Advanced research on Integrating Emerging and Existing Systems (ARIES) 

Fault restoration in a Smart Grid takes considerable amount of time resulting in interruptions in day to day activities. ARIES project with the primary objective of (Autonomous) Fault Isolation and Service Restoration [FISR] is aimed at drastically reducing Customer Minutes of Interruption and Number of Customers Interrupted. Autonomous Fault Restoration improves the efficiency, situation awareness, operational intelligence visibility of utility engineers and operators and self-healing nature of smart grid. This research focuses on grid data requirements, testing, analysis, data processing and implementing appropriate corrective actions keeping interoperability issues and industry standards in consideration
