Powercor refcl animated explainer
Powercor is working hard to ensure that consumers are told the truth about electricity. This animated explainer was developed to help explain a key bushfire mitigation project, the installation of REFCL (Rapid Earth Fault Current Limiters) to key zone substations within the Powercor network. These technologically advanced systems work to prevent fire by sensing when powerlines come into contact with items such as trees and immediately cuttting the power to those lines, preventing fire, while boosting power in the neighbouring lines to ensure continued power supply. It’s a complex story that required a simplified explanation.
