Distribution network operators (DNOs) assess the condition and life expectancy of large capital assets, including circuit breakers (CBs) which are critical ageing assets. This paper presents a scheme to monitor substations in South Scotland and North Wales and describes how online monitoring and analysis of protection operations is used to quickly identify immediate and evolving problems. This allows timely repairs and avoids possible CB failures with inherent mechanical damage or more widespread faults. The paper includes several case studies using examples showing a range of asset fault types.
