Estimation of Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of Electrical Feeders and Related Components

The project aims to estimate the time between (and to) failures of primary distribution feeders and their components (such as sections and joints).

In the New York City Power Grid, electricity is transmitted via primary distribution feeders between the high voltage transmission system and the household-voltage secondary system. These feeders are susceptible to different kinds of failures such as emergency isolation caused by automatic substation relays (Open Autos), failing on test, maintainence crew noticing problems and scheduled work on different sections of the feeder.

Con Edison Projects - Secondary Events

An actionable real-world machine learning project which uses NLP, data cleaning and management and involves specific domain knowledge.

Our goal is to rank the electricity service structures (manholes and service boxes) in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Queens according to their vulnerability to serious manhole events such as manhole fires, explosions and smoking manholes.
