The proposed system for monitoring number and duration of power outages and power quality in 0.38 kV power networks makes it possible to shorten the power supply restoration time by approximately one hour by reducing the time for obtaining information about the damage and by approximately one hour by the reduction of the time for determining the location and type of damage. Besides, the effect can also be obtained by minimizing power quality inconsistency time with the standardized values. The sensors of the monitoring system are proposed to be located at customer inputs or at several network points, for example, at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of the power network as well as at the transformer substation bus bars.
