Optimal detection and location of faults is tantamount to correcting them and restoring power to customers efficiently.
More than 20% of electrical outages are vegetation related. Grid Sentry products find the limb before it falls.
It is believed that up to $6 billion of electricity is pirated in the US, which would put it on the list, as the third most stolen item, after credit card data and cars.
Phase balancing of voltage and current reduces waste, balances demand, lowers friction and heat in loads, increasing the resiliency of the Electric Grid and reducing costs.
Effective monitoring of mission critical transformers at power stations and substations and other assets located on the power grid insure its reliability.
With real-time insight, the smart grid automated key processes, easily locating and rerouting power around trouble spots, reducing truck rolls and saving costs.
Temperature monitoring is a fundamental tool which improves Electric Grid Distribution and operations in many ways, providing substantial savings.
Fault monitoring systems operate in seconds and can be set up with the ability to “self-heal” an otherwise “broken” Electric Grid.
Utilities save energy, lower costs, and reduce generation expenses with the ability to shave peak load, shape load, and curtail load to mitigate grid events.
The benefits of deploying remote sensing in an Electric Grid are tremendous. Often, payback is a matter of months and can easily be justified.
Knowing “Where to place the X” is the expertise that Grid Sentry can help with during the evaluation and deployment phases.
Grid Sentry has worked with hundreds of utilities in remote sensing deployments. Learn from us to jump start your distribution automation project.
