The annual market for transformer monitoring hardware in the U.S. is forecasted to grow drastically from $113 million in 2012 to more than $755 million in 2020. Utilities across the U.S. are beginning to turn to transformer technologies to improve distribution reliability and efficiency as well as customer service and operating costs. Data from the field is the foundation of the smart grid and is quickly becoming the new currency of asset management as the industry evolves toward the implementation of asset health programs. Digitizing monitoring of substation transformers and the placement of low-voltage sensors on secondary transformers are providing intelligence to enable advanced smart grid applications and lower operational costs through more targeted maintenance work.
In this webinar you will learn about:
- Vendor and utility activities and market landscape for sensor ecosystems and software offerings
- The potential size, drivers, barriers and threats to the low-voltage sensor market on secondary transformers
- The evolution of asset health software and its interaction with on-line monitors and utility operational data
More intelligent transformers will also play a key role in enabling other smart grid applications such as power quality monitoring, closed-loop volt/VAR control, improved outage detection, and theft reduction. Furthermore, for utilities with concern about theft or a high penetration of distributed energy resources, secondary transformer monitors will become increasingly important.
