Condition Based Monitoring for Utilities Increases Reliability and Safety

Utility system reliability is essential for keeping the lights on. Substation equipment is aging, monitoring provides users with the ability to see real-time data that shows the condition of their assets which can prevent unplanned outages. This allows utilities to make smarter investments with maintenance budgets into their equipment and mitigate catastrophic failures.

Collect Data on your Substation Assets

Online condition monitoring reduces the risk of failure by increasing situational awareness. Monitors evaluate the equipment in your substation (transformers, circuit breakers, switchgear, 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. This information allows utilities to optimize maintenance plans and performance of their assets to changing system requirements.

Substation asset data is easily managed on a visual dashboard to ensure ease of use.

Extend the Life of your Existing Assets

The power system is aging and failure can be unexpected and costly. That is why it’s important to have a plan in place for risk mitigation. Substation monitoring gives you the data to make education end-of-life calculations for your assets. This data enables asset managers to make informed decisions when to take emergency outages or wait until already planned outage to perform corrective actions.

Communications Solution

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

Sensors & Accessories

Bushing Sensor

Dynamic Ratings 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.

Switchgear Monitoring

switchgear monitoring

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. The switchgear monitor configuration may also be combined with Dynamic Ratings SCM to provide partial charge monitoring of the switchgear bus and connectors, allowing tracking or faulty connections to be detected.

Visualization and 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.
