Eneida’s system provides both alarm and warning messages to staff in charge, corresponding to instant detection of appliance failures, as single events, as much as early warning of probable future malfunctions. Thus, allowing faster and more reliable condition diagnosis of Secondary Distribution Substations and, therefore, accurate and timely responses whenever required.
Being located close to energy end-users, Secondary Distribution Substations (SDS) are equipments that always exist in large numbers, spreading throughout the territory. In order to fight the theft of equipment in SDS that affects electrical utilities across the world, it is urgent to be able to monitor the equipment, online and remotely.
Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) need an efficient and effective solution for the prevention of flooding in underground Secondary Distribution Substations (SDS). Eneida Wireless & Sensors proposes a smart sensor network system that, remotely and online, monitors the potential of flooding and controls a water pump, thus avoiding the occurrence of floods and the respective damage in SDS.
SF6 is an inert gas mixture with excellent dielectric properties, and it has been widely applied on very high voltage parts such as Gas-Insulated Switchgears (GIS) in order to reduce its size or increase the working voltage. SF6 also has a high contribution for the Greenhouse Effect so its use is deeply regulated. As well as being damaging to the environment, SF6 is heavier than air and inside GIS rooms may cause asphyxia when leaks occur.
Solar energy has been gaining ground in recent years when compared with fossil energies, due to a rapid technological development in Photovoltaic (PV) panels and batteries. PV arrangements for rural areas brought new challenges, particularly in what concerns to online monitoring and control of equipment and production in remote areas (such as in Africa).
