Smart grid concept substantially increases the need of monitoring devices in the future for efficient and flexible power delivery. Secondary substation is an ideal location for monitoring both LV and MV networks which can be used to improve the power grid resilience. This study presents the key features and practical experience gained from the deployment of novel wideband high-frequency current transformer sensors for monitoring power quality as well as partial discharges at MV side of the transformer. Additionally, a network simulation is carried out using real-time digital simulator to test the possibility of detecting an earth fault cost-effectively at MV side of secondary substation.
