Today, utilities experience unprecedented challenges associated with power delivery. An aging grid infrastructure coupled with satisfying increasing consumer demand, meeting stringent regulations, avoiding peak-time cost penalties, and integrating alternative energy sources into the grid are factors utilities must consider to improve power delivery and reliability. More data collection points enabling greater grid intelligence are required from feeder locations beyond the substation to ensure the grid is optimized to address these challenges.
Current and voltage sensors are the critical sensor technology that enables feeder intelligence to drive decision-making for a variety of important grid modernization applications. Utilities benefit from increased reliability and efficiency by decreasing energy costs, protecting revenue, avoiding costly regulatory penalties, and boosting customer satisfaction. Maximizing these benefits requires understanding grid conditions throughout the entire feeder network. ABB now offers the DistribuSense current and voltage sensor product family to realize these benefits.
