GRID-DETECT – Monitoring System
Thermography-based IR Substation Monitoring
The IR Substation Monitoring System GRID-DETECT uses infrared (IR) technology to monitor the temperature of substation components to secure the reliability of substation. Thermography cameras in combination with visible cameras and pan-tilt head observe the substation area and thus allow predictive maintenance.
The temperature measurements are made fully automatically without the need of any manual interaction. The system GRID-DETECT automatically raises a warning and alarm if an adjustable temperature threshold is passed. This prevents dangerous substation component failures and saves the reliability of the entire substation. GRID-DETECT automatically tracks the temperature development of different substation elements. This allows reducing maintenance costs, failures and unplanned outage of substation. GRID-DETECT comes with highly reliable components in a flexible structure and thus, is easily adaptable to the different situations and operational modes in substations.
