teams found three OSM recloser systems, already installed on poles by the local teams. Despite never seeing the equipment before, the installation process was easily accomplished by the local power utility. The local municipality had installed these reclosers to replace ageing assets. As the team began the commissioning process, it demonstrated the simplicity of implementing settings and loading them into the controller. A few hours later, the commissioning was over for all three reclosers. The settings were loaded, tested and recorded, with the installations inspected and current/voltage measures checked.
