Today’s Electric power utilities need to control operational and maintenance expenses within their T&D networks while reducing costs and maintaining reliability. The vast majority of electric grid companies are faced with the fact that most all are faced with an aging infrastructure and outdated equipment. In response, utilities are deploying intelligent sensors for managing and monitoring critical assets in the grid that take advantage of proven technologies.
These newly developed intelligent sensors provide automated monitoring schemes which enable reduced maintenance costs and improve reliability of critical assets. These devices allow electrical grid operators to implement remotely operated condition based monitoring solutions without having valuable maintenance staff in the field… saving both time and money.
Deploying these advanced sensors leverages the expertise of the most knowledgeable substation engineers to monitor substation assets remotely and centrally without the need of manual, periodic inspections.
