Monitoring Renewable Assets | Transformers, Switchgear, Battery

Increasing Reliability with Substation Monitoring

Renewable Energy is essential for the future of the power grid. Power system reliability is vital and maintaining a continuous power flow is key. Monitoring renewable balance of plant electrical assets is an affordable way to increase the reliability of your power supply.

Manage Assets Across Renewable Energy Infrastructure

Online condition monitoring reduces the risk of failure by increasing situational awareness. Monitors evaluate the assets across projects (switchgear, transformers, circuit breakers and more) 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.  This improves site uptime and generation availability.

Renewable Energy asset monitoring is easily managed on a visual dashboard to ensure ease of use.

Extend the Life of your Existing Power Assets

Replacing assets can be time consuming and costly if an unexpected problem occurs. Monitoring renewable energy assets is an easy way to get the most out of your power assets, keep your workplace safe, and make a plan for replacement as needed.

Power transformer at renewable energy plants can be subjected to excessive and harmful harmonics. This can significantly decrease the life of your transformers. Online monitoring is an affordable way to give you better visibility into the condition of your assets.

Monitoring Renewable Assets


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.

Switchgear Monitoring

Switchgear is a key asset in the substation and is links directly to the reliability of the power supply. Monitoring is easy to implement and will increase reliability, efficiency and safety in the workplace.


Smart Infrastructure Solutions

The distribution network is a huge asset, distributed over a wide area. While much of this asset hasn’t changed for decades, the use of it is changing very rapidly. With the introduction of distributed energy resources (DERs), reduced budgets and high performance expectations a new paradigm shift has been required to address the growing challenges. Utilities now need data more than ever to make best use of their assets.


Setting up proper communications is essential to the success of online monitoring. We have an option that is affordable, easy to install and secure. Our monitors have a variety of communication protocols available for your convenience.


Circuit Breaker Monitoring

Online circuit breaker monitoring continuously evaluates the conditions of a breaker. Conditions which can lead to breaker failure are identified in their incipient stages which allows time to evaluate the breaker and take corrective action before a catastrophic event occurs.


Asset Management Software

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.
