Smart Grid Surveillance
A true digital transformation of the power grid
The power grid today is formed by linked metal wire, just like the telephone network 100 years ago. There is no built-in intelligence like in the Internet. Knowing the status of the grid is thus hard. Often, Grid troubleshooting consists of simple trial-and-error. This takes time, requires lots of manpower which cost loads of money! Meanwhile, otherwise operational areas are affected by both the fault itself and the troubleshooting process.
Smart Grid Surveillance™ performs the digital transformation and makes your grid smart. It gives a complete view of the current network status. Faults are instantly classified and located. Immediate actions can be taken to restore secondarily affected areas and send repair crews directly to the fault location. Instead of waiting for customers to call about the problem, affected customers can be directly informed about an issue and the time until it is fixed.
Dangerous situations like hanging lines or tilted poles can be detected and fixed before damages or injuries occur.
Rather than having reoccurring faults leading to costly actions, intermittent faults are tagged by location when they occur, which enables correct maintenance.
