Power Generation Monitoring | Dynamic Ratings Monitoring Solutions

Help Extend the Life of your Power Assets with Condition Based Monitoring

From sensors to software, Dynamic Ratings helps power generation facilities extend the life of their electrical assets through condition based monitoring. Improving reliability can lead to increased uptime and maintenance savings. We design, manufacture and integrate innovative sensors, monitors, and controls for data collection, analysis, and diagnostics.

Collect Real-time Data on your Generation Assets

Ensuring the most efficient and profitable generation sites requires maximizing site availability.   Effectively managing changing load conditions and contingency events requires a balance of generation sites. Monitors evaluate the assets across your network (rotating machines, switchgear, transformers, circuit breakers and batteries) and measure their performance to make sure everything is working properly. If something looks out of place, an alarm will notify you of the problem allowing utilities to keep their generation sites working at optimal performance levels and reducing unnecessary downtime associated with time based predictive maintenance.

Asset monitoring is easily managed on a visual dashboard to ensure ease of use.

Delay Asset Replacements by Extending Their Life

Loss of electrical service can result in a huge loss of revenue. Online monitoring helps you see the condition of your assets so that you don’t have unexpected failures. This allows for the extended life of your asset improving the return on original equipment investment.

Condition-based Monitoring for Power Generation

Transformer Monitoring

There are many areas on a transformer that can be monitored. Dynamic Ratings’ experience and global expertise can help you determine the solution that meets your needs. We offer a variety of transformer monitoring options such as temperature, bushings, partial discharge, OLTC, key gas, through faults, harmonics, voltage control, and more. Learn more about our solutions for transformer monitoring.

Rotating Machine Monitoring

RMM Partial Discharge Monitor

The Rotating Machine Monitor (RMM) provides data regarding the health of the stator winding insulation in medium voltage motors and generators through continuous on-line partial discharge monitoring. Applications with variable frequency drives (VFDs) can be monitored with a RMM as well. Consider maximizing the data your RMM monitor collects with the use of the optional RTD-PD Sensing Module. Modbus communication protocol is standard, with DNP-3 available upon request. Applications include Generators Iso-Phase, Non-Seg bus duct. and motors.

Switchgear and Circuit Breaker Monitoring

Switchgear Monitor SCM

Circuit breakers and switchgear are critical components to the reliability and safety of any power system. Circuit Breaker Monitoring can detect operating deficiencies well before failure.

Switchgear is a key asset in the substation and is links directly to the reliability of the power supply. The Switchgear Monitor (SWGM) provides continuous online condition-based monitoring for switchgear. It is easy to implement and will increase reliability, efficiency and safety in the workplace.

Sensors & Accessories

RTD for Partial Discharge

Dynamic Rating offers a wide variety of sensors to monitor the condition of electrical apparatus. Dynamic Ratings’ patented line of sensors is manufactured in-house to ensure the highest quality and accuracy requirements are consistently met.

Communications

iBridge Communication

The iBridge Power Line Communication System delivers data from any intelligent electronic device (IED) affordably and securely in high noise environment with easy installation using existing power lines. By using an existing wire, you minimize engineering costs, reduce schematic revisions, and avoid trenching or adding new copper wires or fiber.

Data Visualization

DynamicMetrix® incorporates the experience of the Dynamic Ratings team to consolidate all your condition data, analyze the data in real time and deliver a complete fleet assessment while giving you the ability to obtain detailed information, make timely decisions and take the appropriate actions to maximize reliability, performance and the life of your assets.

Athena Diagnostics Software supports Dynamic Ratings partial discharge monitoring systems for configuration, data storage and provides tools for presentation and analysis. Athena runs with the Windows® operating system.
