Sentient Energy® Grid Analytics System™ v6.0 Sets New Standard for Distribution Grid Visibility and Control

Oct 19, 2021

Intelligent Line Sensors Deliver More Precise Fault Detection The company’s flagship MM3 overhead and UM3+ multi-position underground intelligent line sensors are now able to provide accurate measurement of fault current magnitude up to 10kA within 2% accuracy and distinguish between line to line and line to line to ground faults (A/G, A/B, ABC, ABG). With more precise fault locations identified, utilities are often able to preempt an outage or reduce duration, improving both SAIDI and SAIFI scores. The augmented sensors capture distribution grid data, which is analyzed by advanced fault detection algorithms to identify faults in real-time. Through integration with SCADA, DMS, or OMS systems at the utility control center, the sensors deliver precise fault type and location information and improve the effectiveness of ADMS distance to fault calculations. With more precise location and fault magnitude information, operators significantly reduce patrol time and outage duration, lowering O&M costs and improving service quality. ZM1 Low or no Amperage Sensor Extends Monitoring and Analytics to Rural Circuits with Support for Lateral Lines & Feeders     The latest version of the ZM1 is a low to zero-amperage intelligent line sensor that captures high-resolution power system data. This advanced line sensor extends critical line monitoring and analytics to rural or remote areas, which account for approximately twenty percent of distribution lines in North America. Using a ten-year battery, the ZM1 is designed for distribution lines including laterals, feeder tie points, and other rural distribution circuits. Improved Transport Level Security Improved TLS security protocols in the Sentient Energy Grid Analytics System v6.0 ensure all communication between the sensor to the Ample® analytics software are encrypted. The software also provides a system access audit log, and customizable security settings to meet customer requirements. Enhanced TLS security protocols are an advancement in protecting distribution grids from bad actors and external security threats. QR Code Installations Speed System Deployment Using an automatically generated QR code, operators can rapidly install and configure sensors to operate within their distribution grid. This rapid deployment reduces time to value for large distribution grid installations, minimizes operational expense associated with deployment, and simplifies the addition of new or replacement sensors in the grid. Enhanced reporting   New reporting capabilities inside the Ample® platform include five standard distribution grid performance reports which are configurable to meet specific business requirements. About Sentient Energy Sentient Energy, a Koch Engineered Solutions company, is the premier provider of intelligent sensing, data analytics, optimization, and control technologies for the distribution grid.
