  • Smart Cable Guard
    Smart Cable Guard boosts reliability of power networks by preventing 70% of avoidable failures in distribution cables. The online monitoring platform tracks the health of cables in real-time and detects and locates weak spots within 1% of circuit length....

  • Don't be left in the dark. Prevent failures and improve grid reliability.

    Smart Cable Guard is an online monitoring platform that continuously tracks the health of distribution cables in real-time. Sensors are placed at both ends of the cable and monitored remotely by a machine-learning algorithm. 24/7 surveillance of partial discharge activity by our experienced analysts ensures weak spots are detected and located within 1% of the circuit length. 

    With 3,000 systems installed on 4,700 miles of cable, Smart Cable Guard has a proven track record:

    Reducing the frequency of power outages (SAIFI)

    Utilities using Smart Cable Guard reduced the number of distribution cable failures substantially. Our weak spot detection informs network operators in advance, so power can be rerouted during maintenance work.

    Reducing average outage time (SAIDI)

    Some outages are not caused by weak spots, but by external influences, such as excavation work. When this happens, Smart Cable Guard alerts you within minutes and pinpoints the location of the failure, reducing repair time by 30-40%.

    More safety and efficiency during maintenance

    When you know the condition of a distribution cable in real-time, your team no longer has to spend hours investigating the status of (aging) assets. The power can even be left on during online monitoring. In addition, knowing the location means that weak spots can be found more easily and the time on site is significantly reduced.

    Outstanding grid investment

    With global electricity doubling from 19% to 36% by 2050, grids need to operate closer to their limits while maintaining reliability. Grid operators need to embrace digital transformation to make real-time decisions that ensure cost-effective and reliable operations. Utilities using Smart Cable Guard have seen a positive annual return on investment.

    Large industries and wind farm operators have even experienced 100% ROI after avoiding a single outage.

    Our promise to you:

    •             Compatible with all major cable types and distribution voltages, up to 69KV

    •             A high level of support at all stages: Implementation, monitoring and advice from experienced analysts when a weak spot is discovered.

    •             API integration with other asset management systems (SCADA, WMS, distribution automation)

    •             24/7 partial discharge analysis based on our machine-learning algorithm, assessed by our experienced analysts.

    •             Actionable real-time alerts. Receive alerts on when and where maintenance is required and which cables can wait.

  • Cascade
    Utility asset management enables electric utilities to manage critical assets, tracking age, usage & maintenance history. Asset performance management enhances asset management, with data analytics, condition monitoring & predictive maintenance....

  • Streamlined implementation and access to asset information

    Cascade is developed specifically for power utilities and its list of long-term customers ranges from utilities with just a few substations to large regional or national utilities. With the latest release of Cascade, utilities can choose a streamlined implementation on-premise or in the cloud. This means small to midsize utilities can now more easily tap into the power of Cascade and DNV’s industry expertise, regardless of their APM maturity.

    Cascade supports technical asset management and predictive maintenance, allowing you to optimize your data collection, analysis and operations for improved reliability and regulatory compliance. As your utility advances its APM strategy, Cascade has additional modules and a wide range of integrations to match your needs. This allows improved data stewardship and access to a single source of truth for asset data. Cascade makes it easier to access and interpret data for all stakeholders, while reducing the administrative overhead.

    Cascade for electric utility asset management

    Is available with flexible solution configuration and deployment options, including on-premise and cloud-hosted for secure and performant access for all users  

    Consolidates equipment diagnostics, nameplate, and real-time data, providing a true picture of equipment status for substation asset management 

    Helps eliminate dependencies on departmental data siloes 

    Lets you identify the impact of potential equipment failures on your organizational operability 

    Allows you to prioritize condition-based maintenance while avoiding unnecessary and costly interventions with optimized substation asset management 

    Helps you ensure that critical maintenance and testing is not overlooked, using predictive maintenance and preventive maintenance for substation asset management 

    Easily integrated directly with most leading enterprise resource planning (ERP and EAM) systems and utility-specific software suites interfaces with a wide variety of test equipment as well as real-time and asset repository data

    Provides standardized interfaces for tools from leading industry diagnostics providers including Doble Test Assistant, Delta-X (Transformer Oil Analyst), Powerbase, and FLIR thermography images

    Allows SCADA and online-monitoring data to be automatically evaluated and captured as equipment reads 

    Includes flexible licensing options to fit nearly any implementation, large or small, and in support of simple or advanced electric utility asset management, substation asset management and predictive and condition-based maintenance strategies

    System implementation of Cascade utility asset management software includes professional service options covering introductory workshops on condition-based maintenance software, the necessary planning, data migration and import, installation, training, technical configuration and advice, and enterprise system integration.

  • Synergi Electric
    Synergi Electric is a comprehensive circuit analysis and modelling software program for power distribution engineers. Synergi Electric models the power system, including detailed loads and generation, from substation to customer....

  • Advanced modelling solution 

    Power distribution companies are facing ever increasing challenges to provide safe, reliable and cost-effective energy solutions. Advanced modelling solutions such as Synergi Electric are needed to cope with new regulations, distributed generation, new technologies and extreme weather events. With Synergi Electric you can better understand the performance of your system, as it provides you with the intelligence you need to make decisions that drive business performance, safety and reliability, while mitigating risk.

    Analysis tools for planning 

    Synergi Electric incorporates a full suite of analysis tools to perform short and long-term planning studies. Demand levels, voltages, loading and spare capacity can be evaluated each hour of every day over 12 months or 10 years. It includes tools for load allocation, phase balancing, capacitor placement, PV placement and load balancing. 

    Renewables and Distributed Energy Resources (DER) 

    Models for PV and wind generation are easy to set up in Synergi Electric. Load-flow, fault analysis, hosting capacity and time-series analyses evaluate the impact of these generators. Time and weather conditions are modelled in Synergi Electric to represent real world output of PV generators, combined with detailed load models that provide the most accurate representation of your distribution system. Synergi Electric also models large battery energy storage systems and a variety of control models.

    System protection
