How do you maintain discrete control of complex power systems when parts of it are hidden underground or under water for acceptable cost?

In fact, how do you improve the visibility and control of individual cable sections underground or under water without the significant capital cost of civil works, telecommunications and power supplies to monitor them? Is the fault overhead or underground? Which cable contains the fault if there are many connected in the same system?

From societal pressure to practical and operational considerations, there are many reasons why more and more operators are undergrounding power lines. However, the traditional way to instrument cable sections, using electrical or optical CTs, is too expensive. These systems are complex to install because they require power, data networks and buildings and require skilled installation and maintenance.

Synaptec provides a solution that eliminates those costs and goes further, making it more scalable, cost-effective and reliable. In this webinar we will show how a single Refase™ system is uniquely capable of instrumenting up to 16 cable sections over a 100 km range with our passive sensor arrays. No more civil works, telecoms, or power supplies, no vulnerability to environmental conditions, and no more complex installation.

Learn with us how we provide discrete, robust, and scalable differential current monitoring over wide areas, with measurements maintaining consistent high accuracy over wide operating temperature ranges when compared to traditional electrical and optical technologies.
