The monitoring and automation of power distribution systems has significantly improved with advancements in digital signal processing (DSP) and in computer and Web-based technologies. Power distribution systems could realize benefits from an improved instrumentation and measurement (I&M) configuration for network reconfiguration and meter placement. Drexel University has developed the Reconfigurable Distribution Automation And Control (RDAC) laboratory; it has a power distribution system in which various meter placements and network reconfiguration techniques can be implemented and studied. The authors designed a unique and flexible I&M system consisting of software and hardware instruments to perform network reconfiguration and meter placement studies; it can adapt to power system planning and operating scenarios. This system in the RDAC laboratory is tested and present the results in this paper.
