Recent advances in switch technology have allowed for standby energy storage systems to be utilized in less than a half cycle. The term sustained interruption, describes a situation in a commercial utility system where automatic protective devices, because of the nature of the fault, cannot bring power back online, and manual intervention is required. This terminology more accurately Read More
