CURRENT Power Quality Analytic Sensors Selected For Low Carbon Network Initiative

CURRENT’s Connected Intelligence power quality analytic sensors have been chosen for a pilot project for UK’s transition to a low carbon network.

CURRENT is a provider of utility grid infrastructure and associated software solutions. Its sensors have been chosen by the Western Power Distribution (WPD) and the UK Power Networks for the initiative. The Office of Gas and Electricity Market's (Ofgem) Low Carbon Networks Fund (LCNF) is providing funds for the LV sensor evaluation project. The LCNF is funding many other similar projects. Around £500M has been set aside by Ofgem for funding these projects.

CURRENT’s Connected Intelligence power quality analytic sensors product portfolio is being used by both UK Power Networks and WPD for their projects. The portfolio consists of event management, advanced sensing and communications solutions. The products have a power quality analytic engine along with sensors that can be installed on live networks. The sensors enable asset monitoring, analysis of power quality, profiling of load and detection of any events that may occur at the transformer station for distribution. For monitoring of the network and grid, the CURRENT's OpenGrid enterprise software will be utilized.

The UK Power Networks and WPD projects will make use of "smart analytics" for collecting and analyzing the data about the electric grid. This will help in improving the understanding of effect of low carbon technologies on electric networks.

CURRENT’s distribution and power quality sensors are to be exhibited at the IEEE PES T&D 2012 in Orlando.
