Overhead capacitor banks while highly effective are notorious for blowing fuses requiring manual patrols and inspections of the capacitor assets to verify that they are operating properly.

Download this Application Guide to understand the general purpose and the use case for using the grid monitoring platform with smart grid sensors to monitor capacitor banks so utilities can maximize their savings byCapacitor bank monitoring with smart grid sensors:

 

  1. Spending their capital asset dollars in a much more efficient manner
     
  2. Limiting field visits and taking action only when there is an indication of an issue
     
  3. Taking full advantage of the voltage and VAR benefits originally estimated in their capacitor bank investment.

 

“Getting data from the grid through sensors makes business sense. We are now of the mind set to monitor everything”
