MAXIMIZE YOUR ASSET PROTECTION AND LOAD MANAGEMENT

Today's power grids need to operate at the highest possible safe ampacity level.

To protect valuable power cable infrastructure, high safety margins are often applied. These can limit the efficient use of your power cable infrastructure. AP Sensing is the Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) and Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) solution provider for your power grid. Our power cable monitoring solution balances the need for asset protection and network performance optimization. 

DISTRIBUTED TEMPERATURE & ACOUSTIC SENSING

AP Sensing's Distributed Fiber-Optic Solutions (DFOS) for temperature and acoustic measurements, together with our proven RTTR/DCR engine and unique SmartVision™ asset visualization and data management software, give you the ideal solution to monitor and protect your power infrastructure. DTS provides continuous monitoring of high-power cable temperatures, detecting hotspots, delivering operational status, condition assessment and power circuit rating data (Real Time Thermal Rating - RTTR/ Dynamic Cable Rating - DCR). For sea cables, the RTTR engine computes the burial depth of the cable (DoB). DAS offers accurate cable fault detection and location as well as TPI (third-party interference) protection both on land (digging and drilling) and subsea (anchor drops and drags). This helps you optimize transmission and distribution networks, while reducing operational costs. 

SMARTVISION™

AP Sensing's SmartVision™ management suite shows the condition of your circuits at a glance, controlled by an easy-to-use graphical interface. It seamlessly integrates many DAS, DTS, CCTV and other sensors into a single platform. Circuit layouts are mapped and color-coded to show the measured cable temperatures, as well as instantaneous changes in acoustic energy. Temperature graphics and hotspot tables are readily available. Sections of the cable route can be individually defined for flexible alarm levels and types. 

APPLICATIONS

Our solutions monitor key application areas, including:

  • HVDC/ HVAC underground power cables
  • Power cable joints, terminations, tunnels and trenches
  • Export cables, array cables & interconnectors
  • Overhead lines & transformers
  • Utility tunnels
  • Substation equipment

As we develop our products from the research and manufacturing stages, to the project commissioning and maintenance, AP Sensing offers a completely integrated, end-to-end solution. Our team works together with you to select the right combination of technologies to fit your requirements. We also provide onsite services, hotline support, maintenance and product training.
