S&C Launches Asset Monitoring Services for Critical Electric Grid Equipment

By Greentech Lead America: S&C Electric
Company, a provider of electric power systems equipment, has unveiled
new asset monitoring services for critical electric grid equipment at WINDPOWER

These services include PureWave CBM Condition-Based
Monitoring for S&C’s PureWave family of power quality products. PureWave
CBM, powered by AlsoEnergy’s cloud-based software platform enables equipment
owners to improve the reliability of their power systems and extend equipment

S&C also introduced asset monitoring services for
S&C automation and communications products as well as other products not
manufactured by S&C, such as power transformers.

Proper maintenance of critical equipment is essential for
a reliable grid. At renewable energy plants, asset monitoring is an important
first step in a proactive asset management strategy. By properly maintaining
the equipment that connects plants to the grid, owners of wind farms and solar
energy plants can maximize production and reduce the risk of costly disruptions
to plant operations.

S&C uses pre-installed or deployed sensors to
gather real-time condition information on critical equipment, and monitors this
equipment 24 hours a day at S&C’s Global Support & Monitoring Center.
In the event conditions fall outside normal parameters, an alert is sent to the
technical experts on duty.

S&C’s asset monitoring services also improve electric
service reliability for end users.

“Problems with critical grid assets can result in
prolonged outages. S&C’s new monitoring services can help our customers
identify and rapidly address issues with major equipment that otherwise could
lead to costly service disruptions – along with expensive equipment repairs –
if they are not addressed proactively,” said Wanda Reder, S&C vice
president, power systems services.

S&C teams with McAfee to enhances security of smart grid

Recently, S&C collaborated with McAfee to bundle
application control software from McAfee into S&C’s PC-based control
platforms. This bundling will help S&C enhance the security and protection
of its control platforms.
