A clear picture
The Landis+Gyr S650 Smart Grid Terminal for transformer station monitoring and control will become a crucial component for advanced low voltage distribution network infrastructures. The terminal provides cover for multiple application areas by one device, including energy balance settlement, non-technical loss detection and network optimization, as well as Power Quality analysis.
A key area for the application of the smart grid terminal platform is the monitoring of low voltage transformer stations. The transformer stations are vulnerable points on the electrical grid where distribution service operators often battle against significant energy losses.
Residential smart meters, in combination with smart grid terminal in the transformer stations, are a perfect and cost efficient way to detect non-technical losses and increase their ability to optimize the network to reduce losses of any kind to a minimum.
Benefits of Transformer Monitoring:
- Increase low voltage visibility
- Easy to install
- Network optimization
- Basic Power Quality
- Asset protection and management
- Get alerted when abnormal events occur
