Real-time distribution grid monitoring and automated fault management system

Project description

Automated grid monitoring with a simple and cost-effective retrofit

Optimising power grid operation to pre-empt or react quickly to faults has always been both critical and challenging. With the increasing integration of renewables and emphasis on efficiency, this has become even more important. Current solutions require the installation of current and voltage sensors at every measurement point to accurately monitor and respond to grid events, requiring significant work and downtime. The Swiss SME Zaphiro Technologies has developed SynchroGuard, the first solution that can be retrofitted to existing distribution grids by taking advantage of voltage sensors already installed, without causing disruption. The EU-funded SynchroGuard project is helping the team take this real-time, cost-efficient technology for automated grid management to market.
