Substation Monitoring

Typical substation monitoring solutions are expensive and time consuming. Tollgrade offers a simpler solution: the LightHouse distribution monitoring platform. When deploying LightHouse Smart Grid Sensors at unmonitored substations, utilities can achieve much greater visibility and reliability without installing costly backhaul communications like fiber optic lines.

 Capacitor Bank Monitoring

Capacitor Bank Monitoring
Instant Detection Of Blown Fuse Events

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.

In this Application Guide, you will learn that with the simple implementation of LightHouse Smart Grid Sensor solution is a far more effective and affordable solution than patrolling line looking for blown fuses.

Identifying Worst Performing Circuits
Improving Circuit Performance

Proper identification and tracking of their Worst Performing Circuits (WPC) allow utilities to improve their overall reliability metrics and avoid heavy penalties imposed by most Public Utility Commissions (PUC).

In this Application Guide, you will learn how LightHouse Smart Grid Sensors helped a North American utility target tree trimming activities and make improvements before their circuit landed on the WPC list.
