    Abstract

    Traditionally, electricity distribution companies have used private communication networks to control medium-voltage network components such as substations, reclosers, disconnectors, and transformers. Proprietary technologies such as microwave links, narrow band VHF/UHF radios, and private mobile radios were often applied. Today, 3G and 2G cellular packet based networks can provide data connections almost anywhere with much lower costs. Those radio access technologies are proof-tested in mass markets, and their availability and reliability improve as the mobile technology evolves and the variety of mobile data services increases. Our goal was to implement a tool to assess the utilization of commercial mobile networks for the remote control of future electricity distribution networks. This is done by calculating coverage redundancy in different fault scenarios
