'Bidoyng' smart fuse developed in 2010 by Electricity North West for use in substations.

The ‘Bidoyng’ smart fuse is one of several smart technologies installed on the electricity network in north west England. If the primary fuse in the unit blows, a secondary fuse automatically deploys. It also communicates information about faults to the network control centre. This helps prevent power cuts and improves service to customers.
