SynchroGuard - A real-time monitoring and automation solution for smart grids.

SynchroGuard is a solution for smart grids which facilitates the integration of renewables and improves the electrical grid efficiency and reliability.

Thanks to measurement devices and advanced data-processing algorithms, it provides to utility operators a real-time view of the grid status, enables safe integration of renewable energies and electric vehicles by efficiently managing power flows, and improves grid reliability by accurately locating electrical faults in order to reduce the number and duration of power outages. It uses of synchrophasors that are very frequent and synchronized measurements of voltage and electric current. The goal is to support electrical utilities in the power grid modernization and digitization that is mainly driven by increasing power generation from renewables energies and electric vehicles as well as stringent regulatory requirements.
