There are about 10,000 high-voltage feeders in the distribution system of Taiwan, and the total length of overhead and underground feeders is about 380,000 kilometers.

Except for routine pre-announced power outage maintenance.

If natural disasters or equipment failures occur, the feeder will trip and cause occasional power outages. 

Power outages caused by external factors accounted for about 70%, and equipment factors accounted for about 30%.

In order to prevent occasional power outages, Taiwan Power Company actively implemented equipment enhancement and improvement measures.

Such as fully covering the overhead exposed equipment, blocking the path of birds, insects and beasts to avoid accidentally touching the lines.

Strengthening the pruning of trees.

Improving the quality of power distribution equipment.

 

Preventing pipeline damage, etc., and speeding up the restoration of power through the feeder automation.
