MAXIMIZE YOUR ASSET PROTECTION AND LOAD MANAGEMENT

Today's power grids need to operate at the highest possible safe ampacity level.

To protect the infrastructure, high safety margins are applied which can limit the efficient use of the power cable infrastructure. Real-time thermal monitoring balances the need for asset protection and network performance optimization. Distributed Temperature Sensing provides continuous monitoring of high power cable temperatures, detecting hotspots, delivering operational status, condition assessment and power circuit rating data (Real Time Thermal Rating - RTTR, Dynamic Cable Rating - DCR). Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) provides fault detection as well as TPI (third party interference) protection both on land (digging and drilling) and subsea (anchor drop and drags). This helps you optimize the transmission and distribution networks and reduce operational costs.

HIGH VOLTAGE POWER CABLE MONITORING

Circuit layouts are mapped and color-coded to show the measured cable surface temperatures. Temperature graphs and hotspot tables are readily available. Sections of the cable route can be individually defined for flexible alarm levels and types. 

Our DTS system, together with our proven RTTR (real time thermal rating) engine and unique SmartVision™ asset visualisation and data management software, gives you the ideal solution to monitor and protect your power infrastructure.

Key application areas include:

  • HVDC/ HVAC underground power cables
  • Power cable joints, terminations, tunnels and trenches
  • Identify offshore hazards and fault location
  • Subsea power cables and substation equipment
  • Overhead lines
  • Transformers
  • Complementary DAS (distributed acoustic sensing) to detect third-party interference (TPI) and faults
  •  COMMITMENT
  •  RELIABILITY
  •  QUALITY
  •  EXPERTISE
