SynchroGuard facilitates the integration of renewables and improves grid reliability and efficiency
SynchroGuard is the first grid monitoring and control system based on sub-second and time-synchronized measurements from micro-PMUs (Phasor Measurement Unit) and powered by patented algorithms.
SynchroGuard is a combined hardware and software solution which consists of multiple measurement devices (micro-PMUs) placed at strategic locations and a central grid controller which implements algorithms to analyze the measurement data. These algorithms provide to the electrical utility a real-time view of the energy flows in the grid with advanced grid analytics, enable automatic control of Distributed Energy Resources (e.g., renewables, electric vehicles, batteries, etc.) and automatically locate faults in the grid. Also, SynchroGuard seamlessly integrates with legacy DMS/SCADA systems. Thanks to these features, SynchroGuard guarantees the following benefits: Up to 80% reduction of SAIDI via automated location of the faulted section; Up to 50% less grid reinforcement for DER (distributed energy resources – renewables, electric vehicles and storage) integration via real-time monitoring and automated control of voltage and power flows; Increased operator’s visibility on the grid state and reduced reaction time in case of hazardous situations; Optimized grid planning and asset utilization via advanced grid analytics; Reduced CapEx and OpEx via reduced installation costs and optimized grid planning and operation.
