- We overview the current distribution automation system in Korea and point out the limitations of the distribution services which can be provided by the current system. In this paper we propose a new distribution system architecture which is based on the peer-to-peer communication model. In this decentralized architecture the intelligent FRTUs can initiate data transmission without any interruption of a central server, and can exchange data with other FRTUs as peers. In order to support the peer-based distribution system, we specify the requirements for new communication network and suggest a way of improving the current distribution network where we adapt an intelligent module for protection and restoration, called MASX, and utilize the open communication network protocols. We also show how the new architecture can enhance major distribution services such as protection, automatic restoration, and equipment management.
