1 Integration of Smart Sensors into Utility Operation and Business Practices Ryan L. Rausch, P.E. Product Application Engineer, Eaton s Cooper Power Systems

2 What is a smart sensor? Sensors are nothing new CTs/PTs Transducers Faulted Circuit Indicators (FCIs) What makes a sensor smart? Digitization of data Communications 2

3 Why smart sensors? Smart sensors address the rising need for more data visibility into the grid to drive operations and automation Diverse market and applications Advancing technology Good price point 3

4 The need for data The nature of serving load is changing Load is more complex and sensitive Sourcing load is more challenging Infrastructure is near capacity Consumer dependence on reliable and high-quality power is greater The nature of the workforce is changing Lost resources and experience as the workforce ages Increased dependence on automation and technology to close the gap 4

5 Data integration IT Get involved early! Plan for hardware resources, secure network architecture Telecom OT Build-out or expand private radio networks Manage public cellular accounts Identify systems that would utilize the data (SCADA, OMS, DMS, data historian) Parallel integration effort in those systems 5

6 Applications Faulted circuit indicators Capacitor bank monitors Distribution system monitors Load profiling Voltage monitoring Power quality monitoring 6

7 Communicating FCIs Reliability Reduce CAIDI/SAIDI Reduce crew time for restoration events Reduced O&M spend Hydraulic recloser monitoring Vegetation management 7

8 Communicating FCIs SAIDI/CAIDI reduction ri Ni SAIDI N T CMI N T CAIDI r N i N i i CMI CI Reduction in duration accomplished by targeted dispatching of crews to a fault Strategic deployment of sensors Integration into operations center Accurate naming/phasing Fault current magnitude for model-based fault location 8

9 Communicating FCIs Condition-based maintenance on hydraulic reclosers Preventative maintenance based on operation counters and fault current magnitude Diagnose coordination issues Vegetation management Watch for high momentary fault counts Dispatch trimming crews to areas with the most trouble to maximize the benefit for the investment 9

10 Capacitor Bank Monitors Utility data suggests that 30% of capacitor banks are offline at any given time Missing VAR support Wasted capital spend O&M spend on routine inspections Better solution: condition-based monitoring 10

11 Capacitor Bank Monitors Monitor the cap bank neutral for an abnormally high current, indicating a phase imbalance Actuate an alarm Dispatch a crew to inspect the banks on exception Reduce or eliminate routine inspections Benefits: Less O&M spending on inspecting banks with no problems Identify problems that may not be apparent on visual inspection Problems addressed, VAR support restored sooner 11

12 Distribution System Monitors Load Profiling Smart sensors with load profiling ability can provide an inexpensive SCADA solution for small rural substations Load profiling can provide valuable insight for system planning to multiple places along a feeder or at critical loads 12

13 Distribution System Monitors Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR) Reducing voltage along the feeder is a proven method by which to reduce demand and energy Voltage monitoring with smart sensors can serve as feedback to prevent violations of ANSI standard voltage ranges 13

14 Distribution System Monitors Power Quality Smart sensors can monitor the distribution line for voltage sag/swell events or harmonic distortion in response to customer complaints Smart sensors with low cost of installation can serve as mobile troubleshooting tools 14

15 Conclusion The market for smart sensors is diverse and expanding Be aware of the technologies available Keep in mind the primary needs of the business Know how the solution will integrate into the utility s daily operation 15
