Global electricity companies have embarked on a transition to digital microprocessor devices. Digitalization penetrates every aspect of power industry, whether it is power generation, transmission or distribution. Being the most widespread, the distribution electrical networks are nevertheless the least digitalized. Some issues about them are still insufficiently studied. These are the collection of necessary information, adaptation methods, and the effect of the unrecognizability of some short circuits. This can be explained by improper placement of devices, which causes lack of data, which, in turn, leads to the failure of relay protection and emergency control systems of distribution electrical networks to provide selectivity. The paper proposes algorithms for placing measuring devices so that the information will be collected properly. Placement of the devices will allow adjusting the operating parameters of the relay protection and emergency control systems depending on changes in external weather conditions and load fluctuations in the network. We propose a technique for control of distribution network, taking into account the type of damage in case of emergency in real time, and a technique for placement of measuring devices and creation of an information communication network.
Key words: distribution electrical network / survivability / relay protection and automated systems / adaptive setting / overhead power line / microprocessor measuring device / information communication network.
