Wireless Grid Monitoring
Safegrid’s Intelligent Grid System® (IGS) employs instant-on sensors and cloud-based analytics for capturing and analyzing grid events. It utilizes sensors for overhead lines and underground cables, accurately locating events using GPS time synchronization.
Safegrid’s Intelligent Grid System® products
Cloud-Based Monitoring System
GridGuardian® – the brain of our technology – is the essential core part of our Intelligent Grid System®.
- Fault location within +/- 100 meter accuracy on a map in just seconds.
- Predictive maintenance based on 24/7/365 partial discharge detection.
GridGuardian® collects the measurement data from both Grayhawk® and Grayfox®. By utilizing this data GridGuardian® generates reports, alerts, and other key features, using deep learning and data enrichment techniques providing visual GIS-based real-time monitoring.
Grayhawk® is an overhead line sensor that utilizes wireless current measurement technology, making it non-intrusive and non-contact. This sensor is wireless and seamlessly connects to GridGuardian®, ensuring instant-on functionality and a swift installation process. By using cellular networks, Grayhawk® transmits measurement data and GPS information to GridGuardian® for comprehensive monitoring.
Grayfox® is a cable grid sensor that employs rogowski-coils for non-intrusive current measurements. It is easily installed and automatically connects to GridGuardian® for instant-on functionality. By using cellular networks, Grayfox® sends both measurement data and GPS information to GridGuardian®.
Fastest and easiest to deploy
From planning to operation – streamlined process
Installation objective definition and deployment planning
Map data generation and loading; system and database configurations.
Typically 30 minutes per site by a single worker; 2 hours operator training
System automatically starts sending data for instant operationality
The installation process
Streamlined & Easy
Our wireless sensors can be installed in less than 30 minutes and installations can be done non-intrusively without any outages.
In addition, the Safegrid solution requires zero configuration or parameterization effort by the customer. Simply install the sensors and start using the system. This is a major benefit compared, for example, to traditional communicable fault passage indicators (FPIs) that require I/O-mapping and other necessary SCADA configurations per sensor.
The GridGuardian® monitoring and analytics system is entirely cloud-based. Therefore, it provides complete visibility and actionable fault alerts from the entire grid. Our software can be operated simply as a standalone monitoring system. The benefits are clear: swift and easy deployment into production, enabling fast lead time from procurement into production.
While the GridGuardian® is designed to function as an independent grid monitoring solution, integrations are available whenever needed. As operators typically use multiple different systems, such as DMS, OMS and ADMS systems, integration to these has been made easy via the Safegrid REST-API. Integration enables you to visualize the fault locations in an existing monitor, export the fault locations to be part of DMS/OMS fault management process, or manage organizational tasks for field patrol works
