Utilities turn to battery monitoring systems to mitigate maintenance costs and improve reliability. 24-7 battery monitoring systems enable utilities to remotely monitor their critical stationary power systems.
Utilities are turning to battery monitoring systems to help mitigate maintenance costs, achieve NERC compliance, and improve the reliability of their critical back-up power systems. With remote access to back-up battery system state-of-health information, utilities can proactively maintain the stationary power systems providing standby power for their critical utility infrastructure without...
Make sure your battery tester is ready for a full day of testing. From setup, to establishing battery reference values, and dealing with voltage creep, the CELLTRON™ Advantage Digital Battery Tester makes testing fast, safe, and easy – every step of the way. Check out the top 10 battery testing tips in this new video.
For technicians tasked with conducting manual compliance testing on DC power plant batteries, having the right tool for the job is key. Testing has to be fast, reliable, and most importantly safe. Outfitted with the latest in handheld battery testing technology, maintenance teams are executing more efficient testing programs and delivering both time and money savings.
In addition to all the new developments surrounding industry regulations, lead times have extended beyond imagination and the prices of critical assets have skyrocketed. In response, more and more utilities have realized the hard-dollar savings achieved by extending the useful lives of transformers, circuit breakers, and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) on a global scale.
Utilities employ remote monitoring to increase the resiliency of their circuit breakers. With early circuit breaker fault detection, utilities improve efficiency, extend equipment service life, and enhance reliability.
The Load Tap Changers (LTCs) inside transformers provide the critical task of allowing the output voltage to be adjusted up or down, depending upon the demand for power. Utilities armed with the position information of these LTCs are empowered with data to run their transformers as efficiently as possible. Installing INCON® LTC Position Monitoring in an existing transformer is easy regardless of...
The INCON® 1250-LTC Programmable Load Tap Changer (LTC) Position Monitor relays critical position information between a distribution transformer LTC and the LTC controller, enabling utilities to run their transformers as efficiently as possible. With over 40 years of proven service in over 33,000 utility transformers around the globe, the 1250-LTC does so much more than just monitor tap position...
Transformers are the heart of the electric utility system. The Load Tap Changers (LTCs) inside transformers provide the critical task of allowing the output voltage to be adjusted up or down, depending upon the demand for power. Utilities armed with the position information of these LTCs are empowered with data to run their transformers as efficiently as possible.
Monitoring and measuring key utility assets like circuit breakers is important, but this data doesn’t become actionable information until it gets to the right personnel with the capabilities to act on it. With expanding networks and additional assets to monitor, utilities are looking at cost-effective ways to manage their equipment performance without increasing truck rolls and headcount.
