Find out how Synaptec’s innovative solutions help system operators and renewable energy developers save costs and reduce outage times.

Automated monitoring of line sag and temperature Our sensors measure strain, vibration and temperature directly on live conductors All measurements are time synchronised Optionally measure current or voltage at the ends of the line Sensor lifespan 25 years+ Sensors require…

Monitoring challenges Global efforts to drastically decarbonise and decentralise our energy systems require more real-time visibility and control at more locations – particularly for assets which are remote or normally inaccessible. However, constraints with conventional monitoring technologies block or limit…

While supporting time-critical applications such as protection, Synaptec’s hardware and software platform also enables a wide range of additional applications which require real-time information, including visualisation, automation, alarms, and decision support. Applications such as dynamic line rating (DLR) or real-time…

Protection of mixed overhead-underground circuits There is an industry trend to underground cables due to societal pressure Overhead lines cost significantly less, but undergrounding improves reliability and visual impact These factors are balanced by mixed overhead-underground circuits (hybrid circuits) The…

As the transmission system operator of the Norwegian power system, Statnett owns and operates the country’s entire transmission grid. Following extensive discussions with Statnett’s engineers, Synaptec adapted its technology in order to resolve multiple challenges in one system: simplified busbar…

SSE Networks is one of the UK’s three transmission system operators. Over the next two years SSE Networks will integrate 80 GW of renewable energy sources on their network, and the location of these new grid connections can often be…

The importance of monitoring power quality across all turbines Wind farm power quality (PQ) is monitored to confirm that the output is within the permitted range stipulated by grid compliance regulations. Operations and maintenance (O&M) services also require PQ measurements…
